View Full Version : Victorian Postcard, Susi Lawson (2D)

Title: Victorian Postcard
Name: Susi Lawson
Country: USA
Software: Painter, Photoshop

I used photoshop to paint the girl using airbrush and also did some acrylic painting in Corel Painter. I used a photo I took of a cracked mud puddle on a layer for the crackle effect. Made the border by decreasing the size of the top layer and erasing the edges and applying a drop shadow. I took the image of the flower and pasted them into the picture for a more victorian look. I used the smudge tool #36 charcoal to give the background a painted look and cloned this around the bottom of the girl.

I agree with Amauri - the piece is wonderful. On a smaller note, I think the drop shadow looks artificial. Also, maybe if a green slightly darker than the background was applied around but behind the girl, she would come out a bit more.Not only is the composition good, the rendering is great as well. :)
