Autumn Souls

by Bill Funk

<span class="small">The faces are from various photos and were blended in with layer blend effects in Photoshop so that the textures of the leaves look like they&#39;re following the contours of the faces. Basic picture is a forest floor in autumn.</span>

    Very nice indeed, reminds me a lot Derek Lea's work, but a bit more sinister somehow. 5 Stars!

    you definitely should post it. Layer blending gives some awesome results and it's cool to experiment with different textures. Organic material? Cool.

    Thanks Paola-hey, 40 layers is nothing to sneeze at! What I also do is combine several layers with distinct parts that don't overlap. This way I can still work on individual objects without messing up anythiong else, and the number of layers isn&#39

    Wow Bill!! Alot of hard work and well worth it. You have much more patience than I do. I think the most layers I have reached is a bit over 40 and that drove me mad lol:) Awesome job!! Love all the expression in the faces.

    I'm happy you liked this one Drew. If I had to chose one of my images to put on my headstone, it would be Autumn Souls. Hands down!

    Many thanks Sue, and Ice Girl thanks you too. Ice Girl was published in issue 24 (July) of PS Creative magazine... if you remember where you saw Autumn Souls, let me know so I can sue 'em! BB

    I think this is the image I spent the most time on of them all so happy to get your positive feedback Richard. And I hope we get a splendid, colorful autumn-we're still waiting for summer to happen in Belgium!

    Thanks for commenting Neil. When I finished this I counted 58 faces, but I might be wrong... think I had about 70 layers going before I merged them in groups to make things less confusing. There are definitely ones with more personality than others. Ch

    This is a really cool image. I especially like the dark green upside down leaf, and the one with the tongue sticking out!

    Susi, that SO doesn't surprise me you've done a pumpkin picture... I guess it's still awaiting approval and I can't wait to see it. Many thanks for liking Autumn Souls!
