20130922 Death of a Stormtrooper

265 / 365

Firstly, apologies if this offends...

Please don't feel obliged to comment on this.
I've just been practising composites again and trying to use the Wacom tablet. The background is a bunker at Elizabeth Castle in Jersey (oh my was that place awesome for composite backgrounds!) and the stormtrooper was shot today (if you'll pardon the pun) against a white background.
Not quite sure I've got the scaling right, but I'm quite pleased with the shadows going up the wall and the colour correction. Probably needs viewing large to get the effect.

The rays of like are from Gavin Hoey's Light Ray Brushes again:
