“A purely instinctual creature, all desire and joy and rage.”

Jean Grey is probably my favorite of the X-Men, especially her Phoenix storyline (NOT from the movie, despite the above quote). As a result I’ve been kicking around an idea for a Phoenix-inspired picture, and played around with Photoshop a bit to get some nice effects. I wanted her to be in the White Hot Room, so I didn’t go too crazy on the background. Pretty pleased with how this turned out nonetheless!

Note: The flames were a gift to me from the lovely ColeMarie Soleil of Cole’s Corner, who does truly spectacular and beautiful particle effects. She sent them to me at a point when I was struggling for inspiration, so this picture is dedicated to her in appreciation. Thanks, Cole. ♥

cada rosa tiene su espina, como cada noche su final

Not everyone knows this, but I’m actually a Spaniard. My mother is from Spain, and I’m a dual citizen and bilingual. I’ve wanted to do a sort of Spanish-themed image for awhile now, and with the release of this lovely hair from Beusy I felt I could finally get something I wanted. I had to combine it with Kaorinette’s beautiful cheek brands, of course!

Btw, if you haven’t gone already, Beusy is offering both of her hairs at N21 for L$375 each for the full fatpack. It’s an incredible deal, so don’t miss out.
