ART GALLERY-DIGITAL ART


Dragon in Ice Cave
This is the first bit of digital art I ever did. I took a photo of an ice cave from the web and added a dragon. It is nothing at all special but I was so thrilled that I was able to do something like this!

And even more thrilled some years later to discover that I still had a copy of it.

Two alien specimens in jars. I had been collecting these for some time and one day I thought about what I could do with them.
First I cropped each image and put it into a film border.

Then I grouped them all together on a page and gave them an aged look:

Finally I added them to a mysterious letter.....

All a bit silly, I know but it was a lot of fun!

Those of you who use Photoshop and Paint Shop Pro... and possibly other computer art programs... will be familiar with a delightful little tool called a 'picture tube'. You chose a small image from a menu and then you can 'squirt' it (that's what it feels like to me) all over the digital paper. I love using them. For the fun of it I made up a bare tree on a background and then had fun putting 'leaves' on the tree with the picture tube tool. Here are some of the results.

A tree of gems and a tree of stars

Tree of Light

Tree of Light. This is my favourite. I also did a tree of hearts but can't find it.

Thank you Tree

And this one on a different background, is a Thank You Tree.
Oh... here's the heart tree that I was looking for. I forgot that I had used it as the base for this image.
