This is even more amazing...what software would you use to create these animations other than photoshop.

Skydog - I don't know I don't think it's Photoshop but my knowledge of animation is nil. I did see a large bunny statue in Utrecht (in front of the University) that I suspect is what he uses for a source image.

(warning - the artist in this link has a casual European attitude towards nudity in other words probably NSFW)
More in a somewhat similar vein. Matt Whyman

Re: Mattijn Franssen

These images are really what i aspire to. but i have trouble making different images have similar colour ranges to each other in a composition. If that makes sense...?
When i put different images into one composition they are obviously different images. As in the linked website although the images aren't real they have the same colour composition throughout.
Do you know how this is done or is it a matter of choosing/using images with similar ranges already? He obvioulsy takes his own shots so can control that to a certain degree but it would be good to konw of a tutorial or good tips to do this.
I hope all that made sense!
Mike

Re: Mattijn Franssen

Mike,

I don't know how he does it. I know how others say they do it. You need to match tonal range with levels/curves and color range with hue/saturation layer(s)

(Photoshop almost always has multiple ways of achieving the same effect, personally I like using curves and gradients & textures to match up composited images). There are other considerations also which are beyond the scope of this thread. Steve Caplin has a wonderful book about this very subject (photomontage) called 'How to Cheat at Photoshop' - 'The art of creating realistic photomontage'. It's extremely well written, by that I mean easy to understand, beautifully organized and fun to read.

HTH Nancy

I aspire to something like this also

I didn't see his cat on the photo where he was naked facing a dinosaur with no head.

He must really love his cat.

I've seen his pix before, but never the animations. Stunning work.
