Yes, I indeed feel lonely.
The month of August has been extremely rough for me, rounding out of a nice depression spell yesterday. Even though I feel miles better then I did 24 hours ago, I'm still going through some tough emotions about myself. So to express those feelings I made this card, and unsurprisingly it's my favorite yet. Strong emotions (especially sad ones) are an artists best friend and I've always been more inspired when I create when I'm sad.
It took me a while to find a suitable picture too, I wanted an angel picture but I couldn't find any good ones that were sad. But when I found this picture, it fit what I wanted to capture.
In photoshop I copied the picture, desaturated the copy, then erased the butterflies of the desaturated copy to give it those pops of color. Then I slapped some gradients and played with the blending modes. And of course ended with some nice sparkles for good measure!
I hope you guys enjoy!
Dedicated to zombieusagi for recommending me to ItachiSasuke's feature on her world. It was quite the surpised today and really made my day! And also thank you to those who subbed me! I love you all! :D
