And if you find your Illium, And if you build your Troy,
I hope you feel the pain I felt, Twice upon your sword,
Aeneas on your noble hands, My life shall stain with blood,
Let Dido's curse rest in the mind, A shade begot by love,
Carthage shall this grudge recall, Upon your seven hills,
And nothing less than misery, Will remind you who you killed,
And though with hate I suffer now, The truth is deeper still,
For I love you with my dying breath, And I know I always will,
Beyond this world into the next, I know I always will...

Created on the same principle as Ariadne [link] about 18 hours work and 27 layers. Architecture is hard!

A lot of layers and a Wacom graphics tablet :D Gives the same effect as a pen/brush.

Just realised this is in the wrong category as its not really a photomanipulation... Whoops

Awesome as always! Out of curiosity, could you post the link to the stock pic you used? I'm always a bit curious as to how you pull this stuff off... :p

Thank you!!

Sure, the stock pack is here - [link] however the particular image I used isn't shown in the preview, you'll have to download the pack (button on the right) first. Its file 06. The one I used for Ariadne is here - [link]

That is just gorgeous!!! I love the delicate fine linework in this. It's so reminiscent of early 20th century fairy tale art (Rackham, Neilsen, etc.) Beautiful coloring as well.

I won't even try to give advanced critique because I'm not even a novice myself in this, but it's absolutely gorgeous!
