The Escape by AlexanderCasteels The Escape by AlexanderCasteels
Looking at the DeviantART photo manipulation category, I noticed it is completely over-run by these Gothic sluts standing in front of a sea scape looking fucking miserable.

Well, count on Alex Casteels to mix some shit up.

You're welcome.

Also if you are interested in a tutorial for this, let me know in a comment and I will gladly ignore it.

All stock that's used is from DA so start using the search feature. All other stuff painted.

*edit: Since I was asked very kindly I will post some link to the stock used:

sea: [link]
rock island: [link]
building: [link]

"Just because the artist felt the need to slam other artists in his description and that he used the word *gasp* sluts seems to be the main reason people are making a fuss about how great that is without stopping to look at the quality of the piece." by :icon*Starlightie: was a true argument.

Nothing wrong to say about your work...just that it looks 3d, "natural", and combined with paintings too which is kinda freaky, not in a wrong way, neither a great one.. However, some of the people that edit "gothic sluts" (and sometimes they might not even be gothic) do have feelings and DO REPRESENT something (ok but I have to say that those that frequently make the same thing, with the same colors and no new concept just a simple edited picture with the girl on a forest with or without fireflies or some light just to update their dA gallery can be really annoying sometimes..) and do it with love and EXPRESS themselves not just to be known and ignorant because you may be a great manipulator but if you are a horrible person, you arent an artist. But as I see, you dont search to be an artist but yes a paid and popular man so this wont hurt your feelings anyways.
However, sites like deviant Art are NOT for trolling if that was what you tried to do. And letīs not talk that the stock providers had to ask you to CREDIT THEIR OWN PICTURES! Is not so "cool" being rude.
