Mr-Ripley's Profile Picture
Artist | Professional | Digital Art
Noisy fella (Works) by Ehsartem Welcome everybody,
Reading a lot of Japanese comic books when I was young made me wanted to be a comic artist. I didn't graduate from any art institution and practiced my skill by drawing a lot of traditional portraits. Though my main intention here is to improve myself as a digital painter, but I enjoy making photomanipulation too. Above all, the deepest love I have in my life is a movie called The Talented Mr.Ripley , and my great expectation is to remake it as a graphic novel. I hope I can share it with you someday.

Thank everyone for adding my work in favorite

Hi dear friends :wave:

Howdy everyone? Hope you all are doing well.
First of all, I apologize for my late reply on my deviation pages, journal and in the notes. 
A lot of unexpected things happened and affected my life in the latter years. 
I felt like I need a break from everything for some time and be alone with myself finding some peace of mind. That's why I'd been inactive on DA for a few months.
Actually, I didn't go to anywhere. I didn't do anything and tried not to think. I just lay in bed watching many (old) movies every day and let them take me away from reality.

Some day I spent time with classic movies like Gone With the Wind and Sunset Boulevard (Gloria Swanson gave unforgettable performance.)

Some week I watched so many movies based in Stephen King's novels. I really enjoyed most of them especially an underrated one called Riding the Bullet which affected me personally.

Some week I watched Alfred Hitchcock's movies like Rebecca, The Birds, The Man Who Knew Too Much, etc. I like Rear Window most. It's really fun and has brilliant ending.

I watched four Texas Chainsaw Massacre movies within 24 hours. And the original one in 1974 is obviously the best.

Some week I chose sci-fi movies like SunshinePrometheus, Gravity, Interstellar, The Martian and Elysium. I'm really interested in movie about space.

I watched John Carney's musical movies like Once, Begin Again and Sing Street. He is such a brilliant director. 

I also have seen many romantic movies including those ones that were based on Nicholas Sparks' novels like The Longest Ride, Safe Haven, The Last Song, etc. All are impressive.

I watched some Super-hero movies too, but I think I'm too old to enjoy this kind of movie much.

I finally have seen more than 120 movies within the last 2 months. Wow!

And this is my new work that I have made during watching so many horror movies. Hope you like it. :)

Taking Over by Mr-Ripley

By the way, I still have to finish some sculptures and move to a new house within the beginning of 2017. So, I may not have time to sit in front of my com and visit anyone's gallery often. However, I will try not to be inactive on DA too long.

Finally, I'd like to share one of my favorite songs and some wonderful works that I found in galleries of some wonderful friends. Hope you like them too. :heart:

Have a nice day everyone.

Hi dear friends
It's my honor to have a chance to share my tip at Manip Academy here.
First of all, I have to tell you that I'm a lazy self-taught digital artist.
I know how to use only some simple tools in Photoshop old version (CS3).
Besides, English is not my first language.
However, I hope this article will be useful somehow at least for beginners and intermediate artists.

Last year I held KING KONG AND I contest. And I found that some contestants had trouble to put the woman stocks in their works properly, while they seemed have no any problem with gorillas and backgrounds. Why is that?

I noticed that most woman stocks they used were taken picture with brightness in daylight. And they didn't turn down the brightness of the women stock enough when they put them into darker environment like a sunset scene or a jungle. And the black hair of the giant gorillas also emphasize the error. The women ended up being too bright and jumped out of the environment. So, I chose to write about Realistic blending of human models with environments in this article to solve this problem.

Normally, to put a human (or any object) and make them look real and harmonious with a new environment (background),

I have to care about these important facts.

- direction of light

The light on the human body (or any object) and the background should have the same direction. If not, you have to flip either of them.
In case the light on the object doesn't have an obvious direction, add some light and shadow to the object.

- color tone 

You have to adjust color of the object, and make them look similar to the tone of environment. But don't make them look too close because the object will be drowned into the background.

-brightness and contrast

As I said in the beginning that different stocks were taken with different level of brightness. You need to adjust the brightness of them into same level. If there's a special source of light shining on the object, such as a human holding a lamp. That's an exception.  

There are also some other facts to think about as well. Such as... 

-sharpness and blur

-depth and distance

-size of the object and background 

-angle or perspective of the object and background


The object and the background should be related to each other in every aspect.

