For the last two years (2002-2003) I've been making a new image for each solstice, equinox and cross-quarter festival. This picture is for the 2003 (southern hemisphere) spring equinox. The main figure is a Poser model, retouched in Photoshop (I gave her a much more rounded figure in Photoshop too!), and the secondary figures (shadowy in the background) likewise. The flowers were clipped, edited and collaged (you wouldn't believe the number of layers this thing had). The overlay face was a separate Poser render, edited separately and added at the end. The flowers are all Australian natives, and I was aiming for the figure to look at least believably aboriginal (hard to see her facial features at this size anyway), hence 'Primavera Australis'
