    This image is composed of four scans... The face, the moon, the peace-sign/crucifix (a necklace pendant I used to wear in my younger days :-) and a direct scan of a furby-knockoff, to give the whispy effect in the picture.
    The rest is just a lot of brushplay.

    hmm... apparently the attachment disappears if you choose "preview" before committing the post...

    Here it is then :-)

      This is a very dark almost ominous image. I don’t think I would awaken from that dream feeling happy. I like the depth and texture in this image…scratchy, course, gritty -- real. The stark white face really contracts with the dark images surrounding it. My eye keeps going there and to that eye. The eye conveys a very strong expression, one that gives you the impression that you are in quite a lot of trouble. And finally, the text passages really tie the composition together. I like the balance of the orange fire in the top right with the orange glowing text in the lower left. What font did you use for the text? Nicely done.

        The font is called Bearpaw...

        I got it (and other cool free fonts) from

          Very cool image. My eye keeps getting drawn to the eye near the lower left corner. It is dark and moody. Well done.

            It is very interesting . Even though your image quotes the Bible it has a very dark and foreboding air to it. Feels sinister to me.

              Really like this image - the peace symbol looks scarred, and the face in the corner adds to the atmosphere - the type makes you think - really great work

                Thank you all for the kind words!

                I was actually very pleased with the image myself, but there's nothing like praise and/or constructive critisism to make you want to make more

                  I made this poster for my church's youth group for their upcoming winter retreat. It was my first time doing a poster cause i've been learning retouch work, but tell me what you guys think.

                  Making Text Look Realistic?
                  by stedders
                  I have quite a lot of this sort of work coming up.
                  – Take a product = remove existing text;
                  – then replace it with proposed new text

                  inevitably, as this is something that is being kicked about by various Marketing "bods" the text will go through dozens of...

                  Text to Shape: doesn't work with faux bold
                  by kbro
                  I bought the Hidden Power book for PE2 purely to get the "Make Shape of Selection" tool. And it works very well, thank you. Then I spotted the "Text to Shape" tool, which I thought would be handy for sending files to other people without having to worry what fonts they'd got installed....

                  arched text with vanishing point
                  by ahurst2001

                  I paint watercolors and do customized prints from the paintings. I have run into a snag on my current project. I need to be able to add arched text into the two red areas of this painting and also maintain the perspective. I am not sure how to achieve both the arch and vanishing...

                  My Text that scrolls through is Choppy and not smooth.
                  How can I get it too flow smoothly?
                  Im using CS2
                  I take the text and move it off the sig on the Right side.
                  I open Animation and click on Duplicate next Frame,then...
