Welcome to Week 19 of the Renderosity Magazine Weekly Art Challenge! The aim of this challenge is to get everyone creating, regardless of tools or methods.
This week's challenge theme is color...with a catch
Last week I mentioned trying something a bit different. So, I thought it would be a good idea to explore Color palettes. Find a color palette you like and create something using that palette, or just explore the joy of creating color palettes. If you wish, you can submit your chosen color palette(s), and/or image using your color palette.
For this challenge, you can use any color palette generator (there are several available). I am partial to Adobe's color palette generator, as it offers plenty of options, it's easy to use, and quite a lot of fun. Check it out, here.
Hope you enjoy this week's challenge. And, if you have any suggestions for future challenges, let me know!
If you wish your work to be featured, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and be sure to include "Renderosity Magazine Weekly Art Challenge" in the subject line. All I ask is that for your work to be featured, it does not contain nudity, or otherwise could be deemed offensive.
Last week's challenge theme was 'emotion.' Here are a couple submissions:
This piece was submitted by artdreamer on Renderosity.
This piece, "Take Me Not My Son!," was submitted by APlusDesign.
But death never bargains.
When I thought of emotion, I thought of pain, sorrow and loss. And how we may be able to bargain with each other, but not with death itself. How it always seems unfair who death decides to take and when.
May all RIP."
Be sure to check out the rest of APlusDesign's Renderosity gallery here.
This piece was my own. An exploration in the fractal program Apophysis, attempting a rose. I've used Apophysis for years because it's a fun flame fractal program that I can get lost in.
I hope you enjoyed this challenge and you continue to follow up weekly. And, please, spread the word! You do not need to be a member of Renderosity to participate, and you do not need to submit your work if you do not wish to. This is a work in progress and the format may change as it grows.
Thank you, and have a creative week ahead!
The Renderosity Magazine Weekly Art Challenge appears every Wednesday, in which I provide a prompt of sorts, whether a theme, word, or idea. There are no strict guidelines, and any tools or methods are acceptable. You can use any software you wish, or use traditional means. There are no limits to where the prompt might lead you.
Each succesive week, I will talk about the previous week's challenge, show what I came up with, as well as the work of other participants, and provide the theme/idea for the next challenge.
There are no prizes for this weekly challenge at this time. This is just to get us all doing something creative, no matter the tools or methods.
