This is the first of what will be many digital art creations. I have found a new way to be creative and look forward to sharing my growth and work in it. Each post will have a link to the fine art America page for close up view and a brief description of the art and story it tells.
This Elf, Talia, has been ostracized from her woodland community thus forcing her to move into a dank cave. Not quite evil but ever the prankster, she pulled one prank too many, thus her new medieval home in this fantasy image is a cave. This is the first of many digital art projects I have and will continue to create. I hope you enjoy the work I’ve put into each piece.
Not feeling the best today but wanted to share some develop and masking techniques in gimp 2.8. I hope you enjoy the video.

This photo, after the development became one of my favorite photos of all time. I love it so much it’s my new desktop wall paper. There was little room for improvement but I decided to just go through the motions, while I wasn’t expecting a large change it happened. I was so pleased with the way it turned out. I could hardly believe what I had created. Well here is the video I hope you find it beneficial and can walk away with a bit of new knowledge. Please let me know what you think of the video I encourage feedback for it is the only I will know if I’m on the right track. Say something bad or good I want it all but please say something.
I played around with Gimp 2.8 and found a new development process for dark photographs. In addition it also uses that great tool unsharp mask. I don’t want to ruin the surpise so why not watch the video.
