Please Don’t Tell Me to Smile

Have you ever noticed how men ask women to smile?  Not even ask…TELL them to smile.  It’s a pet peeve of mine.  In a way, that’s a form of controlling.  I could go way deeper into this subject but I’d probably get heated and this is more about photography.

Meet Camille.  She is a Coconut custom with a SUPER soft alpaca reroot.  I bought her for myself as a 30th birthday present.  Despite her painted on permanent frown, she really is sweet.  An instant fave.

Photos were taken with an Olympus Digital Camera.  A point and shoot as I do not have the funds for a DSLR.  Maybe someday….

Oh My Darlin’

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
Digital Painting of Clementine

I did this on New Year’s Day, 2016.  I’m trying to get back into art, doing the photoshop work and it’s amazing how much things change with each update!!

Anyhoo, I hope you enjoy this digital painting of Clementine, an Elfdoll Dami.

Mina Plath

I adopted this lovely Minifee ShuShu from a friend a while ago.  She has a Viridian House face up!  I named her Mina Plath.  I wanted to name her Sylvia but I think Mina suits her better.

Photos were taken with an Olympus point and shoot with a pinhole setting.

So it’s a new year and that means new plans.  I’ve been working diligently on my digital art and here is the first of many.  In the archives, the original photo can be found.

I used a wireless Wacom Bamboo tablet to create this.  I hope you all enjoy it!

Make Me Pretty Barbie

Barbie is the ideal woman.  She can do it all.  She is a doctor, a baker, a vet, a mother and super gorgeous to boot.  If I could ask Barbie one thing, I would ask her “How do you do it?” which would be followed by her gasping for air and doubling over from her less-than-realistic body proportions.

Make Me Look Like Skipper
Do You Think I’m Pretty?

These photos were taken indoors with a sheet as the backdrop and a mirror as a prop.   I used a dramatic filter that exaggerates shadows.  The purpose theme is campy but somehow turned creepy.

 

 

 

Secrets

 

Have you ever had a secret that you just wanted to scream out?  You just want to confess to someone-anyone, a random person on the street that wouldn’t have any idea what you are talking about…

Secrets are like shadows.  They engulf the day into night only to have the sun rise again to procure more shadows.  All I want is a flashlight right now.  Something to scope out and peer into the shadow that is keeping me from the light.

I wish you all have a happy day.  If you need me, I’ll be looking for that flashlight.

 

The Haunt

tempestEver feel like there’s something lingering about?  Not necessarily a ghost or a paranormal being…more like an emotion.

Sometimes I have a sense of dread.  A feeling of oppression.  It’s a frightening feeling!  There’s a darkness in my soul and I just want it to go away.

This photo was taken a while ago in color but I decided to edit in in Photoshop to play with the levels and, of course, change it to black and white.

I wish you all the best and have a good weekend.
