Goddess of Time

Has it really been 10 months since my last photo manipulation? Time certainly does fly, as the Goddess of Time above is all too aware of. Nice segue into the image, Barry! *gives self pat on back*


The idea of a frame opening as a window to another world has been done many times in art, but I’d like to think I made a somewhat unique and creative version of the concept.


In this design, we have the Goddess of Time in her world beyond worlds. Each frame is a window into a different time period (ancient Greece on the left, the not-so-distant past in the middle, and the future on the right). The one in the center got knocked over and opened the world into her realm. The ocean begins to spill out and a man rowing a small boat inexplicably strikes something solid and gets thrown out. He is now hanging onto the frame for dear life as the goddess is quickly attempting to fix the frame before disrupting that time period any further.


I use them regularly, but this is the first time that I’ve added an abundance of color balance and color curve adjustment layers to make all of the colors vibrant and really pop. I wanted a more surreal vibe with almost unrealistic colors. In the end, I’m quite happy with the result.


As is the case in many of my designs, I felt the need to add myself into it (I’m hanging from the frame, in not quite time period appropriate clothing. It was the best I could find). My reasons are twofold:

    1.       I find it hilarious

    2.       It allows me to take a photo in the exact position I need, which can oftentimes be difficult to find in stock photos


I hope you like the design. Thank you for all of the amazing stock photos credited below!

Seven Years
Happy Samhain! I haven’t done any artistic Photoshopping in a long time, so I decided to create my first Halloween inspired design.


This image tells a story of a witch and warlock. The witch remained in her arcane circle of protection, but when the mirror shattered apart, her wards fell. This allowed the warlock to summon a demon though a portal in the reflection, which comes up to grab the witch. She doesn’t see the demon, but the fight isn’t over for her yet. Meanwhile, her pet cat-bird stands there indifferent to his surroundings, as cats tend to do. That was my idea, anyhow.


The ground took forever to mask to create a realistic broken mirror effect, but this was a fun one to make and I’m really happy with the result.

I am new to Photoshop, but I am thoroughly enjoying using it for photo editing and manipulations. I'm no professional, but I thought I'd start sharing some of the things I've worked on, rather than keeping them on the computer where they'll never be seen.

I hope you enjoy my work!
