My Heart's a Stereo by SelectYourself My Heart's a Stereo by SelectYourself
Danger is always closer than you think.
--------
My heart's a stereo
It beats for you, so listen close
Hear my thoughts in every note
Make me your radio
And turn me up when you feel low
This melody was meant for you
Just sing along to my stereo


If I could only find a note to make you understand
I'd sing it softly in your ear and grab you by the hand
Just keep it stuck inside your head, like your favorite tune
And know my heart's a stereo that only plays for you

hi there, you can say by looking at my entry that I don't know that much how to use photoshop so if by any chance do you mind teaching me through a video tutorial. I was very amazed when I saw your entry and from that moment all effort of 8-10 hours I put on my drawing from the very scratch, I know for sure I didn't have a chance to win.
And it happened. I was not included in the semi. This is not the first time I entered in the contest, but every time the result came to be exact same. so if you have please give me the tutorial.

Hi,
Thank you SO much for the compliments!!! Absolutely I'd love to create a photoshop tutorial for you! My mom suggested to me that I should do something like that. I am self taught in photoshop so I don't really use very technical terms. As soon as I create a tutorial I'll send you a link!:D Will that work...?

...Also people keep telling congrats on my picture but I haven't heard anything about the semi-finals. Have you heard anything?..:)

Oh yeah, danger is definitely one of those objects in the mirror that are always closer than they appear as the little warning in the side view reminds us whenever we climb into the car. Of course, when we could really employ such a warning, when we see ourselves in the mirror -- those monsters looming luridly behind us, manifested in stereoscopic surround sound playing from the ominous orchestra from within the dark recesses of our own essence, clasping us in their abhorrent grasp ..... we find all too late that there is never any sort of sign to say keep your hand away form the hot stove, most especially when we have pushed the on button lighting it ourself.

Turned out really awesome. I'm guessing she's listening to some real heavy metal.

Thank you VERY much!!! Yes I'd definitely say heavy metal. I even made up some albums names like: Banshee Breakdown, Demonic Dance-floor, and last but not least Drop Dead Demon.:

I looked at your entry and OMG! Yours is FANTASTIC!!! The detail and colors are great! How did you make the water look so real...?:)

Thanks a lot. I just did a lot of observation on water drops, how they lay and the color changes. Water can be tough, but it was a fun challenge. I played with the opacity too.

Very nice! I love the contrast of tight rendering vs. loose brushwork. Really drives home your focal areas well, and the colors are very pleasant.

A couple of minor crits/opinions: The girl's left eye (as we look at it) is off. Flip your image and you'll see what I mean. It should be moved in toward the bridge of the nose slightly. Given the tightness of the rendering on the faces, you might want to take another pass at Batboy's hands. To be in such proximity to the main area of interest, they're a little loose. They probably need to be at least as detailed as the girl's face. Batboy is a little wall-eyed as well, but that could be intentional. You might consider moving the pupil of that left eye a bit to the right, so it looks more like he's actually looking down at the girl.

Hope that helps, and good luck on the contest! See you at the finish line, with any luck :)
