My first step was to make some thumbnails and decide on the best one.
I saw something similar when researching online but decided not to use this thumbnail.
I liked the idea of a photograph because the photographic evidence is a big part of the legend.
My next step was to create the poloriod picture frame. I found this on google and used it as a reference.
I then went into Illustrator and began to make the frames.
After that was done I added some dirt in photoshop using some brushes.
Now that the frames are complete I began to work on the picture. I used this picture as a reference.
I started in photoshop by making the water. Many layers later this is what I came up with.
I added the sky and hill in the same way I did the water.
After I did the Background I began to work on the monster. I drew out what i wanted first.
I then took the image into illustrator and made a vector image of it.
In Photoshop I then added the monster in the picture and fixed it to work together and added some lightning and fog.
I then placed all the elements together and added text.
This is what I came up with.
