This is a picture of the Olympic fireworks that I took on my TV screen ... that little dark opening in the center was the perfect place for bats ... and bats are great Halloween characters. The process here was simple ... I used the selection brush and magic extracter to single out the bats, then placed them in the pictures ... creepy, creepy ... :)
This is a mask that I saw at a sidewalk sale ... isn't she cool? I first used the selection brush on the background, darkened with PSE brightness/Contrast, then air brushed in some gray to mute distractions. I then used the selection brush on the hat and scarf and used a fill color and then the mask to put it where I wanted it. (her hat was blue and the scarf was yellow). I used the selection brush again then turned her green eye orange. Finally I used PSE light effects filter to finish her off. Gruesome, right?
This is Izzi. Izzi is not orange ...
But, her pumpkin is :)
Izzi says "Happy Halloween!"
