So, there are a ton of amazing premade backgrounds available for free, and some for sale, on deviantart. I found a few that are inspiring, and have decided to take that inspiration and try to challenge myself to create my own manipulations based on theirs. None of my photomanipulations may be used as premade backgrounds. These are final pieces of art, and these final pieces are mine!
The original image that inspired me can be seen [+here]. The stock used can be located [+here] and [+here] – as always, the final editing was done in LR. I am happy with the end result, but still not 100% satisfied with it… I guess that means that I need to create another image! ^_^ I do love the dark feeling of the forest, though.
