This entry is the next step in my process of making a scary DVD cover. I have made different versions of the DVD cover, which are based on various images related to horror. First, let’s take a look at those source images:
Now move on to my works:
For the background image of an old wall, I lowered its opacity to 40% and set the Contrast to 100%. This image will stay the same for all versions later.
The moon image is in red so that it can match the theme. In order to get it, I changed the Saturation to add light red to it; then I went to Color Balance to increase the red percentage. Finally, I set the Contrast of it at 100% to make it attractive.
A substitute for the moon is a bloody astronomical clock. It has the same process of editing as the moon. Furthermore, white glow is added to the clock and I used Brush Tool to throw small drops of blood onto its surface.
In the third version, the headless angel is cut from its original image. Red glow covers around the shape to make it look scary. The last image is a small empty tomb with two angels. I took away from its original one by using Eraser Tool. Next, I set it to Black & White mode so that the skull can stand out of it.
