About Your Art Work.

I see a lot of good digital art work here. I would also like to know more about the artist and their work to better understand and learn from each other.
First, I would like to thank Rebecca for the feature.
I do not really describe my work because I want to viewer to come to their own conclusions on what they see or imagine. My most recent works are autostereogram or hidden images with in an image. Most of them are erotic and suggestiveness. They tap into the consciousnesses and subconscious. I joined this group for the title, manipulation, and the type of art, digital. Not only do I manipulate the image, but manipulate the viewer through hidden images, messages and representation.
The hidden images can only be created in the minds of the viewer and therefore only seen by the viewer. Also, you can only see the hidden image if you can consciously comprehend the abstracted representation.
I would like to know more about the artwork of other artist. Please post what you are doing, technique, style or what ever you are trying to achieve with your art.
It's great to have so many digital art groups to join at FAA; it's a far cry from the good old days (mid 90s) when I first experimented with combining my photography with computer-assisted effects. Back then, if you mentioned 'digital art' people looked at you as though you needed an excorcism! ;-)
These days, photo-manipulation is still my primary focus -
I also create non-photo-based digital work, including abstracts and other 'straight' digital images -
fractal-based art -
kaleidoscopic and mandala-style images -
Of course, the occasional nearly-untouched photo slips by, too -
Truly, I LOVE creating digital art -- my camera and computer are a match made in heaven. Luckily, digital art has become more and more accepted by buyers and other art-lovers over this past decade. Also, it's great to have print-on-demand sites like FAA, RedBubble, Zazzle and others, which make it so much easier to have our work seen and appreciated, and sold to a worldwide audience.
Continued good luck with your autostereograms and other art, Jin! :-)
I remember when I started experimenting with digital back in the mid 90's. I saw it as a new art form, but little did I know how much push back it would cause among non digital artist, even form photographers.
I never did anything with it for over 16 years and now here I am. I still find nothing has changed. It seems more people are using digital media then doing any art with it. The death of film has really freed and displaced photographers. Now anyone can take as many pictures with a push of a button. I often hear the phrase "I will photoshop it".
I still take photos, but don't really display them. I find my self uninterested in capturing through the view finder now a days. It seems more fun to take pictures with your camera phone since it is there with you all the time.
What I have noticed is that more people are going digital, but I think it's due to the fact it's so easy and cheap. It really cost nothing to do it and you have sites like this to display it.
Wendy, thanks for your post and sharing. I hope others can share as well.
