Too Late for Her by WDWParksGal Too Late for Her by WDWParksGal
Sadly, she learned too late to truly live.

For the Samhain Contest held by xgnyc ~ digital/photomanipulation entry (I wrote the epitaph, too, so it is sort of a combination entry, digital and literature.


The epitaph reads:
Here I Lie Beneath this Stone.
My Body is Still, My Spirit Alone.
When I did Live, My Heart was Ice Cold;
Days Filled with Frustration, Annoyance so Bold.
Not a Chance did I Take to Love and Adore,
At Death it's too Late,
True Life Comes Before.


My own stock and landscape picture.

The bronze planet system blends in a haunting way with the autumn colors. I also like the ghost effect of lightening some areas and darkening others with partial opacity; it reminds me of the Casper movie I recently watched! :iconitisamystery: Personally, I think the hair is a bit too opaque, though. BTW, does ~LadyButterfly-x have a tutorial on those effects? I didn't see anything along those lines in her gallery.

I don't think ~LadyButterfly-x has a tutorial. I read some journals at *redheadstock who makes loads of brushes and got the idea how to alter brushes. That ghost brush is run through filters and effects and I not only altered the opacity, I used the "negative" effect on it, which is how the hair got to look that way. I can probably use an eraser brush (soft-edged) at around 20% opacity to get the hair less opaque.

Is the "Casper" movie the older one? I've seen it many times. I really like that movie. I watched the "Casper" cartoon when I was young.

[link] (I don't know why so many of the pictures are black and white, since it was a color movie. :shrug:)

Yes, that is the film. I have the video and still have a video player so I can watch it. That is weird that the pictures are in Black and White when it certainly was a full-color film :confused:
