Before & After Metamorphis

So as you can see I flipped the image as I always think that the left represents the past and the right, the future.....but that's just me ;-) Then I changed her hair colour and put some lace clothing on her by using the path tool to isolate the areas I wanted to cover with the lace texture. Oh and I nearly forgot to say I made her skin a very light shade of blue by bringing down the saturation.

Next I painted in her hair to make it red and put an orange layer over her which I painted opaquely in dark brown with different brushes, grunge, scratch etc to create the faint forest feeling. I actually created a larger size square canvas so that there was more space below her feet and above her head. I like the background to be hardly visible so that all your attention is on the woman. I gave her a hoop like I did the women in my last two photos here and here and this time instead of hand drawing it I used the ellipse select tool and painted the selection with the gradient tool in brown and turquoise because I'm just really loving those contrasting colours at the moment.

I have to go now and process some of those photos that I took at the studio on Monday. Bye for now and happy shooting ;-)
