  • Art Tag Quilt- Courtyard

    This is a slight variation on Art Tag. Instead of everyone working on the same image in turn, this time everyone gets their own section of the same image to work on at the same time.

    The Process

    I take an image and divide it up into sections. Each player will get their own section to redo. You can apply filters, brush strokes, tints and so on, but just keep the basics of the image there. Once all the images are submitted to me I will put them back together to recreate the photo. It should be entertaining and I think a lot of fun. You have a week to accomplish this, and once I get all the pieces I will post the results!

    This round starts Friday 20 February. So send me a PM if you want to play!

                    Rondon,
                    I like the simplified blocking of colors. A very nice photo art technique.

                    Roger _Ele,
                    Nice realistic touches such as the vine of roses along the wall, rich blue sky, and the glow added to the light and building’s interior. I particularly like the color you have added to the statue.

                    TwinbNJ,
                    Nice soft artistic strokes. Don’t forget to share your technique.

                    Svsg,
                    An ominous approach…poor little mouse.

                    Gina,
                    Very nice black & white. I really like the soft tone.

                    Welles,
                    What courtyard would be complete without an abstract sculpture and a duck in the fountain? Nice additions! That duck better watch out for the snake though.

                      I like the way this came out!

                      I duplicated the layer, desatureated, ran curves to brighten, then find edged. Duplicated the original layer and put it on top of the desat. changed the blend mode so many times I forget what one I picked! Then merged those two layers and went through the blend modes again, yup just kept going through till I found one I liked.
                      Flatten, dup the layer, run in Paint Engine, bring down the opacity and fill, flatten duplicate layer ran through PE again - I forget which brush strokes (sorry) then ran emboss on the layer, brought down the opacity and fill.

                        Nice job everyone. I feel that in future Quilt challenges, we should have a theme which everyone follows. In this image, I made it a night scene, gina has made a monochrome and some others have adopted a artistic approach. This way, the final picture still looks like an ensemble of unrelated images, rather than a cohesive unit. Maybe Paul can suggest us some theme in the next Quilt challenge.

                        What I did - I used Gimp.Adjusted the levels of each color to make it look like night. Then used a lighting filter to place a glow on the garden lamp. copy pasted snake and mouse

                          Good idea. I have to admit that I didn't really stick with the original instructions. When I saw my piece, I tried to add realistic touches to the image thinking that it might merge cohesively with the other segments. As a result I added the abstract marble sculpture and the duck in the pool. I was pretty far off.

                          We'll do better on the next one with a little directon. I like the idea of striving for a cohesive result.

                            Hi all,

                            I don't really think I want to end up with everyone doing the same kind of thing so that we have a framable finished art piece. I actually really like the variety of styles on the quilt. I think the goal is the experience of seeing and sharing how differently the same scene can be interpreted in technique and mood. I love the element of surprise when someone does it the same or totaly different. Sorry to be contrary.

                            Now quilts do sometimes have overall patterns, such as light, dark, light, dark, etc. Different squares could have a general brightness if one were to want a balanced pattern made of the squares. But that assumes a change in the overall look. Who knows, the next one we all might be putting in objects and not changing the look - so who knows ...

                            Just want to say two more things,
                            -Did anyone see the frog I hid in plain sight - kinda?
                            -I love the B&W, great infared photo mood.

                            Great job by everyone.
                            Roger

                              Roger - I agree with you, I like how the image has so many different styles. I love to see the different way people interpit the challenge.
                              With that said a theme type quilt would be an interesting add to the variations of Art Tag.

                              Roger asks:
                              "Did anyone see the frog I hid in plain sight - kinda?"

                              I noticed the lizard by the door, as for the frog is he/she in the fountain?

                                I'm kind of busy Oct and Nov, but I'd like to run a round of Art Tag, so I thought of a variation. It's not so much a "Tag" since each player will be working on their own. My idea is that I will upload a couple of images say 4, and each player downloads those images and then works at their...
