I painted this entirely in Photoshop 7 as a gift for Charlotte is of course, © Sharde, aka Renee Heitman

Make sure you check out her gallery and leave nice comments.

I've had trouble with inspiration lately, but looking at Sharde's work has made me want to actually try and paint. So... this is the result. Hope you like. ^_^

Oh, and yeah, the title is from that POD song... couldn't get it out of my head while I was working on this.

Her detail in her hair is amazing, and I adore the little sparkles everywhere. It definitely has a beautifully soft, dreamlike quality to it. What a lucky girl she is to have this made for her!!

Her hair is beautiful...as is the sky! ^-^ I think you did a lovely job on this!

:-) Shannon 'emme' Chavez replies: "Aw! thank you so much for the comment. The hair took forever, as did the sky. But obviously worth it from your comments!"

:-) Shannon 'emme' Chavez replies: "Lol... I agree, gotta love blue hair! ^^ Thanks so much for the comment! This is one of those rare pieces that actually turned out right. "

It's really wonderful, you've done a spectaculer job, it should be a mod's choice!

:-) Shannon 'emme' Chavez replies: "Thank you so much! As much as I'd love to get mod's choice, I doubt it's gonna happen. ^__^"

this is so absolutely-amazingly-B-E-A-UUUtiful that i am totally surprised it doesn't have a mod's!

i studied the pic while listening to POD's Sleeping Awake, and i must admit it makes more since : ]
pictures that are drawn with inspiration from music are SOOOO much more powerful than anything else, or so i think
