Hello Everyone , :D

This is actually a not so new work of mine, I actually did this almost two weeks ago I think, I had left one unfinished detail on it and I finally got around to finishing it so Tada... I finally have it the way I wanted it. XD

This is such a happy piece for me to do, because I love the scan so much I just love Archery and bow and arrows so when I saw this scan I had to take it and use it for something. So Im sorry if it isnt the best of the best.

I love the background, because I wanted a background that was calm and yet the colors were close the girls skin color. I cleaned up the scan of the girl alittle bit because she was to light colored that she didnt look right anymore. The background just came to me, so I just used some mountain brushes in the background. Got a moon brush and changed the hue and saturation, color balance, contrast, duplicated the layer and blended the top layer and set it on a low opacity on top of the bottom one. Then I had used a brush on low opacity and went around the sun very lightly with some yellows and oranges to make the soft light from the sun as it sets. The sky is a stock photo that I played around with some. I did have cloud brushes for the fog, but my best friend Starr told me they looked blurry so I went and found a bunch of fog brushes and made the fog the way I wanted it. The sky looked empty so I wanted some thing more up there, so I placed some birds in there. Im sorry if the scan isnt my best extraction, but I couldn't tell what I was doing half the time she was so light in some parts that I had to do alot of guess work on her, so I hope that was good enough. I really do LOVE this one.

EDIT/UPDATE: Cleaned the scan better & made the string at the top off the bow lighter, and fixed my name. Thanks so much animanga, I cleaned the scan again a different way, thanks for telling me how last time. :D

    Wow, it's pretty sweet ^_^ As you said, the scan certainly is beautiful. You can't not like archers with massive bows ^_^ I do wish that she had some more clothes on though, but I suppose you can't have everything ^_^' The background looks simple, but it's really nice too. I love how you did the mountains and overall mist ^_^ Thanks for sharing ^_^

    As an afternote, it looks to me like half the string is either missing, or extremely faded. You can see it crossing the dress but it's really faint, and it seems to completely disappear at the arrows in the quiver ^_^'

    Its Mina! I like the fact that she takes up most of the space; and the mist in the background lays real well.

    Wow, what a gorgeous girl ! ... but still, not as gorgeous as you are ! ! ! Yep, great title, Sunset Beauty, that's what popped into my mind when I first saw this. You know how much I love sunsets, so I guess I don't have to mention I love your wallie. ( HAHA, I dit it anyway ) It looks really great and I'm surprised it didn't get 'elited' yet. Great job my love, I really like this ! Flawlesness once again ...

    Your sunset lover, your Kira
