Hi. I was going through some old pictures, and I found this. When I saw it, it captivated me. It looked to me like something that would work well in Santharia. I'm not sure what exactly it would be. Some kind of Goddess of Spring, or a Ghost of a Saint, or something else all together. Anyway, I am by no means an expert, but I scanned it in, and started working with it in Gimp. I'm a little bit afraid it looks to photographic, rather that painting. Anyway, if you have any ideas, or suggestions, or recomendations to stay out of what I don't understand, I would love to hear them.

Sivartius, this is hard to say. It depends what you are doing with this picture. Now it has a boring sky and an inclined horizon which looks just as if you had held your camera wrong (I do that often, but luckily there are tools now to fix that!). But if you get this ghost right, it might work. Probably you would need to do two pictures and make the woman fairly transparent. But I don't know, how good you are with "paintings".

It could be an apparition of some sort, a ghost who haunts travellers, would need an entry then.

It looks like someone's reflection in a car windshield going down the road. I am not sure how it could work... huh

No, I would not want to live in a world without dragons, as I would not want to live in a world without magic, for that is a world without mystery, and that is a world without faith. And that, I fear, for any reasoning, conscious being, would be the cruelest trick of all.

You know Azhira, that's exactly what I thought as well ...

I was actually thinking it might be something simmilar, although I did not know about the "White Ladies". Do any of them appear amoung fields of flowers?

There are rumours of a White Lady being spotted near the Olantani River WIP.

Edit ... oh I give up on subscript/superscript :)

What I was trying to do was (Another Shameless Plug(TM))

This picture might work for that White Lady. The only potential problem I can see is that her location is up in the mountains, and in the picture the mountains are in the distance.

Per Talia's suggestion, I have fixed the skyline. I really like the way she is very transparent. I think she is more hinted than clearly shown.

I've uploaded two pictures. The first one is the adjusted skyline. The second one has the adjusted skyline, but I also did some stuff to make it less "photographic" and more "painted" looking.

Anyway, if anyone has more comments or suggestions, please let me know. I'm not a perfect artist, but I will give it a try, and if it turns out that I can't make it what it should be, I'll either take it off, or hand it off to someone who knows what they are doing.

Erm... This is a photograph shot from a moving bus window, a reflection of a person. And due to the fact that it is very obvious that it is exactly that and also because we have standards to maintain on how pictures should look like on site I guess you can't really get this to work properly. Even with a lot of Photoshopping, really. I guess this needs to be emphasized rather clearly.  huh

Alrighty. No problem. I tried to delete it, but it said you are not allowed to delete your own topics on this board.
