This was an experiment to see how Freehand handled loads of lens and gaussian blur effects. The gradients on the girl (minus the texture and highlights on the dress and strappy bits) were all done in Freehand. If you've used Freehand before, then you'll know that's quite a bundle! Anyway, the real test was the export bit. The results were very agonizing - the first export of an A4 300dpi file of just the girl took probably over an hour. A large 30x40" 150dpi file took a few hours, and that didn't turn out right. In the end I exported the file as a 600dpi A4 file, which surprisingly scaled up pretty well indeed.

The background was added in Photoshop. Initially I wanted her over a bed but that didn't look too good in the end.

I'm not totally happy with it, I think the pose is a bit off, but it's a bit too hard to tweak at this stage so I'm just leaving it as it is. Perhaps when I have time in the future I'll do a part 2 or something.

the contrast between her thigh and waist is rather frightening, especially since they are right next to each other.....

A work that shows a female in such an alluring, but not pornographic way, is always worth looking at.
Yours however catches so much more than the visual aspects. There is a seductive and emotional draw to it, and the eyes seem to hold something more.
I guess I should have said this in a comment of this peice when I :+fav:ed it... But I never think I can quite get my point across, and who am I to critique...

As some other comments said, the woman is very sexy. The composition and textures are also appropriate, but the highlights on her dress look out of place. I think it would look better without them. The one on her brest and on the shoe look just right but it's not the case for thoses on the dress.

Anyhow, :+fav:
