Fantasy Fairy art challenge

there has been some interest shown of late on this subject and one that isnt seen that often here

so

anyone fancy taking up the challenge or is there some one to show the way ?

here are some brush links
obsidian dawn
photoshop mama look in the freebies She also has a video on how to use the brushes in fantasy art
here are some images i have found /taken

the tree ones are mine if you want bigger images give me a shout and i will put them in photobucket and post the link
the children are from morgue file (really hard to find any other models etc post a link if you know of some)


try and use at least one of these images but your own additions are welcome

I used that 4th image to create this 2 years ago - the fairies are Poser renders.

Re: Fantasy Fairy art challenge

I love ObsidianDawn pixie wings, I tend to put them on everything...too much. lol

I used Automate>Photomerge>Interactive Layout to combine the two backgrounds. Something I wish I'd know for the Neptune challenge.

I just ran an action I made to improve the basic pictures it goes like this;
Increase the contrast of the red channel
De-noise the blue channel
Sharpen the green channel
(It's pretty amazing what this does on like camera phone pictures) I need to rewrite it because it can make some pictures too dark.
To mask the girls I used Apply Image>Linear Dodge to increase the contrast.

Re: Fantasy Fairy art challenge

Not good at compositing Palms, so I hid that behind a little rendering. Still not good (maybe a tad too much glitter and stuff; lol).

Lyle i think it is lovely (Honest) between you and me i think with compositing you can hide a lot of things like bad masking and get away with over the top ( have you seen mine ?)
