:3 I'm mainly making this for critique's sake. Lately I've gotten better at this sort of art, so I'm wanting to get a little more involved in it. :D

The newest image I made recently is called Sigil Keep. The problem I had with this one is the lighting and hair. DX If anybody has tips, please share xD

The photos used:
Model: http://la-esmeralda-stock.deviantart.com/art/149-264753776
Background: http://ashensorrow.deviantart.com/art/Premade-Background-749-170532009
Accessories: http://diza-74.deviantart.com/art/decor-7-257401253 & http://diza-74.deviantart.com/art/decor-12-259094489
I drew the sigil myself XD I don't know if it's anywhere near correctly done, but I try. :P

This is all done in Photoshop cs5 and with a Wacom Bamboo tablet.

The only thing I can comment on your piece is the large spots of white in the lettering takes my attention away from the rest of your picture.. Everything else that has white in it seems to have a glow yet the letters do not so it stands out more. Putting that aside though you did a really good job with the concept and making sure everything was clean and blended and I really like your sigil :)

I also have to add I love using ashensorrow's stock as well :)

AshenSorrow is amazing :33

You're right, I'm thinking I should have made the white a medium-light blue, so that it only semi-blends in but is still there, prominent~.

@ Runa and Jazzminesong: Thank you~ :D

@ Eyeris - SWIIIIIIRLYYYYYYYYYYYYyYyYyyyy ^___^

It's been quite a while :D I had some serious time on my hands when MW was down, as you can imagine, so I've made a bunch more art. I'll be linking directly to the DA page as opposed to uploading all the pictures to MW because I'm lazy... sorry. x3 Laziness trumps. It won't happen again, I promise x3 Also, it's not ALL dark this time.
