Software: Adobe Photoshop 5.1
Tutorial: Practical Photoshop
Photoshop is cool in that it makes difficult looking things easy, but sometimes it is the easy things that are difficult (or at least frustrating to me). Case in point, make a car look like it is made of flames – looks tricky, but in fact was made up a good number of fairly easy steps. Try to get the “road” from the city to car and make it look realistic… it took five attempts (and I am still not 100% happy with it – but I also have to be realistic about these things).
In the end I am rather happy with this image.
