    We had some photo manipulations in the community sketchbook thread. However, I thought having its own thread would encourage more of them. They can be fun to put together.

    You can combine multiple photos and use blending, painting, etc. to make them work together. It can be realistic like a matte painting, or a total transformation to make it more painterly.

    Make sure stock images are legal for that purpose. Here are a couple stock sites you can check out.

    If you are wanting to try out the process you can use Photoshop, or similar programs. Here are a couple of free ones:

    Krita
    GIMP - GNU Image Manipulation Program


    My understanding is that Krita now has an Android version as well, but haven't tried it.
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    Not sure if I can track down the various image sources for this. The beam device was a photo of my tv antenna. The sky and other elements were taken from various stock images.

    I like that effect. And the rain and lightning are a nice touch.

    I like the soft look of this. Does it use vector or pen tool?

    I recently discovered Windows 10 includes a neat 3 d Modeling program called Paint 3d with an included library of models. It's pretty advanced and allows you tpaint white models with typical paint tools.
