Cabbage Art & Scarf Invitational Set of Note Cards Reward.
You've chosen a very dramatic and colorful selection for the top six winners, which will be the Note Cards Reward. (See &/or join the Kickstarter project at: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/743498317/the-cabbage-art-and-scarf-invitational.) THANK YOU!!!
I'm delighted with the selections, since my own color sense tends towards the dramatic and colorful. These have been a pleasure to work with, and I think they are great together.
The quality of these winning selections prove to me the validity of my concept of crowd-sourcing the survival of the fittest decisions, which will be much more important (and powerful) for my some of next projects, which will feature more generations, fewer images. Many, many thanks for sticking with this somewhat demanding process. If you've been enjoying it, or have suggestions for future iterations, let me know. Thanks!
"CABBAGE IN THE ROLL OF VOLCANO" Finished Cabbage Artwork from the Cabbage Art & Scarf Invitational Kickstarter Project. This positively seething cabbage artwork apparently JUST HAD to come out today. I love it when that happens.
For other pixel painters, I used Camera 360, Tangle (several times), Percolator (several times), Big Photo, LOTS of iColorama (amazing app!) and the workhorse tools in Photoshop.
When I sort out and organize my pastel boxes, I make these grids to compare this piece of pastel with that one, to eliminate duplicates and near duplicates.
I like to make art with whatever I'm doing, so I make these color grids.
This Color Grid is from my most indulgent box of pastels, the Square Box. Not only is the box itself square, but all the pastels are square or rectangular - NuPastels, Terry Ludwigs, Great American, and so on. I prefer these shapes for the clear variety of strokes sizes they can make, and for their sharp edges.
