As I mentioned in a previous post, I often go surfing for inspiration. That is the case with this eBook cover.
Daz 3D Contests
Daz 3D has regular contests. I think I’ve entered one or two. Usually, I just stop by to browse through the creations. This time around the theme is hot and cold. Well the theme sent me on a search for photo manipulation tutorials. I came across this cold winter portrait tutorial and thought it rather promising.
I have to say, the work they did on that picture is beautiful. Well, I tried. Lord knows I did. I’m not going to show you my results, but I will say it was akin to a gal’s first makeup job. You know what I mean. The one where you walked into the living room and your parents told you to turn right back around and wash that clown face off. Heck, you’ve probably seen the makeup job on your daughter.

I did manage to use a couple of things from the tutorial… the eye work mainly.
