capturing hope by cryingsorceress capturing hope by cryingsorceress
*runs and reaches goal* Yes for time zones! I really wanted to finish this before 2007 :]

Anyway. There are two interpretations to this, depending on whether you're an optimistic or pessimistic person. Personally, I'm a pessimist, one of those "the glass is half empty" person. The basic thing is... can we actually hold hope in dark times? We try to capture hope and hold it close to our heart. Yet hope can't be captured; it overflows. You can interpret it from there =p

I know where the mistakes on this are :X It took me so long just to change the colors of the dresses and make them match and God I'm so sick of ruffles-things now. The huge splat of dress that represents hope leaking out is like combined from 3 pictures of a dress. It took me so long to blend that into the dress of the model. :faint:

Did painting on the model. I'm not sure why I painted those strands of hair over her eyes but it had a nice effect, hehe.

Happy New Year everyone! :w00t:

It's quite nice, but I don't know if the light/dark parts look good together.. and the skull is kind of random. But it's alright.

Oo.....

Digital couturing FTW lol. Though you should have taken the bottom dress stuff and just plastered it on the model, texture doesn't match Oo

Else, nice. Pessimism FTW!
