Layers – Digital Art using Photo Editors

Layers, created using Photo Editors

I wanted to call this “Stairway to Heaven” but it was a tad over dramatic and my friends might go “What?”  So, “Layers” it is.

I created Layers using Photoscape, which is a free photo editing software.  It was so much fan using different filters such as distort, cellophane, newsprint and glasstile, to create the different designs below.


Townhouses – Digital Art using Photo Editors

Townhouses – Digital Art, by mzrosie

This digital art was created using free online photo editors.  I wanted to call it “Townhouses in a quiet neighborhood with trees in the background on a slightly cloudy day.”  But, I thought it was a tad too long.  So, I called it “Townhouses” instead.


Cherry using Microsoft Fresh Paint

Cherry is my third painting using Microsoft Fresh Paint.  I used a little photo editing with the help of Photoscape to create the shadow effect.  It took me three days to do this as it was difficult for me (as a wanna-be painter) to create the 2-D effect.  It was more difficult than I thought, specially since I am just using the mouse for my brush.

I have ordered a Sensu Brush and Stylus from Amazon.  It cost CDN$61.11 (cost plus delivery).   That’s a lot of money for a brush.  It better be worth it.

The is my second painting created with Microsoft Paint.  I was going to call it A Tree because there is only one tree, but Landscape seems more fitting.  It is so simple; it actually looks nice.  Maybe you don’t think so.. but for me, it is a masterpiece.  lol

I just discovered Microsoft Fresh Paint.  Hallelujah!  It is even better than Microsoft Paint.  It’s like real life painting experience.  So realistic.   The paint in Fresh Paint actually felt like I had a palette and easel in front of me.  I could blend and mix colors to get specific shades I chose and the app has lots of editing options.

The Red Flowers is my first try.  I still have a lot to learn.  And learn I will.. you’ll see.


Purple Tulip using Microsoft Paint

It is a tulip!  It is a purple tulip.  I love tulips and, in my opinion, a tulip is the easiest flower to draw using Microsoft Paint.  I really believe I am getting better, don’t you think?

You are probably wondering by now, why on earth would I be doing art when obviously I am not an artist?  Well, I am a wanna-be-artist, ok?  But I don’t want to spend money buying paints, pencils, canvasses and whatnots, and then one day, just put them away with all my other projects that are hidden in my closet.  Stay away from that closet!  Don’t even think about it.

Well, don’t you think my purple tulip is pretty?  It is so.
