Aegea by CrystallineEssence Aegea by CrystallineEssence
A second entry for :hiddenyume-stock:'s "Awaken the Goddess" contest. *fingers crossed*

Meet Aegea, a lesser known Greek Goddess of, and daughter of, the Sun. When the the Titans attacked the gods of Olympus, Gaia placed her in a cave to hide her shining beauty.

I thought her gold robes would do well to represent her relationship to the Sun, and the ball of light in her hand along with the light shining down from the painting behind her also signifies that. I personally like her hair, I think it came out rather well. ^_^

Wow! Visually stunning but not too bright on the eyes, not to mention the balanced contrast between dark and light.

I really like how you altered the fabric from this stock and made it more translucent at the arm, that looks really cool! I liked your other entry a lot but I like this one even better. I just think it's more "Goddessy." :D

Thank you! :D Yeah, I wasn't all that happy with the last one either, I felt like something was missing. I was hoping to make this one a bit more magical - I'm glad I was somewhat successful. ^_^

Man this is lovely hon! It's funny- with the bangs I don't even look like me.. but I really like the hair! lol

I'm also blown away by all the soft glow and symbols you've added in.. they're subtle and I like that!

Good luck hon!

Hehe I like taking stock pictures and then making the models unrecognizable, I feel like that's the major challenge of photomanips. ^_^ I'm really glad you like it, "subtle" is what I've been trying to achieve lately. :)

The lighting in this is just beautiful! The background really comes alive with the warm light on the painting, and the pillars and carvings reflecting that light give it a very 3-D appearance. Of course the model is lovely too, as well as the effects with the magic and smoke. Wonderful work!

Thank you so much dear! The background is actually a 3D model... I had no idea until I started using it, then on closer inspection I saw that it wasn't a real photo. You can imagine my surprise! :D
