This series of Digital Art was inspired by HBO’s Game of Thrones, one of my favorite books and a great TV series. If you haven’t had the chance to watch it highly recommend it. For this image I used some interesting retouching and sharpening techniques I’ve been experimenting with. Tyrion is one of my all time favorite characters. I actually like the Lannisters in general since they are less naive than the other characters in the series. This was one of the first pieces I did with Photoshop CS6.
I went on to retouch a photo of myself on to the Iron Throne. I used less sharpening in this one and went for a less texturized feel for it. I worked more with lighting in this piece and did some retouching and color correction to the throne itself to make the composite more realistic.
