Some more Photo-Graphics

A ‘Photo-Graphic’ is basically a photo with added textures and digital in-painting/drawing.

Earth, Wind and Fire

In addition to serving as spouts for water in ancients times, the gaping mouths of gargoyles evoked the fearsome destructiveness of these legendary beasts, reminding the laity of the need for the (Roman Catholic) church’s protection. A previous owner of this house added them to keep evil spirits out.

Original photographs in black and white. Did some reduction so that only the outlines were left. Next I added textures and elements from other pictures plus coloring in-painting and drawing. The end result is what I call ‘photo-graphics’.
