Nice UF Fridays - May 14, 2007

Unfortunately, Michèle has found that increasing obligations in her life have necessitated ending this challenge; hopefully circumstances will permit her to revive it at some future date. Thanks very much for the themes, Michèle; they were a great prod!

Michèle's theme for this week is the musical instrument, the "organ".

This one has me stumped, so I'm going to have to put this one aside for a while until an idea for something that fits strikes me.

Michèle's theme for this week is "birthday". She's also switching from weekly to every second week due to time constraints, so I may actually catch up!

Michèle's theme this week is "triptych"; here's my effort, weeks late. As always, a larger version can be viewed by clicking on the image.

... and, because I often have trouble making just one version of an image and then settling on just one of the however many I end up with, here's a coloured version of the above image:

Michèle's theme this week is "thirteen", with the additional proviso that the image contain some black. This one took me a while; I'm not superstitious, but wanted to make something that perhaps felt a little spooky. To reflect "thirteen", I used Damien Jones' excellent "deluxe clipping" transformation formula to divide the image into thirteen parts; using this transformation in such a way is not an original idea of mine, rather, it's a technique I learned in Janet Parke's simply outstanding Ultra Fractal Masking course.

Edit: I forgot to mention that the image title comes from the children's book of the same name written by Maurice Sendak (link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Where_the_Wild_Things_Are).

If you'd like to see the full-size version, just click the image.

Michèle's next theme is Egg, and the challenge is to produce images containing one or more coloured eggs; the image background is to be greyscale. Here's my entry:

Michèle issued her first challenge last Friday, asking for images that represent "spring", and include the colour yellow. This is what I came up with (clicking the images will provide a larger version of each):

Whew! I figured out enough to get started; I expect to learn more of the nuts and bolts as time passes ...
