Please view large (it looks creepy otherwise!) I used 12 different resources and shots of my own to include my wife’s face (on an elongated model), a castle in Germany, the hill that stonehenge is on, a hedge from the botanical garden in Bath, England, a butterfly from the butterfly hut in Mannheim Germany’s Luisenpark and some different textures I have in my folders. Title is from the song by Tori Amos by the same name.

    How wonderful this is!!! You say you used an image of your wife’s face…? The woman here looks like a drawing or a painting…how the heck did you do this?!! :) Fantastic work! Love it!

  • Thanks Laurie, if you look at my piece called Bouncing Off Clouds you’ll see the same face and hair just reversed and then I elongated the neck of another figure, made the skin more pale, bulged the eyes and pinched the nose and mouth to change her appearance some. In fact this figure I then reused in Black Dove but changed the hair, eye and dress color and used “new” arms. I think I’m going to do a series with this figure if they prove popular but so far the response is minimal. That is why I really appreciate your comments and faves! Thanks!

    Thanks for the explanation, Jeff….although I still don’t know how you did it, lol….But I really think this work of yours is brilliant, and I hope more people find it!!! :)

  • I guess I won’t be writing any tutorials anytime soon :) If you ever have questions about my work or methods, please ask and I’ll be happy to (try at least) explain them. Thanks again, Laurie.

    LOL…I wasn’t saying that you’re not a good teacher….I meant that I don’t even know how to do things like bulge the eyes!! I’ve seen people do it before…Is it a special program or something??? :)

  • I’m sure there are many ways to do the bulging and pinching, but I used the liquify filter in Photoshop CS4 (which I was lucky enough to finally get!)
