Today's Photoshop Play!


I did the drawing for this a couple nights ago as well as some rough color fill in.  Yesterday, I finished a first version that incorporates two of my altered photos (unlike the normal four), and it had a much darker color scheme.  I initially posted a photo of that one until reworking it today and liking this one much better!

As part of today's rework, I've learned much more about Photoshop.  The "Layer via Copy" is a nice feature that allows for color correction of the base image that are altered by layers of different types of adjustments made to that layer when you don't use a mask.

I've also learned something about myself through the process on this project.  If the result of my work triggers any inkling of dissatisfaction or a sense that something just isn't quite right...the piece is not yet done, even if I've already worked on it a long time.
