This image was so much fun to create.
The first thing we did was build the custom headpiece for the model using foam core and covered it with false hair from a beauty supply store. Our hairstylist wove her natural hair in with the false hair on the headpiece to create a seamless transition. After the headpiece was in place, feathers were stuck into the foam to create the look we wanted. To add a bit of shine to her skin baby oil was applied several times during the shoot.

So much of what makes this image interesting was done in Photoshop. We started with a solid photo, but it is a far cry from the final.

The Phlearn Pro tutorial is half price today if you want to see how I put it together from start to finish!

We had an amazing team helping out with this shoot. Couldn't have done it without them.
