This work is another reason why I thought of the late Charles Faris when I saw your gallery. This is exactly the sort of image he would have compiled when alive, and probably a similar subject too!

One of his style cues was to make hair stand out with almost hyper-real contrast as seen here. He also had a fondness for increasing saturation in parts of his images, frequently when handling foliage ... almost as if he was trying to recreate some of the backgrounds from HR Pufnstuf. Whenever I see near-iridescent saturation, he springs to mind! :)

Hello!

I'm a student who is working on a project and I was wondering if I may use your image to use as my Facebook page banner? Your image is wonderfully done and I'm really impressed.

Do reply soon.

Thank you.

LOL I do that so much myself! So many talented people on this site; and PridesCrossing's work is so exciting, I keep discovering things I missed and say to myself "HOW did I miss that?!!" Often times I would fav things twice. But. I discovered. If you look at the top of the page of what you wish to fav, in the right hand corner, you will see a fav tab, lit up in green; if it says "in favs" you know you have already faved it. :D Hope this helps. :)

Hi Linda!! :wave: Just in case you don't know who I am, my name is Lee (:iconpridescrossing:)'s other half!! :nod: It's nice to meet you!! :nod:
I really do appreciate your reply and you are correct in terms of me asking myself the same things regarding other peoples' work!! :giggle: :nod: I am familiar with what you are talking about with the "Favorite" tab being lit green indicating an image already being favored!! :nod: However, what happened is something that you weren't aware of to no fault to yourself whatsoever!! :D What happened is that last year, I deactivated my art site which within 30 days if not reactivated, everything including images that were favored in the account are removed along with everything else pertaining to the site!! :D I had this image favored in that former account and lost it through my deactivation!! :D So, this account I had as my "stock" account and decided to keep it and modify it to a different forum to accept all of my work (which is still not completed)!! :( Well, under this account as compared to the last account, I couldn't remember if I gave it a :+fav: between the two accounts and just told her that I would :+fav: it again on my existing account!! :nod: It is a very complex issue, but it was solved and I am truly most thankful to you for replying to this issue ... I appreciate it!! :D
You have been a big help and thanks again!! :thanks:
Take care and :hug:s upon you!! Lee :heart: :D

Well it's great to meet you too, Lee. You are right, I didn't realize at all who you were. (I'm fairly new on this site).

Thanks so much for taking the time out to explain everything to me; especially with having just visited your profile page, realizing you are "terrible with typing". lol With respect to that, a most thoughtful reply from you indeed. :)!!
Again, it's so very nice to meet you! :hug:

Hi dear Linda!! :wave:
That is truly okay about not realizing who I was ... many times, I don't realize who I am either!! :laughing: (I wasn't aware of you being new to the site ... WELCOME)
It was my pleasure for sure and please ... feel free to come to me if you have any problems on here technically or otherwise!! :nod:
"Yes" ... I am terrible with typing!! :( I never had the opportunity to take it in school and I'm paying for it now!! :nod: Why thank you for the kind words Linda ... it means a lot!! :huggle:
Please take care and the honor was truly on this end and I look forward to hearing from you again soon, okay?? :D
Many :iconbackhug:s your way!!
Lee :heart: :D