Besides imagination and creativity, a great photomanipulater should also be able to make a picture that looks like real until people can't tell if it photography or photomanipulation. 

My advice is you can find the best tips or secrets from any photography, and learn these facts of nature from them.



I have made 2 example works using same model in 2 different backgrounds to show you the process. Let's see. :)

The model stock is
Seraphim - Stock Reference 23 by faestock

The backgrounds are
Lady on Rock Example 1bg by Mr-RipleyLady in water bg by Mr-Ripley
The first one is a sunset or sunrise scene where the sun is down and far away in the background.
Any object placed on the foreground is supposed to look almost as dark as a silhouette. 
The second one is underwater scene. I have never tried it before.
But I guess everything under the water is supposed to be in dim cyan tone. 

I put her in these backgrounds
Lady on Rock Example 1 by Mr-RipleyLady in water example1 by Mr-Ripley
Both backgrounds have different direction of light, while there is no obvious direction of light on the model body.
She looks too bright in both backgrounds.

Don't forget the fact that she has to look much more darker than the sky in the sunset scene.
Her color tone need to be adjusted a lot in the water scene as well.

I began to decrease the brightness of the model.
In the sunset scene, I duplicated the model layer. Changed the new layer in multiply mode.
The model will look much darker and intensive automatically.
I also clicked button IMAGE / ADJUSTMENT / BRIGHTNESS AND CONTRAST to make her even darker.

Lady on Rock Example 2b by Mr-Ripley

I adjusted the color of this layer by clicking button IMAGE / ADJUSTMENT and chose COLOR BALANCE

Lady on Rock Example 2a by Mr-Ripley

Now the model looks much darker than the sky.
Lady on Rock Example 2c by Mr-Ripley

 Then I added some light on the body of the model in the same direction of light in the background. I did it by using soft-rounded DODGE tool. I set the exposure level about 50% or less dragging it around her body, and change into 100% for the front part of her body which is supposed to be touched by the sunlight.

But the body parts that touch the ground like her feet and bum should look darker because they are not touched by the sunlight. So, I used big soft-rounded BURN tool instead. 
 Lady on Rock Example 2 by Mr-Ripley

I made a new layer in multiply mode under all the model layers to make her shadow lying on the rock.
With the shadow, I realized that the model still doesn't look dark enough in this environment.
So I duplicated the 2nd layer of the model (which I set in multiply mode). This time I set the opacity at 30% only.
(you may put the new duplicated layer in other mode as well, it's up to propriety of each situation.)
If the model's color looks too less or much more saturated than the environment, then adjust it with HUE/SATURATION tool. 
Lady on Rock Example 3a by Mr-RipleyLady on Rock Example 3 by Mr-Ripley

To add some highlight on her front part and to put outer glow effect, I duplicated the original layer of the model. Placed this layer under the rock layer. Added COLOR OVERLAY effect to this layer. ( chose white color ). Then I moved the image in this layer to the left a little bit, and made it blur. Now the model has some highlight on her front part. I added some soft OUTER GLOW effect to this layer too. (The color which is used in this effect should be the main color you see in the background. ) 
Lady on Rock Example 4 by Mr-Ripley

Finally, I added some light/flare texture on the work. 
Big Lens And Optical Flare Collection by daWIIZ
I placed it above all other layers in this work, changed into SOFT LIGHT mode with opacity 75%.
This light texture really made the atmosphere looks much more charming.
I confess this light texture tends to be necessary in my works nowadays. :love:
Lady on Rock Example 5 by Mr-Ripley

I also put some bokeh texture under the model layers in SCREEN mode. It helps this scene looks more interesting. :) 
Bokeh Texture by photoshop-stock

This is the comparison between BEFORE and AFTER adjustment of the model.
Lady on Rock Example 6 by Mr-RipleyLady on the Rock by Mr-Ripley

Now you can see how much BRIGHTNESS adjustment means to your work.

Don't be afraid that the model's face will look too dark. Better be afraid that your whole work will not look real enough.
If she's in a dark place and she's not a firefly, she will have to look dark.

Lady on the Rock by Mr-Ripley

I have a tip about how to find a proper level of BRIGHTNESS of model/object in each background. Just quickly move the adjustment button of BRIGHTNESS adjustment from the minimum level to maximum level and from maximum level to minimum level many times until your eyes can find the right state where the model/object doesn't look too bright or too dark in that environment. :nod:  


As for the underwater scene. I still used the same process.
Besides decreasing brightness of the model, I adjusted her color a lot into cyan and blue tone to make her look related to the sea.
But I used water texture instead of light texture in this case.  

