This is my final for Image Manipulation, and I'm turning it in later today. Looks like a Christmas card, doesn't it?
The only real-life photos I used were the dogs and the house, and separating them from their backgrounds was and never will be a fun process.
The road was... ugh... took me two hours to do and even now isn't perfect.
It's supposed to look slightly cartoonish while keeping a realistic factor. That's why some of the trees may appear flat, and that's because they aren't supposed to stand out.
Despite it being Christmas, it had to have a story in it as per requirement. The little girl in the top left is depressed because her dogs are dead, and she can't enjoy Christmas with them.
What do you think?
