Sweet Sorrow by Susaleena Sweet Sorrow by Susaleena
"Life should be seven parts sweetness and three parts sorrow."

Unfortunately, life is too cruel to be actually that sweet^^; The real world isn't always so kind...

I was really inspired to create a manipulation with a violin in it after watching this touching, sad, and sweet thai commercial (with eng subs):[link]

I felt compelled to manipulate something like that (with a bit of a fantasy theme of course):aww:
-tried making a crystal violin and failed:tears: I didn't know how the background looked so I couldn't exactly make it transparent =x It just came out all blue. Oh well:shrug:

Hope you like!

That's fine by me :) The photo was originally a stock anyways. I just manipulated it to look more "fantasy"-like. I would love to see your finished final when you're done:nod:

Hmmmm ... I guess you could either paint in the concealed area of the body, or use photos of crystals, maybe? Interesting problem.

Oh, I love the colours. They look so soft and calming! And I always liked people playing the violin, I always think the pose looks very proud and dignified. The flowing hair only makes it perfect! : )

Ah! thats gorgeous *sniff* so much emotion in a single image, that one's worth 2000 words... yes the word is cruel :( but hopefully, when we find something that's truly worth it... it'll make up for all the crap...

P.S. where is that quote form?

Oh and the quote? I made it off the top of my head after being inspired by an Asian artist's voice~

Not just all blue! i see many different beautiful shades of blues along with your violin is a color representing rain or energy to me. Resembles Final Fantasy! to have your art be original but also take on aspects of Final Fantasy is an outstandingly inspiring feat!!! :heart:
