Combination of artrage oils sketch and then worked on in Photodirector, oo I like it! Sounds simple but I did a lot of work on the digital sketch before I started using filters. I won’t post the original, it’s a bit too scrappy.
Peeling paint filter over duplicated flags. I have tried to create an image that you might have found on an old billboard, perhaps in the states although the pattern is not correct (I’m not sure what country it represented, and as I have duplicated its more difficult to recognise). I might try and paint it as an abstract image.
I decided to play with a previous drawing. It’s fascinating how you can rotate and reposition images in Instagram filters. You can make parts of the image recede or come forward. And if I’d wanted to I could have blurred the edges of the image. It also allows you to change the colours and contrast, shadows and brightness. Other apps allow you to do other things. The world is your oyster.
#bandofsketchers prompt for Sunday was bright lights. I tried, but there aren’t many bright lights near where I live so I made up a Las Vegas sign, didn’t like it so put it through a digital filter….increasing the brightness, colours, adding texture.
Oh I do love a filter, playing with colours. Adding layers, making the pattern slide around. Like Graffiti on a garage door. Splat! Somehow I am creating things that look medieval and Mexican or South American at the same time? I don’t know, but I’m enjoying playing with it.
Cat drawn with a biro. Then I altered it in photodirector, and then added colours with a flood fill and a digital pen. I like building different layers. It’s fun being creative.
I see an alien, green figure in this landscape. By playing with filters you can get surreal effects. I think this had a feeling of ancient topiary. I used a texture and mirroring filter to change it and make it more interesting I hope.
The first picture was drawn in ArtRage oils. The second was edited in Photodirector. Take your pick of which you prefer. I’ve changed the texture and colours in the second one. I’ve also added an overlay of grunge and some extra texture using a couple of the filters. I think although they are both digital, the first looks more painterly, the second more stylised, like a print. I could imagine both of them being used as editorial images as illustrations for a written presentation about horses? All the time I’m trying to improve my drawing and art skills….
I wanted to take a photo of our zoom meeting but not identify who’s in it so I’ve put the photo through a few filters to distort the image. I think it looks a bit like embroidery or a tapestry?
