Howdy doody! I was browsing through stock models, and came accross the girl pictured in this one! I was quite a fan so decided to make a wallpaper out of it!

What you can see above, is the final result!

I hope you enjoy it!

Any sort of critisism is most welcome! :)

Thanks :)

I'm very impressed. That's a great piece of artwork. Re using that "Paint Tossing Pack", what is the trick to making the black (or white) background disappear when you used those paint splash images? They look so good, and I'm curious about your technique as to how you applied them minus their backgrounds.

Honestly, I can't recall how I did it in this instance (and I've lost the .psd :().
I'm guessing it was a simple magic want selection and delete, with a color overlay on layer styles.
Or I might've changed the blend mode (to multiply or darken) then added the color overlay in layer styles.

I hope that helps, sorry for the delay :)

Actually found the .psd. The paint is masked (probably from a magic wand selection) and then the color overlay
