Goodbye Past

Happy new year! :) I hope you all have a great 2018 :D I dedicate this to my watchers and supporters, thank you all for supporting me in 2017, I really appreciate it and hope to support you guys as best as I can in 2018 too :D. I look forward to sharing more photo manipulations with you all, and also experimenting more with different things this year. I have a lot of projects planned for 2018, excited to get started! :happybounce:

About this piece
I wanted to make something that had to do with leaving the past behind for the new year. Basically this is a woman looking at her younger self through a portal to her past that is now closed and does not work anymore. I chose for her younger self to look a bit fearful/sad to show she is leaving that fearful/sad young girl behind. I spent a lot of time on this, probably the longest I've spent on something in a while - the PSD and full file size are gigantic as well, so I will be turning this into a large poster soon :)

Stock/resources credits
A huge thank you to all of the stock providers and those who share their resources for artists to use, you all are incredibly inspiring, and make it so much easier for me to express myself through my work. I appreciate all the hard work you guys do, and how generous you all are.

This background is gentle and beautiful.........the colours muted and soft yet the lines are strong. She seems lost in her world, lost in her reality, lost in her sense of time and place. I love the blue within the mirror. Are all the pieces digital or are some drawings by pen pencil etc ?
This caught my eye and I'm impressed. Mandy

Thank you for your lovely comment Hug Heart ! The majority are photographs and textures combined together, but I touched up a lot (especially the hair) with my digital drawing tablet :).
