Digital painting is an experience very unlike traditional painting styles. It allows one to reach forth into the unlimited possibility that computers have enabled for us; not limited by material, or medium, or scale. It allows an artist to spill fourth their imagination directly onto a screen. With the powerful tools created by software geniuses; artists and designers can now reach far beyond on the limitations of the physical world, we can create things never before imagined in never before actualized ways.
When you look around at the world what do you see?
Do you see solid shapes and forms that seem to be in a fixed state of existance?
I would think the answer is yes, because that is how we are meant to percieve the world with our human eyes. But this is only an illusion, the world is not made up of solid forms. It is made up of an infinite number of tiny worlds coming together to create the one that we perceive.
That is the concept behind this style, it is the desire to convey that sense that we are all made of smaller parts coming together to create the whole. This way of creating an illustration holds so much beauty because of its desire to show the world in a more truthful light. It allows individual colours to shine through while still maintaining integrity to the larger composition.
Photography is the art of transmuting the visions of an individual into a form that renders it viewable to all. It is the ability to freeze time and distill the infinite complexities of the seen world into a single and powerful frame. Combining the lenses and mirrors of a camera with powerful editing tools allows the creation of mind-bending images that leave an imprint in the mind of any viewer.
To capture a powerful photo one must have the gift of seeing. This is not the same as passively looking. The difference between seeing and looking is as profound as the difference between hearing and truly listening. It is my goal on this page to allow you into my mind and see as I see.
When I gaze upon the world and it reflects back to me a sight that screams to be shared, I work with the tools accessible to me to capture that light and bend it to my will to communicate any idea that I desire.
