Beautiful Doom

Several weeks ago, HDR Photography Guru, Trey Ratcliff came to my house to talk about photography and stuff, and somewhere in the mix of all of the Photoshop talk, he asked where my pen tablet was.

I said, "Oh...umm...I keep it at Best-Buy, on the shelf with the others...so it doesn't get lonely".

Actually, I never really had a good reason to NOT own one, and it only took Trey about a minute to convince me to reconsider. On the following day, I bought an Intuos4...and after a couple of weeks, my cursing became less-frequent, the learning curve leveled-out a bit, and it felt comfortable to use...and, of course, I cannot tell you how many times I wanted to kick myself for not doing this sooner.

There is an entirely new dimension (albeit, in its infancy) in my work, now. This image started-off as a Pen Tablet Experiment/Playground...and this is what it became.

Thanks, Trey :)

The photo of the model (that I took several years ago) is the only "real" thing in this composite image. The entire background, her hair, and parts of her dress were done with the Intuos4.

Tutorial videos of my post-production and Photoshop techniques are available now at: www.ibarra2.com

This ''unreal'' background seems alive. The movement in her hair and her red mysterious dress suits very well with the ''tornado'', it makes beautiful harmony..And the composition is good too, I don't need to tell you why.. I think it's my favorite image from your work

Lots of opinions about tablets, and they still all boil down to (for those who discover they need them) what you said: Why did I wait this long?

It is time for me to upgrade. I purchased lower end for my first, and did so based on advice from artist friends (as you did). Upgrade time is both because I need the additional sensitivity/features and because I think the old one is showing signs of wearing out.

And... Really Nice Image. Really.
