With the apocalypse due any day now, here's the perfect beverage to mindlessly cooperate. Member reactions:
Great concept. This beer should sell well in heII
Thanks Vlad, but a great example of how the voting on FN baffles me. Why is this getting 6's . I don't get it.
I ask myself that question a lot Swashbuckle. It's a matter of personal taste I suppose.
Yes. I think this concept was too cynical for some. But as you know, the voting focuses more on technique. Liking or not liking an entry can easily vary a vote more than 1 number off the mass average, which is why the karma thing is screwy to me. But I steer toward being a good citizen in spite of whatever happens with karma. I would admit that I was briefly tempted to stop voting at all. I'm grateful to everyone on FN. The education of the eye and artisanship is about as good as I can imagine. I try to learn from everybody.
Everyday it seems, something absolutely confounding comes from the Obama White House. Something Don Meredith used to say on Monday Night Football. "Turn out the lights, the party's over." Member reactions:
I love this. Nice "conflagration". What movie (or painting) is this from.
There are hundreds of great paintings of this classic view of the White House at night. The direct reference is The White House, by Jon McNaughton.
I could put an apple in the chop e say there lots of links....
Thanks. I thought it OK. I did the whole piece on a VIC 20.
I don't know I was just messing around Member reactions:
It is excellent but could be perfect. It will absolutely score better if you spend an extra ten minutes and buff out the crop chatter.
Thanks spinner I cleaned up the chatter and changed the base I didn't like it. I still try to work Photoshop the same way I do oils, sometimes you can get the same effects but not often.
Better.... Wet media and this digital stuff are two different bears but there are definitely similar mental processes.
Splendid. I am amazed this did not place higher. I did not want to step all over this chop with more blather butcontest is done so... see if you can find Topaz De-noise. That filter really helps kill all the fuzzies and is the filter of choice for most pros. Yo will still have to do a little smudging set at 5 and work with a point setting of 3, That is that extra 15 mins choppers talk about I guess. Anyway, going to my favs
This Monday we continue our freaking experiment with provided source images.
Photoshop this photo of the fire hydrant (image credit: Aprilzosia) any way you wish. Some examples are - re-shape and re-design this fire hydrant, put some animals and birds on it, use the fire plug in some odd way, make this fire hydrant image appear in posters and movies, etc. These are just some ideas.
This Friday we continue our freaking experiment with provided source images.
Photoshop this image of fire juggler any way you wish (image credit Sam Newman). Some examples are - making the fire juggler juggle something else or perform more stunts, designing a poster with the fire juggler, putting the juggler into some new environment, movies, paintings, etc. These are just some ideas.
Actor Charlie Sheen has been fired from his CBS sitcom "Two and a Half Men." Ironically, the network didn't pull the plug because of the star's recent antics involving prostitutes, drugs and multiple hospital visits, or his advocacy of crack cocaine — it was an amazingly insane rant he delivered while speaking to conspiracy talk show host Alex Jones.
During his interview, Sheen claimed he'd cured himself of drug addiction by blinking, ranted about his magical fingers and called his show's creator a "charlatan".
In this contest we ask you to show how CBS could let Charlie Sheen know he's fired - memos, official letters, billboards, post it-notes, postcards, magazine covers, or any other creative ways of your choice. If you choose the letter/memo type of entry you are encouraged (but not required) to make the letter/memo with attached (safe for work) photographic evidence of Sheen's actions that were the reason for firing.
Southern California had a tough weekend - dozens of wildfires are quickly spreading with gusting winds, causing the state of emergency in 7 Californian counties and putting thousands of homes at risk. Firefighters are working around the clock to contain the spreading fires and to prevent them from spreading.
Photoshop fire any way you like. Some examples are settings things a flame, shaping fire into something (objects, liquids, etc), making new products with fire (e.g. Fire Pepsi), adding fire to composition in paintings and magazines. Your entry has to include at least some fire in it one way or another.
Big story this week - wild fires in LA and a neavy smoke in the city. Which causes millions of dollars in damages to LA businesses.
Smokers don't buy cigarettes any more, and spend more time outside.
In this contest you are asked to include fire into paintings of your choice. You can set things a flame, or show the combustion aftermath - burned objects and landscapes, smokes. Feel free to show characters in paintings fighting with fire or enjoying it.
