Digital Art - Roses & Guitar

Roses & Guitar Digital Art is one of my favorite piece of art. I was having fun playing around with the Wacom Bamboo Fun and thought this would be an interesting tattoo art. I didn't add any color to this piece because I felt the black and white was enough.

If any tattoo artist is interested in this piece let me know and I we can talk pricing. This piece is copy righted.

I you would like to download this art piece go to Big Stock Photos. At Big Stock Photos you can view some of my earlier pieces and also future art.

Placing A Rose Against A Cracked Wall

Digital Art by Lonnie Niver

This art piece was made by using Adobe Photoshop CS2 and a Wacom Bamboo Fun . I was practicing using the Wacom Bamboo Fun. It is pretty easy to use if you're all ready an artist. I like drawing in Charcoal so, the only difference is getting use to drawing on a monitor instead on paper.

I also found that drawing on a piece of paper of what I would like to draw can also be traced using the Wacom pad. When the art piece is complete just place it on the tablet and start drawing. I would also tape it to the tablet so it doesn't move.

The tablet can range any where from $200 to $400 but well worth the investment if you are looking to put your art into a digital format. I have provided links below to the product mentioned above. If you don't have the money to purchase Adobe Photoshop then there is a program that may work for you that is FREE call the GIMP.

Wedding Photo Editing Techniques!


This wedding photograph was taken last year for a young couple. I didn't charge very much for this pictures. But what I wanted to show is how I the photo by taking out the background and adding a new scene.

As you can see in this photo there is an unwanted background image of a sign. The sky is kind of washed out too so, I had to find or take a photo shot that I could use to replace the background.

I started by clipping the background of the image. I used the marquee tool and out lined the background as close to the limousine and the groom that I could get.

Then taking a small number erase tool with a soft edge and erased the edges getting even closer to my images.

The next step was taking the blur tool with about a 50% Opacity to soften and blend the edges.

In the image below you can see the finished product.


The background of the church was an image I found in my library of images I took years ago. The image matched so well that it is hardly noticeable except for the lighting. So, to solve this problem I converted the image to black and white and it is awesome.
The bride and groom where very happy with the results. - Recent articles about Website Design
