Love the theme, let's see if I can get my creative pants on somewhere in the next 10 days :)

Thanks for the entry Jesus!

The Fire of Sparta

Sometimes it comes wish and inspiration to grab something from older photoshoots from my actually endless archive....
This time we are going to a Fire splinter and this beauty Spartan female warrior

Initial studio portrait using painted backdrop and all accessories from my own collection. Oh yes, the cost quite a fortune, but still affordable: helmet, sword and the shield. Outfit from our good friends from Gothic clother on-line shop

So we got nice pose, good emotion and proper studio light. Usual post-production routine starting from basic tweaking in LR with further processing in PS adding additional textures and blending in layers. And with final tweaking of colors and some dodge and burning

So meet her. The Queen warrior of the Sparta! Sparta can't be defeated for sure


Enjoy the beauty!

Thanks for the entry axeman!

Hello lady JK of Ponsford
I have started an entry, am about half way through, I even remembered to take progress shots.
I am an inconsistent steemer, but I do rely on a few long time contributors to support my continued existence on the chain. I hope to never pop back and find the explosion has blasted it's last.
Thank you for keeping it rolling. Xxxxxx

Awesome, glad to see you still around :D We have our own creative front end now and I'm hoping this draws the creative steemians who have left back in! Can't wait to see your [email protected]!
