reference pictures manipulation challenge

The goal of this competition is to create your own works of art using any photo or photos of your choice from Reference Pictures. We will add them to Reference Pictures Creations in order to both advertise and inspire Elftown members and general web-browsers to use Reference Pictures and spread the word!

Images that you submit here will be not be considered public domain, as with the Elftown Photo Reference Marathon and Reference Pictures. They will, however, be used to create a library of art to inspire others to use Reference Pictures and to advertise Elftown to other artists.


Contest Moderator: [Lothuriel]

Please read the [#RULES] before entering!


1. No stealing. Images must be created by Elftowners and posted here by the original manipulator. Stock used must be listed, and the stock creator credited. You may not use pre-manipulated elements.

2. Permitted stock: Only stock available at Reference Pictures may be used. Each photo used (referenced), must be listed with the entry.

3. Your entry must follow the set theme for the session you have chosen to enter.

You can still speak up even after the contest is closed, as long as the polls have not yet gone up yet. Complaints received after the aforementioned will not be considered valid. However, if you wish to query whether an entry is stolen art or breaks any other rules, you may still bring this up after the poll has been made.

2010-10-02 [Amanda Bastian]: Looks like fun! :D

2010-10-02 [Mrs Vicious.]: Im not a photographer really.

2010-10-02 [Chimes]: This is photomanipulation, rather than photography. :) You grab photos from Reference Pictures and then you edit(manipulate) them so that they fit the theme. Essentially it's making art out of already existing photos.

2010-10-02 [ZeoOfFire]: Hmm, not really a big user of Photoshop, but I suppose this is one way of learning! I'm in!

2010-10-02 [Mrs Vicious.]: I dont have photoshop.

2010-10-02 [Chimes]: If you want to take part but don't have photoshop, there's a program called Gimp which is free to download at :) It's what I started manipping on.
