“The username means, literally, “Shadow Wave” or “Wave Shadow.” The first part was given to me by friends, the second a choice…
I haven’t really had much art education… For me, my pieces are words or phrases that move me (those would be the titles), and emotions or thoughts that I try to express.
When I’m actually working with the piece, I don’t really think about the tones or lighting or contrast or other artistic terms… I just keep adjusting it, making little changes until it “looks right” to me.
So, on photoshop, I will sometimes run a piece through ten or fifteen layers until I get the look that I want… I’m sure many of you have had the same experience, though. Art is a movement, an expression, a means to create… but most of all it is pure soul and raw emotion.”
