Some New Work....
I did the sketch for this piece about a year ago..funny how you keep looking at a sketch and it says...not just yet...wait a bit. I did..until I rediscovered it again last weekend. It was ready to be worked. So here is a bit of "Fairy Om". Hope ya like her..I kinda do.
I have also had several requests for more Scotties..so here is one. I love doing these little guys, soooo much expression..blame Holly! So here is a young Scottie and a new friend. Well maybe....
I made a new discovery this week...OMG be still my heart..I am in love..I am enchanted...I may faint. I need a photo editing program..I have been searching Photoshop Elements and CS4 (too expensive sadly), Lightroom...etc. I also purchased a book containing Fantasy artwork..many of them use Photoshop and Corel. Being an artist..I was curious about what I was missing here in graphic arts. I prefer the real thing..but I like to play a bit too.
I was missing this...Corel Paint 11 Program...OMG OMG OMG!! I was able to download a trial. Wowowowowowowowowowow! I know I may be coming very late to the show...but seriously I am amazed! I played with the above digital image for a bit last night..just to mess around with the tools..nothing fancy or precise..but gave me a wee taste of what this badboy program can do!
About two years back a fellow I know showed me some artwork he had done with a graphics program...really cool stuff. I asked him what program he was using...he told me it was too complicated for me and I couldn't afford it. Despite asking several times..he refused to tell me. Did that piss me off..uhhmm yup. Just an end note...not to long ago he came to me after loosing his very lucrative job and asked me for help getting going selling online as he was a bit lost..blog..etc...not so stupid after all;)
Have a good Thursday all! Namaste, Sarah
