By FAR my most intensive photomanipulation to date. This took probably 10-12 hours. Because I'm not very practiced with photomanipulation at all. I was excited at just about every step: changing the eyes to fire as step number one, figuring out how to add light, changing the color of the clothes, darkening the background, remembering to add little finger shadows on the ground, learning how to use smudge... you name it, I was excited about it. I am such a geek. I still think it looks kinda hot, relatively.
And much better than my previous photomanipulations:
Claiming the Debt
and Mortician and Wife
And now thank you's and credits..
