Digital Atrs Group

This group will become a place to display digital "Art". Anyone who has or would like to learn how to turn their photos into art, then this is where to come. We will be putting tutorials up here on Seaknots on how to do various tricks with your photos with Photoshop and Painter. Also lots of techniques on improving your photos. The digital art world is growing leaps and bounds and becoming more and more accepted into the realms of traditional art. Please if you have any Ideas for this group just shout it out.
Digital Art is a lot of fun and very rewarding. I have personally being into graphic arts for many years. I was a traditional artist for a lot of those years. I am also a MCSA with a degree in Comuter Networking so it was a perfect marriage for me. Also after getting into boats it made more sense to use a graphics tablet and a laptop than to drag an easel and brushes around.

Hope you join us or simply send us your Ideas
We chose not to display any traditional art as this is a digital art group

It seems that this group has lost its mentor, Martin Duffy, so I'll step in and post one of the pictures I've been working on

Not sure if these images qualify for here or not? They are made to look like a comic book

Hi Martin,
I don't use plug ins. I'm still working with Photoshop 7.0, which has served me fine. What a good, solid software it has been for me. When in a rush I use Picasa, just to fix up a photo fast. But I've been toying with the idea of buying the newest version of Photoshop to see what I'm missing in technology.. LOL
I've been playing around with digital photography for years, since the first digital cameras came on the market. I kept up-grading over the years.

I have a mess of photos on CD. Some of my work was with vintage racing and vintage cars in general, my other hobby.

As for the pictures of my boat under sail..People always seem to get only half of a boat into the view finder. and I only have a small boat !! . LOL I'm such a perfectionist. I'll have to do the dinghy thing and have my husband run by me a few times..

Looking forward to the 'New project for sping ' project.

B43 Windlass Drainage

Doing some maintenance on my B43 Quick Antares windlass this year. After removing the windlass, I knew instantly that I should have been doing this at least ever other year.  The windlass was preforming weak and slow with a noise which made me think the motor brushes or a bearing was going out, thus the reason for removing it.What I found upon removal was a tremendous amount of salt and sand on the top part of the gearbox, literally packed in. Upon cleaning everything up, luckily all bearings…See More
