OASIS is something I came up with while looking at an old piece of work “Star Girl I”. I realized since working on that image that my skills have progressed a great deal and wanted to see what I could do with that stock image today, and that is how I made my start on this project.

Photo Manipulation and effects are the area of graphic design that I enjoy the most. I love taking images and bringing them together in new and interesting ways to make something wholly different. For this I wanted to creating something stunning and dramatic that had an organic feel to it. I also still wanted to use lighting effects in this image, but something more than typical streaks and swirls.

The end result was something beautiful that I feel is also unique.
