Thanks , Abbie. One thing I learned on joining this POD !........that all my images worked as originals, but not for POD, (my style then was to heighten the
texture of the canvas as part of the original's truth about it being PAINTED).
So, I learned how to use lowly Picasa to 'improve' the Art for print . I have no qualms about doing that. I call the process: enhanced, without apology.
All the above to reply about 'one-click'....that, fortunately I couldn't, wouldn't 'do' , but, everyone here is trying to attract buyers , and make their art
unique, for that purpose..........and good luck to the one-clickers.........their purpose is to entice sales........exactly why we're here, imho.
FAA is not a High Street Gallery with a set choice of work it supports, it is for any/all artists to use to the best of their ability,
incl process, to
GET A SALE!
I have so much fun with these challenges! This is such a cute image of Abbie's sweet dogs. Since they looked at attention and were at a cute pose I thought it looked like they should be on a Christmas Card. I put them in front of a winter scene of snowy trees and put seasonal bows on them as well. I processed the image in a slightly graphic and illustrative style. I added the words "Happy Holidays" to finish it out.
I am not even close to being in the league of talent that I have seen so far. I have a little software to help me do something; but I really can't compete at this caliber. I may enter the contest, but I won't post here. Good luck everyone.
I painted the entire photo in Procreate with a hartz blending brush, added some oil paint and more blending. The Dogs were repainted entirely as well. This photo edit was done with an iPad and pen. Once the blending and painting was complete, I used two apps to apply snow like effects. The tiny dots of white glimmering snow were applied in strokes with the pen on an iPad. All I can say is I loved, loved, loved doing this edit. I am in love with these cuties, and when you paint them, blend them...you just fall in love with them. oooodeeee! Thank you so much Abbie.
Abbie Shore's Oct 2020 "Edit This" challenge submission #1.
In this version I went for an amusing edit. I lengthened the left side and bottom of the image and cleaned up the floor which had berries scattered around on it. I straightened out the original image and replaced the original brick wall background with a police lineup wall including heights written on the sides. I also put police department signs on the dogs showing their case numbers.
OMG.. .I love all of these edits... I love these challenges and this will be the first time I am here at the beginning of a contest.. I usually find out about with a few hours to create.. now I can put my thinking cap on and see what I come up with.. Thank you Abbie for this fun.. I can't explain how excited I get to work with whatever ypu present to us.
A socially distant Happy Halloween! This year should be interesting! I don't know what everyone is going to do but I'm not comfortable handing out candy this year. I haven't even gotten my flu shot yet!
The background is one of my images from my Harvest Collection. I also added the pumpkins.
They do say that dogs are very loyal, always a friend, and there when you need them. Married they stay together forever, chase squirrels together, and use the same hydrant. You can often see them running in a field after a Frisbee, or chasing a car, and mailmen have no chance when they team up.
I usually don't do a second entry but this one is so fun with these sweet dogs. I wanted to put them on the side of a pathway in the country and I added the deer as if they were walking on the path and the dogs waiting to ask their Mum if they can play with their new friends.
Besides dressing our two favorite doggies as masked crime fighters known as, "The Dynamic Duo", I've added a textured background which I blurred a little, a "bat signal", and two lines of text in orange with the theme of dressing for a Halloween Costume Contest. The caped crusaders are ready to party!
I said I was not going to post anything here, but decided to do it anyway. This is the best I could do. I hope I did Miss Hannah, and Mr. Darcy some justice.
First: I took my painting, and added a nighttime application, and rain. I took Miss Hannah, and Mr. Darcy and downsized them to fit the artwork. They are waiting for their beloved Miss Abbie to walk them home.
Second: I placed Mr. Darcy in the beaming light in this magical fairyland, which is an original art piece that I painted. The concept is that Miss Abbie was on a search for her beloved Mr. Darcy (to the left) and the magical flower illuminated the spot where she could find him.
Third: Miss Hannah, and Mr. Darcy poses with their royal family. I separated the dogs from the original photo. I enhanced the color of the dogs. Then I mirrored Miss Hannah. Then I enhanced the color of the photo and did a soft silhouette to the entire photo.

I removed the old cable that was on the brick wall, converted to sepia, added a pencil drawing effect, added textures including rain drops, rain, raindrop splashes and ripples, white vignette, and some other grunge effects.
Miss Hannah and Mr. Darcy are at their first Zen Session for Dogs. I took a photo from my vacation to Cartagena, Columbia in 2017 and imagined it as a zen room for dogs...LOL...What we do for our fur babies who we love so dearly!
Thank you, Abbie.
Some hand painting on a layers program, color adjusted on the curves, the background removed by hand, sketching in black applied. I'm not sure what happened to the thin black border, may have uploaded the wrong image. Checked; the black border didn't show up on the copy but it is in the thumbnail. I noticed it doesn't show up in the framed print example either. It would have been nice for the contest. Possibly Shaun could make adjustments for, say, thin black borders on the edge of the image. Possibly my uploading a JPG would solve the problem. I tried a JPG, it didn't make the black border appear.
Should the artist who provides the original image not be able to live without any of our creations (ha ha) would it be possible for you to give them a copy, Abbie? They can certainly have mine.
I see some really nice work and some very humorous ones!.
Brian, your Batman image made me laugh! The dogs look so human and their integration into the image is extremely well done.
