Photoshop Tutorial: Create a Creepy Dark Gargoyle Road



They say it is dangerous to walk Gargoyle Road when the moon is full; that if the Gargoyle lamps glow red then danger is near. They say the Gargoyles can sense the hunger for blood and it is that prescience that turns the lamps red. They don't say who is hungry. Beware!

Thank you to Elandria at Dreamers of Avalon (see SBS for permission) and to lindowyn-stock. The balance of images are my own. See SBS. Step 17 is animated gif.
