Lace 3

By cattyal  
I'm undecided about this one - I think the texture file needs some work to even out the blotches that appear over my skin but I'm going to upload anyway.

I plan to do more along this line but that probably won't be for a week or two until I have a bit of time and the new lace gloves and stretch lace fabric that I've ordered. Perhaps by then I'll have sorted the textures out too!

I'd love a proper background fabric to match this texture layer - maybe that'll be something for me to ponder and experiment with in the meantime.

Lovely shot again, I most prefer #2 but this stands on its own just fine. Your use of backgrounds is excellent too and I'm trying to copy a few ideas.

Really like the composition and feel of this image. It is just those dark colour patches on the arm and chest that detract. Lovely visualisation though and an interesting portrait.

Yes it's a pity about the skin tones in this one.
I do like these gloves so it'll be interesting to see your new props.

Thanks folks - indeed I should have left uploading this until the evening when I could have sorted out the texture layer. It looks like I've fallen down the stairs Smile

Never mind - I'll get the texture sorted another evening and see what I can manage next time.

I do wish these gloves were longer - it seems most sellers definition of 'long' is elbow length whereas I'd rather have almost armpit length Smile The other gloves are very similar to the fabric in this pic so it'll be interesting to see what they look like.

Thanks again everyone and thank you for your award Ron Smile

There may be one more from this batch worth a closer look but that will have to wait until another evening......
