Bloody Valentine Fresco by PauloCunha Bloody Valentine Fresco by PauloCunha
I applied the "fresco application" in photoshop to my coloured ballpoint drawing 'Bloody Valentine' I was just messing around and I liked the way this turned out.

lol...that's what can drive you crazy about digital..It's so easy to make dramatic changes you could never make otherwise ...it's easy to baffle yourself trying to figure out which one will be best recieved ..:laughing:...

I have to say in this case ...i think i like the original better ....altho i understand your fascination with this one ;) ....

ahhhhhhhh yes ...that ever elusive inspiration ....
...if it doesnt show up soon....pull your muse's pants down around her ankles and chase her through the rough ....That always works for me ~ Fangism

:nod: I hear ya! I prefer the original not only visually but emotionally as well due to the experience of the creative process which for me is spiritual in nature.:meditation:

So...spiritual = time spent ? ...lol ...

..try looking at instant, digital alterations as a speedy, drive-thru, absolutions window at a chruch....and maybe we can get some digital emotions happenin' for ya....;) ... lol

Good to see you producing again Paulo :thumbsup:...You rock !

I rather like the fresco effect - it makes the colours that bit richer, the original version is perfect as it is though.:)

Thanks Bernard! I find the original to be quite lacking in contrast also. It was never meant to be a drawing originaly, I had just purchased some new ballpoint pens and when I got home I decided to test the colours and all I had at hand was an old sheet of glossy photograph paper. Not a very ballpoint pen friendly surface..haha I started it almost a year ago and finally finished it last week...btw, I'm still working on our ECs and being back on DA has renewed my creative juices so I should have something in the mail for you soon...promise:)

Actually, I have some bad news...last night my wonderful 13 yr old daughter accidently knocked over my coffee mug and spilled coffee on the drawing that I was supposed to send you...:frustrated:....3 months work!!!:omfg:
Deborah suggested I send it to you anyways and that you might have fun doing something with the coffee stain....the splash pattern does present some interesting possibilities...The paper is 8"x11" with my half on the left and the stain starts from the left as a perfectly horizontal band about 4 cm wide extending across to the right dividing the upper and lower sections of the page perfectly in half and fans out about 11 cm from the left edge producing an explosive effect into the right half....it kind of looks like part of a forearm and wrist fanning out into a hand with misshapen fingers extending into the right half of the page...another interesting thing is that in the strip that would be exposed to you, you can see a matador facing the right and the splash is exploding out of his body....I still want to start a fresh one for you but what do you think? Should I send this one anyways?
