Evolution / Making Of of
Dark Wings Dark Words



This is not a classic tutorial, it's more a "Making of". What I want to show here is that an idea can and has to evolve with the stock and the reality - i.e. if something doesn't fit, even after multiple attempts to make it fit, get rid of it. Don't keep it just because you have spent so much time on it.

Stock Credits for the finished piece:
background by xxMyNightmarexx, clouds by SalsolaStock, nebula by Moonchilde-Stock, metal bird by rifka1, bird's head and feet by Camaryn-Wallpaper, skull by ChristasVengel-stock, script texture by mellowmint, frame by EveyD, ribbon by cylonka, key by Inadesign-Stock, bubbles by LuckyStock, keyholes by Autopsyrotica-Art (when they still were KornKidSam), smoke brushes by revn89, feather brushes and lense flares from my own stash.

Additional Stock used in the different stages:
Type texture by~locololastock , letter by ~HelenaRothStock as well as several different images not shown in the steps and quickly forgotten :aww:
