So, I was sent a link to an Adobe contest. On first sight it looked interesting. The idea was to use a set of specially designed brushes; made by Kyle Webster of Kyle Brushes, to recreate a possible (plausible) Fifth Scream. The painting was originally painted in four different versions by the Norwegian artist and German Expressionist painter; Edvard Munch.
The contest, called Hidden Treasure, is coming to a close in the in relation to the artist contribution stage. I have just completed my version, when I saw a very small footnote stating that the country I am resident in, is not eligible for the contest; I just couldn’t believe it! How can a European country be excluded from an Adobe competition? Asked the question, no answer. Seems like Adobe are avoiding the need to give specific details on the matter. Anyway, as I had completed the piece I decided to post it anyway.
So hear is my project and images to support my entry into the competition. You can find my Behance project here, if you’d like to ‘Appreciate’ it!
1 creative person, slightly matured
2 tablespoons aptitude
1 piece of aesthetic flavouring
6lbs hard work and sweat
4 ideas more than most
salt of the earth to taste
Take a creative person and stir in some aptitude, thoroughly from the start. In time, mix in the aesthetic flavouring with the most appropriate tool at hand, and then, fold into the mix as much of the hard work and sweat that the mix can take. Sprinkle in the ideas; the more the better. And finally, as all is cooking, a pinch of ‘salt of the earth’ to give it the necessary character. Leave to cook over time and serve when required. Tasty treat in a tasteless world.
