Created as a digital painting in Serif PhotoPlus X2 for flickr’s ‘Serif Users’ group Chocolate competition. Dividing the word into two - Choco and late got the grey cells working. ‘Late’ made me think of White Rabbit's favourite saying (Alice in Wonderland), “I'm late!”, and his watch. This, in turn, conjured up Salvador Dalí's painting 'Persistence of Memory' and the ‘melting’ watches. The resulting image is a 'nod' to both Lewis Carol and Salvador Dalí. Upon reflection, there’s an element of ‘The Scream’ by Edvard Munch in there too.
Nor-Ken Lights 1 and 2
Two digital paintings created in Serif PhotoPlus X2. Called Nor-Ken because I didn’t want anyone to imagine they were the real thing, not that they really compare!

For this image manipulation PhotoPlus was used in the same way as described in the Colouring a Black and White Photo project found here. The only difference is for this image ‘un-realistic’ colours were used to convey a sense of ‘other- world’. The two ‘moons’ were created solely using the basic set of fx available from within the PhotoPlus program (and most other Serif software).
The original image comes from the Serif PhotoPlus 10 Image Collection on the Studio Extras DVD.
A photo-montage of six images taken from the Serif PhotoPlus X2 Image Collection with a touch of brushwork. The idea was to create an image with that edgy ‘Grunge’ look. Have I succeeded?
The person and the London tube train are different images, brought together using the Layer Masking technique discussed in the Layer Masks 2 tutorial.
Symbolic image, digitally painted in Serif PhotoPlus X2. Pretty rough painting as I've not really done much before (as I'm sure the painters among us can tell!), more used to pencils, pens, paper and vectors. No clip art or photos used as reference so please excuse the inaccuracies, purely drawn from imagination and inspiration.
