I've lost my way! Seriously… I tried too hard with this one and now I feel it's worse than it was to begin with. But I'm not used to digital painting… hopefully if I keep trying different pictures and techniques, I will start to find my way again. Suggestions for improvement welcome.

Creds: Photoshop CS5 -- I made my own brushes, moon, clouds and flowers. Some of the elements in the big 'bushy' brushes were created using Context Free Art.

PS I will also post this on my dA page (Shimmertree).

That said..


If I may.. any additional post processing after the fact?

Thinking.. even a Curves adjustment layer might work towards deepening the contrasts. And in turn, produce a lil' more depth.
