This is my first official tutorial on this blog! Rather than show you a step-by-step on how a final image is made, I’ll share tricks that I’ve learned along the way.
First, import through a scanner a mark/texture/drawing of your choice into Photoshop. You can also use the quick one I made…
‘Ophiuchus’ for Gallery Nucleus’ ‘Yesterday’s Tomorrow’
The new zodiac symbol, constellation Ophiuchus, the man wrestling with the serpent. It’s a metaphor for our constant struggle with knowledge and the unknown.
The show is about retro futurism of the 50’s and 60’s. It’s interesting to see these wild things we though would happen and how they would look in comparison to where we ended up.
Yet another show I’m in with so many talented artists! Check it out on June 29th at Gallery Nucleus. You can find more info on the show here.
Can I get a red head cosmonaut on my wall next to my red head warriors?
Me looking especially broody while waiting for a fight at the fighter auction at Rowany festival this Easter. I went for surprisingly high and died valiantly for my step fathers’ honour, who would not let himself be outbid by someone who wanted a lady fighting for them.
My kit is finally all together! I’m amazed I look so serious in this photo, I’m usually grinning like a lunatic and chatting to everyone in between fights.
PS, I am all the sweaty!
Especially this one.
Seeing this photo amazes me, because I don’t see myself this way. Sometimes it’s really beautiful what a photographer captures of you.
Also, armour is sexy. I miss fighting really bad.
(I don’t know what I’ve done to deserve all your love this week but thank you so much everyone. You’ve made this tough time easier and you all make me smile and a little teary. <3)
I think I’m in love….. with all this girls’ life choices.
