Drowned in Tears

She is overwhelmed by depression and now drowns in a sea of her own tears.

Notes: This one was sort of inspired by a scene from Alice's Adventures which I only half remember. I seem to recall that after arriving in Wonderland, she cries a sea of tears and floats away... or something like that. It's been a long time since I've read that book. I need to read it again. Anyway, I was crying the other day and idly wondered if one could drown in their own tears. This artwork is what came of those thoughts.

Technical Notes: The concept may be relatively simple but figuring out the logistics of it and getting elements to work the way I envisioned... that was hard. First I had to figure out which hair model I wanted to use and then I had to work out the materials which I couldn't decide on. The water I figured out fairly quickly, just a matter of reflection and refraction settings though I fiddled with them for a while along with various bump settings. The hardest part was setting up the lighting because I wasn't exactly sure how I wanted it to be lit. This is something I usually have an idea about ahead of time but was, heh, "in the dark" this time. The depth of field effect was done in Photoshop and I also adjusted/enhanced the colors and gave it a sort of "old photo" feel.
