Pass Into Light
This is by far the most complicated manipulation I have created to date. Multiple resources including photos, PNG files, brushes, Photoshop effects and multiple (layer masked) passes through both NIK Color Efex and Analog Efex were used. While there are some areas that I feel could be improved I am really happy with how it turned out in the end.
"Pass Into Light" was directly inspired by "Celestial Warrior Liliel" by Carlos Quevedo - http://www.deviantart.com/art/Celestial-Warrior-Liliel-447058433
