Holding Out For A Hero by NoctisUmbra Holding Out For A Hero by NoctisUmbra
:icondonotuseplz::iconmyartplz:

This took me a little while longer than most of my pictures that I do simply because I was so indecisive about practically everything in it. I changed the hair, the dress, the lamp, the wall, the lighting, everything over and over and over again but thankfully I am done.

A huge Thank You to :iconb-r-a-c-i-a-t-a: for giving me tips on how to do the hair. I can never do as great a job as you but I did put your advice into play and I will never forget it!

And to :iconkalosysart: for tips on the dress.

To:iconunfeigned-dreams: because I told you I would make another picture so here it is ;)

To :iconviolet-pandorah: for making a beautiful stock model

And to :icondasha444: because you've been very kind and helpful and there to lend a hand since I started. I really appreciate everything you've given me to help in my PhotoShop. It means a lot.

And now for the Credits.

okay, I cant see her front/face but, in any way she reminds me of my dear friend Kathy. Her hair is similar, very similar and her arms/hands.... I lost her 2005 :tears: still miss her ...
your work is beautiful!
