Though I could be wrong, I'm concerned that the subject of a chicken may be a too difficult to attract many entries. There are a lot of component parts and tricky textures involved, I would think. More specifically, I don't see how the usual methods of plugins, shapes, and such would help much. The only way I can think of to create a reasonable image of a chicken is to draw one.

There is a tutorial on that:

 

 

By the way, an old map can be interesting as a topic for OOTF - what do you think @Pixey? The basic idea is quite simple and it leaves space for imagination, variations, selfmade textures etc.

 

I saw the two of your comments together on the Activity stream and thought about it at once. 😏

I don't pick the themes, but @Ego Eram Reputo and @toe_head2001 who do, may choose this subject one day :)  Especially as it seems @Ego Eram Reputo is working on a Plugin for that at the moment 😃

When the prefect paint.net image is created, I will still be wondering "How they Do that?"- sigh☺️

I suggest changing the search terms for the keyboard topic to "musical keyboard images". As it is, most of the images are of typing keyboards. (Not that I really expect anyone will be misled into submitting a typing keyboard entry.)

 

I do have a question about what exactly the entries should consist of. Are they supposed to just be the keyboard, itself (i.e., the black and white keys); or are they supposed be of a keyboard instrument, like a piano; or are they supposed to be of the type of portable electronic keyboard instrument commonly called a "keyboard"?

I have changed the "Examples" hopefully to show what a musical keyboard looks like.

Not just a row of black and white keys like this 🎹 but longer?

 

I have removed the black and white keyboard image in the title. 

 

Boy, this subject is a minefield.  If it makes things clearer for everyone, I will attach this to the thread:

I love music. We'll see the rest.

 

Sorry for all the confusion, I guess the Google B&W image was 'suggestive' 😁.

 

When is a musical keyboard not a keyboard? (When it's an image like @toe_head2001 posted)  h3209.gif
