Salutation Series: Shoujome by sweetgreychaos Salutation Series: Shoujome by sweetgreychaos
Shoujome: (n) *[kook-ing sprey] Common name of a female waif, see: irreverent, retro living mannequin, amateur voyeur-encourager, articulate fangirl, also: born in wrong decade.

***

Since returning from China ('twar AWESOME, by the by...) I've been sucked in by the vacuum that is work. Yes, friends and fidgets, it's taken me this long to free myself from the various hose attachments and crawl back into normal life.

This is the first image in a new Salutation Series, an idea I've had for a long time but needed a kick start on. See, I am an incredibly lucky DA'er in that I have a number of amazing watchers, supporters, and even friendly folks that I watch and admire. My first victim is Shoujome: [link] :iconshoujome:

I don't remember who stumbled on whose page first, Shou or myself... but I know that her bizarre and wonderful mind makes me cackle with glee, and her makeup work is infused with her own blend of CATS-enthusiasm and crazy ephemera. Le grandness. Anywho- I have modified (but certainly NOT improved upon) a wonderful deviation of hers that I have linked above. I have also edited the lighting to look a little more like her style- at least, certainly harking back to one of those decades of old that she so obviously belongs to, and somehow got lost here in ours.

:blowkiss:

:bulletpurple: Medium: Wolfe Brothers... and a little blue sugar.

You ... need to stop being so Gorgeous.

Well, not really, but it does make me upset to then remember that I'm not gonna be in Florida when you're there.

I really like what you did with this one. It's interesting, because, in the picture you based it off of, the Gold seems to've made her eyes have almost a greenish-gold color. And, with yours, the different shades of Blue are wonderfully perfect for your eyes -- you always do an awesome job of making yours eyes stand out; giving them the attention they deserve.

And ... oh God ... that expression.... It's wonderful. At first glance, it seems like an upset, or even devastated expression. Like, maybe you just watched a friend lose at some contest that he really wanted to win; like you were sharing in his pain.

But, as I look at it more, there's actually this REALLY subtle hint of happiness in there. It seems more like the expression one would have right as they saw some incredibly kind gesture someone made for them. It seems like that look you'd have right before tears of joy come rolling down your cheeks.

I just can't help but be crazily pleased with that expression. I absolutely love this one. You really did an amazing job on it, not only as an individual piece, but it is also a wonderfully perfect tribute to the original Artist.
