Tribute to all those stories that can take you away from your daily life and bring the spark of magic and adventure to your world :love:


Oh those darn reflections! I think they're still off (especially the candles), but meh. I felt so inspred by the good reception and the wonderful critique on On Fire that I wanted to try some more lighting again - I hope you like it! And if you find anything I could improve on, please tell me - you've all been very, very helpful last time! Thank you!

If you want me to take a look at something you've created, just send me a note - I probably won't be fast with it, but I'm always happy to help

EDIT: I fixed the reflections, you can still find the old version in my scraps for comparison --> [link]

PE Photomanip: Using Masks InterviewsUsing Masks Interviews
Good afternoon / morning, everyone! :wave:
I've got some interviews about using masks in your photomanipulations today!

Basically, masks are a way of non-destructively erasing parts of your work. Non-destructively means that it doesn't "destroy" your base image - everything you don't erase is kept and it's simple to fix it if you make a mistake. Whereas if you just deleted the parts of an image you don't want, that would be lost and it would be complicated to get those parts back in many instances. Read on for more info! :thumbsup:
