Light as a Feather by kuschelirmel Light as a Feather by kuschelirmel
I've had this on my hard drive for what seems like an eternity - opening and closing it frequently, it never seemed to be right. Up until today that is :aww:

The girl is from *faestock - one of the most beautiful model stock accounts out there. :love:
Not only I know this though, so this is one of those "has been used a million times" images. But I guess that was the challenge here: I loved it the moment I saw it in my watch and this time I refused to pass up on something just because it had been used so often before... so I had to try and do something different with it - I hope I succeeded :D

Btw, the background texture can be found on my stock account *kuschelirmel-stock - I'm not sharing the feather brushes, but some of the shots used to create them are over there, too. :heart:

Sooo light and lovely. Hit the nail on the head. Don't care if that's a trite expression, it fits perfectly.

Hello, sorry to bother you. I would like to use this picture for a cover-plan. If the publisher likes the design, one of their books will appear with the specific cover. Naturally if you agree with it. Thank you. :*

My art is not available for free. If you (or your publisher) are prepared to pay a license fee (the height of wich depends on how/where it's going to be published) then you can contact me via note or email (kuschelirmel at gmail dot com) to discuss details.

Absolutely. My part in this would only be to make a sketch of the cover and show it to the publisher. If they decide to use it, they will pay a licence fee of course. I would only like to nominate the picture, I'm not the publisher's designer. So I would like to ask for your permission to do the sketch.

It's beautiful, I love the feathers idea. It reminds me a bit of a dandelion clock, white and light when they blow away :aww: Wonderful textures as well.

A superb piece...she really does look featherlight. There's just enough white, and just enough shading to make her look delicate. Definitely a :+fav:
