(Posted for ForJazz because her net is down)

The Theme: IMPRESSIONISM

ForJazz said:
. I think the theme should be something like "Impressionism" -- as in the art era. Van Gogh and Money qualify as examples I believe.
The Rules:

Blending or any other graphics tricks are allowed.

Skitzo must remain the focus of the graphic.

The picture must not exceed 600 width in pixel size (easier for everyone to see and will not stretch people's browsers so you will have to resize).

Use either jpg or gif format so they all show when linked.

When submitting, please use your catforum photo gallery. Then there are no issues if your host goes down for a little while during the voting period. If they're all in the same gallery, then they'll all show up, or they all won't.

Submissions will be accepted until 2pm Saturday 2 July EDT.

Up to 15 entires will be taken, so if 15 are recieved before the ending time then the voting will start early.

One submission per user.

The Photo:


Have fun!

So would we make a background to put Skitzo in that is in the style of van gogh? Im a bit confused :?
I didnt do art in school, I did drama instead so I have no idea on this or anything artistic, if you didnt give an example I would have had no idea what impressionism is lol :?

Here's mine...I know Da Vinci didn't really paint impressionism, but It worked! It is called Skitzo in the Spotlight. Hope it looks impresionist lol.

I have a question.

Does the contest have to be entered by using a computer graphics program. Could I for instance work on this by hand with real paints etc and scan in my final result to the right pixels size, or must if be done only by using a computer graphics program.

As I am much better working with the real things i.e paints, pastel etc than I am using a graphics program like adobe photoshop.

Here is my entry. I tried to use complementary colours, with random brushstrokes against each other, just as the impressionist artists did. Impressionism is one of my favorite movements in Art. I love the way the artist used colours and brushstrokes against each other to create light.

For a change I am actually quite pleased with my entry. I am not 100% happy with it. But then whoever is.
