Feature #1 : Light

Sat Aug 19, 2006, 2:22 PM

Hey all! :wave: I have some bad news.  Wait for it guys... seriously... this is embarrassing but... I have ABANDONED Northern Lights!! I know this must not come as much of a shock to those of you who actually read the Header thing on these journals (but does anyone?) because I've been reading it for weeks without progressing.  I just found it excrutiatingly boring and I didn't like the protaganist :hmm:  Sorry to all who recommended it!  I tried my best!  And also, I got my hands on the new Artemis Fowl book and really, who can resist? Right?  It's not my fault at all.

In other news, I've decided to start features.  Be scared... be very scared...

May it be a light to you when all other lights go out - Galadriel, The Lord of the Rings

That's right, folks!  My first feature has the theme of Light.  Mostly atmospheric light and light sources and how can they give such great results.  All of the featured images have used light in an artisic and effective way.

Featured Artist: :iconldiehl:

ldiehl has a fantastic concept of lighting and uses it to great effect in many of her beautiful digital paintings.

Other Art that uses lighting wonderfully

The light of the future by gilad :thumb32834818:   :: Protection :: by yardieLion
catch the sun by detail24   Untitled 3 by photocrafter Alone In The Uncounsciousness by ctrc
You're the Piano Woman by benihana03 warm - air by hepikied   revontuli by texi

lady at break by kiyaaa No one knows stars are dying by AquaSixio Feathers and Tinctures by tracyjb
Daughter by Losmios   Tree Root Canopy by ANTIFAN-REAL

River Flows Frozen by aegina    Tarot Card: The Hierophant by cosmosue
Songs of Sunset by Amethystana my granny by Wagner Forget The Past That Sleeps by galefra

:o  I know there is no traditional art section!  There will be in future features but I just felt that these three sections lend themselves well to extreme lighting effects etc... and I had enough images lined up to fill 6 features so there may be another light feature in the future...

I really enjoyed doing this!  It took me many hours but I found some wonderful new art in the process too. :)

  • Listening to: Yellow - Coldplay
  • Reading: Artemis Fowl & The Lost Colony - Eoin Colfer
  • Watching: The Two Towers - Cast Commentary
