The scene is very very well done. I extremely love the costume and her hair looks perfect as Merida. The settings is also very fitting, as if this was exactly where Merida was led around the woods by the willow of the wisps. The willow of the wisps although, could make some little work on to to improve the colors. Making it look like its lighting up more may help to highlight them more, but it certainly looks great as it is. Lastly, the overall light within the photograph seems to need some contrast, but I certainly love this cosplay.
I like the tone of feel for this. The only thing that throws me off is the flames...I think they could be slightly more realistic. But they do give a sifi like feel to the image. Not sure if they show up like that in the film since I haven't seen it. Other wise I like everything else.
Thanks :3 Ya~ this photo is already one year old, and now, I would do it different, but thank you so much for your critique ^.^ Now, I have the same opinion, as you have, about those will-o'-wisps, but I think this photo marks a great milestone at my way of improving editing
That is good. Yea I bet if I start playing with the digital part of my photos again I do the same thing but it drive me nuts to make it more realistic. Someone told me they like me to add effects to these photos I took of them. The only thing by hand or even photo layering effects take a heck of a while. But if I do I sure to share here so I can see if I can also learn something from my development on the little hobby I once had for fun. Glad it helped and we see on the same page.
Ah~ x_X Ja I have the same problem~ My biggest problem so far is, to add realistic fire to photos, and I CAN'T find any good tutorials about it. *sigh* But I think, in the end, we all keep improving ^^ We all started without any knowledge and if we keep going on and accept critique, we all will get better :3 I think, you'll be able to create some awesome effects ♥
yup, I mean I had to make an image of a friend laying down look like she was under water. I looked up water backgrounds and patterns till I found one that look as if it could fit. Faded it till I think it ok but I also had to add fog to give it that murky look. The jewelry was hard to add because it bright up on the photo. So with a lot of layers and image altering I finally got my friend to look like a mermaid. But I believe so too that we improve from our previous works. Thank you.
Yea it was, but I mean when you try to take a different view of a photo and see something with in it to transform it to your view it would be work. That what I like about the creative idea of altering photos but I don't do it often because I don't get ideas for every photo I take hardly.
