A stairs duo

This is a piece that I did for fun. I used two different models from Marcus Ranum, (White Witch S 1 and S10), with my own stairs image from Leeds castle.


Changed the white robes to red with selective saturation (+100) and lightness (-50). Layered both models into the image, then added in extra illumination and played around with dodge and burn to skin and clothing.


Next I added in another creamy/white plain layer, reduced opacity right down and deleted most of it to leave the faint wisps/mist element.


Next I used a coloured pencil filter very low (opacity 2, detail 100), for a slightly drawn effect. Then I added in the marvellous cracked texture from Charlie Taylor ( I seem unable to do a photo manip. without it!), and then just tidied up a little bit and that's that.
