5 Minute Art

ok, the challenge here is speed. you have 5 minutes to do something with the image posted. the 5 minutes does NOT include opening the image or saving when done, but only what you do inbetween those actions. you may use whatever you like, photoshop, paint shop pro, or anything else. you may use anything within your arsenal of filters, plugins, etc. the whole point is to get something nice in a VERY limited amount of time.

the photo is one of mine taken over 30 years ago. i particularly wanted something decent but not perfect. i've cleaned it up a lot, but not completely.

obviously, no one is going to time you but yourselves. so, be honest... 5 minutes and no more. no 'testing' to see how it might look and thus setting up things before you actually start working. once you do ANYTHING to the image in the way of alterations, that's when you start the timer.

again, opening and saving are NOT part of the 5 minutes. you may also sit and stare at the image for hours if you like, but once you DO anything to the image, that's when the timer starts. no fudging... 5 minutes and 5 minutes only.

for a true test, no matter what you've got at the end of 5 minutes, post it!

Re: 5 Minute Art

Geeez... that was a hoot, Craig!

It was 3:45 seconds just to mask out the rose in quick mask mode. A little over a minute to do the sketch, shift the color. Just under the wire total time 4:52

Nothing I would send home to mama, but I beat the clock. :-)

Burp!

Re: 5 Minute Art

This was a hoot to do. Five minutes goes by really fast doesn't it?

What a great way to break in my new oven timer.

Thanks for the challenge.

Re: 5 Minute Art

well, you all did better than i did excellent! i'm particularly fond of peter's but all very well done!

and yes, 5 minutes is a heartbeat on these.

so here's mine, which, if i remember that short 5 minutes correctly, was done with a couple of flaming pear filters. you just cant sit and think at all...3 minutes gone...oh lord! zip, zip, zip..5 minutes!

ah, i remember the other step now that i've seen it again. i used a mesh warp first. lol. i was actually thinking of smudging, but that got dropped VERY quickly

* Applied half-tone filter
* Applied Palette Knife

Whew!

Re: 5 Minute Art

5 minutes, where did it go?

Not quite what I was planning, but here's where I got to.

Why is everyone else's so much better?

Re: 5 Minute Art

danny, fascinating!

skydog, love the spin effect!

palms, love the reds! i just added kyoto color to my arsenal. havent had much time to play yet, but i can see i'm going to have to. and sure, do all you like... but you cant carry over any unused minutes/seconds to the next one... 5 minutes each

gary, love the flood filter and grain!

i'll add here that this whole idea is somewhat inspired from 'speed painters'. i saw a show on this a while back and it fascinated me.

Re: 5 Minute Art

Another go, i wanted to see if i could do a ahb version in the 5 mins, well i sort of did but began messing round with the colour instead of tidying the outside up which i would of preferred to do with hindsight .

Re: 5 Minute Art

nancy, not sure what the 'strange' is in the image. it's a scan of a negative saved in .tiff and later converted to .jpg for posting here. maybe something odd in the alpha channel? what did you do and what were you expecting? and what was the information you found in the image?

Re: 5 Minute Art

The image on the left is what I would expect, the image on the right is what came out - doing the same steps.
What I did:
1. reduce noise max strength
2. autolevels
3. duplicate, invert and set to color dodge
3. gaussian blur the top layer

On the one on the left the original colour come through and the rest is white - this is the expected result
On the right - the colour from the top layer come through and the whole thing is overlayed with a cyan crazypaving kind of thing.

The culprit seems to be the red channel. Noise reduction seems to bring out information in the red channel and autolevels strengthens it (see second attachement)

In the original image its barely noticeable but the red channel is almost completely destroyed - but rebuilding it from approx 20% green restores it.

Re: 5 Minute Art

I had to have another go at this one. Don't ask what I did. It was a mish mash of things until the timer went. If I didn't like what I'd done, then I began again from the beginning (original photo) and did another 5-minute run. I even tried a fancy gradient map, that looked so awful after it was applied that I scrapped the idea entirely.

Great challenge. It has taught me how SLOW I really am.

Re: 5 Minute Art

well, you got me curious, nancy. i went back and looked at the channels in the original. the red channel is completely black. consequently, the .jpg posted here has no other data either. that might explain a few things. i'd be willing to be that i set something wrong during the original scan and that the flower isnt really blue, either. i'd probably have never caught this had you not seen what you did.

Re: 5 Minute Art

janet,

now dear, no fair starting over and not posting what you did on the first try you can always do another (actually, it's perfectly fine whatever you want to post. i just wanted to see the 'good' with the 'bad', regardless).

the one you did post looks good. i believe you've enriched it nicely.

zganie, interesting. you've almost achieved a dual tone here.

Re: 5 Minute Art

Pretty much straight filter work. The most time consuming part was rough selecting the rose from the background since I wanted to separate the two. I ran GIMP's Mosaic filter on the rose and ran GIMPressionist with my custom mosaic preset on the background. Added the grout (base layer) and invert bumpmap for raised texture. Done. Around 4.5 minutes (phew) mainly due to my old and under powered machine. lol

Here's the high quality full size version.

About 2 minutes... texture mapped.

Craig I didn't go monochrome on this, picked bright green and dark blue from the actual photo for the mapping. This really looks wierd, doesn't it?

I used the whole 5 minutes. I duplicated the image, reopened, used art history brushes using a Wow oil brush preset, layer copy, used an overlay mode ( forgot which one), flattened and saved.

Re: 5 Minute Art

cathy,

i looked at yours and i thought, 'now, where have i seen that before?'. and it came to me; it reminds me of a pattern i saw in fabric once, very thick fabric, like you would use for upholstery. there's something about the texture there that does it, i think. and just in case you're wondering, i liked that fabric nicely done.

cupcake,

ok, that's cool. looks like a pinwheel in a water shower. very nice, whimsical.

Amazing Circle Action.

Also ported in GIMP and added Gimp's Polar Coordinates at 180 degs and mirrored with reduced opacity (erasing the white out area) and GFlare filter.

OK...since this filter is not useful for anything else, I used VP embroidery. I spent more time getting the resolution down than creating the piece!

Virtual Painter Embroidery. A neat effect with no possible uses.

Re: 5 Minute Art

About three minutes. Set color profile to sRGB, Equalize histogram, enhance colors, 4 dups offset darken mode, set a focal point, paint with Impressionist, fine tune colors, add an edging.

Re: 5 Minute Art

Cupcake,
Yours blows me away. I am a man of the ocean and water in general and your color usage and the overall feeling of fluidity are great. I don't know if you dive or not but there is something this image reminds me of. In the blue/green oceans of areas like the keys and such I love to slowly descend til I am just a foot or two off the bottom, find neutral buoancy and just lay there motionless. You tend to become part of the rythym of the ocean. Undulating, swaying to and fro. You basically become one with the sea. La Mar............That is how your rendetion made me feel.

Used photoshop , duped, unsharp mask, anisotropic x 2, spiral effect, masked, touched up with black brush. Sharpened after giving it a texture. Yes, all in 5 minutes.

Re: 5 Minute Art

This just proves my fears...edits ALWAYS take twice the allotted time...at least.

Re: 5 Minute Art

hehehe, nasturtium it's true, isnt it. the more you work on a piece, the more work you feel it needs

Re: 5 Minute Art

Hey All !!

Everyone has done a great job with this image.

Here is my 5 Minute attempt....

Started with simplify 2, added noise, then used the craqueluer(sp?) texture.

Y'all have a great day.

Joe
