A small birthday gift, and a token of gratitude, for my really good friend
Thank You Artie for everything, especially for being such a sensitive friend, immediately picking up, when something is wrong, and someone needs help. And also for being so awesome. And for Your long and very detailed comments. And fro all our conversations... aaand that list can go on, and on...
As much as I like to do new things, I also like to correct past errors. I kinda dropped the ball on wetness in my picture for Flutterbella, so I decided to put more emphasis on it in this picture, while changing setting to rain, making it a little more challenging this time around.
And to an extend... I feel like I succeeded. I had some doubts about how to make black parts of hairs on black paper, but surprisingly this might be one of the best hairs I ever made. I also decided not to leave as sharp - black shadows on the coat as I usually do, due to the proximity of light.
I hope You'll like it and - Happy birthday my dear friend
Take care of Yourself Artie
