Here’s a very quick walk through on how I processed this image. Click here

The first step was to find a suitable image for the background. I found this one on Deviantart. I used the refined edge tool to cut the model out and placed her onto the new background.

Then I added blood to the sword and her dress, added some shadows matched the colours and finally sharpen parts of the image.

Here’s a quick before and after with a brief description on how it was created. The original was taken a couple of weeks ago on a family holiday.

New sky added, Hue and Saturation to help blend in the sky, 2 textures at 100% softlight, Cross processing (color Efex Pro), CS6 Tilt & Shift and some final colour changes using Curves.

The original image was taken in natural light at our local woods which was very dark resulting in shooting at f2.8 and iso 1600. For the processing I lightened the models body, applied Nik Software Bleach Bypass, Photoshops new Iris Blur in CS6, added a texture with blending mode Linear Burn at 100% and finally applied Nik Software Tonal Contrast at 60%.

This image was inspired by Stephen King Dark Tower novels which I am currently on book 5.
