New Surrealism

This image was made by editing out the background of a photograph, using multiple layers and various brushes and adding lighting to create an illustration behind it, then filtering the layer from the photograph and blending it into the background to create a surreal image that depicts a person disintegrating into feathery wisps.  The hardest part was trying to blend the different parts of the image and create depth.

Wolf Illustration II

This illustration was also created for the online school and was made the same way in Corel Painter 11 and Adobe Photoshop as the first wolf illustration.  The image only uses two colours, but made use of the tablet pressure sensitivity and different opacity levels to create a wide range of shades.

This assignment was to create an inspirational illustration to submit to the online school that was opened this spring.  The image was drawn in Corel Painter 11 using Sumi-e brushes and several layers.  The text was added using Adobe Photoshop.
