Today’s Art ( 9th July 2017)

Well, today’s 1980s/90s-style gothic cyberpunk artwork started out as a watercolour painting but, after I’d scanned it and done my usual digital editing (to the brightness/contrast levels and the hue/saturation/lightness levels, as well as adding rain and lights in the sky) I still wasn’t quite satisfied with it.

Then I suddenly had an idea for a different editing technique that I really wanted to try out. By using the “dilate” effect in Paint Shop Pro 6 and then altering the highlight/midtone/shadow levels quite drastically (with another couple of small hue/saturation/lightness adjustments for good measure), I was able to make it look a bit like some kind of impressionist pixel art picture 🙂
