An Autumn Fairy Photo Manipulation

Here again this self published writer dwells into the unknown by trying her hand at photo manipulation. As I love to create fantasy worlds I chose to adapt a tutorial that helped create a fantasy scene using a fairy. I know, I know. One might think that fairies are overused these days. Yet they are also a bit expected in a fantasy & magic world. No harm in creating another right?

Here is the stock photo provided by Faestock at Deviantart as the base. I also used butterfly wings from Jinxmim at the same site as well. The rest of the stock photos are from Pixabay. The model uses her own makeup on her eyes, shoulders, and also on her fingers. Which to be honest was annoying to work with so I ended up painting over those areas. I also removed her floral barrettes to add my own flourish to her hair.

And here is the finished artwork I wanted to share with you all. To save on mobile users bandwidth I didn't upload the full version but instead a medium-sized one. Of course I can be biased here but I think it's very pretty. I love how the light enhances the wings. What I dislike is how the hair falls a bit too strangely on her arm. I need to work on how to airbrush that more properly. Overall it gives an autumn look and feel. Which is great, it's my favorite season.

Thank you for viewing!

Chronicles of Zaloria: The Varul

I'm nearly finished with a fantasy adventure trilogy of stories that features heavy romance elements. This series is a tad different from the fantasy adventures I often write about as they involve wolf-like humanoids set in a world where fairy tales and cultural legends collide.

X-Men Photoshops

Classic Angel Photoshop When Photo-shopping pictures was a cool trend on the net I tried my hand at making my own photo-manipulation artwork. Back then, I was heavily into all things related to Marvel's X-Men. Especially the early 90s cartoon with that guitar riff for an introduction.

Angel was one of the characters I liked but soley for the reason that he went out with Psylocke(telepathic ninja girl with a personality problem). At the time, an online friend had a birthday so I made him the above photomanip because Angel was actually his ultra favorite.

Long story short - I made this happily for a friend that later on turned out to be a fr-enemy.
Classic Jean Grey Photoshop
And here we have Jean Grey(telepathic telekinetic with boyfriend issues) in her classic uniform from that same era. You can see that I had trouble with the arm pieces but back then it was more about getting ideas out then actually being perfect at the art. It's still one of my favorite photoshops.
