Fan Fiction Image Manipulations (1)

Around this time last year I was introduced to the world of livejournal and graphic art by a certain fellow seaQuest and graphics fan (modestroad ) and I've never looked back.  I started out with simple seaQuest avatars but quickly learned there was a lot more to playing about with images than just making icons.  There are so many incredible artists out there with lots of ideas and techniques to learn from.  I'd seen a few journals where two actors had been put together in a composite photo to go with a story and LOVED this idea.

A few months later I picked out an actress to 'act' as the OC I'd created for my seaQuest fan fictions and I set about creating some image manipulations of her and Miguel Ortiz.  I picked out Alexis Bledel by her age and pure chance, but I think she's worked out pretty well for this.
I use GIMP, which can be pretty restricting at times, mainly because the program is so memory consuming I have to turn everything else off before I run it - including the internet, so therefore my manipulations may not be as top spec as those produced by photoshop users.  But I've had fun making them and have finally decided to share them with a wider audience.

A lot of work went into these so stealing will be frowned upon.  Icons and manipulations are off limits but feel free to snag a wallpaper for personal use.  I've mainly posted these for feedback, so if you're passing by please comment and let me know what you think, where I could improve, etc.  More will be posted eventually x

Thank you - they're from a song called 'Weapon' by Matthew Good. A friend of mine introduced me to him a couple of years ago x
