Stella Notte by timmydoomsqueaks Stella Notte by timmydoomsqueaks
I am people watching at a bus stop near the beach when I see her walk by. Her face is so striking that I feel compelled to sketch her. The image is burned into my mind, and I begin to notice her around town.

A week passes before I have the courage to approach her.

"I'm sorry, uhm, this might seem strange, but you are just so beautiful, I have to know your name," I say, stumbling over my words.

She eyes my sketchbook warily before giving me a smile that makes me weak in the knees.

"Stella," she says.

I think it suits her.


Fiorenza Lancin is (c) me.

Done in Adobe Photoshop CS3 extended on my WACOM Graphire 3. About 2 hours to completion, discounting the pencil sketch. First thing I've done in a while that I can't stop staring at. I miss painting.

hay, you still haven't stopped getting better!! Keep it up au-braaaay - (technical def.) the sound a horse makes.

seriously though, that's stunning. I love the style of it all, but especially them stars in the background.

I like how you randomly appear on the internet from time to time. Haha. I'm glad you like it. I dig it a lot. I was just kind of playing with color over a sketch that I'd done, and it turned into this. I was channeling Van Gogh or something.

What's the easiest way to get a hold of you, kid? ;)

Haha! Wow, I half-considered actually calling the old number, but I wondered if it had changed when your parents moved out. Awesomesauce. I'll give you a call some time, kiddo. ;)

Blahhh. I don't feel like being torn into and critiqued right now.
