Protection Ritual by peroline Protection Ritual by peroline
I made this for the The Ritual - Contest OPEN! 3 days left.
I chose to depict a Spirit performing a ritual to protect the forest, creating a barrier so the evil won't be able to penetrate its habitat.
Update : I initially chose to distort the forest to make it look kind of magical, but after a while, I started to find it looked weird...So I fixed it and I made it a little greener.

Photo manipulation is something I wish I was good at and always blows me away when it's done properly. How you take many things, and throw them together in one image and make them all look like they belong is an awesome skill to have. You can create magic from every day things.

Great work.

I love the duality of the dark skirt covering half the image, then the beautiful forest in the back for the upper half. Let alone this is totally creepy. :P
Great work. :)

...and i thought the owl skeleton was funny (nice funny, not silly funny)

:w00t!: Thank you so much, I'm glad you perceived the duality between the skirt and the forest. I was trying to imply that the spirit is protecting the forest by creating a barrier with its skirt. :)
