How to Use Your Digital Fantasy Portrait
(Get your fantasy portrait. )
If you’re my age, you may be a bit 20th century. Let’s get 21st with a digital portrait:
* Put it in your blog.
* Make it part of your blog banner.
* Save trees! And stamps! Create a digital Yule card, with your fantasy portrait as its pic. E-mail it to your friends.
* Instead of a card, post a Yule message on your blog during the holidays, use the portrait as its decoration, e-mail your friends the URL. (Get your fantasy portrait. )
* Some people used the fantasy portrait I made them as their Facebook profile picture. Can’t guarantee that the Facebook cropped measurements allow a good representation of your portrait, but it might!
* Ditto social media icon.
* Use it as a screensaver, always be reminded of how magical you are.
* Integrate the portrait into your Facebook banner.
Post ideas below. I would love to hear them.
More ways to use fantasy portraits:
* Is your pet otherworldly, maybe even your familiar? I can capture the spirit of that.
* Show mom how magical she is to you, with her fantasy portrait for Mothers Day or Yule.
* Children want to look fanciful – e.g., Faeries, animals, pirates. I’d love to paint your child, for a birthday present your child will treasure and pass down to your grandchildren.
* One price, two gifts: Give a copy of your magical child’s painting to grandparents.
* Show a discouraged friend how magical and special they are – gift them a fantasy portrait of themself.
I wanted to tell you how great Kestril’s picture is! I recognized her even before seeing her photograph below – and anyway, I don’t know what she looks like in real life, but your picture captured perfectly how I experienced her during many phone calls! Fantastic work!!!
Wow, that is such supportive stuff to hear, thank you for taking the time to tell me!! You know that I have been drawing/painting less than 2 years, and doing digital art only about 2 months. So your feedback feel so good. Also, (backstory: I feel like I see a part of people they may not even see themselves. Part of what I do in classes is to help folks see these hidden amazing parts of themselves.) you are affirming I can portray this hidden self in a painting, wow, o wow o wow! … Funny, I was just saying the other day that sometimes seeing the best in a person makes me go into denial about how they are treating me badly, and that I want to change this dishonesty in myself. It may have been Bill Wilson who wrote, “Let us always love the best in others — and never fear their worst.” To apply that right now for me personally means letting myself continue to see the best, and not be in denial about the worst, LOL. And your post tells me that painting is one of my healthy outlets for seeing the best, so I need to keep doing it! Thanks so much for your awesome support!
