Erisian - could not resist giving it a try, but I got lost somewhere towards the end. So I just took some liberties and then added some pink snow to the newspaper - do not know why!

oldmangrumpy: pink fluffy snow :) ! nice job, i think the bear hug was a nice image to choose for this.

i tried this tutorial way back (before i joined gc, actually, and before i had the tutorial writer around to yell at whenever the tut was giving me trouble) and i had no trouble understanding it but i pretty soon saw what was giving me trouble. the thing is, both very dark and very light areas in the original will give you trouble, and you need to compensate for that somehow. today when i tried it i also had trouble because my layer stack was in its usual mess and disorder - very different from erisian's minimalistic and orderly approach to layers :hehe - so putting the paper person layer into overlay mode did unexpected things. if erisian actually does look over this and rewrite it, i think it might be a help if he went through what the layer stack should look like at the end.

i didn't choose a very suitable picture this time either, but i refused to do the tutorial with a meaningless stock image of a hug that doesn't mean anything to me. instead, i choose a classic scene from a bollywood movie favourite - and of course, the actress has very dark hair and a white night gown, and there are so many loose hairstrands to deal with! on top of that, i couldn't find a good original on high resolution, so i had lots of trouble getting the details in. i used quite a lot of tweaking to my map layer and added some of the shadows afterwards, by using a copy of my map layer where i masked out all but the darkest shades. my handwritten letter in hindi (i couldn't use newspaper for this, i just couldn't! it would ruin the wole bollywood feel) wasn't densely enough written, so i had too many white areas to give a nice displacement too. but in the end, i got a nice looking composition and had fun taking the tutorial, that's most important!

Thanks OMG and Erisian. I must continue practising to get a more perfect outcome, but I'm happy with this first one. Thanks Erisian for writing such an interesting tutorial. :hi5
