Trippy Flower Power
Work Details (for DAC group)
- the big daisy flower photograph sourced from publicdomainpictures.net
- bubble brushes courtesy of brusheezy.com
- astral brushes sourced from brusheezy.com
- remainder of images from my personal collection
I dont often describe the process involved, so hope this helps!
I cleaned up all images of the flowers, deleted backgrounds, smoothed edges…
The bubbles were strategically placed :) in a new layer
The flowers then arranged within the bubbles
(always work with seperate layers)
Colour overlays added to the flower layer….
New layer underneath, added background effects using abstract and astral brushets, resizing, finding the right spot…all that jazz :)
Another new layer… paint it black… put it to the back of the pile
Another layer… signature… strategically place it in an a fitting place
Now pick a random layer… sign it somewhere unobtrusive… but somewhere that will mar the overall image if ever attempted to be removed by another party…
Go back to the flower layer
burn and dodge are great friends when used with the same logic as an eraser and pencil
using this logic, shade the flowers… add the light…
This resulted in ‘pic one’ .
This was then repeated four times with different composition and colours.
Then I merged all four pics onto the one, moved them around to where i wanted them.
Then save it in layers! just in case :)
and with that great little smudge tool, fix up the background effects so the whole image is linked/overlapping..
That was the process involved in creating this piece :)
(all done in photoshop CS3)
