Happy Halloween - share your own creations

Post by minniev » Thu Nov 01, 2018 2:53 pm

My three little guys wanted Meme to take a picture of a pose they chose, and change the background to match their costumes from last night. I am headed to the country for a couple of days but had to churn out my first draft of my assignment before I leave. Here they are, and I'd appreciate suggestions for making them better. Want to print them 8x10 for the boys next week.

I already know I want to add some smoke and steam for Harry Potter and the Reaper from Fortnite. But I've gotta find some PS brushes, my first attempt to do it with a texture was a dismal failure. I've spotted some free brushes but working with them will have to wait a few days. And i know I need to do work on the lighting. Tell me anything else you think might help. They'll be perfectly satisfied as-is but it's good practice for me to make them better.

And if you did a Halloween composite for your little friends, or just for fun, feel free to add it.

Cool Minnie !!! I don't have any, so no posts from me. However, all 3 are exceptional with very little work left for the first two. I would suggest some shadows on those and try to add a little depth, especially to the second one. The last one needs more work. The dark area needs to be removed to have a more realistic look and feel. Composites are so much fun to do and self rewarding when everything comes together with unnoticeable mistakes.

I’ll work on the steam/fog/smoke aspect and shadows/light when I get home. On the third, I couldn’t find a good ninja background, this one had that black part in the middle. It made it easy to drop Luke in, but it wasn’t as cool as the others. I will look for a more interesting one, and may start this one over.

I’ll give you some! (I know you took Halloween shots, c’mon now). I have extras of Harry Potter, my most dramatic grandchild, in a variety of poses including one where he climbed a tree.

Thanks, it is fun to work with “familiar subjects!” Lots more interesting than stock models.
