The Draw of Dark and Light by Theelfinartist The Draw of Dark and Light by Theelfinartist
OK, OK, So I know this isn't anything even CLOSE to what I've done recently with miss ~kaleso or anything, but :iconlegendofzeldanerds: was having a contest and I really wanted to jump in! :)
The theme was "Dark Link VS Link"
I know this isn't exactly a battle shot, so to say, but I wanted to show something a little more thought provoking. Something where Dark Link is more of a shadow of Link in the picture, but still an opposing force. I hope that made sense and is actually conveyed alright in the photo. haha!
ALSO! This is a heavily manipulated photo! I photoshopped two images of myself in my Link cosplay, left the one in the front as is, and then manipulated the second (in the back) to look like Dark Link. So I changed the colors of things and the like. :) The background is real though. Yes, it's my back yard. HAHA.

I also realize that I put this under "People&Portraits > Cosplay" as apposed to Photo Manipulation. I did this because I felt the cosplay was more of the focus here. I apologize if you don't agree ^^;

Good gracious, I hope this doesn't look too lame. x'D

SO ANYWHO! I will get back to posting new cosplay photos tomorrow/later this week. <3
Enjoy!

And the cosplay looks so nicely made!
