Having fun posting on our new message board. I'm testing out loading images from my desk top. This is a piece I did awhile back for an Original Concepts I'm working on.

The image loads in a window with left to right and up to down scrolling. you can get rid of this and load the image in the viewer by clicking on the image.

It's not the most efficient way to share images but a great way to dynamically have your work seen!

I love our new board!

Here's some process. This one started really lose. I wasn't even trying to make a painting, I just started sketching in Photoshop, without a scan and liked my proportions. Cleaned it up a little then said, hey, finish this! Usually I start with a pencil sketch, I rarely go directly in Photoshop without one. But these days I do it more often and with more confidence.

I'm going through pieces to reproduce for my new Gallery in LA on Robertson and Pico. It's called Petra, pronounce the long E, not like the 80s glam band.lol anyways, I wanted to reproduce this one but something has been bugging me about it. It's an older piece but I like it and it just needed some tweaks...and wow, some slight face lift and she looks brand new. Mostly her lips. I never really liked her original ones. I liked the idea of it but I think these are better and I feel more confident about reproducing this for my Art Gallery opening. Now I can get back focusing on brand new pieces.

I COULDN'T HELP MYSELF! as I was tweaking this old image I just kept messing with it. I felt i lost her Mona Lisa smile with the last tweak, so I cut out her lips, used the Warp tool and gave her more of a smirk. Gives her more a mischievous look to her. Which creates more story. I also raised her right eye brow and softened her eye lid...adding glitter to her eye make up and pushed the color of her goggles while pulling back on the saturation of her skin tone...its amazing how all these little tweaks change a piece so much.

The one thing I noticed with uploading straight for your Hard Drive is the colors get a bit washed out. So maybe when I post next I need to push the contrast a little to help with the translation.

So it looks like I did it right this time. I didn't press the "Place Inline" button that appears after you upload an image. So make sure you press "Place Inline" when uploading an image from your desktop.
That way your image will show with out the side and up/down annoying scrollers.

Awesome. And thanks for posting the process. It's cool to see the progression. The blood spatter is a nice touch, like icing on the cake. :D
