I’ve been playing in Photoshop again this evening, having completed yet another project and taught myself (via an excellent tutorial HERE), how to install brushes I downloaded recently… I even used 3 of them!!

Art Creations Friday provided an excellent image for us to use in our artwork last week, so I had a bit of fun with this one. Before we get to what I managed to create in digital art form, I have to write this. If it offends you, I apologise, but in my opinion, the artists who create digitally are amazing. It takes real dedication and imagination to produce gorgeous digi-art and I’m a really long way from that!

Anyone who thinks it’s invalid, not “real” art, or even cheating/easier because it’s made using a computer program has obviously never used photoshop to create a collage! It took me well over an hour to produce this collage and you don’t even want to know what a magnetic lasso tool is (used it for the lizards!!), never mind how many attempts it took me to cut them out. There are loads of layers in this and it would’ve been much quicker to do it in RL, but I want to learn more about Photoshop, so I’m persevering.

Okay, I’m off my soapbox now and here’s my entry!

  1. wow!! fantastic Rosie!! made me laugh!!!

  2. I know how hard it is to create something in Photoshop, I totally agree with you. You did a great job!!

  3. Great Job Rosie – but don’t you miss the touchy feely of it all – I spend so much time on the comp blogging – that if I created on it too I’d never be off it! It does widen the horizons a lot more though doesn’t it – maybe I’ll dabble one day!

  4. Just popped on to apologise have done nothing on Newton. real life getting in the way of all stitching. Lumbar Puncture was horrid on on Friday and only just getting back to stitching.
    Hope you are ok
    hugs Shellie
