Just got back on Friday from Thailand saw lots of amazing things checked out lots of art and while at the Bangkok art gallery saw these miniature shops they had perspex over the top and were a little hard to photograph as they had lights and were behind a shop window they were for sale only a few hundred baht each just thought would share with u for the current project cheers kim x
I created this one in my journal with textas and then took to it into photoshop.
I mainly used the colour picker and paint bucket to go over the top of my texta colour which has created a lovely textured look
this cartoon reminds me of the time I worked for yarra trams one of my colleagues ducked up a lane in the city of Melbourne to have a quick ciggy and as he leant up against the brick wall a pigeon did a big poop all down his back it was hilarious!
while visiting Thailand last year took this photo of topairy elephants in the summer palace gardens in Bangkok
the bottom pic shows the original photo
and the top pic shows my photoshop editing I took out the ground light & the lamp behind the elephant using the clone tool
& I used the dodge tool to lighten the trees in the background and I made some more adjustments using Image/Levels (Control L)
Prints of this are available in my store http://www.madeit.com.au/bluedogstudio
taking my pop portrait from last week and merging layers and using blending modes I placed a photo under neath my portrait changed the opacity and stuff it looks like I am somewhere tropical in a beautiful garden mmmm maybe Thailand I wish!
Once again while in Thailand I went to visit Jim Thompson's
house he was the founder of the Thai Silk Industry but he mysteriously disappeared while visiting Malaysia
his house sat idle for some time before the Thais took it over and opened it to the public its a beautiful Thai teak house and the gardens are lovely and it backs onto Bangkok's klongs (little canals where the river runs)
below is the original photo of the house taken by me
Thailand is my favorite destination so much so I go there every year to visit
The class task once again was to take a photo and make some changes
I took this photo last holiday while visiting Autthaya Its the Old City of Thailand once the Capitol but nowadays Bangkok is the capital any how after a few battles this place had suffered some damage but it is now under World Heritage Protection its an amazing place and I had the best day visiting there with my guide Warren
I took the photo and over the top I laid my original doodle then I took to adding some colour to it
I have made this piece another time the doodle has been made into a painting as well which has been sold
The class task here was to take a photo and change a few things like hue,saturation,well I did all that but thought it looked a little dull still and the bloke was just standing there so I gave him a fishing rod added some funky fish and then placed a huge warning sign "NO FISHING HERE" almost like the Hollywood sign stuck on the side of the hill but this ain't Hollywood baby!
We had sum fun in this class playing with shapes and creating something out of them not as good as whats his name??? that Anthony made us look at on u-tube as soon as I get my journal out will add his name and the link to his u tube videos they were good
My first thoughts on digital art and using Photo shop
was THIS IS GOING TO DO MY HEAD IN !
but on reflection and a little more practise I find I am starting to enjoy it, Now if only my memory will hold onto the information on how to use this program maybe I need to start taking Kinko tablets
This Indian is none too happy as he was out shopping for tomahawks and They didn't stock them
this was the story of my life when I lived in Korumburra just about everything that I went out specially to purchase wasn't available it drove me insane,just ordinary things like light cream,coconut milk,and fence extensions now that a whole other story!!
