March 09 Contest - Photo Art

You’ve been tasked to enlarge and turn the provided black & white image into a full color oil painting.


Source Image: The Torn Hat - Photo from Library of Congress Prints and Photographs Division Washington, D.C

If you are having trouble saving the image; Right-Click on the above link (do not click it) and select SAVE LINK AS.

New to the contests? Please review the FAQs


Prize: Fluid Mask 3, donated by Vertus

Quote:
Prize Description: Now professional results are more possible than ever before. Make super fine mask selections using new sampling and selecting tools. Check out the new edge blending algorithms. And the new complex hair blending that automatically gets great results from multi-colored whispy hair. No longer should hair be the cutting-out nightmare it is today. Quick to pick up and intuitive to use, Fluid Mask 3 gets professional results fast.
THE RULES:

1. Contest will run from 1 Mar to 23 Mar 09. 5pm (Central Standard Time).

2. I will not answer questions concerning the rules. Interpretation of the rules is as important as execution.

3. Tasks:

Quote:
  • Enlarge photo to exactly 600 px wide by 800 px high
  • Turn the provided photo into an oil painting
  • Do NOT add a frame
4. When you submit your entry put your username in the filename (ie: tpaul.jpg). This is so users can save the images to a local directory and remember who did what--important when it comes time to vote.

5. Post your entries to this thread. Links will not be accepted. Please restrict your comments, questions or discussion to the Mar 09 Contest Discussion thread. Inappropriately placed posts will be deleted.

6. Only one entry per person. You can change your entry up to the deadline.

7. Voting will run from 24 Mar to 31 Mar. Only those with entries may vote.

8. Voting:
  • Submit the 5 best entries (by artist name) in order, starting with your favorite.
  • You cannot vote for your own image.
  • Once you have voted, do not change your votes. The votes are tallied as them come in so any changes in the votes may not be reflected in the final results.

Finally, please remember that this is a friendly contest and suppose to be a learning experience. Tips and suggestions to help others are highly encouraged. Also please don’t limit your comments to just the top 5 when you vote. Most members are eager for feedback about their images, so remember to help each other out.
