Kind of a "what if...?" thing. Newstar from ElfQuest all grown up. Since she seemed to like the stars too, I figured that this picture would be ideal for her. The idea is Newstar wondering where all of the stars went.
When it comes to photomanipulation, I tend to do more manipulation than cut and paste, though the manipulation in this one is mostly done on the girl. Shadows were done by paintbrush, and the trees and grass behind her are supposed to represent the shadow of her past, and the fact that she cannot return, so whether she likes it or not, she is stuck in the "Now."
