It is late to begin this...we know it...
SO, THE HELL WITH IT...PLAY A SONG AND THEY WILL BE HAPPY...
NOW, THAT JUST IS NOT THE WAY TO TREAT GUESTS...
GUESTS SMESTS...I WANNA SLEEP
NOW BOTH OF YOU - SETTLE DOWN OR THIS IS GOING TO TAKE TWICE AS LONG!

Anyway...so PIA is going to see Taylor tomorrow
TONIGHT DUMMY
WELL, YES TONIGHT, YOU COULD HAVE BEEN NICER...
LOOK, WE TYPE THIS THE NIGHT BEFORE...EASY MISTAKE
NOT IF YOU HAD BRAINS...

To continue, she is going to the Meet & Greet
and wanted to bring him a picture of some of his fans


So we grabbed a couple of pictures and worked at the MAC
letting Photo Shop do it's thing...

Thought we would share the journey...

[couchdivider.gif]

Here are the four photos we began with. We had to change the dpi on the main shot,
but were able to keep focus...
(YOU CAN CLICK ON ANY PICTURE TO ENLARGE)


The Group Shot From WorkPlay
Birmingham, AL March 10, 2007
From left:
Bodacious Hootchie (Pia), Hottie Bond, Snarky Hootchie (Maryfly),
Tez, Sexy Hootchie (Anndi), and Randy Hootchie (Turn)

Tez, third from right, though a doll is not part of the little group we have called
"Hootchies & The Hotties"...
when composing the final product, she will be replaced...
Missing were the following three:


Rocker Hootchie (Busy) could not make the trip...


Sugarbaby Hootchie (Dixie) is second from right and was caring for Mom


Hottie Travis was resting and did not make it...

[couchdivider.gif]

SO WE BEGAN...


OK, so...first we cropped Busy from her picture.
Then we flopped her to fit where we wanted to place her.

[couchdivider.gif]


Then from the main photo we pulled out Tez and Anndi

[couchdivider.gif]


We silhouetted Anndi to put her back in.
We needed her to be able to be placed on top of Busy after she was placed.

[couchdivider.gif]


So, here is where we are at this point...messy...

[couchdivider.gif]


Busy slides in where Tez was; Anndi goes in right on top of her
exactly where she was before...

[couchdivider.gif]


We crop Dixie...notice her son Matt's sleeve made this interesting...

[couchdivider.gif]


We were going to place Dixie between Mary and I, so Mary gets silhouetted

[couchdivider.gif]


Had to silo me at this point

[couchdivider.gif]


We also did a silo on Pia, but in the end it was not necessary

[couchdivider.gif]


So, now we have Mary and I separated and Dixie "sort of" in place

[couchdivider.gif]


Took Travis, silhouetted him and flopped him too

[couchdivider.gif]


Well...you have to have a title






Here is the finished product...
Completed start to finish in 4 hours...

Not happy with some parts, like we just noticed Travis is not covering all of Busy,
and we did not extend her body far enough...ARG
but the concert is tonight...soooooooooo

  3. the108 Says:
  4. Good heaven's! You share my addiction!

     
  5. Bowie! Sigh...awesome.

    Yikes! Photoshopping is difficult stuff. I'm not creative enough to do that graphically. I've done some manual cropping when I scrapbook, but it's difficult to keep my hand steady doing it digitally. I tried doing a bit of it when I was producing a digital scrapbook back in May, but then I settled with the standard straight cutting.

    Kudos to you, Bond. Pretty good job!

     
  6. Anndi Says:

  28. Bond Says:
  29. JULIE: LOL...ummmm maybe...yeah...I think that is a positive

    AISBY: It takes a while to get used to it, but once you learn it (I am self-taught) it can do so many wonderful things

    DOC: You are making me blush
