Photoshop for the win. I think I make a great vampire. At least now I know I won't look awkward when my skin turns all pale and stuff lol. and strangely, my hair works. w00t.
Photograph is credit of me, I did take it myself. Blood editing thanks to a tutorial on deviantart, even if I did skip the last steps. Three layers all together I. One was the base that had all the skin editing, two was the lips and eyes and blood, and three was the fangs.

random edits

All photos of me are taken by Megan Ochoa.

I cheated. Used Pic-Nik instead of photoshop on the bottom left image. Yeah, took the easy way out. Oh well. "*crown* Captivating" seems to be my trademark logo, and now I'm starting to use "KeyRey." I blame "Johnny-Yong." Anyway, used grain effects and contrast adjustments. Nothing too special here.

Photoshop on the top right. Two layers, not including text. Upped the contrast, darkened the shadows using the burn tool, and highlighted with the dodge tool. More simple stuff. The back layer is a copy of the front, only bigger. Used gaussin blur to make it, well, blurry.

Three layers, two are the same with slight adjustments. Kicked up the light, contrast and levels on the background. Then blurred the top 2/3's and sharpened the bottom. Then desaturated the image a little and adjusted the hue to a slightly blueish color. Used blur to make it look a little misty, then darkened the layer. Used dodge and burn tool on myself for highlights and shadows. The fairy is a lens flare filter.
Oh, and the original forest image for reference: Click Here Please

water color

Well, isn't this exciting? 9 layers, 4 of them being from making the water color effect, the other 5 are text and a crown. 8D

Reflection: to be added later LAWL

Raising Water

Johnny-Yong. You all know who he is.
Water bending.
I used five different stock images, three being water/waves, one horse, and of course, John. There is, of course, a total of five layers. The rising water was originally black and white when I downloaded it, and since it's partially the focus of the image, I couldn't have it be some random color and not fit in properly, so all the color in the other photos had to go.
