Your collage for this week should incorporate the image or concept of ice, frost, snow, cold, winter, white, etc. (Brrrrr.) Your art can be realistic, whimsical, spooky, silly, or serious--whatever effect you'd like, as long as it makes us shiver with cold!
Here is my collage for this week.
The large swirly flower, the old man, and the penguins are from the weekly Dover freebies. The rest are my creations.
I used a method shown by Mark S. Johnson to make my freezing rain streaks. I used the pen tool to create the path along which the snow flakes are falling and used a brush star to follow the path. I also used the pen tool to create the path for the border of stars.
That's it for now.
Live life fully.
Welcome to EarlK Design!
The EarlK Design blog consists mainly of entries that show how to do things using Adobe Photoshop that I hope you will find helpful and give your creative mind more tools to work with.
I use Adobe Photoshop CS6, and sometimes Adobe Illustrator CS5, Lightroom 5, and Corel Painter X. However, I believe that much of what I show can be done using Photoshop Elements.
