  • Half-n-Half

    Ever play mad scientist as a kid, or perhaps experimented with some super glue? Well now’s you chance to digitally combine some items. How about a lemon-lime or a pine cone and an apple? You can combine fruit, vegetables, animals even people. Use your imagination and your manipulation skills and see what you can create! The goal is to try an make it look as realistic as possible. ENJOY!

    When you are finished with your entry post it to this thread (no URLs, please). We all will still expect some descriptions of how you did it, and you can also include your thoughts about where the idea came from, your creative process, etc.

    As always, this Challenge doesn't expire, ever.

    Well here at the lake we have what is called the "Duck Head Heron". This is a very rare bird indeed! You can spot this bird by it's large duck like head!


    Used two pictures I took over the summer one of a blue Heron and a baby duck. Added the ducks head and used hue and sat to bring in the color of the heron.

            RonDon,

            You have outdone yourself! Quite the creative masterpiece here and I love the surreal environment you have fashioned. Such bizarre creatures too! I’d add just a little shadow under the dog with the baseball though. Well done!

              Another approach to this challenge:

              Have you seen the latest Target commercials where they combine two objects like the following:

              1. a guy's head and his hair is grass
              2. guy spinning on his head and his legs are a sprinkler
              3. Group of people rowing and their oars are spoons

              These combiniations are very imaginative and turned out great! I thought they could help inspire others to try their hand at combining photos for this challenge! So look around your house or if you need photos to work with look on the web for some copyright free photos to manipulate.

                  Excellent job combining the animals and creating such a bizzare creature. Thanks for the link too, it's a pretty fun site...talk about being a mad scientist. I love how they animate your changes!

                      Thanks for that link - I almost burned my dinner while playing it! (Not a wholly uncommon occurence around here since I often become so engrossed in something on the computer that I forget I've got food cooking on the stove. )

                        You know the saying that people look like their pets....well let's see what you can create. Feel free to use your manipulating skills to really make the people look more like their pets...or the pets more like their people (grin)!

                        Dream
                        by T Paul
                        Everyone has bizarre dreams. Do you dream in black and white, in some color, or lots of color? I thought for this challenge you could go through your photos and create one to look like a dream. It could be bizarre colors, distorted images, or oddly placed images, but no walking through high school naked...

                        I'm about to finish my semester like Graphic Designer, and my Teacher [ ] want us to quote 3 Graphic Designers, for our Term Papers... Do you know some quotes? [I'll be in charge of the Bibliography]

                        Cold Theme
                        by T Paul
                        Well it’s getter rather nippy and I thought this gallery challenge should have something to do with the cold. So for this challenge think icy, frosty or frozen.

                        Take a photo and use your manipulation skills, actions, filters and so forth to add a touch of cold to it!
