My Process : I edited photos I had opened in Picasa3. I used Picnik to turn them into pencil drawings [go into create, effects, pencil drawing]. I can still print them and have... at the photo printing store... as they remain jpegs.
These are the personal flower photos that Im currently working. Ive never done fractured pictures before but I see a lot of potential in these pictures. Nature gives us shapes that naturally work. Im not all that confident I can do them justice. But I read recently that we should try and capture their essence NOT try and produce a photograph. That suits me well.
