What darkness brings... by digitalextacy What darkness brings... by digitalextacy
In celebration of All Hallow's Eve.

I finally found some time to post again. I started this one last night and finished up this morning. The blending could use a bit more tweaking and i'm not quite happy with the lighting but I'm pretty happy with the results.

BIG THANKS TO:

Stock photos used: BlackDove; neubie; Luna-Mora; the statue is from Dantes stock. (srry I can't find the link).

Brushes used: kittyd; poison-stock; PrettyBrush.

Thank you for the use of your amazing photos and brushes!

Cool manip and really impressed with what you've done with my stock, especially the one of me in the strait jacket. Looks awesome :D

This is just so amazingly composed, the colours are excellent and I really love the how everything is mirrored.

Awesome :+fav:

Freakies...as I opened the link to this picture, the wind blew my curtain so hard that the flimsy thing knocked my big, heavy lamp off the table, causing much noise of surprise. Not even kidding.

Despite the eerieness that seems to seep from the computer screen into this world (or perhaps because of it), it's fabulous.

cooooll..

Not sure about the eyes though. If they were oriented towards the girl I'd feel the piece was more menacing, but then kitty eyes can only do so much..

I like this a lot, if not for any other reason than that its a photomanipulation with a very painterly feel, but there are other reason. The mood is excellent especially for this time of year, and the symmetry of the framing trees and the lair in contrast of the non symmetry of everthing else is also a nice touch. And lastly, the use of yellow for the eyes instead of the cliched red is a big +

Congrats, this is very cool.
