The Invocation Of Lilith
When I 1st saw this photo all I could imagine was something occultic, not some Fairy Tale theme like Little Red Riding Hood. I wanted to work on some other projects  (like the one I'm concurrently working on now) but this just seized my imagination until it was all I could think about. It took me a few days to complete and I'm glad I got that out of my system, NOW on to other work I'm DYING to get finished. Here's the source of the original photo:…

Many Thanks to the Photographer and Model for this photo-turned-portrait:

David Bollt (photographer):…

Holly Loveday (model):…

and a special Thanks to :icontigers-stock: for the use of the Ring of Fire and the flaming Pentagram:

Katrina White's portrait 1
This is definitely another favorite of mines now that I mastered Sifu Infelice's style of shading with Gradients. My 1st attempt was pretty amateurish and not very good, this one I'm definitely proud of, esp since I only used 15 or so layers. :woohoo:

The Model I chose for this project is Ms. Katrina White, here's the original source of this portrait:…

and here are her other links:………

"Forever Be My Valentine" was supposed to have bee the last but at the last min I found this a few days ago and couldn't resist, it was BEGGING for a Valentine's Day portrait!

Forever Be My Valentine
Ahhhh Love is DEFINITELY in the air and this is yet another Valentine's Day-themed portrait featuring Alice, the "Princess Of Darkness". She doesn't look as evil as she usually does in this one which shows her versatility. I saw this photo and knew it was made to be created into a work of Art (although it already is). :nod:

Mia Sola'sportrait by boot-cheese-3000
Mia Sola'sportrait
This portrait has been a looooooooooong time coming. When I 1st wanted to do a portrait of Mia I had a difficult choice ahead of me, there were so many gorgeous and ravishing pictures to choose from. Finally when I saw this one I knew I had found the right one. I should've done this a few years ago but it never happened but hey, better late than never right? Esp now that my Ps skillz have majorly improved. :icongrin--plz:

As far as that starscape...................


should've went with my 3D-rendered starscape instead of using some cheesy-ass Ps brushes. Now I remember why I never use them :laughing: Fortunately my Nebula Fractal covered up how crappy they look, plus it definitely makes this portrait POP along with the sparkle in her eyes that was already there but brought out more by yours truly.

Here's this talented young lady's Cosplay acct where she designs and makes ALL of her costumes:


Done in Photoshop CS4. Nebula Fractal rendered in Apophysis.
............and to all a good GOOD holiday season:

I would definitely like to thank :iconlupsiberg: for the use of her parameters of "Challenge 106":

Music by "Little" Stevie Wonder (one of my ABSOLUTE faves.........)

Thank you for all the birthday wishes and I apologize to some of you for not responding but as you can see I've been busy with stuff like this. Have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.:santa::iconreindeerplz::holly:
