A girl, a frog, a castle, two landscapes and so on ...

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, back in 2011 I took some pictures (1) and combined them into an artwork (2). I had to use PS (I think it was CS5 if I remember correctly). 

The whole thing is related to the fairy tale ›Der Froschkönig‹ written by the Brother’s Grimm.

 

Well, a few days ago I picked the same pictures (1) and created a ›Remake‹ just for fun. This time I used AffinityPhoto 1.5.2. and made the artwork completely new. 

Instead of the perfume bottle I decided to add the boat, the paddle and water lilies. (3) 

 

The result is (4). 

 

The file is up to 300 MB and runs smoothly on my 6 year old iMac.

Thanks Bodo :) 

 

Edit: btw of course the frog has to be bigger than normal, he is king :-) (Maybe I should add a crown, hmm ...)

I like the clouds better in 4; removing the perfume bottle effects allowed an improved sky, IMHO. Also enjoy the detail where the oar tip is slightly in a puddle. Much better lighting effects all around the castle too! All in all, a very pleasing and fun comp!

I thought No 2 was an actual ad. Very nice. I expect to see it on a 48 sheet around town soon.
