fav away my friend! And as alway ask away...your program is bit fancier than mine and I actually just started with ps a few months ago!

Yeah I actually like it, I ordered some books on manipulation so hopefully those will help too. Seems like you learned on your own? That is awesome...I really do like it...I wish I had more time, it seems to take a lotof time to get things the right way....but I like learning something new!!! :)

Looks very nice and pratice makes perfect as they say...the moon looks see through....is it a moon?
prprincess3869's avatar
It is a moon!!! I just can't figure out how to move it up further and then fix the bottom, but now I tried to go and fix it but all the layers are merged!!!! which means I would have to start from scratch!!!!
Shirleys-Art-Site's avatar
do you have clone....kind of like copy and paste
prprincess3869's avatar
Yes, I figured out how to do it. I just redid the whole manipulation over because I didn't think to just cut the moon out and paste it....:omfg: duh...Thanks!!! lol...:) I don't know why I didn't think of that. Maybe I was tired....lol... oh well

Nice! I like the composition of this, and that winged thing is creepy, gives it a sense of foreboding. With any artwork the lighting is key, especially where there is a distinct source. You did pretty well with the tree, although that is a hard position to make look real. everything else will be lit from that source, so there shouldn't be highlights on her back or behind her, unless there is something behind her for the light to bounce back from, but can be around her edges. A little bit of highlighting is ok, because the light will bounce off of the ground a little bit, but not strong highlights like on the back of her arm. Everything else in the picture that the light is falling on should have some level of highlight, or the stock photo should have the light aligned the same way. This is where setting up a still life with a lamp shining on it from different directions and studying the way the light falls on everything would help, but also just looking at different photos and concentrating only on the light and shadows.

Thanks Jon, yes that is one of the things that i'm having the hardest time with, its lighting and knowing where to put the highlights, also I think my highlights should have been softer on her arms and hair. thanks sooo much for the tips I will remember not to put highlights on the back if there is nothing to bounce off of or a source on her back. Awesome!! Thanks so much!!! I'm having sooo much fun learning this new thing!!!! :dance:

The moon only looks out of place because it appears to be a mountain or large hill behind the trees. And the moon could not obviously be in front of it. As far as the lighting and what not, their are some good tutorials on that around here. Other than that, from what I can see (watermark covers most of it) it looks pretty good.
prprincess3869's avatar
Hi Thanks so much for the tips. I took the watermark out. About the moon, I couldn't figure out how to bring it up and delete the line of the picture being moved that is why I left it there. I will try playing with it...:dance:

Definitely not bad for your second manipulation. Keep up on practice though, it helps alot. But, remember to have fun, otherwise what's the point.
