Artist Comment

This image's foreground material is obtained here in MT, uploaded by Marissa. The scan's image reminded me of someone who comes for pilgrimage, and so there came this image :).

I modified the scan by removing her cross-necklace (I think it's unrealistically too big). It left me with some retouching obligations, but I'm kinda happy with the result, anyway. ;)

The picture's background is imaged as cemetery area, to follow with the aforementioned "pilgrimage" theme. I added the shades-of-blue to give impression of sadness-and-loneliness. This also left me with option to discard her hair color (it was brown until I add the layer) -- but then I think, "hey, we can get the atmosphere right with it; some color can be traded-off..." It wouldn't be the same if I left her hair as it was -- so I chose to give it the blue-tone, which then I feel happy with it.

Comments and inputs are welcome. Please tell me if you have advices... ;)
