Ok, so I have been trying many experimental things in Photoshop, and I think I nailed one of them. I decided to mess around with some brushes I haven't used before, and ended up really rolling with it. Its a bit of a strange picture, and almost spooky. I just decided to name them the Spook series. This is the second and best one of the three I have made so far and will definitely make more. I really used the clone tool a lot in making the background and the fireplace. I got stock textures to use along with the clone tool. I also used a lot of dodging and burning to create the effect of light coming off of the fireplace. I also used a black and white gradient overlay layer to create the effect of it getting darker in the back of the room. Overall, I think it turned out great, and I want to keep doing more.
