Psyche and Eros at Play

Mr. Whisker's glass collection kit (magnifying glass).
Kits available at the Mischief Circus website.
It's not as easy as it looks! Psyche and Eros may be having a playful time but I'm just so darned obsessive in getting the detail right.
The face has been adjusted and saturated. Then layers were used for the colourful lips, nails and eyeshadow.
And that's not Psyche's hand under the magnifying glass. I cut and cropped another hand to give the illusion of magnification. And the blue clouds are formed from about six different layers and opacities.
Overall though, while it took some time to finish, I'm pleased with the "dream-like" quality it has.
Take a close look at the lower left hand corner of the layout. My dear friend Marie has made me my very own Japanese Kanji character "chop" to identify my layouts. I'm keeping the meaning private for the time being but needless to say, Marie caught my inner self very well!

I've also been trying to master Corel Painter 2015 and here's another take using the same images and re-working them with the watercolour brushes in that program.

Getting back into my Photoshop Digital Collage Art or Photomontage. This is a Triptych; each image is 8"X8". The red bouffants consist of about 10 individual layers. Enjoy but don't copy the artwork without permission.

Rolling in the Deep cover

It may be a spoof, but just to watch Cissy Houston's facial reaction to Aretha is worth the watch!
