dominoes challenge at Digital Whispers

Here's another challenge I participated in at Digital Whispers.  A picture of dominoes was provided for this challenge.  I just can't seem to leave the warp tool alone and used it extensively for this image.
The background was from Rian, furniture from Marta Van Eck. I think it was the Alice in Wonderland kit? Drawings were collected and coloured by me.

Paradise challenge July 2010

The challenge this week at Digital Whispers was to produce an image from a photo provided of waterfalls.  I don't think everyone's idea of paradise would be to go swimming with a water rat, but they are really cute. I sometimes catch a glimpse of them on the English canals.
Here is the image I created.

This is the image I used. I also used a plugin filter to create the water ripples.

I also entered another Digital Whispers Dark challenge.  This was a difficult one.  We had to try to get the subject's hair to merge with the tree roots. Both images were provided.

The robot which gives answers to questions that politicians won't

My creativity has dried up.  My computer's aren't behaving, and the USB plug to my Wacom Tablet is bent and only offering me sporadic connection.  I have to keep the old grey brain cells semi-alive, so I've been keeping up to date with politics.  My MP is not the only one who will be relieved when I get back to digital art again :-)))

Meanwhile I found this amusing robot. Ask it a question and it provides an answer, which will hopefully make you laugh as much as it did me.  Let me know what you think. Would love to know what you think of my new pet?
