GOD CREATES THE EARTH - I'm spiritual but not religious. Anyway these are digital lens flares and a digital nimbus superimposed over an acrylic painting of my model Linda and a painting of the Earth I did. When I first got my old version of Photoshop, I never really used it the way it is supposed to be used....still don't. But I became enamored with the tools for creating special effects and immediately went "lens flare" happy on this thing. This was done around 2006 and I've found a LOT of stuff I was doing back then had lens flares in 'em cause I thought they were neat.
Now I use Photoshop mostly to increase the color and push the contrast to create a more intense look for uploading into digital galleries and to send to publishers. All I really use is my overhead projector....maybe they'll bury it with me.
Oh and yeah, God's a girl here....take THAT, religious right!!!!
(What a rebellious little fart I am!!!)...
