Discovery

I've never been one to watch the Discovery channel but I do love it when I make a discovery of my own. I found an amazing blog recently that I have to share with you. It's called Shadowhouse Creations.  The author of this blog is Jerry Jones, a self taught Photoshop digital artist. Let me tell you, his work is amazing. Aside from being very talented, he's also very generous. He offers textures, brushes and tutorials.

I picked up a couple of his textures the other day as well as a mask and did some playing around
 

This next one I used his mask and a texture. 

 
Of course my two example can't even compare to what you'll see on his blog but I had to show them.
Go on over and check it out. Shadowhouse Creations.

Too cool! I popped over to his site first, and it IS amazing. I would like to add (for the record) that I just read yesterday's post - I was a day behind - and now I wanna cookie....

Sandee said...

Wow, you are right he is indeed very talented. Wow.

You did well too. You have a new toy now. Have fun. :)

Hi Ann,

I just found this guy too! Such fun playing around with his textures ~ if only there was more time!

Oh, your cookies look delicious!
Nice stopping by! ldh

Waterrose said...

What a great find...now to go look!

Lin said...

Oooooh, very cool! I'm going now...

Ratty said...

Excellent link. I'm always looking for stuff like this, so I bookmarked it. Thanks.

BeadedTail said...

Looks great! I'll be sure to check out his site!

FishHawk said...

Thanks for calling my attention to ShadowHouse Creations! It is indeed a great site, and I have just added it to the list for a future Sites To See. (Of course, without Duke, his site could never be as great as yours.)

Roschelle said...

These are really good. And ShadowHouse is a GREAT site!

DK Miller said...

Those are cool. I'd love to hear how you did them. :-)

NICO Designs said...

Thank you for the link! I would love to learn how to do more with photoshop but I let it intimidate me.

Buggys said...

I'm going over to have a look but I have to tell you , I think that daisy is brilliant.

Jerry Jones said...

I'm touched by your kind words and glad to have new visitors.
May you frequent often and I'm happy to see I can help in some small way.

Me-Me King said...

You never cease to amaze me! Is it possible for you to hold an online class for the clueless like me?

And, speaking of the Discovery Channel, I do watch and I can proudly say I know all the mating habits of every creature on the planet.

VanillaSeven said...

Isolating other color often brings out the attention you want from the picture and you did it nicely Ann :)

Poetic Shutterbug said...

Oh, that is so cool and creative, I love this stuff. I'll go check out the link now. Thank you.

Jude said...

I am not creative at all so I admire anyone that is. I love what you did with your new finds, very cool.

digiVickie said...

L.O.V.E his site!!! Really cool photos you have :D

Cinnamon-Girl said...

I don't know a thing about Photoshop but your pictures look neat! Especially the flower.

Ann said...

Donna, thanks and you're welcome. I know you'll love it

Jen isn't it though, um, I'm out of cookies but the next time I make them I'll let you know

Sandee, i know, I was in awe of his work

Anna, thank you, and I loved your Barbie post, took me back a few years :)

LDH yes it is, I've seen quite a few that I want to download just haven't had the time

Waterrose, have fun over there

Lin, Cool for sure, have fun

Ratty, I do the same when I come across sites like that, although I've started using stumble upon also

Beaded tail it is, I'm sure you'll like it

FishHawk You are quite welcome, Duke thought you might like it. Maybe I should send Duke to visit Shadowhouse, nah, I'd miss him too much besides he's needed here

Roschelle, thank you very much, and I'm in total agreement

DKMiller, he has a tutorials on his site which are much better than any I can do but it's really quite simple, you just layer the textures over your photo and use different blending modes to get the effect you want

Nico designs I was at first also but once I learned it, there's no stopping me

Buggys I was really pleased with the daisy came out myself, but thanks for saying

Jerry I'm a total fan of your site. I will indeed visit often and your textures are a remarkable tool. I just knew that my readers would love to hear about you if they hadn't already

Me-Me if I knew how to do that I would consider it, if I ever figure it out you'll be the first to know. You are very fortunate to have that very useful knowledge regarding mating habits :)

Vanilla Seven why thank you so much. and I agree with you about isolating color

Poetic shutterbug enjoy the site, I'm sure you'll love it

Jude Thanks so much, Sometimes I don't feel very creative either

Vickie isn't it great. and thanks

Cinnamon girl thank you, the flower is my favorite.
