  3. Hi Vik
    Thanks !! great tips !!
    The idea of converting the deserted island into the snowy land in Photoshop is really unique and praiseworthy.

    Thanks again

    Some really nice photo-compositing tips here! I like the concept and think it came together nicely but I would have maybe added some more trees, like you are overlooking a forest or a valley and can see the castle in the distance. I think the gnome and the duck and the bear are somewhat random, maybe putting some real animals there instead like a deer or a polar bear?

    Also, I would be curious to see how it would look to continue the footsteps towards the viewer so they have a clear point of origin. It kind of looks like they just dropped down and started walking as opposed to having some footsteps in the foreground which could help to lead the viewers eye by giving them more of a trail to follow. Nice tut overall, that’s just my two cents!

      Thanks for the feedback Eric, your comments are always really insightful. I agree about all the points you mentioned, although I do still love the outcome here.

        Thanks Tom! Yes I do still think that the final outcome is nice, and I really like the creativity and imaginative use of a desert scene to create a winter scene. Bonus points!
