Heart Of Glass by boot-cheese-3000
Heart Of Glass
"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!

You ALREADY know:…

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:

Original source of photo:…

Done in Photoshop CS4.
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.
Be My Valentine by boot-cheese-3000
Be My Valentine
Here's another portrait of a good Friend of mines whose becoming my new muse--Glemt-Grav. She's been pretty down in the dumps and depressed recently so I decided why not cheer her up and make a portrait of her? It definitely cheered me up working on it seeing as my Life has been getting a bit stressful lately but fortunately I'm not allowing the pressure to get me down like in the Past. Here's the source of the original photo:…

Done in Adobe Photoshop CS4
Be My Bloody Valentine by boot-cheese-3000
Be My Bloody Valentine
Well seeing as Valentine's Day is approaching pretty soon I just wanted to make my own contribution but in my own style. Most people want to do cute candy hearts and such--not me. I'm not a huge fan of the Holiday due to one too many heartaches not to mention I've had some pretty bad luck on that Holiday. This portrait was inspired by this photo:…

Done in Adobe Photoshop CS4
............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:

so when are you gonna do my portrait? hehehe
boot-cheese-3000 Featured By Owner 1 day ago
Hey sweetheart! I recognize that ug mug ANYWHERE! :laughing:

If you want me to do a portrait of you it would be my pleasure. Right now I've currently put my concentration on a story I'm writing, a Comic Book/Graphic Novel project I'm working on with another member on Shadowness. I think the story might be right up your alley judging by your macabre photos. :nod:

Trust me, when I get started on your portrait I'll let you know. It would totally be my pleasure. :love:

How do you make your images btw?
they are photos ? or you draw them completely
with reference of course
boot-cheese-3000 Featured By Owner Feb 17, 2015
You mean the Vector/Vexel portraits or my work in general? I use references for some and my imagination for others when it comes to my Traditional work. With the Vector/Vexel portraits they've been from photos used as references.
