Just playing around. I've discovered these things called "actions". I wasn't happy with my first couple of tries and had to close the image and bring it back up. I found some actions by googling the word along with photoshop. A lot out there; they're just short-cuts for stuff you can do without them.

Composition and Compositing

I stretched the tunnel sideways and changed the color. The color was changed on the man too after being placed in the scene.

I mainly wanted to get rid of that red cast and, more challenging, fix Marilyn's teeth. Still more to learn; not through all of this weeks videos yet.

Ramesses II (Mid-Term Project)

Made some font changes. Still says Chosen of Re but in hieroglyphics.

Hieroglyphic font-

Ramesses II

Ramesses II, referred to as Ramesses the Great, was the third Egyptian pharaoh of the Nineteenth dynasty. He is often regarded as the greatest, most celebrated, and most powerful pharaoh of the Egyptian Empire.

I looked at and experimented with a lot of images before I settled on these. There's quite a bit of Overlay Mode  and Emboss used in this image.  Osiris didn't make the final cut.

Layer 5 is the hieroglyphics at the bottom. I found some hieroglyphic brushes and made a document using them, then I copy/pasted it onto my image and used Emboss and Overlay.

The Fibonacci Spiral was simply used as a guide.
