Before the Fall_Adam and Eve by JennBowers Before the Fall_Adam and Eve by JennBowers
Well, I finally decided that this was about as done as I was going to get...without ruining it. I lost count at about 268 layers of plants, animals, trees, rocks, pieces of parts of stock...you name it, I tried to add it in there. I couldn't have done this without the following stock, so thank you to them!

The cropped version is here : ([link])


Stock:

rml_stock (garden) ([link])
two ladies stock (korean garden) ([link])
Drezdany stock (garden 24) ([link])
Valentine Fov Stock (stock 290 by stream) ([link])
mjranum stock (various five "Eve") ([link])
cybergranny_stock (garden) ([link])
~Lyrra "Adam" ([link])

Great job combining all the stock into one overall composition.

The one thing I notice is it can be clearly seen where you composited certain stock images. The give away is the blurring that occurs on the edges. Try to use the clone stamp tool and some digital painting to bring unity between the different images.

Simply Awesome.. The abundance of resources for Adam and Eve to take.

Time will come that children will be playing with harmless Lions and Snakes.

Holy snapmuffins, batman! :O

I can't believe all this. I usually get frustrated with layering, but everything on here just comes together so perfectly. <333

I can only imagine. :giggle: I always distrusted programs with layers and blending. xD MS Paint has always been my buddy...but then again, Photo manips are a little hard to pull off on there...

I did, but it paid off *lol*...my son --who's almost 9-- looked at the picture and said the same thing :-) His (younger) sisters, of course, were more concerned with the pretty flowers and Eve's hair *hehe*
