These are 5 steps from start to finish on the piece that I created from my written name.
I use Corel Painter X and Adobe Photoshop. First I cut, paste the shapes of the letters written.
Then I use those shape and start overlaying them, distorting them, playing with shapes, and filtering the shapes.
I save each step along the way so I can go back into the layers if I need to pull back or use those steps in other pieces of art.
Then I can use those layers, colors and shapes to create different feelings.
And then I can draw and paint on top of the image to create a piece that crosses the line between being graphic and the painterly image.
