Alright... so I swore to myself over the past month that I wasn't going to set foot back here. Well technically that statement is still true. Tonight I was listening to my iPod, drinking Grape Vitamin Water, and looking through my pictures via Adobe Bridge. Well images and concept came into my head, and thus I had to share this with -someone-.
SO I'm sharing it here.
Notes: The original art featured Kim's eyes in focus, one of them complete white, one complete black. It's suppose to be heavily colored with reds and yellows, though Tommy's turned out more red than what I wanted but you win some you lose some. I was working with LQ pics which I hate doing, simply because if they were HQ this would have turned out so much better. LQ = Ass, HQ = Heaven. Nonetheless, when my mind starts forming a concept, nothing will stop me from finishing it.
So glad to see you back in business, Chris! The art is great, love the sleepy Tommy pic you used and as usual you did that beautiful blending which is still a mystery to me as to how you manage to do that (:
Okay, I checked your afterphaze youtube channel and oh yay! Thanks a lot for the vid tutorial. It gave me several new tips (: Though I reckon we would have to have a picture with white background to do that?
And if you could show us how to do your pretty blending background that would be great, lol.

Actually, Liz, white is the HARDEST to blend. It is one of my biggest pet peeves with pictures. Black is the easiest, and pictures with various backgrounds can be challenging, but white drives me nuts. When you erase the white, it creates this desaturated look to the actual image.
