THE PICTURE OF THE DAY, 3/23/2014
Dorma Nesmond, from the Citizens of Hollywood (aka Streetmosphere) is the “Greatest Star in the Entire Universe”. She can be seen performing in Disney’s Hollywood Studios and will often remind you of her accomplishments. Very often.
For this portrait, I duplicated the background and added an overlay layer between the two “Dorma” layers. I filled the overlay layer with black, set to 50% opacity to darken the bottom-most layer and used layer masks around Dorma’s head and body to slightly darken the background while she had a bit more “pop”. A few more adjustments in Lightroom and Photoshop and what you see here is the finished Dorma Nesmond portrait.
She’s kind of like Norma Desmond, but alive and better!
