AOTW #3 POLL IS UP

Abstract of the Week Competition # 3

POLL IS UP ! VOTE NOW !Voting extended until Monday night !

THEME IS: "Elementals" !

Make an abstract that looks like it was made from an element (see description below for more details).

This is the first competition dedicated to Abstract Art created in Paint.Net.

The winner of AOTW Leonte has chosen a great theme. This one will be a little more complex and challenging so this comp entry period will be 10 days in length, and could be extended if enough people request an extension.

So here are the rules....

Theme is "elementals", making an animal from one of the following physical elements;

Fire (burning solid, liquid, or gas)

Water (ice, liquid, or water vapor)

Earth (soil, sand, stone, metal (refined earth) or crystallized minerals in any natural state)

Wind (if you do this, you're a braver artist than I )

Electricity (as in nature - lightning)

Light (as in the absence of darkness)

You must make an animal (humanoid forms included) from one of the above listed elements. The animal must be something recognizable, but obviously not necessarily real. You may also use combinations of animals as in the Centaur (half man, half horse), or even a werewolf (half man, half wolf). An example might be a dragon made from fire, or a fish made from ice or an pixie made from light (think Tinkerbell).

This should test your imagination to the limits.

You may use stock images as your starting element or texture, but not for the entire creature. To give you a specific example, you can use a stock image of water, cut out parts of the water, and use it to assemble a new creature. Much like I did in this image of a hummingbird made from water.

No images previously submitted will be allowed.

The VOTING period for this competition run through Sunday Monday evening (May 17th, 2010) at 7:00 p.m., Eastern Daylight Savings Time. All VOTES submitted up to that time will be accepted.

Round three is up and running. This is going to be a little more difficult, so if you have any questions, feel free to ask on here or by sending me a PM. Since there is an extended entry period, take your time to plan your image well. Good luck everyone and let's have some fun with this one.

My entry is an air elemental manifesting as a blowfish.

The fish's scales are made of a tiled manipulation of this

Welcome to my life! That is what it's all about - stretching to the limits & then finding you can actually be stretched even more.

I was asking about something like clipart ? B)

Yes, clipart should be viewed in the same manner as stock photos or renders. You can use one clipart and you will need to post a link to it.

I had my eye on fire too, but I hurt my eye on Thursday so I'm having a little trouble getting anything done. Switched to water, but the "water buffalo" isn't working out like I saw it in my head. Don't really know where to go from here.....I guess there's no place to go but up ! :D
