The program I use almost exclusively to design graphics is Adobe PhotoShop
I occasionally employ other programs but normally anything I have to
do I can do in PhotoShop I use an abundance of filters, styles, patterns,
textures and brushes. Many I create myself. These effects combined with,
shading, embossing and many other useful tools, take a flat, boring
image and turn it into a dimensional one.
Knowledge of "layers' is a must in order to create intricate scenes.
I have a domain, Geolor's Exclusive Graphic Designs, that is devoted
exclusively to graphic suites, which I offer for purchase. However,
in this gallery, I have chosen a few of my intricate designs to showcase
in and of themselves.
Each one was a creation of love that took many hours of work. Six to
eight hours would be the minimum time spent on a project and some took
more than 24 hours all total.
Inspiration comes from many sources and normally quite suddenly. My
designs run the gambit and cover many areas of interest. However, recurring
themes throughout my work tend to be: eagles, wolves, Native American
symbols and images, mountains, landscapes, geology, Colorado and wildlife.
My love of nature and Native American culture seem to surface in many
digital composites that I create.
Showcased in this gallery are only a few samples of the work I have
done. The rest, including many Native American designs, are used in
the graphic sets offered at: Geolor's
Exclusive Graphic Designs.
I do not post these designs because I think I am the best designer on
this planet. People more experienced and talented would look at my work
and know they could do much better. However, anyone who does not design
at all or who is in the "place in time" that I was only a
few years ago will, perhaps, be amazed at what can be done with digital
images. I post these graphic composites because I enjoyed creating them
and I also enjoy sharing them.
