Paint over, color balance, level correction...It's hard to describe exactly what I did in Photoshop. I will let the following images tell the story (Fig.08 - 10).
And here's the final image (Fig.11).
Plunderer took me five nights - approximately two hours per night - so that's ten hours in total. Honestly folks, technically speaking this piece is definitely not my strongest piece; I won't lie about that. But I'm very happy with the fact that I found inspiration from Genny and turn edit into a personal work. I also got a good idea how much I can do in a short amount of time, with distractions. That helped me figure out where I need to improve if I want to quickly execute a piece so I can get some training asap.
I hope you like Plunderer, as well as this quick Making Of. I would also like to take this opportunity to give my salute to all the mom's who breastfeed. Moms RULE!
