Imagining

About three quarters of all the novels I read are in the sci-fi or fantasy genre and I enjoy the related art that imagines different worlds.  Often there are familiar elements but the colour of sky is different and contains large, colourful moons or planets.  I decided to use this as a theme in some digi art play.

The foreground is a photo I tool last week and the basis of the sea and sky is a photo I took the week before.  I added texture from ShadowHouse Creations and then used some Dark Design planet brushes. 

I enjoyed playing and like the mix of real and imagined.

I was prompted to play and create some photo based art by the new Photo Art Friday at Pixel Dust Photo Art.  I intend to play along each week with a photo based piece.  Pop over and see the wonderful range of art that people have created and shared.

Great mix of what we know as the real world with an imagined one; very nicely blended together to create another dimension. Well imagined and executed...and just a little bit scary (in a good way!)

Bright blessings,
Kathy

As a teenager I loved reading sci-fi as much as anything else. I got away from it but I do love the fantasy art.
You did wonderful work on this piece!
I'm going to take your suggestion and go check out that meme.

Very cool. My friend Connie eventually realized that the unifying theme of her collages are the creation of fantasy worlds.
