This wonderful creature asked me to capture him for my artwork. He glanced at me and then walked up very slowly in front of me and then stared out across Lake Tarpon - located on the west coast of Florida.
Information about the artist, this image, and its creation: I am an old-school painter with several years of traditional experience. In recent years I (and many other artists), have developed their talent by using software to create digital art that is unique. The picture that is presented here, never existed in real life as a photograph captured by the lens of a camera. This image started with a composite of photos and digitally hand-painted images that were first layered in Photoshop. The final outcome is a unique image entirely. If you enlarge the image sufficiently, you will observe brush strokes and colors that were not produced by any camera or by a paint brush. These strokes are painted by hand through the use of digital software. I love and respect the art of photography and traditional art forms. However, the creation of this image exists beyond what the camera photographs. This is an alternative dimension of visual art that steps outside pure photography and outside the scope of oils, charcoal, pastels, acrylics, or watercolor. It's gratifying to see greater acceptance and respect among art enthusiasts and my fellow artists .
