A Touch of Color

Submitted by: Bell


Hey Guys!
This is my first Artifex Challenge and Im hoping you all will like it!

A hobby that my mom got me into is Photography Very Happy Looking at the world with an artistic mindset actually opens your eyes more, you begin to notice things you might have simply over looked just passing by. I'm currently taking an art class at college now and after weeks of drawing only in black and white we were finally introduced to color!!! Even though I missed using color terribly, I now understood how much color adds to a piece and the values within them. For example, a shadow is not always black, but rather a deepening value of the color around it. I am sure this will make more sense once you begin the challenge and see the value in the black and white image.


Aim:To create a color splash photograph using any element of your enviroment, to display the importance of color or lack of.

Rules:

  • Photograph used for challenge must be your own
  • Photograph must be taken of something that involves nature(landscape, plant life, animal life, sky, etc)
  • Artist must show their work and provide the original photo as well as the finished color splash
  • No pre-made work
  • Entries must adhere to Site rules
  • Entries should not exceed 500x500



Example:

Original:


Finished:




This technique is something I only just recently learned how to do in GIMP by using this tutorial, it explains everything step by step and is easy to understand. If you have any questions on it feel free to post below or send me a message =D
I hope you guys enjoy it

<3 Bell

This is an image from my summer vacation with Lindsay almost a year ago, the water was so blue it was like nothing else mattered.

P.S Apologies for some distortion in the image I took it as a panarama =(

I've been told it would be okay for me to participate in this challenge since it's different than the SOTM. Very Happy

I actually went and dug up some old color splash photography I did about 10 years ago, thinking it would work here, BUT I didn't realize the full theme was based in nature until I re-read the challenge description. haha! But that's okay since I knew the work was old anyway.

atm I'm going to be distracted because I'm working on a new siggy, so I don't have time to create a new piece for this challenge just yet. But I'm excited to hopefully jump into this and get something made soon-ish. (I don't wanna rush my current project lol)

P.S. Those cub's eyes are creepy hahaha! (but I <3 it^^)

P.P.S. oh by the way does it need to be one color only, or can multiple colors be splashed?

(Fixed who I was talking to, ty Alice lol)

Bell, this was an absolute blast! Very Happy
Unfortunately, I didn't realize "no premade work" meant all elements in a piece. So I had to delete the post.
My apologies for misunderstanding the rules. Sad

Edit*

Apparently it may not include old photos afterall, but I think I'll just sit out for a bit. Maybe edit this post again another time.

<*goes into Lurk Mode*>
