A Fairy in the Garden

on another forum im a mod on we have a monthly challenge. this particular months challenge was based on the famous fairy photographs, we had to do our interpretation of them. this is what i did.



the wings have been photoshopped of course!. to make the wings i used a pitch black room and a torch to get some wing shaped light trails, i then wanted to add a fill in colour so i googled how to make iridescence in photoshop. http://www.scrapbook-bytes.com/chat/...photoshop.html is the tutorial i followed. you need to scroll down the discussion a little for the tut!

Re: A Fairy in the Garden

Excellent technique, thanks for sharing the link - really interesting! Think the doll has quite flat lips though, could do with botox? sorry - my sense of humour! I just hate Bratz!

Lovely image!
