Created for the Self Portrait or: My Inner Self challenge at :iconartworldtoday: (Challenge description can be found here.)

UPDATE: I won the 1st prize! Wow!

Though I really do not like to talk about myself, and it might not be evident (of course) but this image tells much more about me than any "regular" self-portrait could - every single element is deeply rooted in my life in this way or another. And let's just leave it at that.

Photoshop CS5.

A low-res tutorial .psd file of this image can be found here.

I owe thanks to :iconcouchycreature: for suggesting the gallery where I found this wonderful female stock. Or not - well, we'll never know now... :rofl:

:iconxstockx: female model
:iconfelixdeon: male model

All the other elements are either mine or purchased/licensed or painted.

 I'll use this as the Cover of my book, Poems of sanity, but respecting all the copyrights by mentioning you in the copyright page of the book claiming that you are the rightful owner of it. The picture is just great.
Here's the link of my books, just in case you don't answer. If you don't want to, I can and will create another cover to my book. www.lulu/spotlight/julioccarlos.com.

Hi,
First, thanks for your nice words about my image - I do appreciate it. I do licence my works for several purposes, among them for book covers as well, so if you wanted to use this particular picture please go through the official way and purchase the commercial licence. I definitely and very strictly do not allow any use of my images without a signed and paid contract. Please let me know if you are interested in the legal way and in a private message (note) send me your email address so that I can provide the further information (contract, price, way of paying, etc.) Again, please do not use my image without the legal licence contract that you sign. If you happen to use it illegally (ripping it off the internet without my consent), I have to take legal steps. Thank you for your understanding.

Thanks. But I was able to get a cover by other means. I did not use your work in the book. I really like and respect the rights of others in the ways that are moral. Thank you for the time. Good luck and best wishes for your work. You are really talented.
