Just breathtaking. :faint: I wish I could see it in a larger view to view all the detail. The castle looks rather mysterious up there through the mist, and the cranes were a great touch. :clap:

yes I try to avoid creating things cliche. I strive to create my own style(which I'm still working on), but I do get allot of influence from other artist.

But that is only for contrast and color adjustments, not cut-outs?

Alegion Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2008  Professional General Artist
well when I finish a manip..

1. I flatten all the layers to one single layer.
2. I copy this single layer using > retangular maquee tool on the whole image.
3. I use my History table to go back before I flatten the whole image so you retain all your layers in case you need to go back and fix something.
4. I paste what I copied earlier as the top layer.
Now you can adjust the whole image instead of just one cut-out at a time, plus I use this method to blend everything together.

RephaimNoir Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2008  Hobbyist General Artist
so did you just cut around them and then stick them together? i use photo shop as well but i wouldn't know where to start. also how did you do the atmospheric effects? for example, your finished pagoda looks different to the one from the stock image.
Reply
:iconalegion:
Alegion Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2008  Professional General Artist
yes each object was cut out, then added .. sorta like a montage. I adjust the color tones and light level for each object so it blends in better. As for the "atmospheric effects" Iused a cloud and mist brush which you can download for free on DA or on other sites. Hope that helps a little. Theres a bit more to it... but I would have to actually write a tutorial :D
