My attempt at Hanzz's excellent rose tutorial. Pencil drawing, Roller & palette knife for background, airbrush and many stencils for petals.

Hard to find a more proficient pupil for Hanzz then! It's an absolute marvel! A warm welcome and congratulations!

Welcome Bacon and oh my oh my what a beautiful flower you have created. Well done:)

Thank you all for the kind words. I have been around here for a couple of years now, but don't get much of a chance to do much stuff with Artrage. It's always satisfying to finally get work completed and posted here.

Absolutely Gorgeous! A darkened bkg would enhanse it, tho.

Thanks all for the wonderful encouragement. I have tried a different background just to see if it works or not. I'm not sure, but see what you think anyway.

I prefer tonally and texturally the last one, although I would perhaps chose a different hue range, not very uniform one, better contrasting with the rose pale pink.

I think if you just darken the orig bkg, it will work well. If the bkg is a sep layer, click on it, then go to edit, go to Adjust layer color, change the % of dark/bright. The preview window shows the result. When you're happy, hit save.

Tried darkening the original background. Didn't want to go too far though as it started to look a little washed out.

I think you did well. See how your original colors harmonize, and now, drop behind the flower?

Yes, thanks Skylar for the suggestion. If i had time I think I would prefer to redo the background completely using stronger, deeper colours as I think that the brightness alteration has left them looking washed out.
