So, uh, this is why I don't photomanipulate at 5 in the morning all the time. So I started by painting over
's face. I feel a bit guilty when I do that even though I know stock artists put their face up on the internet FOR people like me to paint over. That was earlier in the evening, when I was still sane. Then I grabbed a background from
when I decided to keep going. I wanted to have her on water, but I knew that would take far too long, so I stuck her in a forest. Besides, I'd already downloaded the background earlier.
Put them together, overlay layers, the mist was done with (shudder) the smudge tool... I was getting so tired by then.
And then I stared at it for a while, wondering what to name it. Since, after all, I had just made a typical cheesy photomanipulation.
I stared at it.
And then I thought.
LOL LOST HIT POINTS.
So I added a hit point bar and went to bed.
Not based on any game, just me being amused. I considered making the rest of the 'dead' screenshot, you know. I could've left the entire forest picture, and then made a chat pane and everything and had her pleading for someone to REZPLZ or use a Phoenix Down or cast Life or whatever. But by that time I was dead. Maybe next time.
And that's why I don't photomanipulate. It's too easy to make fun of it and ruin a perfectly good picture.
Not based on any MMORPG characters, living or dead. ^_^
Credits, once again, go to
for the girl, and
for the forest.
