    As I hinted at in other posts, I have decided to make the Ohin3 art show post. I know Hobie and others love to look at pics so here you go. At the risk of being off of the pipe smoking topics of these forums, I will start with a series I did based on photographs of smoke. Some are incense smoke and some are pipe smoke. The photos have been heavily manipulated using various programs as well as traditional artist tools. I will post one pic every few days or once a week. If anyone objects to this topic being in a pipe smoking forum I will happily stop. All images are original, copywritten and owned by pEEjAYeM prOdUckshEns Ltd. Enjoy this first image and all to follow.

    Cheers.

    That is really cool Phil.
    I look forward to more.
    If you don't mind I would like to collect them into a screen saver file.

    Have a great day!

    Glad you like it Lawrence. I don't mind you using the images for a screen saver. I just don't want to see them turn up on someones website. I sell these to web designers, game designers, promoters, packagers and marketers of all sort. As a matter of fact, if any of you like what you are seeing and would like to use any of them for commercial purposes let me know. If you like the style but not the content feel free to send me pics and I will do what I do to them as per your specs and my creativity and skills.

    Cheers.

    Phil: you are da man......great stuff for sure, I'm definitely looking forward to all of them. I think all forums should have a general discussion/off topic section where people can have their horizons expanded with exposure to others hobbies. I'm a member of another forum which is strictly controlled to the core subject, and after being on there for 4 years, it just gets really boring going over the same thing.

    Earth: The Insane Asylum of the Universe. Nowhere else could things be more messed up.

    Does a culture based on separation and competition, of scientific sophistication and mideval religion, offer happiness even as it ravishes the Earth that sustains it?

    Reminds me of an other-worldly luminescent deep sea jellyfish-thingy.
    Nice work; endlessly fascinating. Kind of Rorschach-like for the symmetry.
    As Lawrence stated, it would make a nice page background.

    This began as a photograph of a decorative etched brass plate I picked up at value village for $1.60. When I show this piece it is 5' wide x 3' high.

    I do Kevin. What I do I do from start to finish usually. Meaning that I take photographs that have elements to them that I know I want to work with in the computer. But, I have done things for people based on photographs that they provide. I am also good at listning to a client, getting a feel for what they are after and then taking and manipulating the photos to yield what they want. I am pretty versatile. Feel free to message me or email me at philmelillo@gmail.com. Thanks for the interest.

    Cheers.

    I just cranked this one out and had to share. Photo was provided by a friend from his hike across Spain. He is an excellent photographer and knows how much of a sucker I am for architecture. This started out as an awesome photograph of the interior of some misc. Spanish cathedral. Enjoy.

    Very nice Phil. I really enjoy the Cathedrals with blue sky behind.

    In the photo of St. Mary's Basilica (I love Halifax by the way) there is an interesting effect of seeing the suns intense light as if from the horizontal. You must envision looking along a horizontal plane rather than looking up, as is natural, at a cathedral.

    Something else with this photo is that the arch, doubled, in the very center forms the vesica piscis, the symbol of the feminine/birth/motherhood often seen in Catholic art, but also much used in the occult.

    The possible philosophical content of this photo is staggering. Light/knowledge turned from the vertical (the heavens/God) to the horizontal (man). Occult symbolism bring to mind organizations which exist to promote man over God. The vesica piscis, as it is believed, will give birth to the anti-christ.

    Powerful photo really.

    @maineyachtie: Dude, you have to be as creative and open minded as I am to have crawled that far into my thoughts from just one piece of artwork. I look forward to future comments.

    Thanks to all of you who have complimented me on the art work. I'm glad you are enjoying it. Sooooooooooo much more to come...

    This one was manipulated so much that I dont even remember what the original photograph was. It definately does occur sometimes when original photo is nothing more than a starting point for digital art. this is one of my favs.

    Ohin3 I am very impressed with the Spanish Cathedral work of art. I believe it's titled Sanstead.I enjoy Art especially rarities and limited stuff. I would be honored if you'd allow me to hang it with my small but growing gallery.

    Right on. I will get permission from the photographer and look into printing costs. What size would you like? I have never shown it, but if I was going to show it, however, I would most likely show it at about 30 X 20.
