Re: fantasy pics

thank u so much palms...i will try to explain
cut out ur pic subject your fave way
create new document
select a background color that compliments ur subject matter accordingly, now with your primary colors set on black and white make a new layer and render clouds and set the opacity however you think looks best, now
insert ur cropped subject into the new document use the eraser tool on this layer if you need to clean up ur edges (use a medium-lrg eraser with soft edges)
now create 2 new layers under ur person's pic (i downloaded some wings brush sets and chose my fairy wings) use one wing in each layer) color however u want using layer syles gradient overlay
to make plasma rings use the eliptical marquee tool on another NEW LAYER on TOP of ur subjects picture...elipse an appropriate size, now right click and choose transform selected then right click again and choose perspective and adjust it so it seems to be going around ur subject, now right click...choose stroke, and the color code should be #d4eaf8 set to 3 on width u can repeat this over and over to create multiple rings, now go to layer style, outside glow and adjust it til it looks how you want it....then i made another new layer and used various brushes for the sparkles and pixies and such and adjusted the layer style and add outside glow, and you can tamper with the selective color of ur subject to compliment the background as u see fitting...whew...that was a lot to type in a quickie...i'm at work so i'm going all by memory on what i did..anyway...i hope this is helpful...i'd love to see when ur done

Re: fantasy pics

To me pic 1 looks way too soft, pic 2 looks ok, pics 3 and 4 look like they have been softly garnished

Re: fantasy pics

thanks for taking the time to check out my pics cassidy but the first one doesn't look that soft to me...not WAY to soft anyway, it's actually my personal favorite, that one and the 2nd pic, the 3rd pic was my very first attempt and the 4th one, i was just playing around and the original pic wasn't of the best quality in the first place...but i respect your opinion
