PHOTO ART: Mini-challenge #67 – Jack’s Cube

FIRST MINI-CHALLENGE -or- NEW TO PHOTO-ART?
See below for "Information and Guidelines."

PHOTO ART: Mini-challenge #67 – Jack’s Cube

Here’s another “mini-challenge” to play with in the Photo-based Art category until the next major challenge is posted here.

An example of the output desired by for this special edition mini-challenge can be downloaded by clicking the link near the bottom of this lengthy introduction!

IMPORTANT: This mini-challenge will be a little different than usual.

Instead of presenting an image for download and asking you to modify it as dictated by your creative instincts, this challenge will be to take a method described by Jack Zucker in THIS THREAD and apply it to a creation of your choice.

Note: For this mini-challenge do your best to keep the results as close to “cube-like” as possible.

Thanks to Jack Zucker for posting his method and for the inspirational image he created of himself with wife, Sande.

Have fun and Happy Holidaze.

====> P.S. Somewhere (and I've been unable to find it yet) member "omeyas" (aka: Frank) posted a similar technique. If you can find it, send me the link to that thread via PM.

INFORMATION AND GUIDELINES

Unlike “official challenges” for this forum, which can be found here, this one will be self-contained within this thread. It is intended as an opportunity to engage in this art form until the next major challenge is posted.

The rules are more-or-less the same:
* It’s a challenge, not a contest -- intended to provide opportunities to experiment, share methods and/or techniques and, most importantly, have FUN.
* Everyone who participates is a winner.
* There’s no expiration date.

GUIDELINES:
1. For this mini-challenge, use the method (or something similar) in the thread noted above. This is a departure from the normal mini-challenge where "anything goes." Let's see what you can do "with a cube."
. * Add elements from other images (collage) or replace the background

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

Note: Multiple entries OK if you’re so inspired.

3. By all means include some verbiage on how you achieved your masterpiece so others will benefit from your skills and experience. Make it as descriptive as you like. Grammar and spelling will not be graded. Priority given to content, not how it is written.

4. Have fun.


A special message to those who are new to Photo-art
… Who may be feeling a little uncomfortable about posting an entry.


If you’ve read this far, it means you’re at least curious. That’s a good sign.

But what if you’re feeling a little squeamish about posting your first image?

From time to time I hear from those who want to participate, but have considerable anxieties about posting their creations in these mini-challenge. “I’m just a beginner. My pictures don’t belong,” “I see the works of others and I know I’ll never get that good,” “How am I supposed to compete with those wonderful creations?” are typical expressions of concern.

To which I say: Put your fears to rest. This isn’t a competition. You will not be judged in the traditional “art critique” sense. Your honor isn’t on the line. This isn’t about who’s best.

Don’t hold back from participating and posting your creation because your initial attempts don’t measure up (in your own mind) to images generated by folks with more experience than you.

This is a no-fault, all-fun way to jump in the pool. Everyone started the same place: The beginning. Everyone who is more skilled and experienced than you got to that point by practicing, experimenting, asking questions, learning from others, and participating.

Can one learn without interacting with others? Sure. Can one learn as fast? Absolutely not.

When you participate, others get to know you. That makes it easier to ask them questions. Asking questions leads to learning from those with more experience than you. It just keeps getting better and better!

By all means give it a go. You’ll be glad you did.

The pep talk cheerfully brought to you by:

Nice interpretation, BK (aka Phil).
Here's a Christmas themed cube.
The outer edge of the cube were shorter than the front edge to give a forced perspective.
I also put a soft bevel and inner glow on the cube to separate it from the dark background.

BK -- what a lovely way to frame your flowers! Nice texture and shading also.

Tony - lovely way to add to the glowing effect of the candle and ornaments, with the cube itself.

pjb - wonderful use of the cube -- those snowpeople are adorable! Thanks for the lovely Christmas cube-card.

Thanks to David Kendall for finding it, CLICK HERE to see the post Frank (aka: omeyas) described his method.

A belated, "Thanks Frank!" for also sharing your insights on this technique.
