Question Betta Scratch Art: Digital

Trying something new, and not sure if I want to try selling this one persay...a lot to be refined I think.

But wondering what people would think of something this abstract.

By scratch art, are you talking about those metal plates with layers on top of them that you can scrape off? How cool! Those fins are so shimmering and pretty. You're quite the multimedia artist. :D

This was done in Photoshop, as I dont have access to the scratch art I did in highschool. Fun stuff. But yes, that's exactly it. And this is just an experimental version of what I wanna do with it.

Glad you guys like it. Do you think it's worth printing though? Like say, if it was brighter, maybe just...more like actual paint instead of scratches?

If it is digital, you can probably adjust the filters and make the contrast greater. Or the colours brighter. Play around with and see if you like it.

Oh I definitely could, but I tend to shy away from playing with stuff too much. Like I said this piece was just practice and experimenting. I have another strategy for what I might do for the next one. Gotta choose my fish model though - a fish that has a dramatic, actiony pose >>

Cool Version 2.0

Based the fish off an actual reference photo (much thanks to SkyeWillow and DQ <3 )

I like how this one turned out much better, though because I went with a simple gradient instead of photo as the 'under' layer beneath the black, it looks less metallic. But I'm okay with this. Made the paint splatters easier to match up.

I have no clue how you pulled this all off, but it's full of Epic and Win!
