Architecture Digital Rendering



I'm thinking about what artistic and learning projects I want for 2010. Some things will go back on the shelf, others will continue, and I may do something new. One thing I am very committed to is advancing my rendering and illustration skills in Photoshop. I would eventually like to be able to do book cover, game and movie-style work in Photoshop as well as sequential art. I am hoping to upgrade to Adobe CS4 very soon.

This piece was done without a prior pencil drawing scanned in. I created it from Wacom tablet scratch in Photoshop. This architectural detail, a smallish watchtower in a castle-like complex, has a "post-modernish" feel to it. Maybe a bit of homage to neoclassical architect Robert A.M. Stern.

If any of you handful of faithful viewers are interested in seeing more of something art-wise from me, I invite you to speak up in the comments.

More real (hand done) art, less computer (digital) stuff! LOL, well you SAID tell you want we want.

Actually, please keep up with a variety of your efforts. While it is not my place to put fences around what you do, I do want to encourage you to follow your personal goals. Keep sharing it with us!

Tristan, I'll be working in all media, so you won't lack for "real art" by me. One of these days I'll post something and you won't know whether it is digital or "real" media! I want to do fantasy art in digital media not only because that's the most popular these days, but also because I won't have lots of unsold art taking up space in my cluttered quarters. Just on a hard drive.

Meowhair, first of all, thanks for commenting, I'd love to know what your "mission" is.
