Playing with ideas...


This combined two sketches that I worked on a few days ago. The floral motif was mirrored and joined at the horizontal center then embossed in photoshop. Then I floated in the figure sketch (it got kind of Frazetta-y). I get a kick out of playing with unfamiliar effects filters and see where they may come in handy later.

John, you need to clean up your comment spam.

Also, I think this would look great etched into a silver bullion bar.


Bullion bar? I was thinking on the tailgate of my truck......but I'd probably get arrested!

Dr. Bob:

That's some pretty good playing, John.

Daaaammmm howd you get that layout yo! its FREESSHH!!

Having reading this blog i realize it was helpful in so many ways. Genius!

yes I agree with you! this shouldn't be too in your exposure, it's just a comment that supports the need to further increase the motivation to work more and more creative spirit.

I really whenever you discuss the sort stuff in your posts. Perhaps could you continue this?

Hi there, I uncovered your site via Yahoo while searching for a related subject, your website came up, it looks fantastic. I have book-marked it in my google book marks.

The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod's. It works well, but isn't as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that's not an issue, but if you're planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod's larger screen and better browser may be important.

I would like to recommend anyone studying this to view the comments above complimenting this post to indicate how unnecesarry it will possibly be.
