I am currently working my way through an online Photoshop course called Awake! Living the (Photo)-Artistic Life. The designer of this course, Sebastian Michaels, has created an online Digital Art magazine and I have a bit of a write up in issue 2.

I feel very humbled to be a part of such a talented group of artists.
Please take the time to look through this wonderful magazine and appreciate the other artists' work.

Male model!

Woo hoo! I've finally got my hands on a few photos of a real, not only good looking but a real sweetheart of a guy. Steve Morovek. Normally, in my course material, we are given images of women, mostly nudes. Nothing wrong with that but I wanted to use a male model so my friend Steve offered 3 of his photos of himself to me.

So far I've managed to come up with these.

So far he seems pretty pleased with them. It really is nice to have a guy to 'play with.'

Elements Only!

I often see images posted on the net and in Digital Art magazines of digital collages where no photos are used. I fancied having a go but found it really hard to do this type of digital art/collage. I'm usually inspired by the photo or a quote that sort of goes with a photo.

Anyway, here are my first two real attempts that I'm actually willing to share.

This technique requires more work form me. Off to play. See you soon.

Yellow Phase

I appear to be in a yellow phase with my images right now. Nothing wrong with yellow. It's cheerful and warm and makes me feel good. Here are a few of my 'Yellow Phase' creations.

This last piece is total whimsy, not especially good but I had fun doing it.

I wonder what phase I'll be in next?!!!

Angel of the North

I recently managed to take some photos of what I consider to be a really awesome sculpture - The Angel of the North - up at Gateshead.

I think he is just amazing. I've tried to do a clean, simple piece in keeping with the clean lines of the angel himself and a much more arty piece.
