Fine Art America's admin, Abbie Shore's Edit Challenge 22. I'll call this entry, Rhino Rodeo. Just a fun idea of putting the men of the roughest, most dangerous sport of bull riding into the event using Rhinos instead of bulls.
Fine Art America's admin, Abbie Shore's Edit Challenge 22. I'll call this entry, Rhinos OOF. OOF stands for Out Of Frame, also known as OOB (Out Of Bounds). It's a psuedo 3D effect commonly used in advertising because of it's "get your attention" effect.
You know children are pretty lucky today. With the use of computers they can create models of animals, then print them in 3D on a printer, sometimes in colored plastic and create physical objects to be used as toys. That's amazing...
But they weren't special.
In my day we had it rougher, the time it took to find just the right animal, and cast a spell on them, enchanting them, it wasn't easy. You would have to shrink them down so they were in the proper scale, and there was a lot of tweaking involved. Finding a box big enough for them, where they would he happy, was also a tough task. Keeping them in the box was also hard, its not like you can glue them or chain them in place, that would be mean.
And if you wanted something like a mountain, you would have to just make that from paper and shove into the background, people would totally notice a mountain missing. Tree's were easy, but you have to get them in season, so it was always important to stock pile them from different seasons, with a spell cast to keep them from changing or dying.
You really had to watch out for accidents, those little animals, they can't quite defend themselves like they could when they were big.
I am not in the contest, but I thought I would share mine here for your enjoyment:
The supplied image was very good, depicting the contrast of manmade environments with the plight of the rhino, stuck in the manmade world unable to find a natural habitat. I couldn’t improve on that so I decided to go retro, reflecting on the past, calling it Reflections. I removed the manmade elements and added a waterhole reflecting the Rhinos. I added a baby rhino symbolizing hope for the future. I added a lake and some mountains reflecting in the lake. Enjoy.
