That is stunning Mike. It looks more "real" than a photo. You are good. It may not have been your intent but for me, it catches some of the lonely, one-way trip aspect of the ALS journey. The verdant far shore probably means something else to you. It is excellent.
I did not start doing digital art until after my diagnoses. It seemed like a fun activity to fill my spare time. I was inspired to paint after seeing a TV show featuring Digital Photo-Realist Artist Bert Monroy. Jen then arranged a surprise visit on my 2004 birthday. It was really cool. We have been friends ever since.
that is pretty cool, it reminds me of a bridge that I once walked on up in Canada.
Keep up the good work.
A white dove just landed on the tree in my backyard and is cooing, pretty cool.
Hey, it's supposed to rain, so don't forget your rain boots when you go out:-D
I am certain I see something different in there than you did, but it does move one. Maybe we all see something diffeent - the more I look at it the more it triggers images that I can't exactly describe. So three (or three hundrad) cheers for your art.
Now - how did you do that? You said with a pointer, but what are you controlling to do that? You must be using an amazing piece of software. I have been interested in digital art for many years - used to spend a lot of on-line bandwidth over at Renderosity - haven't looked in there recently.
Thanks to everyone who has commented on the painting. Roy, I use PhotoShop CS. You might assume from the name that I am just manipulating photos, but the software actually includes a comprehensive set of tools for producing original art. My paintings contain no photos or scans.
You are right. They do pretty well at the auctions. There will be a large canvas of "French Quarter Flavor" auctioned at Augie's Quest 2007 BASH. I believe the auction will be open on-line prior to the event. I will let everyone know when the auction opens.
