I found another wonderful art community at a website called Digital Whisper (see sidebar for the link). It's a site devoted mainly to artists working with digital art. This is right up my alley! While I'm really starting to experiment in the more traditional art forms I will always love my digital art. And, as you can see from the last couple of posts, digital art can very easily be incorporated into your 3-D art thanks to all of the image transfer techniques that are available.
I made this piece in response to the weekly challenge at Digital Whisper. All we were given was an image of a red chair and asked to see where that took us. I loved the vibrant red color! It immediately made me think of roses so I added roses to the background of the chair to make it look like the fabric was a rose print. The rest is all layers and layers of Photoshop work. At last count I think there were about 20 layers. I'm not sure if it's entirely finished yet. I'll live with it for another day or so and then submit it to the challenge.
I'm also printing images onto new Digital Grounds materials and will have more of those to show soon. And today I begin to sculpt the cloth doll a face made out of paperclay. It's going to get very messy so I have to find an old shirt and lots of baby wipes!! I'll post results soon.
