Carved Dragon

Photoshop, Soft block print | January 30, 2006 | By

Today’s piece of artwork is a soft block carving which has been printed then scanned into Photoshop and colorized using a variety of layers, brushes and enhancement tools including such different channel modes as Color, Darken, Lighten, Multiply.
It’s a different version of the same dragon (scroll down) which I painted in my Moleskine last Friday for the first day of Chinese New Year.
I think it might make a cool T-shirt, too!

    I always love your soft block carvings! This is spectacular, Karen.

    I love this carving! Especially colored with the bright colors. How did you transfer it from the drawing you did to the soft carving material? What a great idea to make
    “stamp” of a drawing.
