Silly Little Bears

By cattyal  
I told them not to open the suitcase - but would they listen? nope - and now it's every bear for himself.......


The idea was ok - the implementation of the idea was something else altogether. This isn't quite as hoped but given the pratting about that was involved it's going to be shown!

The stuff of nightmares. I'd guess Stephen Kings' "It" doesn't phase you at all....

Thanks everyone - I'm not sure how I wanted it to turn out but I didn't get it quite as hoped. Mind you I wanted the bears standing but they wouldn't stand up and then I had to change the camera angle slightly when I did the pic of the bears and it wasn't quite right.

I think the texture maybe too dark and heavy and I should have just used one light to give more shadows but then that would have made it harder to blend the two images together.

It's always so much easier when sitting on the bus figuring it all out Smile

As for 'It' - actually I've never seen it but having just had a look at a few clips I doubt very much it would bother me Smile

Not many things I watch make me turn cold, but "It" is one that does.....

OOOER !!!.....scary or what ??.....& those poor 'ickle Teddy Bears cowering in fear....time for the RSPCTB to be called in ??

Manic shot !!...but beautifully created & works very well !!!!.............Grin

My only thought was that perhaps the two bears are too 'remote' from the 'danger' ??????.....so I've done a mod. to make
them more 'involved' with their impending doom........though I couldn't think of how to make them 'quake' in their fear ??............Smile

Thanks again everyone and thank you Keith for your mod - much better than my effort!

I think maybe different lighting would be good to give more shadows although then of course I'd have to rethink the shooting method so that any work done afterwards didn't mess all the shadows up. A bit more thought is required I think!

I had wanted the bears standing and looking up but realised that they weren't going to stand and their heads only turn from side to side. Maybe the next bear I make will have a ball jointed neck instead Smile

The bears are fully recovered from their ordeal and are back in their usual position at the top of the stairs with the skull and gas-mask Smile
