I wasn’t intending to get back to blogging so soon but Jake’s Sunday Challenge – Fantasy stimulated my imagination. I made these images in Photoshop last night and really wanted to share them with you.
I meant to keep a record of the processes I used but am discovering digital art is highly intuitive, takes hours and doesn’t always follow logic. For this image I started with a black and white ink drawing which I scanned. I then used a combination of Gradient Maps, Hue Adjustments, Glowing Edges Filter and the Curves Tool to create the finished work. The glowing blue colour appeared ‘as if by magic’ somewhere in the processes.
This little image was simpler to create. It began with a photo of a tower in Bruges which I altered using the Find Edges Filter. I then used a combination of Gradient Maps, Hue Adjustments, Glowing Edges Filter. The golden colour magically appeared when I manipulated the Curves Tool. I wonder how it will print out?
Thanks for getting me blogging again Jake
