[Uunusual Alien] Abstract art from a simple photo

in Alien Art Hive2 months ago

Hello everyone,

I would like to share with you a concept of the optical illusion genre but making changes by exaggerating the characteristics of an image.

Here you are following me, you have already noticed my image manipulation like:

Today, I use a banal photo (having a minimum of resemblance to something familiar) then I enrich it to bring out an expression.



The idea in this "essay" is to transform a banal image into an extraterrestrial character .

For that I rely on a photo which I took with like image something which already has a family form.

Then I try to bring out expression lines by playing with shadows and colors.

as tools I use the Gimp software for photo editing, because it is free (free) and it has many filters to give texture effects, etc ...

draft: here another try...play with the color palette to bring out familiar features




Raw material for inspiration, an already familiar shape

To do this work I used a flower, the Hypericum calycinum Flower

This is the type of flower used (well looked behind her)faded...
