Psychedelic Art
Contest Directions: Artist Andrew Norman Wilson turned vintage video game Ecco the Dolphin into psychedelic art video with psychedelic music. The full version of the video lasts 6 hours, and, according to the artist, will help anyone experience psychedelic meditation without the use of an LCD. Common characteristics of psychedelic art are: obsessively detailed images, all-over decorative patterns, a mélange of abstract and figurative motifs, snaky dissolving forms, ambiguous spatial effects, iridescent or acidic colors.
Create your own psychedelic art, or photoshop any famous posters, movies or paintings to give them psychedelic theme.

  • Psychedelic Girl by Bouguereau

    Psychedelic Girl by Bouguereau
        • Me likey! I didn't know Howard Stern had a sister.
        • Nice chop!

          I knew her!

          Hey geriatric, I remember "Orange Sunshine" . . . those little melt-in-your-mouth tabs.
          Trying to remember some of the other Acid names from those old days.
          (Orange Barrels, Green Diamonds, Blue Cheer)
          I'm afraid that I pre-date blotter.

          I think that the original used in this chop was William-Adolphe Bouguereau - Le Captif [The Prisoner], 1891 (right or wrong?)
        • Looks Very Beautiful Excellent work done
        • Excellent art work nice to see the girl in the colorful attire
        • touchy colors with fantastic work, love it
        • Congrats on the Gold....pree! Great work my friend!
        • This one as the closest to the Theme so...Congratulations. Brings back memories of the Fillmore West, VW busses and all the other craziness.
        • A predictable win - congrats! And since it's the only Remastered Bouguereau in the contest I've featured you here: http://www.bouguereau.net/

        • Painterly!

          Idle comment:
          I know Amanita is used here for your image work, but think that John would have chosen Psilocybin.

        • The orig artist of this image is Vladimir Kush,I like what u'v done with the Fractalius filter.
        • I stand corrected, thank you.
          FYI, I used the Topaz filters to create this.
          I will have to check out Fractalius!
        • Now I stand corrected Yeh give it a try, can have the same sort of effect as yours.
        • Kellie,
          Thanks for the link!
          Got a couple of his images stashed:
          Wind, Fauna in La Mancha

          Question the use of Vladimir Kush's or other contemporary artists in chops . . . Fernando Botero, Charles Browning, Anselm Kiefer, Raphael Olbinski, Jon Rappleye, Jacek Yerka, etc.?

        • Great one, with all the symbols and the olive leaf well done with your thought
  • 1969 From Woodstock to Vietnam

    1969 From Woodstock to Vietnam
        • Pretty good.

          Like the use of B+W for the dismal Vietnam pic's in contrast to the colorful more warm-fuzzy memories of the "Summer of Love".
          (Which IMO ended with Charlie Manson and his crew).
          Remember the daily body counts on the evening news?
          How come they don't include daily body counts and the live combat footage on the news these days?
        • Body count on the enemy side was more important then, now body count on our side is what counts.
          1969 is when I went from Woodstock to the Marine Corps.

        • Good collection and nice idea of half color and half black and white
        • Well merged with the color-black combination, nice idea to show the real suffering of the world
        • Hidden Author -
          I remember body counts on USA boys, not VC.
          If you went USMC, you must have enlisted, rather than a draftee.
          Good Tidings. (Semper Fi!)
          You must have seen a lot in the green.

          If our current news outlets were allowed to include our daily body counts and
          live combat footage where would popular opinion be these days?
          Would we still be in Afghanistan? Got some kin involved in that CF.

          Your chop's got:
          General Nguyễn Ngọc Loan offing Nguyễn Văn Lém.
          Phan Thị Kim Phúc (running ... on a road after being napalmed).
          You left out Bhuddist Monks immolating themselves in war protest.
          Why aren't any contemporary images of the carnage allowed to come out and grab us?
          Are we all ho-hum about it, or just not paying attention?
        • Semper Fi Steve10, just to answer a couple of things, believe it or not I was drafted in the USMC, right after woodstock, what a bummer it was.
          The monk immolating himself is there, barely visible, bottom, at six o'clock.
          This chop was very personal, didn't come out as well as I had in mind, lack of time to put more work into it.

        • Yes, I tried a layer of lines w blur,while trying to keep the characters with a transparent sharpness. I know contrast is highly favored here, but I liked the appearance of the piece as it is.

          Perhaps I should have titled it Purple Haze.

        • I was hoping someone would notice that the Britney video in the background was from "crazy" and tie that into Pryor's famous album, "That N_____'s Crazy".

          I also chose Britney because Pryor had a thing for white women, like his wife.

          Anyway, looks like you're about the only person who liked it, but whatever. I'm still happy with it.
