Tuesday’s Textures…

Shift Art Challenge time again, this is my entry for December……….titled Inner Peace, I used some different techniques on this one including motion and field blur, using Dodge & Burn to re define facial features and colour layers and blending modes to create natural looking makeup.

Not sure what the ShiftArt challenge is? Visit the website hereΒ to join and get more info. Basically each month you download a series of images and textures and you have to combine an image using what is supplied. There is usually 3 or 4 different sets and you must use at least one item from each set. This means everyone working on this challenge has the same limitations………but honestly it’s you imagination that sets the limitations.

I did a few other images as well, but chose the one I entered as it is much stronger image both visually and technically and was really happy with the end result.

I almost went with this last one, Lost Causes,Β just for the sheer madness and whimsy of it………nothing like a Woman Scorned! πŸ™‚ .
