Leprechaun's Lair - created by pearlie


Leprechauns Lair
Favs: 0SBS: n/aHi-resRank: 6/7Score: 62.8% (0)8438 views

Ah, Leprechauns - a type of male fairy and a class of faerie folk that live near Fairy Rings, which are ancient Celtic earthworks. According to Irish mythology, these wee folk were once mighty warriors. An evil magician and his army conquered Ireland in a battle and banished them to live underground. Some say these dwarf-like creatures live inside giant caves or hollows of trees, with a door that can only be opened by a magic word.

Years later, they emerged from the depths of the earth and have come to be known as Leprechauns, a Gaelic word for shoemaker, which makes sense, because the occupation of a Leprechaun is a shoemaker to the fairies - fairies dance a lot and need good strong shoes.

Other than making shoes, leprechauns spend their entire lives collecting and hoarding gold coins. These coins are kept in large, cast iron pots. No human knows where they're kept, but some people say a Leprechaun’s pot of gold can be found at the end of a rainbow. Beware! Leprechauns will do anything to protect their pot of gold from being stolen - they are full of trickery and pranks, and often try to move their gold so that it is no longer at the end of the rainbow and no one will be able to find it.

I like, is well done, but I just think that the brightness of the lamp should be better worked, because it seems to be "no life" in the light that emanates.

author says:

Thank you for your observation, Daniela. At this point, there is a yellow layer behind and one in front of the lantern (not at full opacity, tho), plus a very small lens flare in front in the center. Do you have any suggestions? I didn't cut the lantern glass, wonder if that would help if opacity is lowered there.

I would not give a hint that I would not do in my job!
Thus, if it were mine, I would light the brightness of the lamp.

A new layer above the image, blend in Color. With a soft brush in yellow or orange (test both to see which looks better) I would click only once.
After that, a new layer, blend in Overlay (can get good at Soft Light or Color Dodge) and paint the same way I did before.

Well, once I played with it in this work here: http://www.pxleyes.com/photoshop-picture/4f70ee202a5e9/A-Light-In-Darkness.html

I'm no authority on the subject, I'm just giving you recommendations for things I would do if the job was mine.

Good luck author!

author says:

Your lantern is beautiful, thank you! Back to see what I can do.
EDIT: Made some adjustments, this looks more 'alive' to me, thank you!

Yes now it is better, but maybe a light from out could improve the scene, it seems to flat. IMO

author says:

I was thinking of a lair as secluded, deep in the woods and therefore kind of dark, but I went ahead and brought in some light via the rainbow. Thank you for your comment,Roberto.
