Re: Apr/May 2012 Contest Discussion

Congratulations Bill. Nice job.

T. asked for some "how'd" ya do thats". All I can say is that I experimented with several brushes to get the look I wanted AFTER I spent time viewing and studying chalks and pastels in the art room at the local college. If I had to repeat what I did...fat chance.

Thanks for the play. It was great fun.

Janet

Re: Apr/May 2012 Contest Discussion

Thank you, Joeven, Veralisa, Cupcake, fenix, and JanetPetty.

I 'googled' for examples of white chalk on black and was surprised at the diversity of styles. That diversity was shown in the entries here and I liked each approach.

Many, many years ago, as a young and broke student, I sketched using black charcoal on white paper to decorate my first apartment.

I used my personal experience along with the googled examples to create my entry.

In photoshop I used simple filters [blur, grain, simplify] multiple times, with masks to add and subtract the textures. I also did some smudging.

I especially enjoyed the creativity shown in all the entries.
