It's Illustration Friday again already?! This is probably really good for me, not a time waster like I was worried it was. It gets me to create things I wouldn't otherwise think of. Computer art is hard with a mouse, on the other hand, I enjoy the effects I can create with the computer and I don't have to worry about destroying my picture with my experiments. Once again, an image came instantly into my mind when I heard the word of the week, and I went with it.
The concept was originally me looking into a mirror and seeing a face that is looking older and older looking back at me. It was sort of a sad and unsatisfying picture, so I changed the face to look more kindly, and now I think it is mysterious. Who is that face, anyway? Maybe a wise, ancient one.
[Update: I don't like this picture. Maybe it is a flawed idea or maybe "ancient" just doesn't translate well in computer art. mmm...ggggrrrr... What do you think?]
