Let's talk a little about inspiration.
Most people who involve themselves in the SL blogging and flickr community will immediately see where this photograph is inspired from. AliceinChains Arun has been a long-standing member of SL, and is well known for her use of flowers and lighting in her pictures. I took a quick study of her pictures yesterday, and where I am no-where near her level of editing skills, I'm not at all mad about how this picture turned out, and I have learned a couple of things along the way. Isn't that what inspiration is?

I want to make a quick note and say while I have enjoyed this attempt to re-create something from someone I admire, I by no means intend to continue along this path. I am absolutely adoring learning at the pace I'm currently going at, and believe that my pictures should tell a story.
I want to work more on getting emotion into my images, along with becoming more comfortable with shading, exploring different angles, and eventually moving to slightly edited hair - mostly hairlines and fly-aways. I am grateful for every single piece of information I have garnered and hope that although I may take inspiration from other artists, I present what I have learned in a way that is "Pickle".
Today I want to challenge you to take inspiration from someone, and put YOUR personal spin on it. Whether that be a blogger, photographer, DJ or any other creative outlet, give it a go and see what you learn. xoxo
