A little something different from me here.
Back in 2006, after longing to learn how to do photo manipulation for quite some time, my husband lovingly encouraged me and bought me PS CS2 and a pen and tablet. First it took some getting used to the whole pen and tablet, funny that now I can't stand to use anything but. Then, learning PS. I tried and tried and would always end up getting frustrated and walking away. Still trying over the years, along the way I became quite good at "make overs". If only I could show you what the original of what THIS looks like. Perhaps another example of my attempt at photo manipulation is THIS and THIS. All 3 of these are from my older account at ~CindeeRoo. Still, more like make overs. I've been okay with that as I feel like I learned a lot and became quite good at it.
So, recently my son's friend, Ian, allowed me to "play" with a few of her own pictures. I stumbled upon a tutorial by *B-r-a-c-i-a-t-a and decided to give it a whirl. This is my result. and I'm quite proud of it. I know that I need to practice more on hair ... that was always my downfall and shading/lighting, but non-the-less I am so excited with my results, as is Ian. She's been a great muse for me and I am grateful to her for allowing me the honor of "using her"

BTW ... the title comes from THIS SONG. It seems to fit the image and is one of Ian's favorites
I just love all the fun you put into your comments with many cute emotes you know ... and you know so many
