Shadowness - MrsHDixon http://shadowness.com I am fun boisterous and loud at times,but when I have a a lot on my plate I tend to be silent and just peek around and do my own... en Dear John Gold Version http://shadowness.com/MrsHDixon/dear-john-gold-version-2 <a href="http://shadowness.com/MrsHDixon/dear-john-gold-version-2"><img src="http://shadowness.com/file/item9/321150/image_t6.jpg" /></a><br />Something I came up with when (even though I tell people online I am married and not looking for anything other then friendship)I was tired of always telling people no ty when asked to be an online girlfriend. So I put on my Avatar and dressed her up and made her look shiny and sassy and got creative with a Background design and put it all together and plopped it up on a few of my sites...right on the front pages. Sassy and bold this LUSH Avatar is. She tells it like it is and now people know where I stand when it comes to being asked to date online. ;) Wed, 20 Mar 2013 11:35:03 -0400 DJDONRYANFire http://shadowness.com/MrsHDixon/djdonryanfire-2 <a href="http://shadowness.com/MrsHDixon/djdonryanfire-2"><img src="http://shadowness.com/file/item9/319977/image_t6.jpg" /></a><br />The Text I used was from Dafont.com called TRANSFORMERS and I took pieces from a picture of fire I had ( OR you can download the one they give in the tutorial) and adding on top of the text with a clipping mask on each individual piece that I used from the fire. I created this as the front page for DJ DONRYAN website that I have almost finished for him.

Lileya on deviantart had some gorgeous Castle Brushes and I decided to play around with them. I took pieces of different castle brushes and twisted and skewed and transformed little pieces from each then slowly but surely The Eerie Mansion took life on it's own. Then I added clouds and the front stonewall and gate and the lamps and eventually after almost a year the whole picture took shape. Thanks to some amazing deviantart members with their amazing brushes I was able to create an eerie but beautiful picture. Thanks Redheadstock Lileya frostbo and especially Chain all on deviantart.com.......who's footprints brush I used with the vivid light mode to create the lights in the mansions windows! Yes ,....I said footprints for window lights...LOL go figure....with Digital Art...just about anything is possible. ;) I must not forget my sweet friend Hawksmont I can't thank you enough for your *not planned* Glow Extra Brushes!!! The two lights on the Gate in front of the mansion are the Glow Extra Brushes. Everyone should have these brushes....they are fabulous!! http://browse.deviantart.com/art/Glow-Brushes-Extra-151755986 Wed, 20 Mar 2013 11:49:00 -0400 Steampunk Family Tree http://shadowness.com/MrsHDixon/steampunk-family-tree-2 <a href="http://shadowness.com/MrsHDixon/steampunk-family-tree-2"><img src="http://shadowness.com/file/item9/321259/image_t6.jpg" /></a><br />Gears and more gears...they have to of come from somewhere...and in my imagination,wouldn't this be a cute way for them to originate from ;) Thu, 21 Mar 2013 02:50:56 -0400 BloodandChoco http://shadowness.com/MrsHDixon/bloodandchoco-2 <a href="http://shadowness.com/MrsHDixon/bloodandchoco-2"><img src="http://shadowness.com/file/item9/321146/image_t6.jpg" /></a><br />A twisted look at a Valentine Contest entry that I got first place for in IMVU. A macabre look at what happens when you bite into a hersey bar.

I was stumped then out of the blue I thought of Adam and Eve and of course the Snake and the Apple. I played around with textures and colors and lots of layers and The Apple came together and then the snake did to. I added some leaves and beveled it around a mother of pearl look effect. I am proud of this one. ;) It's a little bright but still cool enough to place up here I hope.

They are both headed to New York to live next year so I decided to add to one of their pictures. I really like how this turned out. Sometimes I do surprise myself.

My great niece was born today and between developing websites and running back and forth to the hospital...and getting baby's room and keeping my house meticulously clean...this has got to be what was rolling around in my overwhelmed mind the last couple of weeks. Thanks to hannarb for her wonderful gear brushes http://browse.deviantart.com/art/Steampunk-Photoshop-Brushes-127727724 and to Colby17 for the musical notes brushes. http://browse.deviantart.com/art/Musical-Notes-Brushes-PS-87430818 Fri, 29 Mar 2013 02:12:04 -0400 The Diamond Pond http://shadowness.com/MrsHDixon/the-diamond-pond <a href="http://shadowness.com/MrsHDixon/the-diamond-pond"><img src="http://shadowness.com/file/item9/321633/image_t6.jpg" /></a><br />I started out with a grunge texture from mourningstock on deviantart and I just happened to play with so many effects and then I used a Vector Mask along the way and this mystical pond showed up. So I added an Avatar of mine and voila The Diamond Pond.

Most of this is just using different types of blending options. The background was extremely easy to do. Thanks to medialoot for the grunge brushes that you can download with the tutorial.
