It’s time for a late night, double feature, picture show. Which is a fancy way of saying that I completely forget yesterday and making up for it today. Both picture today are animal oriented, although one is a lot clearer than the other in that respect. I took a picture of my sisters young kitten … Continue reading
A couple of days ago I used a picture of a flower I made in Roos Wijnen her garden last summer. It inspired me to do a bit more with it, but I also wanted to keep the original as a comparison for how much it changed. Using a layer mask with agradient, smart objects … Continue reading
Yesterday someone commented that i should do something with Dr Who in it. Now I happened to have this Sonic Spork lying around (as apposed to his Sonic Screwdriver), which i decided to have some fun with. So I’ll leave you with this question, what would be the better digging device?
Continuing with the idea of toys in unexpected situations, I’ve dropped a giant figurine in the space between the apartment buildings here. The lighting is not 100% in order on both, but i think i got most of it fixed so that it doesn’t look too out of place.
Valentine is upon us, and when looking for inspiration on what to draw today its not long before you come to the “hearts” and “roses”. Not one to look a gift horse in the mouth, I set forth to do thus, but with a little bit of what I hope is a unique and interesting … Continue reading
It’s been snowing here, and although I do not care much for snow when traveling, it is very pretty. Today’s contraption was a picture taken from my balcony, which i then made a lot starker in contrast en finally using the outlines made in to the result shown here.
Keeping with the theme of last night, I decided to work some more on the picture of Saffron. The dark background is not photoshopped, but actually just an empty black trashcan to get the proper setting effect.
I’ve always been a little bit intrigued by vector images. If done well, they look awesome, but when you zoom in just a bit too far, they get an abstract quality to them. On one hand there’s a bunch of squiggly lines and areas that are seemingly disconnected and seem to hold no relation with … Continue reading
As I’ve shown last week I need to work on eyes. Not so much the quality of the eyes, but just to make a matching set. Today I’ve worked on that a bit. I’ve tried some eyes of different shapes and levels of detail, from rather complex to pretty darn simplistic. Just by putting down … Continue reading
Continuing with yesterdays theme, I made a gear in illustrator, textured it and added some life to it, and then used the same technique as i did yesterday to etch the letters into the copper gear. Finally i added some other gears (not home made) for the background to not be static white. The idea … Continue reading
