Lady of The Lake: Photo Manipulation.

Lady of The LThis was a piece that I couldn’t get out of my head, and I just had to do it. Again, it look simple but when I got into the details then everything turned really complicated. There are a lot components that made up this piece and I think this was one of the reasons why it was so difficult.

Rain On Me: Photo Manipulation

ROM2I had to take a long hiatus to do some work on the blogging side, and then my computer died and then I had to set up the new laptop. So long hiatus on the art stuff, and believe me I was sorry to do it. This is sort of a warm up, something familar and supposedly easy. This piece looks easy, but was hard as heck to do. I had to scrap the first piece, and this is the second draft. It really took a long time to get the details right.  It was the lighting and the shadows, and the rose. Don’t get me started on the rose.

Witchkind: Book Cover + Photo Manipulation (Teen Wolf)

So the one thing I miss about writing is world building. It’s actually my favorite part of the writing process, and I have been tinkering with a world building making a secret society or underground of witches (which is gender neutral in my world) called Witchkind. I had the vision of a piece connected with my Witchkind world. And to me, Stiles is connected to this world (plot bunny ahoy)! And then I found the model for his body, and it evolved into a rocker/glam  rock kind of feel. The hardest part is getting the background just right. This piece was so difficult, with so many, many pieces. I really love the end result though.

A Window To Nowhere: Photo Manipulation

The-Window-To-NowhereSo I have been sick lately and that has taken a chunk out of my art and blogging time. I’m feeling much better now, and I’m decided to do a simple photo manipulation to get back into the swing of things after my unexpected hiatus.  I really love the end result. The hardest part was cutting the existing background in the windows and getting the lighting and shading just right. In the end, it turned out pretty well. 🙂

Home On The Range: Premade Book Cover

Home-On-The-Range2So I wasn’t really happy with my first cowboy themed book cover, and I wanted to do more work with male models and I so created this. I’m loads happier with this book cover than the other one. Everything in it is actually photo manipulated and I had a ton of fun making it.

St. Louis

St. Louis Blues: Premade Book Cover

St. Louis This is another book cover where I wanted to do something really diverse. I am all about diversity in media and in my real life and thought it was high time to put my money where my mouth is. Again, I saw the model and I was instantly inspired by blues, and jazz. Then, I thought about my friend Starr who has encouraged and cheered me on since the get go and she lives in Missouri. So I decided to do something with St. Louis, and then to parallel the who blues feeling I actually made it blue.

Shut Up and Drive

Shut and Drive: Premade Book Cover

Shut Up and Drive I wanted have a more diverse set of book covers, and I decided to do something with a man on the cover. I saw this photo with the model and I was instantly inspired.  The model already had desert background, but I wanted to expand the scale of the background. I really like the end result.
