Mosaic Cowboy - A Self Portrait
Posted by: Phillip Garcia on 04/30/2013 - 12:08 AM
Hello all and thanks for reading the post. Does my image deserve to win? Well I can't say it deserves any more than the others submitted. They are all great works of art and it's fun just to be part of the contest.
This image was take about 13 years ago with a Sony MVC-FD88 FD Mavica 1.3 Mega Pixel Digital Camera (still have it)... LOL, talk about old school huh? Remember the one's that took the 3.5 floppy?
Anyways, it was a self portrait taken in front of a mirror which helped create the flash in the background. It was during my dimestore cowboy phase but I always was into changing images on the PC even way back then. I don't remember the program I used (maybe Paintshop Pro) but it was always fun to just mess around with the photos to see what could be done with them.
I've held on to this one in particular because I thought it was a great image that was transformed using stained glass effects, then mosaic tiles, then back to stained glass, and so on, and so on.....One thing I like alot about this image is the further you stand away, the more clear it becomes and really starts to look like me. :)
Over the years I done very little to change the original presentation other than change up the colouring effects.
I'd appreciate any votes and for sure your viewing. Means alot to have other artists look at your work and hopefully like it. Leave feedback if you want to.
Thanks and happy voting
Old school? I had an old Fuji digital camera that I really liked. However, my RB67 and a few other cameras that I use are REALLY old school!
