Sinfonia by Lilyas Sinfonia by Lilyas
Number seven in the series of Magical Roses is coming to you: The White Rose! This time no water droplets on it.

This is not my best picture and maybe you won't believe it but this was the hardest of all picture editings I have ever done!!! You all know this rose is deep red colored in original and I had to take away all the color without losing depth and contrasts. No, people, you don't want to know how I have done it! I just recommend to everyone of you: If you want to have a white rose take a picture of a white rose!!! I was close to give up and selecting a photo of a real white rose instead. But I really wanted it to be the same beautiful rose as in the other images which is to me the most beautiful rose ever. :heart:

+ + + A T T E N T I O N + + + A T T E N T I O N + + +

For all of you who wanted to know what breed this rose is: I FOUND IT OUT !!! Anyone else, too?

You can find the original colored rose on my photo account *Viliggoly: [link] and here: [link]

The title is handwritten like in all other pieces of the rose series.

This white flower reminds me of a Dandaline. I think that's the name of the flower.

you can still see so much detail, and yet it's so bright, almost like it's glowing with it's own light. <3 wow.

Katy Perry shot fireworks from her chest witch made Usher scream "OMG" so loud that Rihanna became mentally retarted and then walked around saying "Whats My Name?". Well, Willow Smith became so annoyed she threatend to Whip Her Hair at Rihanna if she didn't stop. So Bruno Mars got so mad he threw a grenade at her. But then Ke$ha defending Willow, said We R Who We R! Eminem came in, saying 'I'm not afraid' , then Nelly woke up and said " it was just a dream!"

I cited your work, in a really important IB essay ( the extended essa y. ) I did not change your work, or use it in any of my own artwork. I simply used this piece as an example of didigtal art. Is this alright? If it is not, then i will change up my essay immediately, because it is due the 13th, of december. Thank you so much.

Can you please make an avatar for this beautiful art for my avatar in deviantART?
Lilyas Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2009  Professional General Artist
If you like you can do that yourself. I give you permission to use this flower for your DA avatar! Let the people know about it otherwise I will get reports of worried deviants sooner or later.
ForeverWithHim Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2009
I would like it if you could do an avatar for me. You can put copyright, if you want to. I don't like (and never have) copied other peoples' work. How should I alert everyone about me having your creation's avatar? Should I post it on my Journal?
Lilyas Featured By Owner Jun 21, 2009  Professional General Artist
You mean you want a personal avatar that only you is allowed to use? There are two ways of getting something done from me: 1. I make something and it's available and free for everyone. 2. You commission me and get something personal.
ForeverWithHim Featured By Owner Jun 21, 2009
The first one.
Lilyas Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2009  Professional General Artist
In this case you have to wait until I have time to make a new free avatar.
