We Are Never Safe by HZLRBCC We Are Never Safe by HZLRBCC

Please view in full view!

So this is my first ever huge photomanipulation! :o
Therefore I'm not being too hopeful with it.. and I apologize for the masses of mistakes that are on here!

Anyway on to explaining it.. I had the idea of some kind of air polluting and flooding apocalypse through maybe global warming.. I know it's a weird vision but I didn't want to do aliens or fire or destruction.. and whilst talking about air pollution I visioned people being turned to stone from this pollution. This being the post apocalyptic scene summing up pretty much what I have just explained. It took so many hours to complete this over a couple of days (I had a lot of free time on my hands) and many layers later this happened! haha.
Now the quote I know comes from somewhere, but I can't remember where from it was just stuck in my head if you could enlighten me that would be great :) *edit* The four leaf clover is there to symbolize the luck which as the quote says - is ONLY luck.

The only thing that needs crediting here is the use of
*redheadstock 's Spanish moss brushes which are great (you should check them out >)
Also the bubble brush which I have had in my downloads for a while now and can't remember who I need to put credit towards if anyone knows please tell me so I can credit the maker.

The rest of the images used in this photomanipulation were taken by myself over the years (being an avid photographer I managed to rummage through all my photographs for the parts I needed to create this)

Photoshop also became my best and worst friend whilst creating this.. I won't go into it but at times it was good and at times it would not cooperate with me as I'm still getting to grips with all the tools on there.

Anyway if you managed to read through all that I do congratulate you as it's 3am here and I ramble when I'm tired.

thanks, yours is great too :)
This is the best one I've seen so far! I love how it's got the quote, and how you managed to incorporate the stock photo! All in all, out of what I've seen so far, this one should totally win.

Thankyou very much I'm glad you like it. Yeah I didn't want to focus on anything too specific so it leaves it to be interpreted however one wishes.
