A dream that never was by isissousa2 A dream that never was by isissousa2
This is my Halloween painting this year. I thought about something beautiful and obscure. A brave young woman got locked inside her own dream. How can she ever come back to reality?

I think ”IT’S Art Portraiture Classes” are pushing me forward as an artist and I judge this to be my best piece to this date.

Painter 12, Wacom Intuos 3, airbrushes, sponge (to texture the cape)

The leaf motion effect was done manually: I multiplied the leaves layer a couple of times and moved them a little aside the original layer (total of 3); being the first layer in 100% opacity and the other two in very low opacity. I also painted slightly around the leaves with a thick, very transparent airbrush, to help the sense of motion. It is not as good as if I have used a finished blur/motion effect in Photoshop or any other photo editing program, but I decided to do it myself and I quite liked the result!
