I thought it was plain and empty, I tried to make it better, then it looked so... average. So I tried to make it lighter and cleaner, but then it didn't look as magic-filled. Now it sits there, a bit confused. But: it's done! I have completed my first* photo-manipulation in about forever! If it wasn't so late at night, I would celebrate:D

I was going to write a nice description, about doing what you're passionate about and going off to do new unknown things... and now it's too late so I'm just going to go to sleep. Hopefully sleep will take me somewhere unknown and amazing!

This is my entry for the Journey to an Unknown Place contest.
Stocks:
Texture by koko-stock
Texure by Sirius-sdz
Texture by Lakela
Sky bySalsolaStock
Background by mdreamer-stock
Mountains by PirateLotus-Stock
Lake by AustriaAngloAlliance
Boat by sun-stock
(model is one of my own)

I think this is my last manipulation, though. It's broken (I can see so many mistakes now I don't know how I missed them earlier), getting light and colours to work together is a pain I don't have to deal with when painting (not in the same way, anyway), finding good stocks takes more than actually putting them together.

It's lovely!! Maybe needs a little more contrast, but (what do I know about photo manipulation anyway) it's really good! I'd love to see you paint more, if you're giving up on this!

Thanks! I know it does, but it's too early since I finished it to go back (I'll try to make it better and end up hating it more).
I'm going to paint more! I already started a little:)

Painting!! YAAAY! Also, was this what you posted on the blog because all I see is html code‽

Fixed! It was supposed to embed this image in the blog post, but I guess it broke.

Haha, thanks! Maybe I'll come back to manipulating when I have more time and less work to do:)
