“Those that ride on chariots, and those that have no chariots, those that are mounted, and those that are not mounted, all those, after they have been slain, vultures and strong-winged hawks shall devour!” -Atharva Veda
This was done as a photo manipulation exercise. I wanted to see how fast I could gather the images and finish the piece to a reasonable quality. The time was roughly 5-6 hours using 4-5 stock photos and 2 of my own.
The original image was done at 11,000 × 5,500.
I used Topaz re-mask to pull all the elements from their original source. I placed and color balanced the elements in Photoshop, then finished in topaz adjust to bring it all together.
Will list out the individual stock source over the next few days.
