Welcome to the February Cat D 'PCM' Challenge!
(Photo Composite / Manipulation)

This challenge is about developing your photo editing skills. To edit your original image to fit the theme.
You may have to add ... or ... you may have to remove ... whatever it takes.

This months theme is "Mythical"

This theme is pretty much what it says, anything that is imaginary, fictitious, make-believe, fantasy, fanciful, invented, fabricated, made-up, unreal, untrue. It could be a comic character, story tale character, a legendary story passed down thru generations of family's to scare people. As long as it's fiction, made up and has your doll in the picture. It doesn't have to be scary. As long as you think it to be untrue!


some examples:








Incoming Host ... The following rules cannot be changed or modified.

1. The host will create a theme that requires the entrant to edit their original image......
2. Each entrant will post their entry and the original image......................................
3. A new composite completed in the last 30 days by yourself and never posted before...
4. An entry may contain any mixture of dolls.........................................................
5. Please supply the name of your doll(s) and a title for your submission......................
6. Doll nudity is acceptable, but not required.......................................................
7. Image editing is required..............................................................................
8. Do not break any TDF rules regarding photos, and comply to The Doll Album AUP.......


This challenge will end on the 25th Feb 4am est with the next three days open for voting. This is a short month so get a move on :D

Lilith,

All you have to do is post a regular photo of yourself.

You are the doll, the myth and the legend!

Well, allow me to kick this one off. :)

This isn't a specific myth, but it's inspired by a common trope - the beauty and the beast.

I'm calling this Anna Marie in "To Calm the Savage Beast"

There are three images.
First, the background (I don't know who painted this, but kudos to them!!)
I added some room to the right to allow space for Anna. It turned out that that wasn't necessary, but my original idea needed more space. I also removed the little tiny person in there, and gave the dragon a slightly longer tail so that it could wrap around Anna Marie a little bit more.

I also added a basket of flowers, because I wanted to sort of pump up the "innocence" of Anna Marie for this. My idea was to go for the peasant flower girl. Not sure I completely got there, but, I tried. lol
I also stole a flower from this and added it to her hair because... that's what flower girls do, as far as I can tell. ;)

And, of course, Anna Marie. I had to do a fair bit of painting the light and shadows in. There was no way for me to recreate this sort of moody lighting and still get a usable image. For that, I put a layer above Anna's and set the blending mode to Overlay. I then used black and white paint (brush set to 10% opacity) and slowly painted in the light. This is a current favorite technique of mine. I also stretched her legs out a bit because once I dropped her in the perspective didn't seem quite right.

Once everything was composited and adjusted to the best of my ability, I made a flattened copy and used the blur tool to soften/blend the edges of Anna Marie into the background.

Anyway.... a long explanation that barely touches the surface. I'll stop babbling. lol.

Hope you like it. :)

LOL. When I heard the theme I immediately had half a dozen ideas. It's all those years of reading Dungeon and Dragons rule books. It's finally paying off! ;)
