shiny happy people

I hope you like.  (I'm starting to hate the coloring and ... the whole thing.)  I made this before the Cullen cast was announced, but it wouldn't really matter, I'm sticking to my dream cast for my art.  I don't know why that ruffles feathers, but for some people it does.

Also, I made this as a gift, so please don't use it unless you contact me about it.  Thanks.

haha, your dream cast so far seems a lot better than the real one.
It's beautifully done though.
i could never pull something like that off.
and I love the coloring. =]

I agree! Then again, since I dreamed it up I'm a little biased. Thank you! Everyone's got their different strengths, but you never know until you try, bb. I didn't even start trying to make manips until 3 months ago and you improve with every attempt.

I don't see why it annoys the hell out of people about using the actors you prefer when it's your own work either. I completely understand what your saying. It's not like the official cast has to be everyones vision of the characters. The books were around way before a movie was even suggested so, in some ways, it makes more sense to use the favoured originals.

It's lovely btw=]
I adore Emmett/Rose [especially Tom and Olivia as them], they're the best.
thank you gravity: twilight: bw loversprettytwilight on February 21st, 2008 06:15 am (UTC)
I agree with you so much. I hate how since there is an official movie cast that we should just start going with it. I've always seen Emily and Gaspard since two years ago?

Oh, that's beautiful!

I, for one, am going to watch the movie out of sheer curiosity, nothing more and nothing less. I have my own cast in mind and I will continue to imagine them as I read the books, no matter how many people I offend with it. I think it's everyone's right to choose for themselves wether they use the 'official' cast in their imagination/art or not.

After all, Twilight the movie does not equal Twilight the books.

Couldn't have said it better myself.
Would babble on about what I think, but you could always just read the comment I've posted above;)

I love it, oh olivia WHY ARE YOU NOT ROSALIE?
they'll always be what I picture in my mind (:

I know! They totally ruined one of my favorite characters. I thought Pattz was as bad as it was going to get ... but I can even deal with him now compared to Nikki. :(

I like the coloring, very bright and clean. :) The whole thing is really great!

I'd especially like to congratulate you on your awesome "cutting hair out of background" skills. I HATE extracting people because their hair is so irritating.

How did you do it?
Elisabeth: actors: olivia: soft glow.kissingdaylight on February 22nd, 2008 02:03 am (UTC)
Thank you!!

lol. The answer is very, very carefully. No, not really. First of all in this manip the background image of Tom isn't cut out at all - that's him against the sky, I just used the clone stamp to expand the sky so I could fit Olivia in the picture. As for actually cutting out hair, I just ignore the big fly away hairs. The original of the picture I used of Olivia is here. Her hair was all over the place! If you look at the manip and the picture together, you can see I trimmed down her hair into something more manageable. You're never going to be able to get every stray hair and have the manip look right, so I don't try. Plus, with Twilight it helps that they're inhumanly beautiful so I can make a case that Rosalie's hair would never look that out of control. ;)

So very pretty :)

I don't understand why people get really mad over people's dream cast. Everyone has a different opinion on who should be the characters in their heads.
Elisabeth: ot. just stfu.kissingdaylight on February 22nd, 2008 01:35 am (UTC)
Thank you!

And I know, it's so idiotic. I had no idea people were so prejudicial until tw_secret and people started writing in about that. (Ugh, and don't get me started on how much I hate that community.)

This is gorgeous *_*

I love them both as Emmett and Rosalie! And I'm glad you're sticking to your dream cast. Just because there's a movie, doesn't mean its imperative for the actors chosen to be your idea of what the characters look like. We should all be able to stick to our dream casts without other people getting heir panties in twists.

Now if only I had your skills, I'd be making myself some Henry Cavill x Emily Browning art :p
Elisabeth: ot. just stfu.kissingdaylight on February 22nd, 2008 01:39 am (UTC)
Thank you!

Precisely. Everyone should do what makes them happy. Why should I be forced to make manips of the movie cast when these things take hours and it would just make me miserable to sit there and work with pictures of Robert and Nikki. It's my art, if you don't like it just turn the other way.

And btw, as a Gaspard Ulliel/Ellen Page fan, I feel your pain with the lack of art of my true dream cast, even though I've warmed up to Emily.

I would definatly prefer this cast above all others. This is a great manip, lovely! I loved this and would like to see them in the movie, but they are aswell in my dreams.
Elisabeth: actors. clemence: dance.kissingdaylight on February 22nd, 2008 01:42 am (UTC)
Thank you so much! Personally, I miss the time before the casting was announced, when we could actually use our imaginations.

Thank you! It really doesn't matter what the manip is like, with actors this pretty, you really can't go wrong! :)

This is gorgeous. It might even be my favorite thing ever. I think I like it so much because it looks so natural and they're both vampire-y. :)
Any chance that you'll do Jasper/Alice and Edward/Bella? ;-)
Elisabeth: twlt. blush.kissingdaylight on February 22nd, 2008 01:47 am (UTC)
Aww, you kind of made my day!

I'm usually an only Edward/Rosalie kind of girl. (I had to make Emmett/Rosalie for a gift for twilight_santa, and at times it was hard to not sneak Edward in there instead.) I need to branch out though, so I'll definitely think about it!

Thank you so much! I actually made it as part of a twilight_santa gift, so I actually didn't get to choose the cast, but Tom really is my Emmett anyway, so it worked out well. :)

Aww! They look so happy!
Well-done and so cute! :)

Thank you! Usually my manips are so serious that I loved making one where the couple looked so blissful. :)
