Digital Artwork – Some more baby steps

I did some digital painting in Adobe Photoshop CS3 long ago and then somehow it took a backseat First Steps with Photoshop  .

Life is getting settled now and the major part of the turbulence is over. Now that I am more composed and focused I decided to play with forms and colors again, to experiment with shapes and give a new horizon to my imagination. Here is the first lot of what I did in last few weeks.  All the work here is copyrighted..© tikuli

Blue – Photo Theme for Thursday

This time the theme is  ” Blue ”  (Water, Sky, Vehicles, Houses, Flowers,…) and I thought one must find something unusual. Lights have a magical effect and one can do a  lot with them. Posting one photograph of blue lights wrapped on a hockey stick and inserted in a flower vase. The picture was taken on X-Mas night.

Another od my favorite is the blue smoky flame of cue de cologne burning . The lovely flames are a joy to watch and click. I am still learning to capture the fluid movement of the flame.

and let me end the post with yet another brilliant blue from my photoshop work done long time back. I am itching to get my laptop reformatted and then download the software to create magic.  Just learning to turn dreams into digital paintings.


Blue is a sensational color, a color of calmness and serenity and also of sadness and aloofness. A color of contrast , of ocean and sky. Blue is the color of the Throat Chakra, also known as Visuddha. A deeper blue symbolizes a mystical borderland of wisdom, self-mastery, and spiritual realization. It is the least gender specific color.

The blue ribbon has been widely recognized as a national symbol of child abuse awareness.

First Steps in Photoshop- Some Digital Art

I have been wary of words and not able to write anything worthwhile for sometime. The absence of my muse or maybe a writer’s block, I don’t know what.

Sometime my body refuses to respond to my spirit and lack of energy takes a toll on my creativity. I have been a little disconnected with myself and slowly trying to get back to what I am. Trying to discover new paths , new dimensions, new openings for my soul.

Adi, my elder one, suggested I learn Photo Shop and as he is doing animation and visual graphics , I decided to give it a try. I love colors and it’s been ages since I flirted with paints and crayons or even sketched.

The world of digital art is amazing and as I explore the hidden treasures of PS and its boundless possibilities I feel happy I took those baby steps in this direction. It is a new experience for me and I would surely want to master this art.

Sharing with you some of the work I have done so far. My FB friends may have seen these pictures in my album but still posting all of my work here.

Some day I hope I will be able to merge the colors of my creativity and my life and create a whole new wonder for myself till then I am just a student..
