This carnation I hold ... by LillemorGull This carnation I hold ... by LillemorGull
I made this line art a while ago for a competition over at, and as I have had this line art lying in my Photoshop folder for a while I decided to make something out of it.

As you might tell I really rushed on the dress. I didn't even try to attend making thos original pattern-things. I'm not that crazy! ;) Well, when everything was done and I only got the dress left I switched from using my mouse and the original pen tool to my tablet and the freehand pen tool. Saves a lot of time, but the result is not as good. ;) (Ok, so I did the rose and the hair with the freehand and tablet as well, but that was a little bit different, as I zoomed a lot :p )

Less than 100 layers/shapes in Photoshop CS2, about three hours.

This is so pretty - all the details really pull the piece together. The hair is gorgeous, I almost want to reach out and touch it. :D The eyes capture your attention, too. <3

It's smooth, flowing and absolutely beautiful! I love her dress and the expression on her face. She looks like she's thinking about someone as she's holding that carnation...or maybe it brings back memories to her.
Love it! :D

I don't understand how you get such a beautiful, clean line, especially in Photoshop. What's your trick? I like your work in general. It's not just clean and sharp, it's well designed and feels personal as well.

Thank you so much!
The clean line is a result from using the pen tool. I don't really have a trick. I just make lines as thin shapes with the pen tool. Don't know how to explain, but I guess it's a method a lot of people use ... :P
