CandyCane

By nokecha
For a long time I have been wanting to participate to Livejournal's EGL commynity's Banner art contest.

Last Monday I realized that entries for the egl-community's December banner art contest should be delivered by Friday 25th November. So I had four days before the deadline! I decided to rush and create something Christmas related as fast as possible.

I designed a one piece dress decorated with candy cane print. I think the candy cane stockings are kind of fun add to the outfit! I used Photoshop CS5 and for the lace decoration in the background I used brushes by fiftyfivepixels [link] Thank you!

The poll for the December banner is on right now and it last until November 28th, but you have to be a member in egl to vote [link]

Edit: I won! Thank you all who voted for my entry! This picture will be featured at the banner of the egl community during December 2011: [link]

Thank you! I tried to make the shading as fast & as well as possible ;)
variolite's avatar
I need to learn how to do that. How long did it take you to shade it?
nokecha's avatar
There are many great shading tutorials in DA. For this one I think it took maybe 5-8 h? I'm not sure ^^;

Yea, been reading up on tutorials myself, but I always like hearing tips from others. And 5-8 hours sounds reasonable.
