Elven Magic by brandrificus Elven Magic by brandrificus

1oo Theme challenge :#62: Magic .....So I've been using alot of pre-made backs lately ...mostly because I wanted to make use of some very talented artists resources ,and somewhat out of lazyness , but I really CAN create my own I swear. (Unless you think this sucks ... then I take it back.)

:music: Music - "Higher" by Creed [link]

When dreaming I'm guided to another world
Time and time again
At sunrise I fight to stay asleep
'Cause I don't want to leave the comfort of this place
'Cause there's a hunger, a longing to escape
From the life I live when I'm awake
So let's go there
Let's make our escape
Come on, let's go there
Let's ask can we stay?

Can you take me Higher?
To a place where blind men see


Done in Photoshop CS5 with Wacom Bamboo Tablet.

Wonderfully composed!
Given the setting, one gets a feeling she's not just a child but older beyond her appearance. Or perhaps this is the power of innocence...
Very nicely done :)

Thank you Kitty ! I Used to do ONLY children. It wasn't untill about June , that I started working with adult models. It seemed more popilar that way. Now that I have some more expierence and friends her though , I thought I'd add another child to the gallery. I'm glad you like it !!
