PHOTO ART: Mini-Challenge #01

This is the first “mini-challenge” in the Photo-based Art category.

Unlike “official challenges” for this forum posted here, this one will be self-contained within this thread. It is intended as a souce of amusement until the next official challenge is posted.

Rules are the same:
* It’s a challenge, not a contest -- intended to sharpen skills and to share techniques.
* Everyone who participates is a winner.

#1 – Mountain Man

This image was originally posted in the Technique > Critiques/Opinions/Help requested forum by one of our regulars, Fugitive (aka: Greg), who graciously approved using it here for this purpose.

Guidelines:
1. Convert this image to “art.”

2. Use any style or format you like, e.g., oil, watercolor, sketch, stick figure, whatever. Makes no difference which application(s) and/or plugin(s) and/or filters you use. Want to hand paint it? Go for it. Wanna add a frame? Why not?

3. Have fun.

4. When done, reply to this thread and attach your work (don’t forget the 100K size limit).

5. For this particular thread, focus on the result, not the technique. If you did something unusual or discovered something really cool, by all means report it. If other members are exceptionally interested in the blow-by-blow steps or other details, they will ask.

Bottom line: Just do it.

6. Have fun

7. Did I mention, “Have fun”?

OK. Recess starts now.

OK, here goes. I had a lot of fun. So here it is for everyone to amuse over I wasn't trying to create a master piece, just had a lot of fun with the pallete knife. Looks more like a wildman than a mountain man when I got through Great idea, Danny, for those of us who can't pull ourselves away from the computer

OK. Wanda. I made up the rules. I can change them!

Generally speaking, how did you do this! Photoshop? Painter?

Do you use a tablet? (If not, add 500 to the 'amazing results' column.)

You better not change the rules Generally speaking, I used Painter Classic, brushes, pallete knife. Used just a little airbrush on the cheeks. Yes, I have a tablet that I just learned to use. Can't say how much i love it Couldn't live without it!! I selected with the lasso tool, used paintbucket to change the bk/grnd. And then......Well that's it.

Cool idea, Danny! But if you keep it up, I'll never get any REAL work done... LOL

Anyway, here's my contribution....

The tablet is mightier than the mouse! Glad you love it.

BTW, If anyone wants my Painter Classic, they can have it.
