About the Image(s)

This is my grandson, Edison. I wanted to do a composite/painting of him. I had an air balloon image and decided to send him up in it. The air balloon basket was painted using the PS oil paint filter. I extracted Eddie from his original image and then hand painted him in PS, using the mixer brushes. I also gave him an aviator helmet and replaced his toy with a globe. This one was fun to paint, and his parents were happy with the creative result.

I absolutely love the composite and wow, the time it took to mask out the balloon strings to show the beautiful background. Kudos to you!   Posted: 06/20/2022 15:48:43

To be honest, the balloon strings were already set against a blue sky. I just applied the Oil Paint filter to the balloon setting and sky. I was not going to individually paint all the balloon strings. I did add a little bit of "fog" to make it look like Eddie was higher in the clouds. Only Eddie was painted using mixer brushes.   Posted: 06/20/2022 15:57:52
