So I’ve been working on this new fic, entitled “Acts of Vengeance”. It’s an alternate version of an old fic called “The Evil Side of Slave”. I’d reread it a few weeks back and decided it needed a rewrite but I didn’t want to remove the old one, so an alternative version was called for.
While considering the next scene, I stopped to make a graphic in PS, using a watercolor mess I created in Painter.
(and can I interrupt my post for a sec and complain about using an F’ing brace on my left hand while trying to type? Grrr)
Anyways, I made a jpeg of my graphic and threw it into Filter Forge for a blood effect. It fits the fic plot. I may change it all later, but I like the current result. So now I’m asking for opinions. Doesn’t mean I’ll change anything. :-p I’d just like opinions.
This is the beginning. The watercolor image I created in Painter was adjusted with a watercolor filter in PS to give it an edgier look.
This is the filtered version after applying a bloodletting effect in Filter Forge.
I realize that it’s been all covered up, but the premise of the fic is about slavery and brutality, so it needed nastiness.
