Faking it ... again

Journal Entry: Tue Jan 21, 2014, 6:31 AM
So, I set myself a challenge to take a single picture and make a range of digital collages out of it in the style of as many as possible of my fellow (traditional) collagistes on deviantArt. 

Miss Charlotte Cracroft by hogret-stock


It was a surprisingly challenging task - and a real learning curve as I tried to imagine the choices and process of artists whose work is very different from mine. 
Here are the first few hommage pieces, side by side with a collage by the "real" artist.

A la Crussol12 by hogret     Gaining Ground by Crussol12

A la Robert-Alan by hogret      temptation by Robert-Alan

A la Kanchan by hogret     Homage to Klimt by KanchanCollage

Successful?  Or not? 
More to come ..

Anyone like to join me in the challenge?
Pick a source picture or scrap of something.
Choose three of your fellow collagistes.
See what you come up with!

These are very inspiring!

I've spent a lot of time doing digital collages, and the idea of using 1 image in several different collages never occurred to me! I think to begin, I might just do several of my own DIFFERENT collages, just to see how it feels, because that is what my muse is shouting at me right now!

Not only all three showcase the style of each artist individually, but the three work together as a series.

a real challenge, which one did you enjoy to make and is close to your own style?

Very well done Margaret...your starting to do "me" better than I do myself....I just might have to retire soon ;)
as for your hommages to Ken and Kanchan... I would never have known it wasn't their own work... kudos!

I was fascinated by how you are clearly telling a story in your triptych-type pieces.

Aha.  A huge challenge is going to be to try "catch" your style!

It's been a long time since you did these! July of 2011 !
I like how you've incorporated the format and style of each piece.
It's very admirable that you are continually challenging and for pushing at your own "safe" zone. 

Thank you for choosing my work as a starting point for one of your inventive challenges!
