PHOTO ART: Mini-challenge #88 – Baby Peek-a-boo

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

The base image can be downloaded by clicking the link below the photo description.

Found this image on another forum and the photographer (dad), Greg Szczyrbak, graciously consented to letting me post it here.

What can I say: She's adorable, isn't she? Let's see what you can do!

Such a sweet little girl.

Of course, I couldn't just leave her in a room full of toys. No sir.

Sooooo...here's a little fairy watercolor.

And since I spent so much time on it, here's the "original" fairy photo manipulation that I put together to base all of the art on. Just wanted to share!!

Thank you both so much! It was a great photo to begin with...that's more work than coming up with a good interpretation. She's just a good subject.

Here's another one. I guess she just inspires me!

This feels like an abstract oil painting portrait, so that's what I'll call it.

Amanada:

Were you inspired or what? These are very creative.

Let me guess themanda it's snowing in your area? lol

LOVE all of them! can't even say what submission is a favorite they just got better and better! great subject to work with.

Danny the scetch is priceless - just peeking around the corner, as if to say "Don't come in and see what I did"

I have to agree with everybody else. I love them all but I think the photo and the fairy oil are my favorites but as I said I love them all. Great work Themanda.

Thumbs down

kudbegud...

An awesome interpretation. Texturing / framing are just right. Well done.

Amanda, I really love how you placed her in the flowers like a little fairy...ingenious! My favorite is the first one...the delicacy of the lines and colors suits the fairy theme, I think.

Kud, nice job getting rid of all that background and keeping the emphasis on this little cutie. Well done!

Thanks to all!

I am the father/photographer. Thank you all for the amazing renditions that you have created. As I mentioned to Danny, I am new to photoshop et al and I was very curious about the possibilities. Brilliant job everyone. My wife nearly cried when I showed her some of the various renditions.
