View Full Version : Second Fairy for project

Photoshop 6, Vue d'Esprit, original digital image.

Worked more with compositing than anything else with this one. I stuck dragonfly wings on the model and then placed her in a scene I rendered with Vue. A little filtering to make it a tad more cohesive and, voila!, get that bug outta my yard!

Whatcha all think?

Binarily yours,

I like the wings, how did you do them ?

Speaking of the wings, I like that you put her body in shadow beneath the wings. Adds to the realism of the piece. Good attention to detail.

I appreciate the comments.

Mouse: the wings were taken from a stock photo of damselfly wings. Then I used PS to turn them the way I wanted and to make some perspective changes. Unfortunately, if you look at the top of the right wing, I accidentally snipped the top off! Opps...

Digi: I'm currently reading Photoshop 6 for Photographers. It has some great info on compositing and shadows were one of the many things the author mentions. Glad it works for you!
