Thanks y'all! As I said in another post, when I do digital art instead of . . . manual art? I feel kind of like I'm cheating because it seems so easy. Even though I did take the photo myself, and photography itself is a type of art, and I painted and erased the clown makeup for like an hour before I got it the way I wanted, so in all senses of the word I did "make" it, it still looks to me like not nearly as much effort as those of you who cut out all those little fiddly bits by hand.
These are all so cool! SinDoll, I kind of get what you're saying about digital. I like everyone else's digital work, but for my own I sort of feel like I'm "cheating" in a way, probably because I've been messing around with photo manipulation since the late 90's as a hobby, so by this point I find it really easy. But then again, I still agonize over every detail and try things a bazillion different ways until I get the look I want, so it still takes me just as long.
False_desire, my sister makes and sells feather angel wings, and if I had any pics of them I'd show you, but I don't. But . . . I did a google image search for feather angel wings and there are lots of pics if you want inspiration for how to arrange your feathers, although I think it looks mighty cool as is.
tristitia, I love your card! Your hairstyle goes perfectly with the theme!
