Judy's hibiscus

Well, I have finally found my way to the art challenges. What fun. Everyone is so creative and there are so many ways to see a subject. I may do another because I had such a good time with it.

Very nice, Cathy. You've definitely earned your stripes in the dept. of creativity yourself. One of the things I like about the arty side of things is more creatove leeway and tolerance for "imperfection" -- (also known as artists' discretion!

Keep playing and having fun. It's good for the soul.

Cathy, I think of all the renditions of this flower, yours is among my favorite.

Very nice work.

alright, another animation. sadly, with the 100k limit, this comes out pretty poor here. and, on looking back on it, i shld have animated some of the leaves and parts at different degrees in the same frarme and maybe shld have bent some of the parts for more variety. nonetheless, a fun little animation.

if anyone wishes to see the full size, uncut version, i can post it on my shared space on another site.

oh, the technique here was to select out all the parts i wanted to use individually as new images. then, clean each of those up.

pull the background out and build in the now missing parts of it.

using the new background, make 5 more duplicate layers, giving 6 layers in all with this background.

taking the part that is most in the background in the original, place that in layer 1. rotate the image part 1 degree left and place it in the next layer, linig it up as closely as possible to the first layer. repeat for all other layers.

once all layers have all the parts i wanted, copy each layer out as a new image, giving me 6 new images, each of which has the parts one degree off from the last one.

load all 6 new images into animation shop in sequence in a new animation. add in some extra duplicate frames to give the back and forth.

save and optimize to get it down to 100k.

Here's my version. Basically just played around - first did glowing edges, then blended with soft light. Then messed with saturation and emboss.
Loved all the variations of this image.
Margaret.

marvelous, margaret. love the shades of green, the soft, darker light effect, and the dark reds of the flower itself. and that touch of blue just above the flower is perfect; just enough to distract the eye just a bit and add a bit of contrast.

Nice work Margaret and Neve. I love all of the ways that the simple flower can be interpreted.
