Model shot in studio on black fabric. . .  My first try at using a beauty dish. My assistant is getting tired of me dressing her up all the time. 
Edited in PS face for the correct look
Four images I took from four different states make the background
Moon at night cell phone - Plymouth Falls WI
Statue In cemetery - Ohio
Abandoned Building - Milton VA
Blue sky with clouds - Pensacola Florida

I used portions of all the images that worked for the background
Then an overlay of frost
Brushes, erase here and there, merge, layer, merge, layer blah blah
Another image of color and shading on top of all that and opacity dropped.  Them off to Lightroom for the final edit which I usually do about ten of and pick from there.  This is a Holga edit with a color overpay. smile

One day I'm gonna actually learn what I'm doing and then I'll be happy with my art.

Title:Rosa and her Puppy, I shot Rosa on a white backdrop, pasted her into a background which I created from a composite that was composed of 5 photos. Add adjustment layers to blend. A friend drew the dragon in poser. I repainted it entirely and painfully dodged and burned all of the dragon texture, then added adjustment layers to blend..

NOTE: I'm not sure if this comply's with Rule #14. I do not look at the dragon as the "Main Character". However if enough people disagree, please say so and I will withdraw as noncompliance with rule #14...
