Blowing In The Wind by BaB-Jane Blowing In The Wind by BaB-Jane
:star: CALENDAR 2013 AVAILABLE HERE :star:

This is the page for NOVEMBER


The story behind this: a girl, betrayed by her fiancé, is throwing away in the cold November wind love letters and songs he wrote to her. Their story is definitely over, but still... she keeps one letter in her hand, because no matter what happened, they still had beautiful moments. She wants to keep a track of that past because she's a strong girl, the past will not bring her down and she will not regret the life she had with him, despite the anger she feels.
I think I'm still not that good at painting hair, but I like the way it turned out.


L'histoire: une fille, trahit par son fiancé, jette dans le vent froid de Novembre les lettres d'amour et les chansons qu'il lui a écrites. Leur histoire est terminée et pourtant... elle garde une lettre dans sa main, car peu importe ce qui s'est passé, ils ont vécu de beaux moments. Elle veut garder un trace de ce passé car c'est une fille forte, le passé ne la brisera pas et elle ne regrettera pas la vie qu'elle a eu avec lui, malgré la colère qu'elle ressent.
C'est toujours pas le top au niveau des cheveux, mais j'aime bien le rendu final quand même.

Aaahh I feel better, lol, it's because sometimes depending on the computer, the image is way darker than it should be, so then people tell me it's too dark and they can't see a thing (probably because they're computer is old) so that's good if it was not litteral. Also thank you very much, I really appareciate your comment and appreciation. :hug:

I adore the atmosphere and the feeling of movement. Also cold tones emphasise emotions and are a great accent for the story behind this one. Wonderful :heart:

Oh I'm glad you like! I still think I need to improve again, I'm just a beginner with the tablet so I hope I'll be better in the future. :)

Oh you will improve with the tablet for sure, it'll become so much a part of what you do and it's so much easier than a mouse... I'm looking forward to following your work and see all the new things you do :hug:

Well for the hair, I think they are a little bit too straight, it's hard too do wavy lines without trembling with the tablet. :XD:

La main en fait je ne l'ai pas trop retouchée, j'ai essayé de faire en sorte qu'elle tienne un truc dans sa main car à la base le model tient un anneau avec un clé (regarde sur la photo originale).

This is beautiful. I am not sue why, but this scene kinda reminds me of a scene from the movie "Memories of a Geisha." If you haven't seen that movie you probably won't know what I am talking about.. LOL

Excellent, hon. And I really do like the hair. :)

Oui j'adore le décors aussi, je contente d'avoir trouvé ces photo. Par contre j'ai changé le ciel et j'ai rajouter des rochers pour faire genre y'a une falaise.

Ben comme d'hab, un beau mélange.
C'est ça aussi que j'aime bien sur tes manips, tu ne te contentes pas de coller un perso sur un fond, tous les détails sont bien soignés!

Et puis en fait ce serait pas marrant si j'avais qu'un seul élément de décors, y'aurait pas grand chose à faire, lol.

Regarde les credits, j'ai utilisé des feuilles de papier volantes et après je n'ai qu'à appliquer des textures dessus, dont mes notes de musiques et du texte que j'ai écrit. Après j'y aplatit, j'y tourne, je joue avec les perspectives pour que ça s'applique bien avec la forme du papier. :)
