My Creative World…

Message In A Bottle


I saw a cool video in which a guy used Photoshop to put a scene inside of a bottle that was floating in water. I know how to use Photoshop, though not as skillfully as that guy. I decided that I would try it with my Ipad apps.

I searched for an appropriate photo of a bottle in water. Here is one that I found in a random search.

Then I merged the two using my Procreate app, layering one on top of the other, erasing the parts I didn’t want, and painting in details. Not quite as slick as his, but I thought it turned out pretty well.
