I just love these, as you know! The title banner is gorgeous, especially considering how long it took me to find a title and how little time you had to do anything! And I really think it was your lovely portraits that helped me to flesh out Elliniel, Elemir and Morwen as characters!
Thank you SO much, dear!
So glad I was able to help--and it was all fun to do! I find it helps immensely to have a good idea of how your character looks...and so I always try to find pictures of actors or models to represent my major characters and sometimes the minor ones too, as I work on a longer story. Manipping them is half the fun of it!
And I really like your title! And the characters matched the portraits really well, I thought. Nice work!

Fascinating - and very beautiful, too - they certainly make me want, eevn more, to read the story.
Thanks curiouswombat, I'm so glad they make you want to read the story! I had a good time making them!

I really like your photo-manipulations. ;) My favorite is the title-banner. And I'd never guess that Brooke Shields was the model for Elliniel.
Thanks Ellyn! Yeah, I happened to come across that photo when I was searching "young actresses" and thought she looked like she could be Liv Tyler's daughter (and Dreamflower thought the same!) Wanted to use a current actress but couldn't seem to find one who looked just right. All I had to do was darken her hair and give her a little more of it, and tone down those eyebrows to give her a more delicate beauty, and paint on clothing that was more suited to the times. As I had to do with all the others. Thanks once more for commenting!
