Abstract Art With No Name


2013-08-28-01_abstract

Here is an abstract art painting I did in ArtRage this morning. It was a great exercise in learning how to outline elements and in stippling. I was trying to achieve a somewhat grunge effect with the stippling on the background layer. I think I did that… sort of lol. The scratch marks were kind of an accidental discovery. As I was tapping my drawing tablet to produce dots I discovered that when you start going fast in the process, the drawing pen tends to slip here and there causing scratch marks which I actually thought was cool, so I kept going. I think I spent about an hour just doing the stippling. Painting and outlining the “blobs” took about half as long and I love the bold colors outlined in white. I think I’m gonna do another similar art piece at some point with circles or squares instead of random blobs, although I think the blobs look cool.

Sunrise At Cherry Blossom Hill

I made two versions of this new painting I did in ArtRage. The first image is how the original piece looks, and the second one has a different background variation. This is the first real art piece I have done that involved working with layers. It took me quite a few hours to paint this. I painted the original piece on a 2400X3000 pixel (8×10 print size) at 300DPI so that I can send the image in to be printed. I’m interested to see how that will turn out and I will post a photo of the actual photo print in a later post if I do get it printed. πŸ™‚

I should mention that this is a product of “I don’t know what the hell I’m doing but I’m just gonna go with it and see what happens”. πŸ™‚ You gotta learn somehow right!!?

UPDATE: I have placed an order for a test print of both versions of this art piece. I will hopefully pick them in a day or two and see how they come out.

Waking Up Mandala


chillmosa_mandala_2013-08-27

I sat down at my computer desk this morning and began to play around with the new Sumo Paint program I was able to download from my Wacom Bamboo Dock (thanks wacom) and discovered it has a symmetry tool in it which allows you to paint at multiple symmetric points on your canvas. My first thought was wow, I can draw real mandalas with this, and so I did. I spent abut an hour I think working on this while waking up, which is why I call it “Waking Up Mandala”. πŸ™‚

My First Try At Tracing With Wacom Bamboo Splash


first_trace_sketch_small

I just recently bought a new drawing tablet. I got the Wacom Bamboo Splash. With it came a bundled software called Artrage. Artrage has a tracing feature which allows you to sketch over an image to create a drawing. I cannot tell you how much I love having that feature. I would have never been able to draw this on my own…. or maybe I could but it wouldn’t look as cool. I will be trying this out a lot more again but may not be posting many tracing pieces on this blog unless I am using my own original photographs to trace from. This was just something done for fun.

Frosted Glass Hurricane #2


fg_hurricane_0002

I am so thrilled with the end result of this abstract art piece. This is the second image in a series I’m calling “frosted glass hurricanes”. It certainly is a unique evolvement from the first one I showed off in my Hello World blog post. As I was creating this I came up with a few ideas to further evolve this series. I hope you enjoy this piece of art as much as I enjoyed creating it. πŸ™‚

Hello World!!


Welcome to my new art blog at chillmosa.wordpress.com where I will be posting my original digital art images as I create them.

What is “chillmosa” you may ask. The name evolves from how I describe my art. I call it chill out art or chill time art that I create when I’m bored or just in a quite mood. I love creating mosaics and digital filter abstract art. So with the keywords “chill out” and “mosaics” I came up with “chillmosa”.

Below are two recent art pieces I have done and included in this post to give you an idea of the type of digital art I like to do and will be posting more of as time goes on.

mosaic_demo

This one is a random mulicolor mosaic image in which colors were randomly picked and images of strips of blocks were created and then pieced together in one large mosaic image. I am a person who loves randomness in my creativity, so this is a really fun art form for me. I never know how the piece is going to turn out until I put all the parts together, and with endless colors to choose from, there’s no end to the possibilities.

frostedglassart_demo

This is one of my frosted glass digital art pieces. This was done by painting some colors in photoshop on a blank image and then simply using the frosted glass distortion filter to make it look as if you are looking through a bumpy shower glass. It’s a very simple, and quick, but very stunning (I think) way of creating a spectacular, and somewhat psychedelic piece of art.

Well there you have it. I’ll be posting more art pieces as I go along creating them. I invite you to follow my blog and thanks for checking it out. πŸ™‚
