My full-time job is to make art, mostly fine art and sometimes graphics commercially. Recently researching some old vintage holiday images that are in the public domain for holiday greetings for both a client and myself as well, I came across a cover from The Ladies Home Journal and a variety of reindeer images. The mandala shown below is one of the resulting images from my digital experiments. There are a few refinements to be made but this is to show you the process. Scroll down to see a series of images and the process.
First, I decided to combine 2 different images to create a new one. After processing the initial images through probably 10-15 different filters, I chose the following resulting images to work from. The next images show the magazine cover and the filtered version and below this the final filtered version of the deer and its original too.
The next steps were to cut out the new deer and to cut out the girl combine various parts to create a new whole images.
The resulting image and then another version with a greener tone. Then the next steps were making some mandalas that would stand alone using mirroring. I chose 7 as the number of mirrors since I like the symbolism of a seven-pointed star. If you google it, here is the simple explanation:
The seven-pointed star (or, alternately, septa gram or heptagram) has accumulated many levels of meaning over the centuries. One of the oldest recorded meanings given to this star may be found within Kabbalistic tradition, where it represents the sphere of Venus and the power of love.
I also created a gif.
