The Messengers by Senelfy The Messengers by Senelfy
In the midst of the dark forest, there was a small enlightened place. There, she sat herself down at mid-day, every day. Her green eyes, as green as the leaves of her favorite tree, sparkled in the light of the sun. She stared upwards.
There they were. First, as three little dots falling from the sky. But soon after, they came closer and she could see their real shapes. The first one landed on her left, the second preferred her right side. But one remained in mid-air.
The lass reached out slowly. She knew who they were; she’d met them before. Every day, they’d come to deliver her a message. Not through a note, for they didn’t need paper to spread their news. As whispers, carried by the wind, the words reached her ears.
“Never forget who you are. You are special.”
She closed her eyes and a faint smile appeared on her lips, for she knew it was the truth.



Isn’t it great to have those, who remind us of how special we are? This is a little bit a message for myself; Perhaps I should read it more often.

This is dedicated to :iconxannijn: & :iconnellie-x:, who both had their birthdays in December. I wanted to finish this sooner, but things kept coming up.. So I’m sorry for the delay! Hope you guys like it! :) :heart:

Also for :iconwormnine: & :iconawoken-myth:. Thank you, for everything :heart:

And for Caru, who's always there for me :heart: Thank you!

Not sure if the light’s completely right this way, but I’m going to stick by it for now. Suggestions are always welcome :)

Really beautiful, but I think the model needs a little more blending in to the background. Maybe making the shadows on her a bit darker would make her look better, since the shadows of the background are really dark, while the shadows on her seem to be really light and in the midtone range. Still, wonderful job.

the idea and the perfomance is excellent.
some 2 minor details could be improved:
1) the girl's image quality is low compared to the background so you can reduce the image resolution.
2) in the original forest image there is a blurring missings espcially near the left tree.
I hope I helped.

Thank you very much for your comment! Your tips are very useful :) I'm not sure if I can change much about the background, because it's one picture, but I can try. And changing the resolution of the background never occured to me!
Thanks a lot for the help! :highfive:

It's well done though the light is not quite right
But I have to say that you got a really great background stock :D

The background is amazing and I felt so furtunate to have found it! :)
Light is always a bit of a problem for me.. No matter how hard I practice, it's still an issue. I guess I'm going to have to find more tutorials or something on that! ^^
