Thanks to Peechez2010 for modeling in the mask, she is truly the best!

It is a bit on the darker side, but it is also the newest addition to my The Dark Masquerade series.

    Ohhhhh Shutterbug….this is one sweet piece of work! Instant fav and then some. You gave it the perfect extra touches to really make it stand out. Hold on to your hat because this one is going to go over really well. Also, thanks for the sweet note in the description ;0)

  • Thanks Peach, I had intended to finish this piece and post it on the first, but you know how the last two days have been, oh well…better late than never. ( Or you could also look at it as extremely early for next year’s holiday! ;~)) I’m really glad you like how it turned out! There are a few more new additions to the Dark Masquerade, hope people will bear with me…been seeing a lo-o-o-ot of Christmas images cropping up already, that’s your cue Peach!! ;~)

    IPhone it ! ;-) Love the deep contrasts without losing detail . Red and black are two of my faves ! With a dash of yellow of course ! You know flaming pumpkin style ! ;-)
    Wow ! I just noticed that redbubble actually allows smiley face noses now ! ;-)

  • Thanks Marv, glad you liked this one, I’ll have to get it on a iPhone…soon. Have a few more to add to the series I’m working on, kind of stuck in the dark side for a while…my flashlight went dead! ;~) Do you mean these smiley face noses :~)? ;~D

    Yeah except for your noses seem to be crooked ;-) Remember they used to cross whole sentences out . Defeated the whole purpose of using them ;-/ It always made humorous remarks look like sarcasm ;-/ Not that sarcasm is a bad thing ;-) I just like to be in control of it . Instead of redbubble deciding to wield it for me randomly ;-)
