Part 2 of 3 Cooking of the mermaid is a composite of 11 images, 1 hour shooting and 5 hours of photoshop.
I must say I have learnt a lot doing this and as time consuming as it is, it was really good fun.
All this just for Halloween.
Initially the image was meant to be just a mermaid in a pot, nothing fancy and mid way through the photoshoot, I was clearly not satisfied and wanted to add a human into it. I think it really makes this image a lot "darker and evil" just as I intended.
