Merry Christmas to all of you, this is my first post at the Alien Art community created by @juliakponsford and i am really excited. I've wanted to try the communities feature for a while but did not have the time, but now at my lazy holiday afternoon is the perfect opportunity to give it a try. Communities is a really new cool feature of Steem and you should give it a try, subscribing and start posting there or even create a community of your own.

A digital creation from 2018 when i was making my first experiments with Photoshop. It was a commissioned artwork (which the client never paid,lol) and the directions was to visualize sth like relaxing at work or avoid stress or sth like that. I had the photograph of the meditating suited guy in my library and begun with a clear vision to use him as my central theme. Black and white was a good choice to portray the feeling of dullness at the office and also to create a contrast with the colourful background. I liked also the idea of flowers growing through the meditation process and also chose a vector cityscape to further emphasize the urban environment.

Last but not least i used a filter with scratches and dirt to cover the artwork and create a unified effect for all the different photos combined. I became a big fan of this kind of filters while i was making my digital creations because i can hide a lot of my mistakes and somehow blend all the images together. I imagine it like a varnish that a painter applies at the end of the the work.

georgeboya, I Need Your Help!

Both @ArtTurtle and @Artopium (and perhaps soon @thejollyroger) are being needlessly downvoted by themarkymark. The more the delegator bots
are downvoted the less they will be able to upvote your content so this is an indirect attack on you! This is happening out of
pure vindictiveness as you know these bots are not spam and are powered by your steem power. Please help out by upvoting this comment
in order to counteract themarkymark's downvotes. Then please use your new downvote pool to downvote themarkeymark. He is a witness
and is abusing his power as such. Please unvote him for witness here.
He creates blacklists of thousands of Steemians he deems "inappropriate". I believe he is a majority cause for the drop in
the price in steem as he wrecklessly downvotes random content causing people to want to leave Steemit. Since he has over 500,000 SP
he can do quite a bit of damage, so it's going to take a concerted effort to get him to stop. Thank you!

Thank you Julia:) Its ok, shit happen sometimes,lol

That is beautiful expression of the idea of community, it is like what we have in our mind sometimes there are so many thoughts about our work, family, friends and it always makes me surprised to know how much we can save in our memories. Your creation is full of LIFE!

I really like the way you see it Stef:) The thought of a loved ones can uplift our spirit at a dull day:)

It was a commissioned artwork (which the client never paid,lol)

Dang! That client is so uncool! 😂 I can relate... same thing happened for me from time to time...

Great artwork btw, so urban yet I get the yogi feels.

Really uncool and it was 101 artworks not only one,lol. Its ok, i passed over it and i took some of the money in the end, also learned photoshop. But it was a very stressing period for me.

I am glad that you liked it:)

I love this you have captured the stillness of nature and the beautiful wildness in children which really is what Zen is all about, in my eyes any how xxxx

I am so happy that you liked it:) I tried to create a connection between the real and the spiritual:)

I am happy:)

Lovely work here once again Sir George!
2 non paying clients caused me much damage in the early 90s, as I had a small building alterations company and I employed 5 young guys. We specialized in roofing repairs and alterations and both of the non payers were rich guys that wanted big jobs done. The materials cost forced me into debt and upon completion we had to hear that the one guy had emigrated and the other one filed for bankruptcy.
But such is life my friend.

I am happy that you like it and i agree, such is life, with the good and the bad times, we will stay strong:)

Thank you Sir George and as they say, "let the good times roll"
