Re: Castle Fantasy land ?

This is so much fun, still a work in progress, but I do need to get some real work done. I've never created fire or mist before, this was a great excuse to google the processes.
Edited to add: Thank you Palms, for starting these threads. I like your version above, if the sky weren't just plain black I could see it as a book cover!

Re: Castle Fantasy land ?

Great work so far Lynnie, I had thought of doing some mist but didnt as i wasnt sure how to except for brush's of which i have spent to much time looking for and at

but like you i enjoy having a bash ! it is a way of doing something different and learning or remembering how to do things

Excellent Chas! Love the misty early morning feel, great dragons.

Very cool Ol Baldy. Dark and fierce image. Whereas in Chas' composition, I feel that the dragons are visiting the castle, in your image I feel the dragons live there.

Well done both of you!

Re: Castle Fantasy land ?

I was running out of room for monsters so called it quits. My only inspiration was that the dog is an observer.

Oh well done on the effects and the flock of dragons adds "motion" to the image - neat!

Re: Castle Fantasy land ?

Ray yes they are all friendly here it takes a bit getting used to the 100k limit for photo's ( you can put a link as well though) but it does mean that the images are always there which is great when you go back to old threads ( which can be renewed so to speak )

And here's a new thread which might be up your street from a name you will know as well

Hi Palms

Well that was fun...just posted sylvia's car...image is a bit small though...and not high quality.

May use links in future where there is detail etc as 100kb is quite small..

Take care and best wishes

Ray
