    See below for "Information and Guidelines."

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

    PHOTO ART: Mini-Challenge #31 – Yellow-pink Rose

    This is another image courtesy of See NOTE below for details; if you have not visited this site before, by all means check it out.

    I thought this was a compelling picture to inspire another round of creative energy. If you close you eyes and concentrate a few seconds, I’ll bet you'll start to 'smell' the incredible fragrance.

    Enjoy the trip…

    Unlike “official challenges” for this forum which can be found here, this one will be self-contained within this thread. It is intended as an opportunity to engage in this artform until the next official challenge is posted.

    The rules are more-or-less the same:
    * It’s a challenge, not a contest -- intended to provide opportunities to experiment, share methods and/or techniques and, most importantly, have FUN.
    * Everyone who participates is a winner.
    * There’s no expiration date.

    1. Use any method, application(s), style(s) you like:
    . * Convert to sketch, grayscale, abstract, watercolor, oil painting, pen-and-ink, Conte crayon, impasto, van Gogh or any style of your choosing
    . * Add elements from other images (collage) or replace the background
    . * Hand painting? Tracing? Freehand? You bet. Always appreciate entries of this nature.
    . * Apply filters from your favorite application(s) or tweak it with 3rd party plug-ins
    . * Feeling animated? Put away those pruning sheers!
    . * Any or all of the above

    Bottom line:
    How you create this masterpiece makes no difference. Whatever floats your boat as long as you follow guideline #4 in the process.

    2. When done, reply to this thread and attach your work (don’t forget the 100kb size limit).

    Note: Multiple entries OK if you’re so inspired.

    3. By all means include some verbiage on how you achieved your masterpiece so others will benefit from your skills and experience. Make it as descriptive as you like. Grammar and spelling will not be graded. Priority given to content, not how it is written.

    4. Have fun.

    Pastel rendition after Degas.

    Most of Degas' pastel has green undertones so I put a green underpaint and then used "pastel brush" and "chalk brush" using art history brush and history tool brush.

      Degas would be pleased with this rendition, Tony. Another nice one and great way to get this thread started.

        Don’t ask! I don’t know how I did this

          angue; That is so cool, the color and that underpainting is just right.

            How the heck did you do that? (Oh... never mind! - I didn't really ask that! )

            Just incredible, regardless of how you did it.

            When you get time, check the e-mail I sent earlier today. Need some 'tutorial' tech info from you.

              What can I say that has not been said already. As a matter of fact, I look forward to every new mini-challenges hoping to see your contribution. And I am never disappointed.

              I like this rendition because of the pencil and wet-on-wet watercolor technique. Just a hint please on how you did it.

                I like to use polar coordinates distortion to make "polar vases", so this seemed like the right time to place a flower in one.

                Tony and Steve -- beautiful artistic pieces. I play around with Pshop, you both create works of art. I like that!

                  Tony, that is gorgeous! How did you do that? (ducking)

                  CJ, WOW! Thanks for reminding me that polar filter exists...never found much use for it. You ought to put this tip in the forum called "photoshop filters: new uses...etc" or something like that.



                  • #10
                    That is such a cool effect. Very creative use of Polar. (Nice to find useful application of some of the more obscure filters.) What did you use as a base image for the "vase"? (A vase, by chance? )

                    Hope you ducked fast enough! BTW: Did you get my plea for "need pix again"; 3-horses was the only one in the group I could open.

                      Here's my try.

                      Sarted by using Image/Adjustments/Replace Color and selecting the black area of the background and lightening it to grey then using the hue and Fuzziness slider to created the background coloration. I then switched to PhotoArtMaster for the watercolor effect.


                      Had trouble with the attachment. Will try again.

                              Everyone beautiful as usual Here's my small contribution. The first thing I did was to apply smart blur, dry brush, watercolor.
                              Duplicated, Image adjustment invert. Linear dodge, gaussian blur. Used eraser to erase and bring back some of the color. Several layer masks with different colors, taking off with wet media brushes. I hope this makes sense
