Shrinking Violet

Shrinking Violet
This photomanipulation of the retroboot version of Shrinking Violet was the first manip I made in quite a bit of time.
If you are new to my work you’ll come to discover that Shrinking Violet is one of my favorite character from the Legion of Superheroes to photoshop. Most of her costumes have geat visual appeal, I’m especially fond of the Cockrum costumes. So the time had come for me to photomanipulate again and who better for a new image than the newest version of Violet?

In the grand scheme of things this isn’t my best effort BUT I still feel pretty good about it as it had been so long since I created a photomanip. I think her hair came out good and the (very few) changes I made to the models face work well too. Her gloves are decent and I am happy with her belt. The black sections of her costume came out as intended. The coloured areas of her dress don’t look good. The folds are flat and they often run the wrong direction. Also, due to what the model was wearing in the original image, her entire upper torso looks really messed up.

This is one of my more recent manips. I had to make some drastic changes to the model to make her resemble Dawnstar. I don’t think I quite achieved my goal on that front.
When I first finished this image I really liked it, but now I see more and more flaws in it. Not a piece I am happy with at all anymore.
