Post Creative interpretations: Violin

I thought this was a compelling image... It should be the basis for some interesting interpretations.

Have fun!

Let's see...this started with some simplification in PSCS2. Then took it into Gertrudis Pro (this is just one of several versions) then went back to PS for embossing and texture.

Violin of course

Dear Steve, I'll answer your question. First of all, this picture it's mirrored, cauze the strings are backwards, the stronguest should be at last.

Another thing, this is a cheap Chinesse violin, and a Fiddle for Americans it's a good violin to play country music. A fiddle have a low angle bridge, and this one it's high angled, also, the Chinesse guys don't do fiddles, they work for the World Wide Market.

Also the fingerboard should be low angled.

I'm a luthier too.

Gracias mi amigo.

I was only trying to have a little joke with my question. But you did enlighten me regarding the image being printed backward.

I did know a man who was a fine fiddle pklayer and injured his left arm in an auto accident. He re-strung his fiddle backward and fingered with his right hand and bowed with his left.

He should buy a left handed fiddle, he'll broke the violin doing that, because, in it's interior, the fiddle have different bars for the strings, and the trebles are lower tension.

Tell him to log into www.internationalviolin.com or write to sales@internationalviolin.com they sell great left handed violins, and the sales guy it's a professional fiddle player, he could adjust the violin to turn it into a fiddle

Danny, thanks for having another challenge. You're right, this is a compelling image and I found it fun to work on. The attached was done in PS using the Impressionist PlugIn with your own djroil-24 style.
I presume we are all limited to only one submission. Is this correct?

This was done for the joy of working on this photo and not for the contest.

I "watered" the violin and added a few embellishments here and there.

Enjoy.

Janet
