Illustration Friday - Hierarchy

Illustration Friday "Hierarchy" -- a digital collage.

I just love these birds that I found on istock last year.

I have used many layers in this image, so many that I created a file large enough to mess up my computer. I'm running out of disk space with my huge Photoshop projects. Oh well...maybe I need another hard drive with a hierarchy for Photoshop files. Yea, as if I know what I'm talking about...

Here are the images I used in "Hierarchy" -- Photoshop allows me to manipulate them like crazy to create the depth and texture that you see in the finished compilation.

Have a great week and don't forget mom on Mother's Day!

Rebecca -- that's fascinating and fantastic!

I've been going through my blog posts, and discovered your comment on one of my old posts -- I'm so glad I discovered you! I'll be linking to your blog, and will enjoy looking around at your creative posts.

(I'm just starting to learn about using layers on Photoshop... I'm a rank amateur, but it's very interesting!)

Me again -- I've just put up a post introducing you and another blogger I've just "met". Thought you'd like to see it -- http://serenityathome.blogspot.com/2009/05/introductions-are-in-order.html

Hello,

I landed on your blog from another blog that had a banner that links to you. I'm so glad I found you. ;0)

I dabble with graphics programs. I have the old version 7 of Photoshop and a great book of "how to" But I seem to just experiment and I learn that way..probably not the proper way though..:0)

I love seeing the beginning stage of your digital pieces..very inspiring.

I love this little girl with the doves..too precious!

Drop by anytime..I'm always close by!

Have a great day,
Stephanie
