Winter Magic
December 27, 2011

Little Morgan sat in the snow beneath a slender pine tree and pulled her white wool cape tighter to keep out the winter chill. The last few rays of the sunset were slowly fading behind the trees, and it was starting to snow again. Soon it would be dark, and she still could not remember the way out of the forest.

But Morgan was a brave little girl. Someone would miss her soon and come to find her, or she would find her own way out of the forest. She would not cry.

Then, Morgan heard a tiny laugh. She looked up to see a glowing ball of light floating in front of her. The ball laughed again and floated closer. Morgan held our her hands and the ball sat there. Inside the ball was a little glowing fairy, there to keep Morgan company.

Though the night would be long, cold, and dark, at least Morgan would not have to bear it alone.

I searched for DAYS all over dA for stock because I didn't know what I wanted to do, until I saw a stock photo of the cutest little girl in a cape :D After that, the photomanipulation and the story practically created themselves. =P

Last upload of 2011! :hooray: Happy New Year, all! :D

This is an amazing manipulation.

One little thing that I find wrong with it is that the girl doesn't fully look like she's in the picture. To me she looks like she's been pasted on. I think you need to blend the model more and maybe mess around with the light a bit more.

Other than that great work. :)

Thank you! :D This is one of my old photomanips, so I can see tons of stuff "wrong" with it now, including the girl :lmao: I'll have to revisit this idea and see if I can make everything blend better. Thanks again! :happybounce: :hug:

That would be really cool, but the images I used to make the picture don't belong to me so I can't allow it for commercial use. :( I'm sorry. :saddummy: But I can check the rules of the owners of the stock and see if they'd be OK with their stock used in a book cover. :)
