Nude, Patrice’s wonderful drawing challenge
I’m all over the place right now, but I couldn’t miss Patrice’s wonderful drawing challenge “nude”, so I prepared this digital art earlier.
This is my first try at digital art. Layers of my photography, old postcards, old maps, old letters, a couple of free stock images, and a bit of manipulative work with Photoshop. If anyone wants a through breakdown of the system, I’m happy to tell you all. 😀
Don’t forget to come by Patrice’s site and check out the other fabulous artists.
amazing! i have no clue how this is done . . you always seem to manage the fabulous . . and astonish me completely.
Aw, thank you Maggid. It’s not too difficult, I can teach you how if you have Photoshop. 😀
Oh, so lovely!
Thank you so much Evalina. I might make more, this was fun. 😀
d?kuji moc 😀
Thank you so much Kathryn. It wasn’t too hard to figure out. 🙂
wauw, these are wonderful
and like Maggid, i have no idea how to do this!
i like the last one
the bird, the nude with pearls…. classic!
thank you so much for joining
and i wish you a fine last day in Prague!!
Thank you so much Patrice. I’m going to have to wait to come around to everyone’s from E, tomorrow. 😀 Big hugs and thank you so much for hosting.

You always astonish me Veronica!
Wonderful images 🙂
Aw, thank you. How are you doing? Going to update me soon? (Of course you write only for me…lol) But I miss you. X
as always brilliantly creative!
Aw, thank you so much sweetie. XX
Beautiful how the map becomes a transparent garment.
you do have a dab hand at PS!the results are stunning. i sense a little prague in here… ;)))) n?
Thank you so much Nadine. Yes, that’s an Alphonse Mucha stamp and a black headed gull (found on the river in Prague) in one, and a European peacock butterfly in the other image. 😀
Wow, this is your first try at digital art, Veronica! Bravo! Bravo!
It’s nice to meet you here in the Drawing Challenge group.
See you next week? I wonder what theme Sus will come up with?
Absolutely will try my best to be here next week. 😀 I’m looking forward to see what Sus has up her arty sleeve too. 😀

This is your first piece of digital art? Can’t believe it – it’s so great! Wonderful collages.
Thank you so much Eva. It wasn’t hard to do. Loads of tutorials out there for blending layers in Photoshop, and it’s such an open program. 😀
I love collage and yours are lovely. I hope you do post your process. Can’t remember if I said, but I enjoyed your trip to Prague and found myself wishing you could live there, because your love for your home came through clear with longing. Blessings, Veronica.
Aw, thank you Sabra. I’d love to live there again for a few years, but possibly trying to keep a foothold in three countries might just do my head in! (although, I must admit that I did look at some of the prices of the apartments overlooking the Vltava! What am I like?)
I enjoyed these digital collages very much, Veronica. Great work, especially in light of being your first foray into that fascinating arena! I love the pops of orange in the top image.
I’m glad you like the orange Sus; me too. The collages looked too boring without that little bit of colour. The cutting and layering of the orange stamp was a bit tricky though…lol…next time I might try a stamp without the cancel lines on it. 🙂
these are beautiful veronica- I love the layers and how antique they feel- like I’ve just gone on a long journey in the past and found some serious treasure 🙂
Hi Kristen, thank you so much. I much admire my friend Nick Bantock and his art and sometimes try for a “Bantock” type expression. That’s how his art makes me feel. http://www.nickbantock.com 😀
these are beautiful and rich. sounds like a fun process.
Thank you so much Tammie. I find them beautiful and rich too. 🙂
I hope you’ll be doing much more in this digital art style Veronica! If this is a hint of what you might come up with! Wowser. These could be journal covers, book bag stencils and the list goes on. So much fun here. Well I hope you are having a beautiful time travelling. They want me to use only one l as in traveling, but I refuse. I am a rebel today. Looking forward to seeing more of your art as time passes here in the challenge group. *smiles* Norma, x
Hi Norma, thank you so much. I’d love journals with covers like these but have no idea how to start a process like that. And you should absolutely keep all the “l”s you can get away with. We’re Canadian after all…we already stick cute “u”s in everything. 😀
Oh Veronica these are lovely….I hope you will do a tutorial sometime & show us how to do it! I have been so enjoying your beautiful photos of Prague that I almost missed these….glad I didn’t !
Thank you so much Sally, I’d be happy to. I’m not an expert but the program is really open. I’ll do a simple demo. 😀
Oh I like it! Especially the last woman with the necklace, the flowers and the map. Very sexy! Like the layers very much!
Yesss, photoshop is such a great tool for playing around and collaging pictures! From time to time I do that, too, combining drawing and photos or just doing photo-collages and apart from the fact, that it costs a looooot of time, I love to try out those many functions…your digital art pieces are beautiful, just don’t stop playing with that medium!!
Thank you so much Tania. It’s really fun, isn’t it? 😀 I keep thinking of new designs. Wish there was more time.
Wow Veronica, I didn’t expect to find collages as I came here and I’m totally enthusiastic, they are totally awesome and it doesn’t look at all that you did it for the first time digitally! I Love them!
Oh good! I love a good surprise. 😀 Thank you Barbara.
