The idea behind my concept is Inner Beauty.
A lot of girls have problems finding themselves beautiful.
This image is a mirror image of a girl telling herself that she is beautiful.
First I drew a profile image of a woman's face using the brush tool at 3pt.
I then brought in a paper background. I used the brush tool with a water color brush to fill in the face and lips, and out an opacity of 60%
Next I changed the size of the canvas because I found there was too much empty space on the top.
I took the image of the face and copied the layer and flipped it horizontally so it mirrored the image on the left.
I wanted to add a subtle background, so I found line drawings of my favorite flower, the hibiscus, and placed them in the background. I then applied the layer blending Multiply to get rid of the white background and applied an opacity of 80%.
I then added a wispy smoke effect to symbolize a whisper effect. I then added the words "you're beautiful" into the smoke.
And here is the final product
