Hi art friends.

Just a short check in today. Spent time last weekend organizing my Takashima files and starting the character extraction process.

While looking through my image folders, I ran across some random shots I took of Mauve, my Ashton Drake Pinafore Purple Blythe and spend some time noodling around with dreamy backgrounds and the May Texture Club files from 2 Lil Owls.

“Mori Blythe”

I really love the background, which is a shot of a dead log in the foreground with trees and hotels in the background, taken last October when I was in Dallas for work. Not totally satisfied with my Blythe extraction; got a bit too much white halo around the edges. But I didn’t want to spend too much time on this image. It’s an exercise rather than a finished composition.

Just a bit of fun, trying to create the type of dreamy imagery I most enjoy. I do want to experiment more with this background. Maybe even write a post about it so you can see just the background.

Happy creating!
