Today’s Art (18th December 2019)

Well, I felt like making a couple of pieces of photo-based art. So, today’s art is a digitally-edited drawing based on this photo I took of a sunset in Westbrook in January.

Today’s Art (3rd November 2019)

Well, I was in the mood for photo-based art. So, this is a quick digitally-edited drawing that was based on a detail from this photo I took of the Isle Of Wight (as seen from Hill Head) last November.

Today’s Art (11th April 2019)

Well, although it was a little bit rushed (and I had to leave out some trees for time/practicality reasons), today’s digitally-edited drawing is based on this photo I took last May. And, yes – in the right lighting and from the right angle – this building reminds me a lot of the pyramid-like Tyrell Building from “Blade Runner“.

Today’s Art (8th April 2019)

Well, today’s digitally-edited drawing is the fourth (and final) one in my recent “Westbrook Sunset” series (you can find the previous three drawings here, here and here) and it was based on part of this photo I took last April.

I also used a lot of artistic licence with this one. In addition to leaving out some complex tree branches (for practical reasons), I also tried to give this picture slightly more of a “1990 cartoon” look (since the area really hasn’t changed that much since the ’90s) in addition to using things like film grain effects, subtle colours etc.. to give it an ominous atmosphere that was inspired by parts of the classic horror game “Silent Hill 3“.

Today’s Art (7th April 2019)

This is another digitally-edited drawing (based on this photo of a sunset I took last April). Like with the previous couple of drawings (which can be seen here and here), I’ve tried to make this one look more realistic by digitally sampling some of the colours from the original photo (although I ended up altering the saturation levels slightly).

Unfortunately though, trees really don’t turn out that well in this type of art – so, this digitally-edited drawing didn’t end up looking quite as good as I’d hoped.
