Only she can bring him to his knees. 

Pink Dot Bullet - F2U! 

I know it's a bit of a cheesy subject, but I made this for a valentines day challenge so that's totally valid! 
Made for the following challenge: fav.me/daxl7s0 in the group :iconcrphotomanipulation: 
The only rule to the challenge is to use a male and female model from two seperate stock images. 

Pink Dot Bullet - F2U! 

Making this photo manipulation was a great way to practice my skills. It's the sixth work I made since I started. While working on it, I had to figure out new techniques in order to get the image to look as I wanted it to. I've learned some handy tricks and I also learned how to install plug-ins to Paint.net, which is the program I used for making this. I tried to work at as high a resolution as possible for the first time. Finding the right stock images and cutting out all of the objects was tricky but fun to do. It took me a few versions to assemble the right composition of stock photo's. 

Many hours have gone into making this and while working on it, I've also looked at other people's artworks, trying to figure out what makes a good photo manipulation. Doing so I figured that a lot of manipulated images make use of strategic placement of objects. While some great photo manipulations have a ton of different elements, I feel like the greatest images are achieved, by combining few elements in an outstanding way. Right now, I am still practicing, so not having tried to work around tricky things to edit has been good for me. In the future I hope to make art that I would personally love to have in my "featured" section of my favorites (that is, art that really grabs me).

A lot of people who do photo manipulation talk about lighting and making sure all colors look realistic. Though what I came to love about photo-manipulation is that, even though most images seem close to real, they really are not. They're art, and in art anything can happen. With this, I wanted to create a bright and vibrant image with many different colors, contrary to what you see in many photo manipulations, where colors are often lost in favor of atmosphere.

Ahh fun! While working on this I even thought you two might have something to do with each other in real life, for some reason. ^_^ 
Hope you like my work!
