Free as a bird by Hautalken Free as a bird by Hautalken
Stock image: by :iconbirdsistersstock:
Birds from

Made as an example of 'appropriation' for a class in under 2 hours. The stock image had some really nice flow and fit in just right with my bias for 'x' compositions.
I swear though, that seagull looked like some sort of skeptical uncle. I should have just added the kind of eyeglass that Abraham Lincoln used to wear.

Image was also applied here:

Some crit and feedback would be lovely~

Oh so beautiful really! The picture make me the Free feeling like how the title says. But I think if it's really a Free feling, why it's the background colour gray? :C Normally the gray color is the sadness one.
I love how you put the birds behind that girl kid it makes the picture more and more beautiful. And that girls lines(pink and green if I'm not wrong) I like it too <3
Oh, what's that? The girl have some wings on her hands? Really really beautiful, seriously!

Good work, Hautalken. I really like this picture <3
Bye bye!

I like the effects that you've merged together: glowing outlines, poster and the... um... the shading effect ._. my minds gone off on a loop somewhere. I was stumped on the use of colour - pink, green and brown with tinges of blue - but stumped in a good way because you made the colours blend in well =D

Truly deserves more views.

Wow, thanks!

I think I could do much better too~ There's a lot of textures and things I don't like, and I tried to blur and fix them in this updated version, but it still isn't satisfactory~
I'm glad you think that though~ I never noticed any colours myself except for pink and green. I should pay more attention from now on .___.

Whoa, how does this not have more views?! :omg: This is gorgeous and I love the way the girl is all colorful and has colors extending from her as well. :D

Wow! I appreciate that you feel that way!

I personally think this could be more dramatic in terms of lighting. And a dear friend and fellow designer said it wasn't one of my best works even! So your comment is a bit surprising to me~ Thanks for taking the time to look at it and offering me feedback too! I don't get much these days. I hope you'll visit again :D

I'll admit that I have no idea about the technical aspect of such images. :ashamed: So I just thought I'd tell you I liked it. I'm better with literature. :giggle:
