The girl - Masquerade Eve, Jillian Hair, Victorian Innocence Gloves, Streets of Morbourne (vamp3d.com)
This image sort of evolved. The girl portrait was a throwaway image I had created some time ago. I really had no idea what to do with it, or if I'd ever post it.
So my friend,
sent me this amazing frames/papers/nameplates/etc. pack and I figured I would do a framed portrait. It seemed like the perfect thing to finish it. And then I started playing with these old scratch brushes, 'ruining' the picture somewhat. Then the image involved into another rendered piece with the hands, etc.
And THEN, I played around with VirtualPhotographer (amazing plugin for Photoshop) also pointed out to me by Eve, and the whole.. film noir thing came to be.
