Finished?

"Dorthea Lovejoy" My pronto plates came in the mail this week, so I'm hoping to start curving the image and printing this one by Tuesday.

the edges of her arms are very feathered making her seem pasted. try using a decent size brush with hardness of about 67 on the mask of her layer.

It probably won't matter after they are lithographed, but if I don't litho her, or it shows up I'll definitely try that.

I like this image more than the studio shot. I think having simple settings for the "family" helps the mood of your project more than the changing the background colors. And to what Keegan said, instead of photoshoping them into locations check out the alien bees and shoot on location.

Shooting them on location would make the photo manipulations much more difficult, and I highly doubt that the weather will cooperate for much longer. I like the montage process and the awkward feeling it creates. I'm also not a huge fan of the Alien Bees, I like the softboxes in the studio.
