"I work principally with Photoshop, Painter and Illustrator, and my input devices are a high resolution scanner and a Wacom tablet. As I begin work on a new piece I make decisions about which elements are already in my archives and which will have to be created new. If new elements have to be created I might sketch the piece on paper and scan it in, or I might begin working in a Painter or Illustrator file using my Wacom tablet, or I might grab an old digital file and begin manipulating the element directly in Photoshop." This is an art both wondrous and gloriously playful.
I found her explanation of how she creates her art very interesting. It gave me a great idea to start my own dream sketch journal. I love this picture, is it a smile face or two birds looking down at a feather. At first I went right past this picture then I came back to it and examined it slowly and knew it had to be my final piece!
Hope you enjoyed this experience.... You have learned much about Web 2.0 power in taking this class.... the ability to create and post visual content, not only for your peers, but for the world to see both on the blog and in fotothing is a very powerful step forward.
I enjoyed working with you... and hope to see you in another class online in the future!

Ansgard Thomson was born in a part of Germany in 1923 that is now Poland. Her first art education classes were in her high school in Germany. Her formal instruction in the arts took placfrom 1980 to 1993 at the University of Alberta. She started using the computer as a media in 1993 and was attracted by the many new programs she found on the internet which allowed her to explore the differences as well as the similarities to the natural way of making art. Her aim was to produce 2D works in the new media without scanning any of her traditional paintings. I pulled her for this week because this set of paintings was all done using Apophysis. I particulary like the golden color one on the left, but the one on the right she has in her living room in Canada as a blown up wall hanging.

The second try at the fractal design is in the middle and I truly enjoyed designing this piece and changing over the color patterns using the randomized color and layer selections.
Here is my initial try at the fractal design. This was the hardest project I had to work on because for some reason my computer was only modifying one area of the fractal.
The artist I chose for Week 6 is Anton Kirchner who was born in Germany and began drawing at the age of 5. He is a software engineer but creating art is his side project. He believes that his work is under the influence of several objectives including the addition of cubist partitioning into the components of the images.

The artist that I picked this week is Thomas Demuth, He uses 3d software to create his work that is to create photo-abtracts images. This pictures is very insteresting to me, 3d images are my favorite because you can create whatever you want in different angles the way you want it. In this picture i think of people eating dinner together and they all look the same.
Better luck with Grappa I hope.
I liked this application, but it was frustrating at the same time because I wanted to do more with it than just manipulating mouse movements. I also didnt like how the line would follow your mouse offscreen so while i created something I liked that was all in the center of the picutre, there was this line going from the center offscreen. I think I will have to play with it more, but I like the ones I saved. Above are "Snake" and "French Horn".

He offers: "I have drawn comic books and book illustrations, as well as graphic art, and I am continually searching for, and experimenting with, new techniques. I have never attended art school, so I am self-taught. I have become deeply interested in digital art."

This work is done by Ciro Marchetti from Great Britain. He did a lot of work on astronomical themes. Ciro uses photoshop for a lot of his works, that helps to reflect all the imagination he has. He uses different mixture of colors and layers to come up with the final idea. Ciro's art has won a number of prizes at MacWorld competitions. I liked it because it seems for me very clear and bright.
I have finally suceeded in making my first apophysis and I have had so much fun with this assignment. I am so glad to be back on track as well. I value any and all opinions and feedback. I love how there are so many different diverse options to choose from in the apophysis frames.

The artist that I selected for this week is Oliver Gili who is from England. Prior to editing his work in adobe photoshop, he uses acrylic and oils to create his artwork and then scans it into his computer. He has exhibited at galleries in his hometown, as well as showing his work via projectors in local eateries, pubs and clubs. Oliver Gili states that "he draws upon the techniques of post-impressionism, the artificial realities of computer game graphics and the intensity of stained glass. Mr. Gili can also be reached via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Hello everyone, I am sorry for the absence was a little under the weather and am finally regaining my strength and energy.
The artist that I selected for Week 4 is Regina Lafay. At just the age of 19 she began to experiment with painting on top of her prints prior to discovering Adobe photoshop. Her artwork can be seen in various movies, magazines and as tattoo prints on individuals. Her artwork is a healing vessel to those who have experienced abuse or suffer from mental illness.

This assigment was a lot of fun, it seems like it would be something really easy at the same time hard to create but for me it was very hard. I have a lop top that does not have a regular mouse, so in order to get this kind of pictures done I had to try a million times so it would look like there were swirls. This is an amazing tool to use this pictures look so amazing and is only by a touch of one tool. I really enjoyed working oni this assigment.
