IfPalmsCouldHoldSorrow by kReEsTaL IfPalmsCouldHoldSorrow by kReEsTaL
The above picture is Copyright ©2004 Marie Guillaumet aka Kreestal. PLEASE do not use this picture anywhere without my prior written consent.

Every time I begin a new picture, I make a kind of rough copy of it. This time, the final image was not supposed to be that dark... However, it went out this way. "If Palms Could Hold Sorrow" is a beautiful song by Mors Syphilitica, on their album "Primrose". I found that title so painful that I decided to use it, there, though I still cannot see the link between it and the final image. What could I say about it? Nothing, really. It's up to you to decide what you see... and what you don't. Sorry for the watermark and the fucking pattern, but I'm sick being ripped off, again and again. (I'm sure this won't help my picture to be ripped, however. :roll: )

Photoshop + Wacom.

I don't have much time at the moment to add anything to my gallery... I wish I had more. Nevertheless my website will be online soon. With lots of new and unseen projects. :)

Stock by ~princessirulan-stock + ~ KasStock + SXC

Ps: Should I make a print of it?

acidrainseattle Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2004
I just find the texture in this picture amazing!

Excellent work! :)
lmorningstar Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2004
An extremely beautiful piece, and seamlessly blended. The hues are enchanting and they just draw you into the image. I do feel, though, that the text takes a lot away from the piece; it is far too prominent and somehow distracts the viewer from the full beauty of the image.
kReEsTaL Featured By Owner Dec 12, 2004  Professional Interface Designer
Thank you :bow: In fact the text is big in order to fight against rippers.
szilvia Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2004
beautiful!!! i like the strange feelig the perspective gives... and the colors naturally
ixtab Featured By Owner Dec 5, 2004
I feel like I'm always repeating myself when I'm commenting on your works.But what could I do,you make everything excellent.Like this one.I think the title is perfect for this picture.The colour scheme is great as usual.I think you've made a very emotional and strong piece.I love it and it's one of your best works I think:):+fav:
kReEsTaL Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2004  Professional Interface Designer
Oh no, you're far too kind Sinem! :faint: My only pleasure is seeing that you like it. I already feel unsatisfied. :|
ixtab Featured By Owner Dec 26, 2004
Wow,your new avatar:faint:So much cuteness!:)
And you're thanking me in AENEMYA,I can't tell you how it made my day.I thank you as well for everything,for your friendship,for inspiring me in so many ways:heart:
Btw,what's there not to like about this great piece I don't know.I know that you're very passionate about your art,and probably you never think "nice" is good enough,thus feel unsatisfied.But from the eyes of an observer,I can say it satisfies me A LOT:giggle:
Thanks for cheering up my day,darling:kiss:
neversweet Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2004
Beautiful too. The texture all over the picture is very good, I cannot really describe it today (:roll: maybe I should get some sleep?)

Also very lovely is the colour you used. A nice change to the mostly used purple or blue ;)

Good work, as always. And I really hope it doesn't get ripped :(
kReEsTaL Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2004  Professional Interface Designer
Thank you so much Judy! :kiss: I try to change from the whole blue or purple artworks, but I must admit it's a temptation everytime I begin something new. :giggle: I hope it doesn't get ripped, too, but.. I have serious doubts. :(

i really love the dress,and how the folds look so delicate and natural.the background reminds me of some old cathedral.
have you tried invisible watermarks? ~ watermarks
i am not really sure how they work or even if they work.but it's worth a try.

alyn Featured By Owner Nov 26, 2004
excellent work indeed, love the general image setup :) The hue and atmosphere definitely evoke that necessary mystical appeal. Good stuff all round :)

Shame about the ripping situation, I can relate to that. Hope things perk up.
Fragile-Forlorn Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2004
I dont think the watermark takes away from your work, it can still be appreciated and your trouble to place it is there is very much understood.
Such elegance this image holds and desperate misunderstanding, closing her eyes to sink within her dreams...
:heart: Most Lovely
nepasavaler Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2004
tu t'es surpassé. c'est vraiment magnifique. on a l'impression que l'eau pourrait venir de la fille meme, and that she has been in that place (a sort of prison) for while and is turning to stone...+fav.
eccehomo Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2004
Really beautiful & sad.
feralstrangeoid1 Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2004
