Dreams and Psyche

I have been preparing and revamping my style.  Recently I had read the story of Cupid and Psyche and fell in love.  Basically the fairytale tells of a mortal girl who's beauty was so magnificent that Cupid (the son of Aphrodite) fell in love with her.  I have decided to use this story as fodder for reviving my style.

My goal is to attain a dreamy, whimsical inspired look highlighting natural beauty with little details that are only noticed when close up.

My main sources of inspiration are from the story of Cupid and Psyche, Salvador Dali's art and the movies Aeon Flux, Darjeeling Limited, and The Little Princess.
