Examples of Celtic art have taken many forms over the centuries. Craftspeople have been called upon to use their creative skills to produce works in many materials and media. Examples of Celtic art forms are:
- Illuminated manuscripts
- Metal castings
- Stone masonry
Digital Image Rendering
Digital design tools such as Photoshop give illustrators many rendering options, providing innumerable ways to give our Celtic art visual impact. As well as visualising traditional Celtic art in virtually realistic forms, we can explore new ways to represent our Celtic design ideas.
Image Rendering Examples
Browsing this website, you will see that I have produced Original Celtic designs, Celtic knotwork patterns and Celtic border designs in a variety of finishes. I have rendered most of them to simulate one material or another.
In this particular gallery, I have taken a single Celtic design and created a range of images representing different materials and forms, both traditional and modern. This demonstrates the impact digital rendering can have on a simple design.
