It Can't Rain All The Time by Trisste It Can't Rain All The Time by Trisste
edit1:2 h and 30 min after submitting: I thought that I should add water drops flowing down from her face, elbows, crow's tails. I'll do that tomorrow, now I need to get some sleep :yawn:

edit2: 12 hours after submitting: So I did the water drops, and It's official: I'm masochistic, because who would even noticed that little drips if I wouldn't talk about them (too much) :confused: I also fixed big drops on the front. You can see how it looked like before: [link] And I did my first ever video-screen-cap of how I painted water drops: Yes, I know. Who cares about stupid drops. I could capture how I did the face, but like I said it's my first avi screen capture, yesterday I didn't even had app for this.

:bulletblack: Pretty girl, crows, cemetery.... So cliché right? I'm sorry, but I just couldn't help myself when I saw that stock. Actually vague idea of this manip came to my mind in june 2011 when I've saved this photo on my HD, but it wasn't good time for me, because of personal tragedy I was numb, wasn't able to create.

:bulletblack: I guess it is pretty much obvious where my inspiration came from. But for those who thought of Joker or V.Frances... :facepalm: please, my dear young viewers go watch this movie: [link] NOW!

:bulletblack: My manip was actually finished, it was no rain on it when I started to think about a title. Title is cliché too. It's most memorable quote from "The Crow". That is when I decided to add rain, which made it even more cliché :rofl: But at least I didn't placed big full moon in the back, right? :lmao:

:bulletblack: A little explanation for those who might misunderstand why I did re-painted girls face. No, it's not because I think she is not beautiful enough. I have a huge respect to non-mainstream beauties that Anna undoubtedly is. I re-painted her face because, like I mentioned before - I touched very cliché topic that is easy to repeat, I want my images to be mine, that is why I usually do them highly edited.

:bulletblue: Credits: girl is from: *Demonia-Mort-stock I'm unable to provide direct link to the image because Anna removed that photo.
Cemetery is photo by Amy Halverson from: [link] which was submitted by her under creative commons licence, that is why I could to use it.
Clouds are from: [link]
Crows, face, hair etc. painted.

#Looks so sad and very dark at same time : ) But the model is very beautiful, perfectly fit for this work. Love the bird who had more dark feelings in this work.
