As well as the original B&W photograph which inspired this image, I used digital painting over-laid with several of my own textures and various manipulations in Photoshop CS3.

I don’t know what I would do if I couldn’t create, it’s as natural to me as breathing, especially now that we have the means to achieve great art with digital photography. It’s so exciting and I feel that my creativity has finally come to fruition with these fantastic digital tools.
