This is modified from an old acrylic painting. I changed the painting a long time ago on the Amiga with Opalpaint, but lacking the higher resolutions, I left it until I could make it larger and with greater detail. The original scan was created from DCTV and was quite blurry. The new picture is a crisp1044 x 1585. This image is only 1/3 the size, hence there is some distortion on the edges of many of the `circles.'
The acrylic painting was made as an art school poster... I changed some of the symbolism in this modification and attempted to emphasize creativity and a few other concepts. I stayed away from making all the images pure 3D globes which would have been easy in a 3D program; I did not want too much distortion in the images of fine art. In addition, I tend to shy away from 3D programs unless I must use them.
The Van Gogh was the most fun to paint, the most difficult was the Leighton. Of the few images of mine in this piece- I have no disillusions that my work belongs with the above masters (though my father's work: the orchard landscape and the old man in the upper right, easily fits the grade); I added mine and others to keep the same tone as the original. The Winnie the Pooh pix was the first drawing I ever did with the Wacom tablet and did it during a free art class in school. Though the girl's face is cracked, I gave her a positive expression. I put so many hours into this I can not remember how many!
