those postmodern games just don't let me go:)

well, I combined three images here, plus lots of painting after.
I just couldn't get the right pose on one photo.
color balance, levels, curves, desaturation a bit
find edges: combined the edged variant with my photo
surface blur
lots of editing on the face: shadows under the lips and on the cheeks, eye shadows, volume to the lips, eye makeup
painted roses
painted leaves
painted "sketch" on the body
a lot of painting on hair: light and shadows, color, volume
lots of layers with gradients
color correction
smart sharpen

YOOHOO!! :)
THANK YOU so very much dear all!
you are so wonderful!

I took the title from here:
Étude d'un femme vue en buste, la tête de trois quarts à droite, les bras croisés, Théodore Chassériau.

my title (at least as I think:) means "a study of a bust of a woman, unfinished".

thank you so much for your comments and favorites!!!!!!

Coming late to the comment party on this winner, and I don't have anything to add that hasn't already been said over and over, except this: when it loaded on my screen I was so struck by it that I did not hesitate to click "10". Congratulations.

Actually this is utterly photographic. It is a photographic commentary on drawing, NOT drawing. To call this a drawing is like calling a photograph of a car a parking lot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/28/2007 08:42:50 PM
I did not have time to vote on this challenge but quickly viewed the pictures one night. When I saw this work I thought this one is going to ribbon. Congrats on a very well integrated work of art and photography.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/28/2007 05:03:00 PM
If this doesn't appeal to photography, why did it get 64 10s and a total score of 7.5464?

Seems like most voters did think this is good for DPC. And I totally agree.

I love this Svetlana, but you allready knew that ;)

I think we all have things where we're like "okay, how could this possibly ribbon?" and that just makes sense. Most "digital art" stuff, even in expert, gets penalized, but silverfoxx just did a superb job at impacting us visually, and sometimes that trumps other things (i.e. stunning northern light shots winning over and over again even though people get tired of often-used themes, etc). Unlike what Toyan said, I personally think that the 1s aren't because of not liking her but instead just because of what you said, TooCool - this just does not appeal as "photography" to everyone.

your opinion is as valuable as the next, i like the pic but i do understand where you're coming from

This is another fine example of your work which continues a long line of photography, the tableau vivant. You have recreated paintings and historical settings in much the same way it's been done since the mid 1800's and the early days of photography. You also use your work to explore your inner world and thereby impart meaning to yourself and others. Beautifully done as always.

04/25/2007 05:53:28 PM
I originally worried your photo moved too far into non-photograph territory, so despite its beauty I gave it an 8. Now I'd like to add it to my favorites. Does that make me flexible or sheep-like? Anyway, sincerely glad to see this did so well!

Congrats, Svetlana!! Not only a wonderful image of a lovely young woman, but an excellent piece of artwork. You go, girl! Look at the number of 10s and the average received from the commenters! While we truly do love having you on Team Suck, you most assuredly do NOT suck in the execution of your craft.

*fall over* This is AMAZING. Great use of expert editing to achieve something that is both "photographic in nature" and something that goes beyond what we can see in other rulesets. I love the concept but also, I believe this is executed just perfectly. The soft colors just make this perfect in my opinion. 10 10 10!

I really, really, really like the 'photo' part of this, but I also really dislike the lower 'sketch' part of the image; I would much prefer a nude photograph, and I feel that you would have carried it off in a tasteful manner. I am only going to give a 6, largely because I feel the transition from sketch to photo doesn't work particularly well here. Nonetheless, it was an interesting technique to try out, and may be worth exploring further; I do admire the fact that you have tried something new and bold.

Something like "Étude inachevée du buste d'une femme" or "Étude d'un buste de femme , inachevé" would have sound better , more french in my opinion.
But I prefer to only vote the photos and yours is excellent , my favorite in this challenge.
I like the fact that you have used the possibilities of expert editing.
The result is very tasteful and delicate.

Very beautiful and interesting. Not sure how well the editing will go over with the voters... for me it works fine because the original photograph is great and you just added to it artistically, as opposed to trying to carry a bad photograph with the editing.
:) Nice job.
