Here I go again…trying new stuff. I’ve recently gotten myself mixed up in digital painting. I purchased a Wacom tablet and I’m starting to think this might be the world for me. Here is a painting I did of my son using only photoshop. This is the 3rd DP I’ve completed. It’s a medium that is wonderful to use because the clean up is non-existent.
I still have a lot to learn in terms of how to properly apply coloring etc. I’ll keep you posted.
For my church we are working on a Children’s Ministry logo. Since it is the DFW Church, for whom I submitted a logo design for a couple weeks ago, I wanted to keep some consistency. You can find the DFW Church logo on my site under the digital art.
This image is only a draft. If approved, I will update it. I like it enough to post.
A couple members of our church is thinking about re-creating our church logo.
This logo is the best of the samples that I submitted for consideration.
The church is DFW Church. The web address is DFWchurch.net.
The idea is meant to state that the church is part of the city and vice versa. The colors are the basic color theme that we tend to go use. It’s very USA. But I think I did a good job with it so here it is.
Okay….so I’ve been doing a lot of photography…a lot!
I’ve done family photos…graduation photos…prom photos…and pet photos.
I think it’s because it’s so easy in this day of digital photography to shoot away and then edit in Photoshop. Also, I have an excellent assistant who has done a lot of photo editing for me.
With photography as an artistic form it is important for me to play angles and lighting. In this particular shoot, with the dogs, I had a situation where the flowers were very “short” at maybe 6 inches in height. So I lowered the camera and shot at an angle that helped the field to look fuller with flowers. The low position also helped the flowers to look larger and more prominent.
I was given a task of creating a logo for a website for Christian learning.
I developed a couple of ideas, but this one might be my favorite. The image is of a lion’s head casting a shadow in it’s mane. The shadow is the general profile of a person’s face. The face is to be reading a book…the Bible.
The lion with a cross on it’s forehead represents Jesus who is often referred to as the Lion of Judah. The face reading the bible represents His (Jesus’s) disciples who are symbolically part of the glory of their king.
