twin peaks - happy laura

Night/Early Morning Art...

 Okay, it's late I don't have the time to go into EVERYTHING on this piece, but I wanted to post it cuz it makes me happy that I finally finished it.

Full Size
Title: Guess
Cast: Buffy and Dean
Words: None
Info: Here is the first BIG THING before you make any judgements.   The original base used for this piece was a Guess ad shot by the talented Ellen von Unwerth.  That being said, for those of you familiar with a lot of her work, ESPECIALLY the Guess ads, you know that she tends to draw every single shadow imaginable from certain areas of the photos.  In this one, it was the models' faces.  Seriously, in the original, they barely looked human.  That's why their faces are so bright and kind of unrealistic looking.  I wanted to stick with the original intent of the base, but I still couldn't bring myself to make them even lighter.  Had I gone for it exactly, they would be REALLY white.  Other than that, enjoy the manip.  It was a fun one and it's late.  I've always been a huge fan of these ads and her photos in particular, so you may be seeing more like this in the future.
