This is my progress so far. I have cut out all of my images (the hand still need some work around the edges). Obviously, I am not currently happy with the way it looks very disjointed- I will be working to make the image look more natural before I submit It! I am also tossing up between having just one hand in the image or having more than one. I need to talk to my tutor tomorrow about how I can manipulate the images together more effectively, perhaps merging the bark into the skin. I also need to ask about how to go about creating the look of a cross section. I have photographed some soil to use, but am not sure how to manipulate it into the image. I will also add an overall colour grade to make sure all the images look as if they are in the same space.
