  Dearest by In5omn1ac   Dearest by In5omn1ac
It's been awhile hasn't it?

I created this one with a thought of creating a web-layout at first. Then the more I worked on it, I thought it'd look good just as an artwork. So I continued on... Done everything in Photoshop 7. No filters other than the 'noise' filter. I also only used the default brushes (round ones) and a pen tool. Flowers were also drawn/illustrated/painted in Photoshop.

***I wish I had a tablet. It would make my artsy life 10000X easier to do this kind of stuff. ***

Concept : Realistic vector based artwork.
Symbolize : my memories in text, behing a torn and used cover. I called it Dearest which explains those memories to me.
Colors : static and calm represents my feelings at the time I was making it.
Overal meaning : Flowers represents myself as a person, how I love to make people happy. Calm and passionate (red touches in flowers with the cool color surrounding. You can see.. warm and cool at the same time.. Which is me in general. I can be very welcoming and friendly.. yet I can be very distant as well.

any feedback is always lovely and appreciated!
Thank you for viewing!

o__O Nice design. I'm sad that the pretty flowers had to be torn up. Haha. The ripped paper is my favorite part
(though it destroyed those flowers. x3)

Interesting that you used the mouse. Makes me want to work harder as an artist. (I don't have a tablet either. T__T)
Keep up the great work~

I confess, I really admire this art. It is linked under my favorites, and, don't tell anyone, it's on my christmas wishlist to get it as a print. But I guess, I will have to wait for some more christmases until i can do that....

It is gorgeous, in case you couldn't tell from my words :lol:
