Guardian of the Underworld

Beginning with a great photo taken by my cousin in AK, I created this image almost entirely using the History pallete and the History brush in Photoshop. I’ll admit that hitherto I have only glanced at this tool, mostly because of ignorance and thus, an irrational fear. Happily, while reading up on digital illustration techniques my curiosity was piqued and I decided to put my toe into the water of discovery. I’m pretty happy with this first foray and (hoorah) I have a new tool in my arsenal.

If anyone has any techniques or examples that make specific use of the History brush, please share with the class.

    That is even more scary then the original 🙂 I need to film the birds we have up here. The ravens are giant.
