Oh my the stock icon didn't work when I used it for PersephoneStock. My apologies. I do not know if it is possible to edit this, so I will here. I am not even sure what the emoticon is that is showing in the icon's place.
It is so true that great art is timeless. Here I am two years after you submitted this beautiful photomanipulation for the Think Pink II contest, admiring your talent. Congratulations on that win by the way. I can see why you won. I am new to deviantART and this was one of the first pieces I added to my favorites. As many others have commented, I love the soft colors used in this creation, and of course the beautiful cherry blossoms, and how you enhanced that great stock photo.
I admire your digital painting skills and your great attention to detail that can be seen in how you painted the hair. I too have used this great stock photo from but my digital painting skills are limited (no graphics tablet) that I used hair brushes. I would love to know how you created the cherry blossoms. Somebody else asked this and you said it was 3D. Does that mean that you created the cherry blossoms when you made the background in Renderosity and View?
I was so impressed with "Celebrating the Life" that I had to explore your gallery. What can I say? You have amazing talent. I look forward to examining your work in more detail.
