This is my submission to the Advanced Photoshop Cover Contest, and it was one of the 4 selected images! It was on the cover of issue 65 (sorry, i didn’t upload this sooner)
The contest was to take one of 10 istock images that the magazine chose and turn it into something cool. Of course, this was right up my alley so I had to give it a go.

Like in any contest, I tried to think of what the judges wanted to see and since the work from my AmalgaMATE series had been on the cover more than once before, I continued with that look and I added somewhat of an athletic feel, like she’s a futuristic soccer player (popular in England) ;)
I’m trying to think of why I picked this name ‘Dexteria’ (I can remember rushing to finish and naming it was the last thing I did). The dictionary defines dexterity as: Skill and grace in physical movement. I think that fits.
There’s a picture of me on the inside. I look kinda cheesy
