custom work

Quite a long time ago I got a request for my Hungry Policemen image using deer. It was for a doughnut company to use as imagery for their business. I got the piece done, but I never heard back from them. Oh goes on! I figured I should at least share it here though.

Rather than buy two or three more packs of deer (they're like $12 a pack), I decided to do a composite. This was actually the first and only time I've ever done a composite with my miniatures! At least I know now that I can do it.

one of the raw images before any editing

final composite. I combined 4 images to get the doughnut full of deer.

I get a little crazy with all those strobes flashing in my eyes. 

I'm glad that I did this little piece, even though it never got used. It was good practice with Photoshop, and I got to eat a doughnut without feeling too guilty. Score! I really enjoy doing custom work. I actually have one that I need to get done now...perhaps this weekend.  

On a totally unrelated note, I watched Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas for the first time tonight. I am not a big fan, simply because I didn't see much of a point to it. I also rather enjoy the safe little bubble that I live in, and all the drugs in the movie really creeped me out. I'm not at all surprised that it flopped when it came out. 

Ok that's all...have a great night, everyone!

you did a great job even though i have no idea what composite is but i just love the little dear with the donut...kinda like little ants but not gross at all.

Thanks, Veronika! I'm so glad I'm not the only one that didn't like that movie. Apparently it's a "cult classic" so I felt like I was supposed to like it. ha!
