New Challenge (5/24/06) – Painting/Line Art Challenge

This week's challenge is to get your creative juices flowing by only using the painting and drawing capabilities in Adobe Photoshop. You may draw shapes, create brushes, make paths, etc...BUT, you may not use a photograph of any kind. You also MUST use the provided images to come up with your unique design. You don't have to use all of the images...but, you must use at least one. Sound restrictive? This is the challenge! :)

Here is an example of an image I created awhile back. The only provided image was the black silhouette line art image.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting



Here are the images in .png format you are to use (click on the image to get a bigger image to download). You may recolor them, add to them, and take some away. Be creative, and see what you can come up with! :)



Have fun, and I can't wait to see what everybody comes up with!

Edited to add!

I see some people may never have painted in Photoshop...so, here are some online tutorials to help you get started!

Just found your site through a participant. I think I might just have to give this one a whirl since I really want to learn about Photoshop!

Not sure about this week though.

Bummer that I'm going to have to sit this one out. Not because of lack of interest, but because of lack of time! Yikes! This long weekend should have helped, but instead I am further behind!

I'll be back to play for the next one!
