Never Let You Go by ShutteredDreams Never Let You Go by ShutteredDreams
:bulletblue: Introduction / Prologue:
I have submitted this photomanipulation a very long time ago, but the DA admins took it down because the BME site, which I have taken the picture of the guy from, has not approved his image usage in this manip. A few days ago I have talked to the guy in the picture on my MSN messenger. He has told me that the admins of BME showed him the file of the manip that I did. He liked the result of it and he gave me his permission to upload it up here.
That was ever so kind of him, and I thank him very much :blackrose:


:bulletblue: The Gorgeous Female Model *Akourah:

The fabulous female gorgeous model of this photomanipulation is our beloved * Akourah, the eternal "Queen of Ice". Her beauty is so enchanting, her grace is so engaging, and I have wanted to manip one of her stock photos for so long, until I have come up with this one, and tried my luck with it. I am pretty pleased with how this manip has turned out, even though it's been hell of a long time since I have done it... it's nice for my gallery.
All rights for the original stock photo of *Akourah belong to her and her only.
You can find her stock account right here: ~TenebranAngelus



:bulletblue: The Gorgeous Male Model - Matthew:
The male model of this manipulation is Matthew, and you can find the original picture he appeared at at BME. He has gave me his permission to use his picture and I am so very thankful.
Thank you, Matt :heart:



:bulletblue: Process:
This manip has taken me several hours in a September day, it has been very fun making it.
I have used no brushes at all.
All work was done with PhotoShop 7.



:bulletblue: Dedication:
I want to dedicate this deviation to who has shown great support at my Digital works as well as with the traditional ones, and who has never ceased to believe in my humbled and limited abilities.
Thank you, my prettyness :heart: :cuddle:

:bulletblue: Comming Up Soon:
The next portrait of Apnea. Stay tuned ;)

I wouldn't have thought this is a manipulation, honestly! And I've never thought that before.

Stunning work

Holy shit! When I first looked at this I was like "where is the manipulation? she just took a single photo of akourah and some guy and then added a title to the bottom of it." I honestly thought that this was one photo, not two merged together. So that must mean that you did a pretty damn good job lol. After I read the description I went back and looked closer to look for evidence that it had been manipulated... and then I could tell after I saw his hand.

This is very well done! You did an excellent job with the blending of the two pictures together where her face overlaps his. Overall it is pretty well blended together... the only problem spot I see is around his hand. There would probably be a little bit of shadow on her arm right his hand meets it. And I can kinda see the "halo effect" on the outside of his wrist where there is the shadow from her armpit. That area and the little bit of smudginess around his wrist are the only two things that gave this manipulation away after I looked closer at it. So if you ever feel like going in and edit it, that is the only place that I would suggest reworking, and it doesn't seem like it would be TOO hard lol. Or if you feel it is fine the way it is (which it is) then just leave it. But overall you definitely did an excellent job with this! :D

Why thank you so very much for the long and thoughtful comment!
I don't think I have ever recieved one like this before, and I appreciate your time and care.
I hardly have time to breathe at the moment with the on going pressure from school and work, but if I ever get to manipulate this piece again or give it a little extra touch, I shall definitely take in mind your constructive remarks :nod:
Thanks once again, I'm flattered that you find interest in my works and hopefully you shall enjoy some of the future ones as well :aww:

No problem. I didn't mean to make it sound like your work was bad due to a minor detail, because really it is an awesome piece! :nod: I just know that when people comment on my work I really appreciate it when they point out both the good and the stuff that has the potential to be good, but is not quite there yet. It helps me to improve. So I try to do the same for other people as well.

And I totally understand about school and work... it sucks bigtime cause it takes up way too much play time! lol

As I draw up my breath,
And silver fills my eyes.
I kiss her still,
For she will never rise.

On my weak body,
Lays her dying hand.
Through those meadows of Heaven,
Where we ran.

Like a thief in the night,
The wind blows so light.
It wars with my tears,
That won't dry for many years.

"Loves golden arrow
At her should have fled,
And not Deaths ebon dart
To strike her dead."


--- For my fallen angel, my dying bride

Your work gives me the same feeling this song does.. It's tragic, yet beautiful. There is dark and there is light. Sometimes words cannot express what you feel inside.

love,

That is soo beautiful!!! I mean it, it does look gorgeous, and the mood in it, so dark and romantic :heart: There's only one thing that looks strange to me, the girl's hair, I can't explain very well because my english is failing me again, but it looks like the girl's standing on her feet instead of lying down. Anyway sure looks great:nod:keep up the good work.
