The Six Monks ...

The Six Monks ...
Yet another creation from the 'processing room' for you guys to hopefully enjoy, but this time produced specifically with this week's Sunday Challenge in mind!

The challenge this week, if we chose to accept it, was to produce a photograph/image that portrays creativity.

My sincere thanks to my fellow challenger, Wierd Folkersma for allowing me to use one of his photographs, which can be found in the Notes, as my starting point.

From the moment I saw Wierd's photograph I was curious to see what I could extrapolate from all those interconnecting and overlapping branches. So it seemed an ideal choice for me to work on with this week's challenge in mind.

You can see more from my fellow challengers by visiting TSC.

Lebojo, Peter Zabulis, Mitch Seaver, Tess Mc Kenna and 30 other people have particularly liked this photo

Cool result, great colors and title! No resemblance to the original, if Wierd would have recognized it? ;-DD

autofantasia has replied to Dida From Augsburg
As it happens Dida, I probably could have achieved similar results working from just a screen shot, but that didn't sit well with me and, thankfully, Weird was willing to provide the image by email when I asked about it! :)

Yikes, that is unbelievable Paul ... great option for framing. Don't know how you did this but it is brilliant!!

autofantasia has replied to Clickity Click
With regards framing, one of these days I'll get around to getting some of my stuff done, but at the moment I never seem to get around to it.

As for what I did to it Chris, like I said to Mick, I'm not sure I know - lol! ;)

Great, I would not recognize my picture as the basic one if you did not mention it.
It is like a kind of mantram

Loving the mantram reference! ;)

Oh, lion cubs ... where might they be? Are they the dogs/wolves that Judith and I see? ;)

I LOVE Weird's shot but there is no way in hell my friend this beauty started from that beauty! NO WAY.. never lie to a witch!
19 months ago.
autofantasia has replied to Shuttering Yukon
I'm glad you love it Wendi, but I can assure you that this was teased out Wierd's original shot. Much manipulated and many sliders and filters applied, but all from the one original image ... nothing else has been brought into the mix!

As I said to Jan: dib, dib, Scout's honour ... honest! :)

As it happens I don't use fractal-generating software, so in reality aficionados of the artform might say it doesn't qualify to be referred to as a fractal, but I love the comparison and am pleased you like my work! :)
