One Four Challenge: December Week 2

December One Four Challenge Week 2

One Four Challenge: December Week 2

I love using abstract digital art to lead a viewer deep inside an image! The first edit of my December image became very vortex-like and reminded a few of us of Doctor Who. I thought I’d stick to a SciFi theme this week that is somewhat inspired by a surreal and brilliant scene within the film Interstellar. How would we see the passage of space and matter when moving at near-lightspeed? How would beings who perceive space in a different dimension to us, whether two or five dimensional, view our world? The mind boggles but it certainly makes for some fun artistic interpretations!

There are eight layers in my image this week which has once again been created using Photoshop. Initially I softened my subject with a Gaussian Blur, then applied a Faded Extrude filter to keep a boost of colour. I then applied a Motion Blur and created three copied layers which were flipped horizontally and vertically and merged with Screen Blending. As ever, many thanks to the lovely Robyn Gosby at Captivate Me for this inspiring challenge πŸ™‚

I’m still keeping the original secret, but here are the two edits so far for this month:

  1. Whahey!! What a fantastic rendition this week Sarah.
    I haven’t seen Interstellar yet, but I definitely got the Sci Fi vibe and yes I can see Hyperspace!
    Love what you are doing here – so creative.. and way out… in space πŸ˜›

    • “I’m the urban space man baby” πŸ˜‰ Interstellar was brilliant! Reminiscent of 2001 – A Space Odyssey. I was brought up on Science Fiction and Fantasy πŸ™‚ It led me to find some amazing artists like Rodney Matthews, Michael Wheelan and John Howe. They’ve really influenced my art over the years πŸ™‚ Of course, Doctor Who is a British institution!! Do you get the new series over there?

      • Glad you enjoyed Interstellar πŸ˜€
        Yes also brought up on Sci-fi or perhaps found it myself. Doctor Who was a staple in our house as kids. We loved it!! Still do. We are definitely influenced by things we enjoy.
        Yes we do get the new series – the day after you I believe.
        I confess to missing most of this series though apart from 5 or 6 episodes I think. Last one I saw was CP being the school handyman. πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ
