Re: Creative interpretations: Piano Keyboard

Oh, how I love images of keys and keyboards!

Here's an impression of music being made -- used noise, distort, sketch, hue/sat, extrude, blur-zoom among others

Sort of went wack with the Gradient maps in GIMP then vectorized it and blended that back in. Here's the hi-rez version.

Re: Creative interpretations: Piano Keyboard

I really like your reflective interpretation Pavel. I burrowed that aspect and went, well, a little further. Think of it as an abstract duet in D minor.

Now to stay competitive I have to add a hand or two.

Re: Creative interpretations: Piano Keyboard

Nice pictures.

Keyboard 2 I posterized and added some lighting.

The other one I forgot what I did first.
I know I added some lights in the end.

Re: Creative interpretations: Piano Keyboard

Pavel and Lon -- love your "reflective interpretations"!! Inventive and well executed.

lkroll -- beautiful tiling effect -- the more you look, the more you see!

summerz -- I really like the effect on the hands on the keyboard -- implies movement and adds interest to the image.
