Re: July 07 Contest

The 'girls' pic is terrific, but I couldn't figure out how to use it - used all the rest.

Re: July 07 Contest

I'm noticeably lacking in talent in this kind of thing, but I've missed out on the last couple of contests, and I wanted to be able to vote on this one, as I expect there'll be some really imaginative creations.

I used the following.

Trees
Dummy
Mantis
Moth
Sword
Park

Re: July 07 Contest

So many fabulously creative entries so far!

My effort was an enoyable way to spend a rather soggy Independence Day afternoon. I used 6 of the 8 source images in my fantasy composition: dummy, girls, mask, moth, sword and trees.

"The Guardian"

EDIT (16 Jul 07): Added elements from the remaining two sources: mantis and park. Did some tweakage and added some details to complete my vision of the legend of "The Guardian".
