This is my entry for :iconmjranum-stock: 's stock contest, detailed here: [link]

I've never actually used stock like this before. It was kind of hard to figure out what to do, 'cause instead of drawing whatever figure in whatever pose I wanted, I had to figure out how to use what figures were available. I finally settled on a fairy type scene, 'cause, well, floating people (I'm quite weak on the conceptual side...)! I did change a few of the poses around, moving arms and legs around mostly.

Here's a quick list of the stock I used here:

Holding the glowy ball: [link]
There were actually three fairy pictures used to make the two blue ones in the picture. In one I liked the pose, in the other I liked where the arms were so I put them together in the bottom left corner:

This one you can't really see anymore, it was in the right corner:
And here's where the trees come from. It happened to fit perfectly perspective wise after I widened the arch:

Man, I love your colors (again!) and just the amazing overall feel of this. My brain has pretty much checked out for the day but... it's just so ethereal feeling! It's really great!

when you take a stock photo do you paint on a trasparent layer on the photo or the photo is only a visual reference for paint on a blank layer...

do you understand my question?

excuse me for the horrible english

For this picture, I laid out all of the stock images where I wanted them, moved their legs around in some places, put different arms on one person, then traced over everything loosely on a new transparent layer. After that, I hid the layer the stock images were on, and used them as a visual reference after that. :)
