Though not exactly the true art of modelling but enhancing photos has come a long way since a do-over with an air brush as a means to show us something that really wasn't !
So, here are a few reasonably successful attempts at my photoshopping ( Serif to be exact ) and please say you like them cos it took me days to find out how !

Therefore, just a few to start with to see what kind of reception they get - if any !

Allan

How about before and after shots, that way it's easier to see what has been done.

Great compilations Allan with imaginative use of what you have to hand. You are a most patient man. 
Well made,

Bill

I do most of my "enhancements" on backscenes, usually with the aim of matching the edges of adjacent sheets and not repeating too often, if at all;  favourite is to start by flipping a scene horizontally.

The backscenes I've worked with have been those of the "Windward" series

http://windward.f1p.co.uk/download/pages/Backscenes.html

I scale them to N gauge and enlarge them to print on banner paper 1200mm/4' long by about 210mm/8.25", I also have some sky images similar size so I can get a backscene between 12" and 15" high, depending on the height of the landscape image with it's bit of sky cut off.

Having flipped an image I attack it with copy/paste and the clone tool to make it less obviously a flip of the original. maybe paste in some houses, or trees, on one rural scene I added some sheep in one field and cattle in another, also added a tractor rtundling across a field with a farm trailer behind. For the images pasted in I often copy from Google images and trim and resize to suit

These at about 1/8th normal size

Original


Flipped and modified, right hand end matches left hand end of original. These 2 together will make a backscene 8' long.

If you still like looking at them, Max, surely that rules out the 'but'  :???:

It's an expression from FNQ (far north Queensland).

They put "but" on the end of their sentences.

Also, there are so few of them that they mostly communicate by radio.

That's why, if you meet one of them in the Big Smoke, they often say "over" when they have finished speaking.

Not quite mastered this photoshop stuff where photoshopping the pics is one thing, but finding the pics after is another.

Anyway, now found out how to keep track of 'em - just look for the numbers, not the pics !


So, here's a few more chaps.

 Six pics seems to be about the limit you can post at any one time, I went over that only to be told that I've exceeded the limit so had to start all over again !

Anyway, here be another six.

I'm watching, Allan.

It's just that I've run out of superlatives.

I have to go to IKEA for some more.  :lol:
