Young musicians

Young musicians having some fun.

Baby drummer. Part of my Young musicians collection. A cute and clever way to add shild-like sketches to your childrens photos.New ideas refresh my love for art and photography and these Young musicians are going into my ever increasing list of things I can offer the public. These seemingly easy sketches on photographs are much more complicated than you the viewer can see. The hardest part, believe it or not, is to draw as an infant would draw something but keeping that cuteness working with the photo.
Finding a photo where the subject can be used for this technique was a little tiresome, though that is because I was searching for images on the net. Once you see and like this idea I am sure it would be a short task to find a photo where your baby could be chatting over the fence or playing the trombone.
The young drummer here was originally a modelling photo where she was just enjoying her new clothes. Just a tiny bit of imagination puts drumsticks in her hands and a set of drums for her to bash away at. It looks great, looks cool, and looks very, very cute.
Young musicians are created from any photo you may have of your baby or infant. I remove the background, work a little magic, then give them the chance to make some loud music. I have priced these lovely photos at just £6.00 because it is likely you may want more than one. If you would like say three children in one photo my guess would be around £10.00. If you have a large family and would like an orchestra you maybe best contacting me for a quote 🙂
These photos and more will be posted in my Photo Fun page and also at my Facebook page.

3D effect on Galleon

3D effect on an original drawing by Ramon Bruin.

This 3D image of a galleon was an original sketch by a guy called Ramon Bruin. He’s a fascinating chap that sketches on three sheets of a4 paper and almost brings his drawings to life, you will have to click the link to see what I mean. The galleon was not sketched particularly well and if you look carefully there are plenty of errors that he’s made whilst executing his 3D effect. He has a great imagination though and has the ability to put his ideas into practical use.
The Galleon sketch he made was quite striking and reminded me of the technique I use to make my Photo Fun pictures that you can view in my gallery here. Just like Ramon Bruin’s sketches, my photos aren’t meant to be taken seriously but they look pretty good and I get a lot of requests to do these for other people.
I’m currently working out how to make 2D paper cut-outs of people and objects then sticking them into a 3D environment but I haven’t quite got it yet. Perhaps you don’t even know what I’m talking about but I am sure it will look great in the end.
So anyway, this photo you are looking at is my humble attempt to bring more life into Ramon Bruin’s  3D Galleon using my own techniques as I have mentioned earlier. I was really tempted to correct his sketching errors but thought it best to keep it simple. After all, my idea is to make a flat picture look 3D so changing things might be kind of cheating. Hope you like it and if you have anything similar that you would want to use my skills with just let me know. You can post in this blog or maybe go over to my Facebook page and comment there.

Photoshop Text Fun

Photoshop Fun with face text.

Not quite as simple as it may look to some budding Photoshoppers but you can have some great fun doing these.
Both these examples are from ordinary photos with the contrast bumped up a little so the effect can work to it’s best. Without getting technical about it I basically use a subject photo, add text with different layers, do a little masking and then remove the original photo. So what you see here is not really a photo but just lots of coloured text, kinda.
You want some Photoshop Fun? They are very striking and I can do this with any kind of photo subject and use any words of your choice. I guess it would work with buildings like your business or shop and would easily work with single objects like a car or boat. So what’s the cost of this fine work of Photoshop face text art? £6.00 for one and £4.00 each for more than one, simple as that.

Paint Pot Head.

Photoshop Paint pot head.

I got this idea from seeing a head that was photoshopped to look like a boiled egg cracked open. That was great but there was so many versions of that I just had to come up with my own idea. What to do mmmmm? Ok lets do a head that incorporates a paint pot maybe with the paint dribbling down the face 🙂 My Paint pot head does the trick and has shocked many viewers so perhaps I will choose the colours a little more wisely next time. I didn’t get any bad reviews but almost everyone thought I was emulating blood, it honestly never occurred to me and with it being quite realistic I guess they were right. Regardless of subject, in the future I need to sit back and do some lateral thinking before I publish anything that might just make you squeal.
I love doing these creative things, especially when they turn out looking great. If you want to see more go to my Photo Fun page, plenty of photoshopped stuff there.
