This is my beautiful sister :) I made her this for her birthday (it was actually yesterday but this took longer than I thought it would) I did go to the link on the contest description and scrolled down through all the different images for some inspiration!! I ended up using this one ( to create a brush and achieve some great effects! Other than the image of my sister, I used no other outside sources. (5 years and 1499 days ago)

(PSST! DRAW the background items.. I think some of your sources aren't allowed (illustrations and premanipulations).. don't think will it effect the finished image at all .. Great job)

author says:

hey thanks for the heads up, what source in particular are you talking about? I'll certainly fix them, I don't want this to be taken down! I put far to many hours of work into this for it not to compete

author says:

SORRY EVERYONE! I seem to have used some illustrations in my background that I will need to replace. So if my entry disappears for a while don't be sad, it will most certainly be back!!!

avatar Drivenslush

Any thing premanipulated can't be used.. you'll get it, and the Mods should be able to help you as well.. GOOD LUCK!!!

author says:

yeah they took it down once, but I didn't realize they had done it. Thought I just clicked the "publish later" button when I uploaded so i put it back up on accident. So I'm waiting for them to take it back down for me. I'll have time to make new background elements tomorrow

avatar Drivenslush

Don't worry, You'll get the hang of it LOL.. Great work!

Fantasic job, especially on her face! Love the background, too, and I'm sure you'll get that worked out.

author says:

Thanks! everything is all worked out now. Other than a couple textures I created all the background elements right in photoshop, so I no longer have to worry about my sources apparently I need to freshen up on my rules every couple of months!!

avatar Drivenslush

HEHEHEHE!!! NOW It's PERFECT Great Save author!

The textures are still artwork created by others...You can only use "natural" texture images.

author says:

In the mod's message they sent when they took it down they only said to change my other sources, so apparently these ones are ok to use.

author says:

hahaha you were right Mossy! Shortly after I commented back, they took it down, AGAIN! heheh now this image is 100% created in photoshop by me with no use of any sources other than my own picture for a reference, so I think I should be safe now

A wonderful gift for your sister, very well done! Everyone has problems with sources at one time or another but you dealt with the situation with good humor and a positive attitude. I agree with MossyB the end result is most excellent!
