Hello

Hello everyone,

New to the site but looking forward to learning from you all.

Have been an architectural retoucher for the last 2 years. Give me a shout if you have any questions about building retouches, I will help if I can.

I also enjoy creating digital art and have done so for many years.

Easy now

Scoopex

Re: Hello

No problem Palms. As I said I will be happy to help where I can.

As for the digital art, I just gave my http://scoopex.deviantart.com/ page a spring clean. Its been long overdue for a while now. There is a little of my older work on there and few bits that are new. Will be posting more as and when I get the chance to do some.

Hope you like

Scoopex

Re: Hello

Tee hee Palms, thats just a few of the heavier ones.

Believe it on not I have a very varied taste in music. My favourite recording artist would have to be Nina Simone, so maybe this is a little more up your street? What do you like to listen to?? I like abit of everything, so long as its well written and performed, and not just one of these manufactured groups. I've actually been listening to a lot of Mashups recently, I like them because they blend together different music a little like we blend together pictures.

Glad you found my work interesting, like I said some old stuff, some new. I do it for my own entertainment, mostly just to play with photoshop and try out new techniques.

Re: Hello

Scoopex i too have a varied taste in music although not jazz (yuk) at the moment i am in to the "k"'s with the top one being Killers , Kaiser chiefs and then Keane, but if i act my age it is more meatloaf, bon jovi with a bit of tamla thrown in for chilling out

like you i enjoy working on different techniques and different styles although i tend to play a bit safe, breaking out of my "box " at odd moments which is where i like looking at work like yours for some inspiration

Re: Hello

All good bands with their own merits. Might I suggest Kubichek as an additional K band that you may like. Not as well know as the others but still not half bad.

Now if we're talking Motown, I would probably have gone with the Four Tops, Marvin Gaye or maybe a little Jackie Wilson.

Either way its all good!!!

Re: Hello

No problem at all. I'm always game for talking music. Although I have never really got into Al Green, I know of him but I haven't listened to much of his music.

Should I take it on recomendation to try some of his music?

if you can get the best of Al Green play it at night time with a glass of wine etc , and chill out ! !
