Re: Nov 06 Contest Votes

I wish I could have voted for everyone who entered. This contest was very difficult and each version is so very good. But we can only vote for 5, so these are my picks:

1. cazubi -- I just wish I could come close to drawing like you. Every detail is perfect. The photo became a flawless painting. Great outlining. The color choices are wonderful. The foreground becomes the background (or vice versa) integrating nature with the subject as the art nouveau style does.

2. Raniday – Great work on creating a painting. Excellent color choices and integrating nature with the subject. Good work on the outlines.

3. Makeover Magic – Lovely work on the outlining details, especially her face. The colors are great.

4. Doug Colwell – I love the background and the outlining. You’ve created a very good painting. Also, the colors work very well.

5. HannibalVector -- Your framing is excellent as is the overall painterly look you’ve achieved. The outlines are perfect, but somehow her face still looks a little too much like a photo.

Special mention to Cupcake and soleah. While not as “art nouveau ” as some, I’ve spent a lot time enjoying looking at your entries for the softness and effects. Both of you have done wonderful work.

Congratulations everyone.

Re: Nov 06 Contest Votes

My vote:
1. cazubi - I love the intricate detail and how you made the subject into a 2d drawing.
2. lorraine - Simple and clean. Well done.
3. lonk - Well executed. Colors a bit bright but then I'm not an expert on art nouveau.
4. photob - I also like your previous entry
5. hannibal-vector - Curls on the hair. Did you trace it or use filters? I like it.

Re: Nov 06 Contest Votes

Since I still need assistance spelling it, I'm not real comfortable judging what is or isn't 'art nouveau', so I based my votes soley on the contest guideline 'It should be similar in style to the samples images provided.' The portrait samples I looked at all shared a similar style of line drawing and a mostly flat application of colours (not much 3d shading), and most of them also seemed to feature lots of curvy leaves, flowers or vines.

1.Cazubi - really nice integration with sideground?, great colour, line, and a clean look.
2.Makeovermagic - another good fit with bg or sg, I like the sketchy lines. Great face.
3.PhotoB - line quality looks consistant in subject/bg, great colour, maybe too much photo peeking thru.
4.Lorraine - a great illustration, extremely well done, but not quite 'similar in style'.
5.HannibalVector - lines (especially the hair) capture the style perfectly and match the bg, but the photo look of the face, bird and arm doesn't fit.
