Gold Leaf Sleaze by elrothiel Gold Leaf Sleaze by elrothiel
Wow, second submission in just a few days! Aren't I being a good girl! :lmao:

But aaanyhoo, yes! This is slightly different to my "normal" way of manipulating photos... for one thing this isn't part of my "Anti-Angel" series thing... BUT I'll probably use this stock again for exactly that.

BTW, this lovely stock is by ! She's got beautiful stock, and I must add her to my watch list!! Can't believe I haven't already!! Naughty I am!!

... continuing the description! I called it "Gold Leaf Sleaze" because this piece just reminds me of a young girl who has perhaps gotten involved with a rockstar who lives to excess, and he's covered her in gold leaf and uh... accidentally got it in her hair, but it turns out to be a happy accident because it actually looks kewl!

And rockstars are always sleazy, so.... ya that explains the rest of the title! :giggle:

... I can just imagine the next big thing in fashion being girls washing their hair in gold... or hairspray having gold in it, or a gold leaf hair gel thing... and it will all be very expensive!

Comments pleeeeeease! I'm done with the li'l polite "I would appreciate it very much if you'd tell me what ya think...." bullshit. If I want comments, I'll bloody well say so! So nerrr!

Gimme comments! :giggle:

PS: This is my entry for =Bloodredsangre 's Portraits Contest [link]

:lol: yeah ...... hell , i wanna comment on this :giggle: i love the shiny effect you get...though i ve got no clue as to how.

washing hair in gold... :O_o: well they may do that too :D

Aww thanks hun! :) Shiny effect is gained through vigorous Photoshopping... use the history brush on different settings with different colors, and layers and all that jazz ... either that or wash yer hair in gold!! :giggle:

Hehe... maybe I'd just take a pic of mine, and thumbnail it, and then the contest would be to recreate what is in the pic in that Deviant's own style!

You know the Peppermint Creep Anti-Angel pic I did? The one with the bright pink hair with a li'l blue bit, and then glittery green makeup? Well I drew that whole character on paper.... named as LA Rockin' PPMC Anti-Angel.

That sorta thing I was thinking for the contest... I hooope that makes sense! :giggle:

use your photo and re-create?..wow..hehe..cool idea.

I just saw your Anti-angel series,..yeah..they rock :headbang: not a bad idea for the contest :D

Ya! So basically just pick an Anti-Angel... and create a deviation of the character, using your own style!

And yay thankyou!! :glomp: I'll probably start the contest in a couple weeks....

under your work is a note: critic welcome, so accept that anything what you put here, isn't good at all.

and the reason why i don't like this, is just i can't find nothing special in it, no beauty, no idea. just a hard photoshop and boobies xD. and lot of contrast.

The Critique Welcome thing is for CONSTRUCTIVE criticism... as in: You explain what exactly you don't like about the piece, and how to make it better, and perhaps what you would have done instead!

And have a decent friendly attitude about it too! The way you said your before-comment was really rather rude, and the way it came across was really rather upsetting. No one likes to hear that about their work, so maybe you should learn some manners!

And perhaps you should take a look at the original stock photograph to see what I did to it!

Gee thanks :roll:

The least you could have done would have been to give me some CONSTRUCTIVE criticism, not just an example of harsh snobbery.

And I just looked at your work... and the only word that came to mind is this: Bland.
