Busy as a bee

April 11th, 2010 by admin | Posted in Early Photoshop attempts, Into a Fantasy World, Photoshop Experiments, Romantic Art, Sci - Fi   No Comments »

Hello, I have been working over the Easter holidays for my job and not pleasure

but I have learned loads more techniques in Photoshop because of it so it’s not all bad.

You won’t want me to bore you with the brochures I have done so how about

I add a few images I have made for fun over the last few months…..

The first three were completed last year.

All the faces are computer generated.  This way I don’t have to pay a model……ha !

 Because they are spiritual beings rather than physical ones I allowed them not to

have any physical flaws. I am not a fan of computer generated ‘perfect’ women

in magazines as it gives us ‘human’ women unrealistic ideals, but in fantasy art it is acceptable.

I hope these images make up for me not posting any new art for a while.

Love Grows

December 28th, 2009 by admin | Posted in Into a Fantasy World, Romantic Art   No Comments »

Sorry I haven’t blogged for a while but I have been busy over Christmas with the family as I am sure

you all have too. This is an image I did when I had a few quiet moments.

I altered a white background to black and cropped a colour photo of a man and changed

it into black and white, then pasted an image of a rose and used a flower brush tool

to add the tattoo onto the man’s back. A bit of smudging and highlights and shadows

and this was the result.

It was very close to the image I had in my head at the start.

let me know what you think.

Hope you had a great Christmas and I wish you all a very Happy New Year.

Zero the hero – ine!

October 19th, 2009 by admin | Posted in Competition Entries, Movies, Sci - Fi   1 Comment »

Hello! This October ‘O’ or ‘Zero’ was created.

Zero is a character I have made for the new ’9′ film Elfwood competition .

Zero is unique. She is a child . Always loud, brash and the naughtiest of the rag dolls , Zero often ends

up down in the dumps, head in hand with an anguished cry of ‘it’s not fair!!’.

Occasionally she pins her safety pin ears together across her face in a sulk.

But she is also very sensitive and cute.

 - I’m looking forward to viewing the other

entries.

Lipstick Lady

I thought I’d show you my most recent experiment.

The original image is from ‘Lying is legal’ at Deviant Art

Here is the link  to it: http://fav.me/d15dtfe

I cleaned up the image, changed the background to black and added some

flowers. My inspiration was Pre-Raphaelite Art.

I am actually pleased with what I achieved for a change.

Let me know your thoughts.

Martian Landscape

July 26th, 2009 by admin | Posted in Into a Fantasy World, Sci - Fi   6 Comments »

For July I thought I would go topical.

Images of the Moon Landing are everywhere right now so

I went to Mars to take some photos instead.

And yes, all the rumours are true…………it’s not pants!

Seriously, if I can do this in a few minutes what can Warner Bros do in a NASA studio

with a trillion budget?

The Fairy Frog

June 26th, 2009 by admin | Posted in Away with the Fairies, Early Photoshop attempts, Into a Fantasy World   2 Comments »

Hello, It’s  June and the weather is great so far in Britain…

The month to see Frolicking Fox Cubs, Froglets and Toadlets, Speckled

Wood Butterflies, Elderflowers and Grasses etc….

 

I bet you thought I’d do a picture of a Butterfly. Well I almost did

but because of the number of Frogs I have seen in my garden I

have made a Digital Artwork of a Frog and a little girl;

fairy-frog

       ’ The Fairy Frog’ – Digital Art by Tiana Fair – June 2009

Sorry I haven’t posted for ages because I have been called upon to use my

new Photo-shopping skills at work. I have been making brochures and designing

logos etc… It may sound boring but it does help me to learn how to use

Photo-shop just by the trial and error technique that I am so good at…hee hee!

Thanks for reading my blog, please leave a comment , if you have any suggestions

on how I can improve my fantasy techniques (without spending too much money)

please let me know (and I’ll let all you lot in on the secrets as I find them out….lol)

Take care,

The MayFairy

May 10th, 2009 by admin | Posted in Away with the Fairies, Early Photoshop attempts, Into a Fantasy World   No Comments »

May is the month when the Nightingales sing (if you are lucky enough to hear them these days.)

It is also the month when Catkins dangle from branches like earings.

The door to Fairyland opens on May 1st.

So I had to sneak one in the picture…….

Badger and the Bluebells

April 25th, 2009 by admin | Posted in Away with the Fairies, Early Photoshop attempts, Into a Fantasy World   2 Comments »

This is my latest Digital painting for April.

Tis the season of Bluebells and Badgers so why not put them both together.

I found a stock image of a  baby Badger and a field of Bluebells and with a lot of

Photoshop fiddling and artistic licence this is the result…

I hope you like it.

The Mad March Hare

April 3rd, 2009 by admin | Posted in Away with the Fairies, Hand to Digital painting, Into a Fantasy World, Photoshop Experiments   3 Comments »

 

I have just completed an Easter painting for my kids.

Spring is the season when the female Hares

have boxing matches with their male admirers.

But in this painting the Hare is called ‘The Mad March Hare’

because it tells everyone it has seen a fairy and no one believes it.

That is until some children come along who can also see the

pretty little Fairy.

(That’s a shortened version of the story I made up to go with the painting

for my kids.)

Before I show the finished painting here is a painting of a Fairy on a cat’s

head that I did last year in Watercolour paints so that you can compare

between real paints and digital Art.

I welcome your opinion.

Thanks for reading my blog, see you soon,

Experimenting

(Digitally enhanced version)                              (Original Acrylic painting by Tiana Fair)

 

I am experimenting with Photoshop.

I like the way it can blend and highlight but I personally prefer

the texture of acrylic paints on real canvas.

Let me know what you think.

 

I used to sell original commissioned paintings for a high price

and then sell poster prints and prints onto real canvas at a cheaper price.

The prints were more popular than the originals which has resulted

in me experimenting with digital art,

for if the customers want prints

more than originals it does not matter if it is made from paint or

from computer technology……anyway back to playing with my new toy…

can’t wait for the pen to arrive….

and yes I did go for the cheapest pen and tablet….

I’m not spending a lot of money on something

that I may be no good at.

 

Have a great day following your dreams…Tiana x
