Take a Word: Wings


This piece is a hybrid of digital and hands-on art. I created the basic sketch of the woman on my new iPad (yay!) in Sketchbook Express, as well as the abstract pattern for the wings. I then combined, altered and embellished the images in Photoshop Elements. The curtains are from holliewood studios, the background lettering behind the curtain from graphicsfairy, and the handwriting image overlaying the curtains is an obsidian dawn digital brush.

Doesn't she look like she's wondering where to fly today? Far away from the approaching storm, I would imagine. Take care, everyone in the U.S. who might be affected. Here in Maryland we're getting ready and hoping for the best...
