second stab at photoshop

wasnt going to a phoenix, but after i saw the form i just kept at it with filters, burn and dodge tool, curves and levels for color



Rated 4 / 5 stars

This is where I'm going when I die.

I'm curious about how this piece was created. At first glance, it appears to be real, but upon further inspection, the various filters and effects lend the picture to one's imagination. Did you use a picture of fire as a base, or was this created from scratch?

The phoenix figure is kind of evident, but only in a Rorschach-Test manner. As abstract art, it works well, but the figure could be more clearly defined if you want it to be. If I just looked at the picture, knowing nothing about it, I'd think it was just some fire or a portrait of Hell.

Overall, the picture looks neat, but there are two issues that lost you points. The first is the text; it seems unnecessary for the Art Portal, where you are credited and where the title is above the picture. I understand having the text if you were uploading this somewhere else, but it's extraneous and distracting here. If you must have it, organize it in a black bar at the bottom of the picture.

The second problem I see is an odd bar of color at the bottom, starting just above the "a" in your name, extending to both sides and the bottom of the picture. To see what I mean, look at the light flame in the left-middle of the bottom portion of the picture. I don't know if that's a rendering error or something, but it looks weird.

Nice job overall.

wow im surprised you found that overlay problem near the 'a' in my name, i never noticed that, i dont plan on fixing it since im kind of trying to work on other things but yeah, now i feel kind of nubbish

the original pic was a bucket with lots of rust on it, the filters really were what morphed it into an abstract image

without the dodge tool emphasizing the shape of the phoenix, it does basically loot like a lot of fire, but i wanted to have some kind of specific subject matter rather than just abstract looking flames
