Robyn has declared April a month of looking back at at what we have done, a month of reflection, or a month of do-overs. I was very new when I attempted my first One Four challenge, and I was so excited. I thought I could use my extensive artistic talent (or so I thought) to create some fun and amazing images. I was actually quite happy with most of the images I used, but a few could do with a do over now that I am actually now much better with Photoshop and Lightroom, as well as all my new filters, plugins and Nik Efex etc.
November for me was all about my Elephant, you can see all 4 versions here. Week 3 was my favorite, as it was something so strange and alien from anything I ever get to do. I have always enjoyed Pop Art, but never really had an avenue to create any. This elephant, is far from technically good, let alone perfect. But I had so much fun doing it. I may have to create one again.
The challenge has opened my eyes and made me go out and learn new things………..I have seen other peoples work and I wanted to emulate the style or feel of something, so I would ask questions and or read their notes and tried to teach myself.
In some ways I would like to try him again, but it just would not be the same. I love this image for more than what it is, but what it stands for; a life journey! it was not the most voted Pic for the month, but I still love him.
