"The blood pours from my heart,
The words "Goodbye" fall from my lips,

The rays from the sun shine down,
As they expose a celestial deity from heaven.

The vision of you stays in my eyes,
As every memory of you and I plays through my mind."



---->This is not a digital painting.
-This photo manipulation was done entirely with the smudge tool.

This is a great piece. Your use of the smudge tool is impressive. I love the expression. I would give you an "Advanced Critique" but I really can't think of anything that would improve this. Very nicely done.

Hey, this is almost unbelievable. Amazing how transformed it looks from the original photograph.

I love the hair, ooh, and the dark, detailed eyelashes.

Gorgeous piece. :)

Not bitching about smudge tools. Although the skin looks a bit blotchy... might wanna blur it a bit...
Looks way cool :D

well everything looks quite realistic, the hair seems to be sticking to the head just a tad to much!...it's making almost impossible twists and turns...but thats really just a small remark...u can also look at it as a nice swinging touch...but it just doesn't really look naturalistic...that's all

Anyone who says this is anything less than the most gorgeous form of art can go get mauled by a parakeet. This is absoloutely beautiful. Would you consider making it a print?