When I finished the whole work. I saved it in JPG file. 
Then I opened it again, and clicked IMAGE/ADJUSTMENT and chose 

This is the comparison between BEFORE and AFTER adjustment of the model in underwater scene.
Lady in water example2 by Mr-RipleyLady in water example3 by Mr-Ripley

AUTO COLOR tool is amazing. It usually brings me the best color tone to the final result. But sometimes it's not good enough.  

So, I adjusted the color of the whole work again.
If it looks too much in some color tone, you have to add the opposite color tone to the work.
In this case, it looks too much in cyan tone , so I added a lot of red tone to the final work. 
Lady in water example3a by Mr-Ripley

The concept of this work is quite a fantasy. But I still created it with realistic technique.
Lady in the Water by Mr-Ripley


I have another work of mine that I think it fits this topic.
Soldier by Mr-Ripley
This original image belongs to Alan Welch.
I was allowed to use for a Photoshop contest in the work below. 
You can see how I changed the soldiers into a musicians.
Peace By Music by Mr-Ripley

Thank you so much all the owners of the stock I used in this article.
The credits have already been given to you on these deviation's pages.

I guess I have already revealed you guys all my secrets.
Please let me know if you find this article useful. :heart:
If you have any question, Don't hesitate to ask. :)

:iconaplz:fter starting KING KONG AND I contestNEW DK by PxlCobit15 weeks ago, it's time to celebrate.

There are at least 6 entries that are proper enough to be the first place winner. 

It's not easy to choose because their quality are quite close. :eager:

Some contestants may be more skillful than me; but as a judge, finding flaws is my duty. 

And it's hard to find a flawless work. Each entry seems to has at least one flaw. 

So, I will not only give priority to technique and skill but also consider the concept. 

As the main theme of the contest is about King Kong and his woman, 

I looked for the entry that can portray the feeling, reaction or relationship

between King Kong and his woman well.. no matter where they are.

I noticed that most of the female models used in this contest are from faestock

I don't have time to count, but there seem to be more than 50%. 

This event almost can be called King Kong and Jessica contest. =D

Because I got so many good entries, 

I increased more prizes to thank you guys for making this contest successful. 

I ended up spending 20,082 :points: in this contest. (3,500 :points: were donated from friends, 

the rest were from various contests I won in the last 3 years.)

Though I can not give prizes to all contestants, 

at least I hope all of you had fun and useful experience from this contest more or less. 

Keep improving your skill, someday you will win. :handshake:

(There are 5 entries having broken link here because of an unknown problem.)

Okay, here are the prizes and the winners.

This is absolutely the place where King Kong is supposed to live. :clap:

The concept of Lora-Vysotskaya's entry is so romantic, creative and different.

The execution is also nicely done especially the light and shadow. 

If King Kong movie will be remade in a romantic comedy version,

this work is perfect for a movie poster.  :love:

Silence at Sunset by InertiaK

If there is a contestant that amazes me most, that person must be InertiaK

This one is absolutely a masterpiece. The colors of the whole work is incredibly beautiful,

and her Kong is the most stunning and powerful king of all.  :wow:

King Kong and I.:monkey:. by sheike 

Whendell mesmerizes us with an epic Skull Island in wild screen.

I can see a lot of details and imagination in his entry.

The color of the whole work looks really sweet as well as the Kong and the concept.

He and his girl seem to live peacefully ever after in this wonderful world.

Such a lovely work! :love:

This work shows a lot of incredible blending. Normally, I could see a flaw from most entries at first glance,

but with this one I needed a magnifying glass! :clap:

Farewell by Cold-Tommy-Gin

FarewellWocky Monkey animation by Momogirl

I always thought the winner of this contest might be one of the entries submitted in the last month.

But Cold-Tommy-Gin's entry, which was submitted since the first month,

is wonderful enough to make a miracle. 

I looked at the 3 most voted entries time and again to place one of them on the 1st place.

It's really hard to choose. But I finally give the crown to this one. 

Tommy not only tells the story of King Kong very well

but also can express the sentimental feeling between the characters

and depicts the dangerous situation at the same time in one scene.

Besides the brilliant concept, this work also shows interesting technique,
