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.

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.
