The Path of the Black Shroud

The obligatory reaper photo-manipulation

Back to photo-manipulating(or learning to combine photos) I go in the rare moments of spare time allocated to me. There's seriously not enough time in the day! Halloween is coming around the corner. Which means, it's fair game to start putting up all the spooky pictures.

The picture below is an artwork I created using a tutorial I found which featured a very fire happy grim reaper. I disliked the huge amount of neon beams the original tutorial used. Instead, I only used the free stock fire images to give the look of a flaming scythe.

All created from free stock images
If you click on the picture you can see it in a bigger view. I didn't upload the original as it was far too large at 4500 height by 3000 width(more or less). I'll be honest, I'm not a huge fan of using reapers. They creep me out but then I had to overcome that fear by completing the tutorial. Not a bad attempt. It could definitely be better but for a novice, it's a pretty cool picture.

In my next entry I'll share my latest book covers. One is for a fairy tale, the second is a paranormal book cover, and the third is for a fantasy adventure.

Need an eye-catching and affordable Kindle eBook cover creator? Or seeking a nostalgic trip down memory lane with vintage toys or VHS? Have a look at J&L Creations Etsy Shop. They're a fairly new shop but from the looks of it their store is flourishing with shabby chic crafts, quirky items, and vintage products. Have a look for yourself!

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.
