index « optical « Into 2011. Surrendering to the higher light.

posted : 2010.Dec.29 @ 2.52pm

I thought it would be a good idea to end my last thread of art, Since so much has developed artistically for me I think it would be best to Reformat the slate clean for the new year. 
These first two images are photo manipulations with painting and design work overlayed.

Both Phong and Andrew have been inspiring me to reach for more depth in my pieces. I am learning new techniques and implementing them daily! This is the time for change and I feel the shift now more than ever. Again deep thanks to everyone supporting me on my artistic journey and special thanks to Geo Atherton and the dreamcatcher team for providing me new brushes and resources to evolve my creative process to the next level.

Awesome, Justin.

I love seeing your skills put to good story-telling use.


The magical forest tech-bubbles are fantastic.  I want a set!

You have some seriously wicked mentors dropping knowledge on you.

Thank you for the comments! We are all here to co-inspire and push each-other to new realms!

On the topic of new realms..
Viradical suggested I dive deeper into this piece. I smoothed out the skin tones and added some cooler colors to draw attention to the third eye.
I also implemented more focus depth with blurring out the sides. 

Here is some detail of the pattern on the butterflys. Far away they are noticeable shapes however close up they are very detailed patterns inspired by my DMT journeys and tessellating Islamic star patterns.

beautiful creations Justin.  I really enojy the way you are expressing the etherail light waves and textures, very stylish.

I also agree with Air on the story aspect of the second piece. keep it up!

Thanks Simon! 
I have also been working at learning tablet painting skills, here are a few recent speed-paintings reflective towards where I grew up and currently still reside: british columbia
I plan on doing some more serious environmental pieces when I can hone some skills in this field, for now its just practice. Any and all critique is welcome.

 Hello all, Here are some more environmental pieces i have been working on. Some sketches and experimenting. With Bodhi falls I used all the techniques i have learned so far together and really focused myself. 
 I am having a blast with my tablet and am currently saving money for a hologram run. Still freelancing regularly but won't be posting my various posters, logos in this forum.

The last snow bear.

The IUCN now lists global warming as the most significant threat to the polar bear, primarily because the melting of its sea ice habitat reduces its ability to find sufficient food.
Average temperatures in the Arctic region are rising twice as fast as they are elsewhere in the world. Arctic ice is getting thinner, melting and rupturing.
A storm is brewing... We must act now to stabilize and balance the earth before its far too late.

You're on fire - keep burning it up!

Deep blessings phong, I feel as though I am slipping into some slip stream of flow.
Pouring hours into learning more techniques on matte-environment painting and watching more and more documentaries. 
Been focusing myself on constant flow of learning, painting and educating myself about the world to better reflect vibrations into my paintings.

Horus Awakens:

In the wake of recent events in Egypt.. One love and freedom for every living being on the planet.

I feel certain areas of the image were a bit rushed but I do feel rushed to raise as much awareness on this issue as possible right now.
Almost thinking of doing a second Egypt based image after more information develops over the state of the country. 

 Weaving the platonic balance. The shadow wanderer analyses his path towards divine light.
