Bloggers Challenge – Inspiration Recreations, March


I decided to mix up this months post and attempted to do all the photos.  Hopefully this will help some of you decide if you can do the photos or not.  Some photos I choose look pretty simple or plain but sometimes it takes a bit of effort in getting the look just right, other times it can be easy.  The original plurk can be found here and there is also a page at the top of this blog where you can find all past months choices as well. (singular images of this post can be found in the flickr group, link at the end of the post).

Inspiration Recreation March

This weeks photos came about from a plurk I started where I asked friends to tell me if they had a favourite word.  I took a bunch of those words and image searched them, then chose one for each that I thought reflected it.  The words chosen were (from left to right, top to bottom in the collage pic): Fuck, by Vinny; Wonderland, by Melissa; Asshat, by Nigel; Poppycock, by Chandni; Bollocks, by Petrie;  Dichotomy, by Horrorcherry; Broken, by Aarya and Epitome, by Ama.  So below are your choices for the month based on the words of my friends over at plurk.  Pick one of the photos below (these are thumbnail images,  click to see original image) and recreate it however it inspires you.  Feel free to recreate a photo using the opposite sex avatar shown to the model in the photo, use a different colour hair/shoes etc.  However these photos inspire you to create art is what it is all about (as you can see from my photos, they aren’t perfectly exact.  But I do have fun creating the image however I can).

Bollocks - Aarya Broken - Aarya Dichotomy - Horrorcherry Epitome - Ama Fuck - Vincent Poppycock - Chandni Wonderland - MelissaAsshat - Nigel

Some of the words were pretty easy to find something for.  But with a rowdy bunch of friends, I should have known better than to ask for suggestions *glares at Petrie, Vinny and Nigel*.  Epitome was an interesting one.  I found many images but the one that grabbed my attention was the gorgeous Tilda Swinton.  Poppycock was another one that was funny to look for but I stumbled across Prince Poppycock, who I had not heard of before, and he is just simply stunning.  There were so many photos of him to choose from.  Asshat is literally an ass on a head.  I was doing some complex photo to begin with and making my own pose for it but it was proving to be quite a challenge; until the husband pointed out the above photo and I remembered the pose from !bang.  Bollocks I did in reverse due to my hair parting the opposite way to the photo but it still looks pretty good to me.  I forgot to include the dirty fingers for broken (although I think with the feelings the photo is portraying that it was meant to be blood) so I’m sure appliers or tattoo layers for that even exist in SL.  Fuck and Dichotomy required a fair bit of photo manipulation in photoshop with multiple photos taken and layered.  The hand in Fuck was literally just a floating prop in the photo to begin with and granny, oh how I love this avvie, was also another floating photo taken and layered on top.  Sometimes you need to do a bit of work and this is why I love doing these photos  It help me work on skills in photoshop and get better.

Join the flickr group for the challenge and share your photos.  Don’t forget the challenge requires you to reproduce one of the photos shown here.  While I love that people are getting all creative and inspired by RL photos and doing more, the flickr group is only for the challenge photos in these blog posts. Also don’t forget to leave a link to your blog in the comments below.
