First Steps by freyalise First Steps by freyalise
My first attempt at a real-world manipulation, where the Eleventh Doctor's companion, Amy Pond, takes her first steps into a larger universe.

Amy and the TARDIS come from an extremely crappy picture of me taken at Dragon*Con 2009; stock photos by Resurgere; texture by buzillo_stock.

Mostly I spent a REALLY LONG TIME painstakingly cutting the TARDIS out of this photo:

After that I just spent a little while going through stock photos until I found some I liked (the background is actually two photos--of the same view but from slightly different angles, I think--blended together), tried my best to slap a planet up in the sky, and then threw a grungy texture on top of everything to try and disguise the fact that the original photo was such bad quality. Not very complicated. :D

Eh, I find something about clicking randomly on a photo with the magic wand tool, hitting "delete", and watching a bunch of pixels disappear to be weirdly soothing. :D

I have indeed. Time to resume repeatedly reminding myself that I actually LIKE Ten and Rose.

I like them, but their batshit shipper fans usually make me despise them. (And I ship Nine and Rose a hella lot more than Ten and Rose. :D)

And yep, of course I have! I want to ship them, but in a vaguely sort of platonic way where the Doctor just can't bear to see her in danger or hurt because it reminds him of her death in Victorian England. ALL DAT ~ANGST.

Nicely blended there, great colours too. Good idea to use the texture

I'm really glad you think so... I'm not entirely hapyy with how the skyscape turned out so I may work on it some more. Then again it seems to complement the fact that the TARDIS photo was pretty blurry.

Hahaha! That's awesome! All that's missing is...me as the Eleventh Doctor. :(

Seriously, though, it came out really good. Also kinda funny how the skyscape looks like the Sci-Fi Channel logo. Or, excuse me, the SyFy Channel logo. Ugh.

Just you wait until my head isn't imploding, I found a picture of the two of us in the background of a Mercy Hartigan shot that I'm going to turn into a Livejournal icon. :D The internet, I have been scouring it!

I'm glad you think it turned out well! My hopes weren't very high, considering the quality of the original photo. And crap, that planet DOES look like the Siffy logo. /commits seppuku

Waha you did it!! Good job at trying to incorporate the fuzziness of the original picture in.
