With all the snow we had yesterday, 14 inches where I live, I should have titled this the Snowmaker! I wanted a dark and magical image. I needed a dark magician character so I created him using Adobe’s 3D software, Fuse. I elongated the original jacket to a cape since the Fuse software has very limited clothing or at least clothing I like to have my characters dressed in (Steampunk or Victorian). The Jackdaws are from Frank at DeviantArt. The background is an undisclosed abandoned poor farm I photographed with my Fuji XT-1 on New Years day. It is one of my favorite locations. Texture is from Shadowhouse Creations. Clouds, rain and lightening are Photoshop brushes I use. The fog is actually from a photograph I took of clouds, again photographed with my Fuji X-T1. The alchemy of mood was created using various filters in Photoshop from Topaz, MacPhun, and Nik.
I hope everyone on the East Coast is safe, sound and slowly digging their way out of the blizzard. It was a massive storm.
