Non-Photo Based Art

Hi everyone,

This is actually my first thread so I really don't know what I'm doing. I was wondering if anyone has attempted non-photo based art using programs such as Photoshop or PSP. I've attached (or attempted to attach) one of my more recent attempts at creating artwork from scratch (no photos, no photo-refereces, no found textures) Only Photoshop and limited illustrator work. It would be nice to see other examples of this sort of work.

very nice, goose!

yes, there is a forum in the main Studio forum that i believe is devoted to 'from scratch' work. and i believe the gallery has some examples also.

Hi goose443


Great work. I just think you should have made the ornament a little sharper and the loose pine needles. The floor is well done did you use the Fiber filter in PS CS?

This would make a great tutorial !

Here's my first piece I did using no photos and all created in PS CS.

Thanks for the comments Snowdog. I think the compression affected the sharpness a little though I'm not trying to make excuses. No Fiber filter since I was working in Photoshop 7 (pre-fiber) I just used noise and motion blur (good ol'noise and blur) you can do just about anything with it.

Fun...

That's great man. I'm a photog so the scratch stuff is wicked in my book. I dig the reflectons, plug, wall paper etc. The pine needles don't bother me, but I think the hook for the bulb is a bit too thin as is the part on the bulb where the hook goes. Just a hair thicker on the wire that's all.

Simply awesome, Goose. Bert Monroy quality.

I can't even imagine going there, myself. You've got skills that most people can't imagine.

Thanks guys. Your comments inspire me to do more of this stuff. I'll take another look at the hook. It probably could use a little more weight. Thanks!

Here's a really old one. Also no references.

Hey Danny,

I looked up Bert Monroy and it turns out I have a piece in much the same style as his stuff (his stuff is incredible by the way). I posted it in another thread here:

http://www.retouchpro.com/forums/doodles/1374-ps-graphics-starting-scratch.html

but I not sure how to link to to this one.

In any case, thanks for the comments. I'm just trying to push myself and the programs to see how far they can go... as I'm sure just about everyone at RTP is.
