One of the new things I'd like to blog more about is my own personal explorations in using virtual media to create valid art. Over on my flickr I mentioned a little about how intrigued I am by the idea of identity and the homogenic. This also spills over to wider ideas that swim around the central theme of intellectual copyright and original thought. (Yes bear with me - my mind makes those sorts of connections!) I'm likely to blab about that now and again too!
So this series echoes a lot of varied ideas.
Creatively - it went something like this :
|D thinks .o(Hmmm I wonder what embryonic dolls dream of...)|
This idea of android dreams are something of a penchant and based in part on my recollections of things I used to dream up in childhood. The mecha-doll fish also has some reference to my fondness for Michael Manning's Hydrophidian
Embryonic-2 : Mecha Amonite I
|Embryonic-3 : Mecha Amonite II|
|Embryonic-4 : Mecha Kraken|
|Embryonic-4a : Mecha-Amonites in Tank|
I thought it would be nice to share some personal techniques in the form of a PSD formatted file which you are free to use, remix and redistribute (non commercially). I created the glass marble sphere in Embryonic 2 from a number of hand drawn layers and composites which I am placing here for you to play with. Have fun and don't forget to let me know if you found it useful.
