Project Assigned Task: Using 5 original photographs, create a montage of anything you want as long as there is a theme and it's interesting.
Used my own stock photography of my birds. Brushes are also from DeviantArt.
Sidenote: These are just 5 of my 8 parrots, and I randomly chose which ones to put in but I knew I had to use Pixie (the water elemental) because she's so massive compared to the others... as Blue&Gold Macaws tend to be.
I had fun with this, even though the majority of it I just made up as I went along. It's tough to find tutorials that cover how to convert a bird into a random element..... except for maybe the Fire one. We did something similar to that in class, so I just modified it until I was pleased.
