About the Image(s)

I prepared this composite as my digital Halloween greetings to friends. It is a combination of 6 images, and painting with brushes in photoshop. The background, tree, Ravens in tree, fire, Don’t Open and spider were each cut out from other images and added to the background. Many layers and a lot of masking and blending in Photoshop. I found a spiderweb brush online and carefully painted in the spider. Red eyes were brushed in on the fire image. The ghosts to the right were also painted. I hoped to display some spookiness coupled with whimsy.

I know you went to a lot of work to pull all of these images together, and have them all fit well...However, the fire images seems out of place to me, as it dominates the scene.... way too bright for the rest of the first I thought it was a lady wearing a dark bathing suit, until I reread your description...Love the "DON"T OPEN" one..overall it is well done.   Posted: 11/17/2021 16:29:45

Very nice concept. The elements come together nicely. I feel that the blue spider could be toned down a bit as well as the fire? on the left. They seem to dominate the picture a little too much. I would lighten the ravens a little so that they don't blend in with the tree as much.   Posted: 11/19/2021 14:47:29
