View Full Version : Paint this scene in a different style

Take this scene, which I did for the 30 minute challenge, and paint it in a different style or with different tools....ie, make it a watercolor painting or crayon drawing. You can add some details or change position of person in scene, if you want, but try to keep the same basic composition.....OK? Let's go paint!

Levant, that's very clever! :lol: LOL Inserting 'yourself' in the scene doing a painting. But I hope people don't get the idea the challenge is to EDIT the painting at the top like in a relay .... the challenge is to paint another version that uses similar COMPOSITION but different ArtRage tools or a different style.


Bumble...That's it....a unique and different version. I really like impressionism and pointellism....so I REALLY like this look you've created! :D

hmmmm.....interesting texture.

Which tool did you use here, you didn't say? Looks a little like it's been run thru a PS filter.

Levent Suberk

hmmmmm.... you are so clever dear Mary!!!! No, I didn't use PS filter, I made it with Artrage pastels and draw that heart with Artrage oils. When I want to paint this scene I doubled it's size then reduce due to small size. Allright Injun?

Mary

Sorry Levent...I hope you weren't insulted by use of the word 'filter' LOL

This is a really nice look with the pastels. I love the looseness you have.

Thanks Mary. It was a fun project to do. But I think I need to disqualify myself.

I'm new here and should have checked out the forum a bit more before I jumped in. In the first place I took more than the 30 min to do the work, more like an hour. And at the time I had not yet downloaded ArtRage, so I used what I had.

I thought I was working with a handicap, but maybe not. My work was done with a mouse and the paint tools of a photo editor, PhotoImpact.

Now before everyone gets a rope to hang me, please let me say that what I did was not a cut and paste job. I started with a blank canvass and only used tools that lay down color and blend it.

I now have ArtRage and I think I am going to like it. It has the "feel" of working with real paint and not near so complicated as the tools of PhotoImpact. But at first glance, there are some things that ArtRage doesn't have, where the photo editor can speed things along.

welcome pls8xx

why disqualify? artrage is good (or the best at the moment :wink: ) solution for natural painting. but it is not a shame to use other tools! make it easy, what way and tools you use is unimportant!
only what you have to do is saing the truth... :lol:

btw nice pitures in here...is a good idea mary...

pls8xx, just to clarify....the "30 minute painting" is another project. No time constraints here. The painting that started this thread was a result of the 30 minute challenge, but that doesn't mean you can't take whatever time you want.

It would be interesting to see, now that you have ArtRage, how different your same painting could look if you re-did in AR instead of PI.

Mary

I've been wanting to try painting something using the chalk tool.....but pastels and fall scenes are not my strongest skills. LOL Step back from your monitor a few feet and this may look OK. :wink:

Bumble
09-09-2006, 10:06 AM
That is really good, I Love the colours in that one and the style. Very good Mary :lol:

Mary

Thank you very much Bumble.

Anybody want to try a winter version?

Selby

I really love your thick paint, Selby! Tough to control sometimes, but your color and strokes make it very pleasurable to look at.

You have purity in your color.

Keep up the good work.

Selby

Thanks D Akey I am making myself paint at the moment to practice....was something i alway shied away from cause it was harder to do than pencil or markers :roll: but actually now im giving myself permission to not have it perfect im finding it can be rather good fun :D

A quickie in pencil. I then gave just a hint of airbrush to "lead" the eye into color, without pushing it.

Mary
10-09-2006, 10:30 AM
Selby....Nice twist on the theme....I like the monochromatic blues...makes me feel like he's fishing on a warm summer night.

halley....gosh! that really makes the scene look different. Good pencil work....great suggestion of detail. You have good control of that tool.

I just want to say, this topic is most interesting one.....keep going...where are the other artragers?!

Mary, I want to see your beautiful works in gallery page... you Injun.....

Mary
10-10-2006, 07:33 AM
Spread the word Levent....I'd like to see more interpretations too. :wink:

I've been swamped lately and haven't had any time to do any ArtRage for Gallery or anything else. I signed up for a couple of online software classes and it's proving to be "too much at once". I kinda knew that when I signed up.....LOL.....but one of the programs has turned into a real challenge! Not the nice, smooth operation like ArtRage!

After finishing i saw selby's version, i do notice the similarities

TheOcean

I made a surrealist version of the painting... Everything's different, but I tried to keep the shapes of things close. Hope this isn't TOO far away from what you meant, Mary. I'm glad I didn't go with my first idea: a minimalist one!

Selby
10-15-2006, 04:46 PM
ooh good stuff mbarren and TheOcean nice to see your take on this :D


Selby

Mary

mbarren....nicely done moonlight hitting that tree. Makes a great focal point. Cool. 8)


TheOcean....well, that defintely is surrealist! Took me a moment to see the relationship to the original project. :wink: But I do see it. Very unique and original. Forks as trees....hmmm. Pray tell, what is the meaning of the 8-ball in the sky?

Now you've got me curious about what the minimalist version would have looked like!

Well, Mary, if you imagine a hippopotamus in a tuxedo climbing a defective plastic house, you might understand the eight ball. Oh, and he's whistling the theme to "Bridge Over the River Kwai." In other words, it means absolutely, positively nothing.

On the minimalist version, I would picture something like this. Beautiful, eh?

Gosh, that's dark. LOL :wink:

Aaaah so, Curly Joe.

Minimalism is manner which you paint eightball of Damaclese hanging over head.

Must to contemplate is 8 on the hidden side?

Too complex for simple werewolf.

TheOcean

Forsooth! The autocratic cockroach glistens upon the upper syntax of Democratus, as the eightball traverses counterclockwise to Virginia.

Found amongst a pile of consumed innovation, the beach lifts to denial.

Challenging and interesting proposal. i'll try as soon as I've half an hour, but I think we should also paint with different styles the lovely Mrs Mary amusingly smiling and holding the hat on her Avatar! :lol:

Caesar

Here's the first delivery. Just one layer, brush only, standard paper, less than one hour. Nothing pecial I'm afraid.

PurpleSmash

nice i like the textures and i like the ease of it if you know what i mean.... its not flashy but its not to simple.......... better than mine atleast :o

Caesar
02-18-2008, 11:46 AM
Thank You Purple! :D The AR version resolution and colours are better, but still not such good work.
I saw You used paint tubes (I guess) and it's not easy at all. I worked with them experimenting their plastic effects some month ago and it takes time to get good results. :wink:
