This is the first in what will be a series of birthday gift art for friends and family. A portrait of Laura, this is the first completed digital painting I have printed.


For years now I have been envious of folks that do digital painting. There is a good resource I like to frequent, ctrl+Paint, for tips and tricks.

Pictured here, Celia was made with an Intuos and Photoshop after a lot of practice. I’ve since upgraded to Painter 12 and have been very impressed with it for this sort of art.

Some details: I’ve dressed Celia in colors Laura likes, used some Hindu iconography of Lakshmi, and some clovers (for luck) then printed and framed it on 8×10 card stock.
