This is my second attempt at creating some kind of art piece entirely digitally.
I'm still getting used to using digital mediums and editing techniques. A lot of exploring and experimenting of different effects, patterns, brush styles and such went into this piece.
Unlike my previous digital art piece, I wanted this one to take up the full space of the canvas. I wasn't too bothered by "Rustic Tribal Cyclops Insignia" having significant blank spaces, due to it being a 'symbol' piece of sorts. However, with Aquatic Splatter Splash, I felt it was more important to use the full canvas due to it being more of a 'scene' piece. That's my take on those differences, anyway. :-3
Another big focal point for this piece was to use colours which compliment (rather than contrast heavily against) each other, and stick to variations of blues and purples to hone in on the aquatic theme.
While I have used a larger variety of visuals in this piece, I think that I prefer my previous digital art piece, "Rustic Tribal Cyclops Insignia", just a little bit more. I do really like how this one turned out as well, though. :-D
Created in Serif DrawPlus X6 using various brushes, transparency styles and a couple of altered QuickShapes. Brush strokes drawn entirely using a Microsoft Comfort Optical Mouse 1000.
