December Doodle #6 [WINNERS ANNOUNCED] Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

18 December - Holiday Art!

Contest opens now! Contest will finish at midnight at the end of Friday night.

Today's task is image alteration! Too many of our planet's great art galleries seem to be refusing to give way to the holiday spirit. I offer to pin tinsel around their Old Masters, and they say it would spoil the frame. A bit of spray-snow on "Starry Night"? Nope. A Santa Hat on the Mona Lisa was also not a well-received suggestion. Twinkly lights on the Rothko? Apparently "not in keeping". Small spray of mistletoe in each corner of the Mondrian? Would allegedly "unbalance the harmonised triumvirate of space, shape and color".

So, we'll have to do it ourselves. By which I mean, I get you to do it.

1. Find a famous painting.
2. Download an image of it.
3. Alter the art to make it more of a jolly winter holidays piece.
4. Save your altered version as a .jpg or .png, no larger than 600 x 600.
5. Save the original image as a .jpg or .png, at the same size, so that they can be directly compared.
6. Upload the original and the altered version to a hosting site.
7. Post both as images into your entry post.

You can make as many changes as you want, subtle or obvious. Ideally, the picture will at first glance still look like the original, but closer inspection will reveal its quintessential holiday flavor! You may borrow game art for this, if you want to, and you may also use public domain material from other sources. So if you have mad photoshopping sk1llz0rz but can't draw, you should still be able to have a go at this doodle!

To upload your images - when you've got your correctly sized original and altered versions, you'll need to upload them to a hosting site - either web space of your own, or one of the many file hosting services available, such as flickr.com, photobucket.com, imageshack.com. You then have a url for each image. Make sure your image links do not require viewers to register or download anything. Use the "Preview" button before posting your entry, to make sure the image is showing correctly. Remember to press "Reply to this post" instead of "Post new thread"!

In your event post, you should include:
-- pirate name and ocean
-- the name and artist of the original work
-- your orginal art image, followed by your altered holiday art image, each posted as an image into the thread using image tags, as shown here

As a reminder, please read the general rules before posting.

Go Doodle!

I know! At first I couldn't notice any differences, but after closer inspection, I noticed she replaced the flowers with snow flakes. That's all I think she changed.
