Okay, first of all... I AM SO STOKED THAT THIS IS HERE!!!
I'm gonna post some of my work for now, but I also will be posting tutorials on how I did some of this stuff too.. but for now, briefly, I combine and layer the main photo plus photos of textures that I've taken plus digital painting, tweaking color, saturation, curves, levels, contrast, etc..
First up, my grandma's freaky dolls (well, I kinda made them freakiER):
Next, my kitty, Sadie:
...and the following are a few shots from Austin:
and one of the Watts Atelier crew in Austin (they tell me that dumpster was pretty rancid, but it made for a nice shot):
Okay, that's it for now.. I will be posting here more, and I intend to post tutorials on the digital stuff, if anyone's interested.. and I'd love feedback.
