He Lurks There

He Lurks There

THE PHOTO:
A Chinese troll.

The photo was taken at the Hamilton Gardens which features themed gardens from around the world. This shot was taken at the Chinese showcase.

POST PROCESSING:
About 20 adjustment layers, filters, dodging, burning, blurring, etc went into this composition. I wanted it to look slightly menacing and as if you were looking at it at dusk. It’s easy to go too far with processing sometimes…

Not that I want to get into the habit of doing this, but here’s the original photo:
He Lurks There - Pre processing

The eyes are a separate image bought in (search google for ‘evil eyes’).

OTHER:
The latest design re-incarnation is sort-of up and running here at seriocomic.com – so if you are reading this in your feed-reader, then why not pop over and have a look. I would be most interested in what you don’t like about the design. As with all my re-designs, they are a work in progress.
