Superb, imaginative image. You don't say which bits (if any) are your original photograph but it's an excellent piece of manipulation.
cheers, Paul

Hi Ryan like your style of work. This looks like it could be an album (do you remember those) cover.

Cheers Julie

If there was a little darkening of the light on the elephant itself i think this would have blown my mind. When i saw it from the small gallery view i thought "Oh my god this looks amazing".

The light not being altered to fit in with the darkness present (or not so!) gives the game away a bit too much though.

Still, its a great showing of manipulation skills.

Thanks for the great feedback guys. I have been thinking about this image for a few days and finally put cursor to screen this afternoon. I'm going to create a few more of these images as I love the surreal effects. This image was inspired by Dali Smile

Deez you was right about the lighting. I went back to the image with the dodge and burn tools and what a difference these make. Please check the altered version here.

Hi Ryan, just come across your portfolio, its superb and I love these animal/root images they are outstanding. This one is my fav, his/her texture somehow suits the pic and blends together to make it look almost believable. Keep them coming Smile
