Dreams and Reality Might Collide…

This might not be a Photography post but it is a form of Art. Today the passion for drawing cliked in me and I wanted to sketch something. Well, this is what I come up with…

All I had is a pencil, watercolor paper (I know! I didn’t use any watercolors), and a water ink pen. I started drawing the tree then outlined it with the ink pen. I relaixed that I can get silhouette images for small birds like this (better than drawing them myself). Then I took my picture to Photoshop CS5. The black part of the tree was done by adding a black mask and overlaying a black color using Blending Options. I added the birds and made them completely black using the same mask idea. I added a texture and a quote to make it more live…I noticed the saying fits with the images…adding a story wouldn’t hurt. I played with the saturation, brightness, and vibrancy of the whole image. I also tended to make the picture colder than it originally was.  The nice thing that I didn’t really work a lot on texture, it came out blended nicely like this.

UPDATE: I noticed I spelled “Collide” wrong (what an embarrassment). Also, my Digital Arts teacher gave me lots of comments to fix this poster. Consider this blog post a draft to this artwork.

    • Thank you so much! There are many mistakes in it, and it needs a lot of fixing…I noticed the misspelling and those errors after posting it into the blog. I will post the final work when its done 🙂

  1. I absolutely LOVE this drawing. I feel it represents a lot of who I am and I how I feel.
    I am a yoga student and part-time yoga instructor and would like permission to use it as a backdrop for a powerpoint presentation about myself for my communications class. (I am working on my M.Ed in Kinesiology)

    Thank you for your consideration and for sharing this with us.

  2. Another question Diana, there is another version of this on the internet that is a black and white. Is it yours? The word collide is correct. I was just curious.
