I just posted my first deviation. A self-portrait. It didn't really mean much at the time. It was mainly a way for me to see what I could do in Photoshop after having spent months working with other peoples ideas through any on-line and magazine tutorials that I could get my hands on.

It seems much more to me now. It's the longest time I've spent on one piece of art and so I have grown attached to it in some way. It's my first true digital artwork that I can call my own... I took the main photograph of myself next to a window on an overcast day with the Canon 550D that I have owned for about 3 months. I sourced (and bought when necessary) all of the other photographic content. I spent hours learning to use a wacom tablet through the process as well and, once it was finished, I could see a side of myself that I had never ever seen before.

My sub-conscious has finally found a way to communicate with me.

I have grown in the time (about 35 hrs and 70 layers of time) that it had taken to complete this work. I know I will continue to grow in this new and amazing way. How could I possibly stop now only having just found out???

I can finally hear myself and see what is in my mind with my true eyes and not just my minds eye... It's very biased you see. :)
  • Listening to: My children ask for stuff

Hell busy with life and being a dad for two of the most wonderful human beings I've ever had the pleasure of knowing.
