Milky Way by Cynnalia Milky Way by Cynnalia
Wow...I just realized it's been well over a year since I have done any digital painting/coloring - I've forgotten how much I loved it! :heart:

This was done for the "Hair" June contest at :iconcolor-me-club:

The beautiful lineart is done by *Drowning-Comic


Even though I've spent the last year doing photo-manips and not painting, I found that so much of what I learned on my manip journey helped here, especially my comfort level with layer blending modes, the image adjustment menus and my experience with making textures.

Created in Photoshop CS5/2 - took about 16 hours. The hair! o_O I finally had to say "stop!" because I could futz with the hair forever! :D

The background I uploaded to my stock account: ~Cynnalia-Stock [link]

Additional Credits:
Galaxy: `Mithgariel [link]
Star dust brush: ~Sunira [link]
Ice waterfall brush: *deviney [link]

You're one of my choices. Things I love from your picture:

The waterfall effect
She has an arabic look, looks more mystic that a blond or pink-haired XD
Clever use of the pose adding the falling stars.YES.
