The Photoshop Art Spa...



Do you ever wake up and thank the the ruling Gods beyond the clouds for the invention of Photoshop?

I do... and like ancient humble peasants of yore, I would gladly carry offerings of fruit and finery up the steps at sunrise... to the shrine of Photoshop, up into the clouds of mystery where the Gods of Photoshop gods live.

Luckily I only have to walk upstairs though. But all the same, I am eternally grateful for the invention of the Photoshop Art Spa, where my artwork can go on retreat to attain it's full measure of beauty.



The top is the 'after'... the bottom is the 'before'. And inbetween was all the fun...

Ah, now I see what you mean when you told me about changing around backgrounds. Really nice piece, John! I especially like those shadows, they really add atmosphere.

Thanks Paige... glad to hear you like it.

Yes, it is fun! And flexible too. I'm thinking of changing some of the details. And originally the background started out blue... but in Photoshop I fiddled around and noticed it worked with the rest of the page better in brown. So I decided to make it brown.

The flexibility of Photoshop is amazing...

How clever of you to make the shadows this way John! I would never have thought of it.
