Monster Project

Some species just didn't make it

Challenge

To create an eerie composition by seamlessly blending and combining several images.

Solution

A few hours worth of fun doing a monster project for a class assignment. As I was creating this piece, an elaborate backstory emerged. During an apocalyptic moment, the scaly meerkats and the flying stingrays look towards the horizon awaiting their eminent extinction. Using many blending techniques (masks, cloning tools, and color matching) I was able to create a composition of apocalyptic proportions.

The stingray birds were worked on in a separate file entirely, and eventually worked into the final landscape.
