One In A Billion by ArtByDrew

*She brightly shines amongst the rest
Had from the start, my heart possessed
A lucky man, I’m truly blessed
My precious prize in life’s contest

Amongst all others that did surround
From sea so vast it does confound
One in a billion, I have found
To give my life, meaning profound*

This artwork was inspired by my beautiful wife, who has always put up with me and loved me unconditionally. She is my ‘One In A Billion’, although, I’m sure that it is much higher number in reality than a billion. :)

This was created in both PSP8 and Photoshop. I drew up the original vector heart in PSP8, and then used that to make the masks and composites in Photoshop. It was done trying to give it kind of an ‘art-deco’ feel to it. The cutaway below shows the central heart in better detail, as it is hard to see otherwise.

I am pleased and honored that this artwork has won first place for the Drop Of Color challenge in the Abstract Digital Art and Writing Group for December 2008. To be awarded this honor by your peers, many of them you consider far more talented than yourself, is indeed the greatest of compliments.

I am an artist, a photographer, a writer, a musician, a composer, a craftsman, a designer, and a programmer. I have been recognized for various works in all of these areas over the last half century.

    It is not so attractive … yet it is so unique … it is so different from other arts I seen here … Good concept.

  • Thank you, React Global! To have the artwork seen as being unique is among the greatest of compliments one can give :)
