Hello there, good news, I'm alive and kicking again. I hope this will continue as I experiment with new Ps stuff, brainstorm new ideas plus enjoying the new Nikon line, the D7000 camera which I used for this image.
Goddess of Machina is not that extreme in a sense but somehow it challenged me on how to make a "simple" portrait into an out-of-this-world by combining my photography and steam punk theme that led to the creation of the mosquito-humming bird-bee-firefly flying metal creature (which I meticulously created from scratch). And of course, thanks to my model Dior who portrayed a Goddess like aura in posing my strobist shot. The two had a great story to tell and I guess that leaves you hanging there what's the real score bout their mysterious stares. hehe. Well, hopefully you like this one. I want to thank Cameraderie photogroup of Riyadh for the chance to shoot Dior.

A Photography Monstrosity (SAY CHEESE special):"Strike Anywhere" a digital painting

Concept and Digital Painting by George Pontino Jr (All Rights Reserved)
Hello, it's been a while since my last photoshop manipulation. Well, I decided that I need to hybernate since, first and foremost, I need a fresh project that would provide me with newfound inspiration and imagination. And that is SAY CHEESE! which is a monthly digital painting endeavor featuring photographers in various "viral" situations. Herewith is "Strike Anywhere." Done mainly in Photoshop CS3, this digital painting is actually around for sometime around 2008 but I didn't finish it along those times when I got sick (I had operation) and of course, around 2009 I gave life to Pixelrocket, this blog, which are mainly Photoshop Manipulations based from my photos. But this time, forgive me to give you a once in a month digital paint to give a twist on my blog but I'll stay true to its mission of sharing my Photomanips. Hopefully, it works! :) Enjoy the imagination I poured on this image and hope you'll tweet and facebook this to your friends. Thanks ;)
