digitally altered images

Item #182 - THIS ITEM MUST BE POSTED ON SOCIAL MEDIA PRIOR TO THE END OF THE HUNT! Seamlessly modify using photoshop (or other digital altering software), a well-know oil painting by adding in an anachronistic element. For example, if it were a Monet, you might put one of the ladies under a parasol holding an ipad. YES, YOU MAY DIGITALLY ALTER THE IMAGE YOU ARE SUBMITTING… with a catch. The anachronistic element must be rendered seamlessly into the image in the style of the original painter or creator. It must look like a part of the original composition; we should not be able to tell it was added in later. Post the image on FB and/or Pinterest. Submit the image you take on our site, but provide the link to your social media post in the comment field of the submit page. #gishwhesModernMasterpiece

“Temptation (The Livestream)” by Adolphe William Bouguereau, 1880 Oil Painting

anonymous asked:

I think I missed a post, how did the snail guy discussion started?

Basically, in the comic Sans texts this mysterious unnamed person who is known only to sans as “Snail Guy” and who Sans assumes is a guy. 

Snail Guy is known to use VARIOUS EMOJIS, speaks with a lot of EXCLAMATION POINTS, and LOVES SNAILS to the point of digitally altering their images to be PINK AND SPARKLY using PHOTOSHOP, but they are NOT VERY GREAT AT IT. They are of AMBIGUOUS GENDER thus far, and go to things called SESSIONS of UNKNOWN BUSINESS. They are KIND and CONCERNED about Sans’ well being, and seemingly DESPERATE for a friend, being as that Sans responds to messages VERY LAZILY. Almost coming off as ALOOF and DISINTERESTED. Sans thoroughly ENJOYS their company, but is a bit too much of an ASS to admit it.

And now there is a poll, with TORIEL being at the top, a LITERAL SNAIL under, and NAPSTABLOOK and ASGORE being close behind.

However, as people have pointed out, I did not include GASTER in the poll, which RAISES SUSPICION

Slide Show: Craig Creek, Craig County, Virginia, October 1977.

Kodachrome 64 slide film.

Of the hundreds of rolls of film I sent to the Kodak lab for processing in the 1970s, only one came back with an apologetic note that began, “Due to an unfortunate laboratory mishap…” But in a time when there were no quick digital means of altering images I was pleased with the otherworldly colors rendered by the chemical mix-up. Even so, I am glad the damaged roll was from a walk in the autumn woods, and not shots of a zeppelin bursting into flames or Jesus returning in the clouds or a toddler being rescued from a well. 

I’ve been on Tumblr, Twitter and Instagram for awhile now and I’ve looked at more photo’s than I could possibly remember.  It seems that digitally altered images are now the norm so I thought I’d try my hand.  Here’s a shot of Lake Superior that I took last fall with a shot of the moon I took during the last “blood moon” with some photoshop stars thrown in for good measure.  Is this still art?
