Every Time A Bell Rings... by Mirabel Every Time A Bell Rings... by Mirabel
So here it is.
My original idea was a St. Lucia girl but every time I tried to put the wreath with the candles on her it looked funny so she ended up being, Clarisse, Angel:Second class.
From my favorite holiday movie "It's A Wonderful Life".
"Every time a bell rings, an angel gets it's wings"
I don't why I decided to do it in this style but it was much harder then the way I usually do it. :doh:

300 layers, psp9 and @ 6 weeks.

Happy Holidays DA! :santa:
(Next year no more gifts from the heart, I'm just buying you all Iphones.) =P


Edit: This me >>> :faint:
Seriously? Ohemgee! :excited:
Thank you so much ^DCZed for the DD.

It's A Wonderful Life was- and is still a wonderful movie...although here in Jakarta it doesn't get aired on TV during Christmas season. :)

She kinda makes me...well...wanna be more spiritual. And that's a good thing! :thumbsup: On the flipside, she kinda makes me feel guilty for not going to...y'know. :tears:


Uhhh...don't forget to put me on your Must-get-iPhone-for-frikidayz list for your holiday shopping list. :dance:

Oh god.... You've used three hundred layers on THIS? You've got to be kidding.

It's not bad at all, but I really don't know what have you done on all those hundreds layers... You can do this flat effect using only +-30 layers...

Why don't you show us how you would do something as good as this with only 30 layers wise ass

Com'on. Tell me what have in this paiting to need 300 layers?
No background (at least, not a elaborated one), no great shading (actually, it's almost flat), no small detailed parts.... I think the hair was the most complicated part. And even though, it would not take 100 layers.

To the artist: I'm not saying it's bad. Actually, it's nice... I like "flat" painting. I just can't imagine what have you done to need 300 layers and 6 weeks.

well in the original photo her face is forward of her body.
I think that is what causes the distortion at least in the thumbnail.
