|copyright L.Ciacco, Pigeon English, digital art from an original photograph|
I was playing with a photo today in Photoshop, thinking I would post it on Décolleté, my "home and away" blog. But when a simple photo turns into something a bit more complex, thanks to brushes and textures and layers and modes, it crosses boundaries and transmogrifies from a photograph into a piece of digital art.
So I'm doing a cross-over posting here..."re-gifting"as it were, especially as it seems that visitors to this, my art blog, don't tend to peer down my Décolleté blog. Maybe some time I'll have to put all my eggs in one basket, or all my pigeons in one pie.
This little piece of digital art started out as a not-very-good photo of some pigeons sitting on a gate top in Montreal's Chinatown. I used several brushes and textures graciously offered for free by Shadowhouse Creations to help in the transmogrification of the original picture.
