Maxfield Parrish's work is known by everyone almost on sight, but few know him by name. His calendar and magazine illustrations were so popular they created almost a genre on their own.

Known primarily for his images of women, usually in togas or nothing at all, we're going to do a 21th-century PC turn on things and start with an image of a man. Do what you will with this image, but keep it in the Parrish mode. Add a toga, faerie wings, or satyr hooves, or anything else you feel is appropriate, but remember his images were known for their wonderful use of color.

Here's some reference material

Challenge: Turn this flute player into a Maxfield Parrish painting

  • Enter the Challenge type and number in "Descriptive Keywords" (ie: "Photo-Art Challenge #501" or "Manipulation Challenge #132"
  • Include a complete description of the steps you used under "Photo Description". (You might want to write it elsewhere and paste it here)
  • Attach your file as an 800 pixel wide JPG file, compressed so that the overall file is under 200k (this usually means 60% compression).

  • If you expect any comments for your entry, offer your comments to other entries

As always, there are no winners, no losers, no prizes, only a sharing and learning opportunity for everyone.

How you retouch and how much you retouch is up to you, as long as you fulfill the Challenge. Have fun, and good luck!
