I downloaded some wonderful new Photoshop brushes this morning, including a set of fractal brushes by Kime-ra. As I was trying them out, I thought to use a black background and color the brushes white and the fiery yellows orange and red. The effect was AMAZING, like painting with light. The face is also a new brush, from a set called Steampunk Bizarre by Hogret. I found these and several other cool sets at http://www.brushesdownload.com/ A few texture bits- a moth from Graphics fairy and a text piece from Bocaccino at T4L, and she was complete. I love it when a piece just comes together.
