The new digital piece is called Her Phantom, and for no better reason, it is a painting of a phantom-like girl drifting through a misty, eerie woods. I paid close attention to the trees' detail for perspective -- it only makes sense, right (where are the photography majors out there)? In the mean time, I had issue with adding fog to the background using my usual methods; however, when I was messing with the light curves, I somehow fixed it up to give a foggy effect without much further effort. I consider that a win for my fumbling around with Photoshop.
There's something to be said for the ground, though. The fog effect underneath the phantom had a dual purpose: what is on the ground, and what force is acting on it? It could be seen as fog, but my intentions were, actually, that the phantom's presence was shifting the sand and dust that coated the floor of this forest. On that note, we could say that the opacity of the phantom in light of that of the trees, coupled with the unidentified pressure the phantom places on the ground beneath her, makes you wonder which is more real. I'm not one for the supernatural, so you decide!
