I’m sorry for not posting yesterday. I tried to edit a photo yesterday and it just was not happening. Have you ever had one of those days where things just don’t click, no matter how hard you try? I guess yesterday was one of those kinds of days for me, creatively. Otherwise, I had a pretty awesome day.
I’ve had this photo for about a week or two and wanted to do something with it in Gimp. I snapped it with my cell while John was doing the “Taking Over” photo shoot. (Oh! John is also selling a few prints through deviantART now, so do check out what he has available there! They’d make really nice Christmas gifts!) I started last night and…ugh…we won’t go into the details. But here’s the end result. I finished it up this morning without too much trouble. And as a bonus, I found the fractal tool in Gimp and tried it out on the leaf photo I used to paint the leaf for the art challenge ‘autumn’ topic. It’s not anything fancy but it definitely fits the ‘oddball’ theme for Cee’s Oddball Challenge. These are my first two attempts at photomanipulation. I hope you enjoy them! For more info on either of them, just click the photos to check them out on my deviantART pages for each. You can download a copy for personal use only or purchase a print if either one strikes your fancy. 🙂
