Description I guess you could say that maybe this one was preconceived. To an extent it was. I kept seeing this image in my head at night. Two shadows and a giant rocking rabbit. Why I don't know. The setting would change, but it was always the shadows and this rocking rabbit. One time it involved a parade. Really strange. Finally after about two years of this, I made this picture. I don't know that it has helped, but it turned out kind of cool I suppose.
Christian Poitras Member Since February 2011 Artist Statement The way I come up with an image, is quite simple. I do the work on my computer. I paint the background in, put a color on the background, and use a smudge tool to start shaping the image. Usually I will drag the colors around, making shapes or shadows. As that occurs I start to see the image develope. I do not go into a picture with an idea to create most of the time. I just let it evolve. As it does the picture becomes more clear, then I manipulate it until the picture is complete. I really enjoy listening to music and a lot of times that will dictate some of the names of the pictures. It may be something from an album title, a song title, or a lyric from a song. Sometimes it can help to take a picture in a certain direction.
