I cut pieces from the porcelain pumpkin image, added them onto the stone ball. Colored and added shadows to every element.
Added dwarf, added shadows for him, added backround and grass, and colored using a couple of adjustment layers.
Added butterflies, galaxies and light beams brushes.
Added gradients to obtain warm color and light.

I used parts of the source image to reconstruct the two characters based on the initial dolls image presented as source number 1.
I added shadows/highlights using different grey brushes and I colored some parts of the two characters.
I have created the moon and the land out of the top bread in the source image.
Added the sky in the backround, some trees silhouettes on the sides and birds.
In order to get better coloring I added a lot of different gradient adjustment layers, changed the blending mode to color and played with opacities.
Hope you like it! (5 years and 2709 days ago)

I used a great picture of a porcelain little girl and recreated her by using different selections from image source.

For the backround I have used a forest landscape provided so kindly by Colourize Stock on Deviantart. Please visit author for other great images: http://colourize-stock.deviantart.com/

Hope you like it and you won't find it too cheesy! (5 years and 2733 days ago)

Wooden Archangel

I have thought that for this constest any image could be turned into a grunge style. But I didn't think this should be enough, so I decided to actually create some sort of a creature, something original and then make it look totally grunge.
So....I reconstructed over the woman sculpture using selections from a wooden circlet and ball. I used warp tool to get the shapes I wanted.
I created the backround by adding a lot of grunge sources.
Added wings, shadows, some gradient adjustment layers and corrected some spots by using the clone stamp tool.

Lots of credits to:
- "CSnyder" on deviantart for some really cool grunge textures. Visit account at: http://csnyder.deviantart.com/;
- "Fetishfaerie" also on deviantart for some very good glass grunge packages, at: http://fetishfaerie-stock.deviantart.com/;
- "Markopolio" on deviantart for some great angel wings. At: http://markopolio-stock.deviantart.com/;
- "Night-fate stock" on deviantart for the best grunge image I've ever seen. Please visit author at: http://night-fate-stock.deviantart.com/.
- and last but not least, "Spiritsighs" on deviantart for a really good texture brush which I used to render the blood spots on the backround. Main account for other great brushes at: http://spiritsighs-stock.deviantart.com/.

There are two extra sources used, which, even if they are not too visible...I assure you that they are on the image:

1.. http://fetishfaerie-stock.deviantart.com/art/Frost-Pack-III-33357187 - Frost Texture

2. http://fetishfaerie-stock.deviantart.com/art/Frost-Pack-V-47098236 - Glass Grunge Texture

The minute I saw this image I just thought the chair would be perfect for reading...so I decided to create a magic atmosphere filled with books and vintage items!
I added girl and each item from different PNG files to create room atmosphere.
Added shadows individually for each item, colored overall and then added overall shadows.
Added backround texture, played with adjustment layers.
