MY COMMENTS:
Trying to make it look like a splash of paint.
Inspired by a "Mike Rutherford album: Smallcreep's Day" but the subject matter is entirely different, as is my treatment.

More photoshop creativity than anything else, but it is my first try.

MY QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP:
Any comments welcome as I'm just straing out in this field...

Welcome wigwam !
It's hard for me to comment or critique as I'm not very familiar with digital paintings or illustration. I'll just suggest that the darks are very dark and some tonal changes of the background could make it more playful ...
Have you shown it in the digital forum as well ?

Oh I really like this design...it does have a torn/collage look to it -- not to mention green with yellow daisey flowers!! :D

Here are 2 closeups from my largest jpeg file. (The original psd file is "securely" stored on a CD somewhere!)

Thanks for your comments. I'm inspired to make more digital art now. :D

Interesting effect - what processes did you go through to achieve it? You should post this on the digial forum too - they are a friendly bunch over there.

My apologies Andrew, personal family illness has kept me away fr some time.
I used a combination of filters (rendering clouds etc) and layer effects to break up the image, then applied a bog-standard drop shadow and wet look.

If I were to do it again, I would use different techniques as I now have Photoshop CS and then only had version 6.
