In the summer I build things. I have some new chickens now as foxes killed all of my others. They are Blue Pekins and Gold Silkies. I had to relocate them down the garden, which meant rebuilding everything but the arc. I also have a little white rabbit who has the markings of a siamese cat. Her name is Woo.

Hello all

We had some lovely manips for challenge 4 and here are one from each of you

For Manipulation Challenge 5 we are going to try making tributes to the works of Eva Kmento - :iconxantipa2:  who as you all know passed away a couple of months ago.  Here are just a few from her wonderful gallery. 

Ab13 Game 40 by Xantipa2  MB2015-558 by Xantipa2 AB2015-178 ... 90 by Xantipa2 

You can take your inspiration from any of her works.  Use your own pieces as a base or look for free stock images (their are loads on D.A.)


Rule No.1 - A fractal program or plug-in must be used as a big part of the image
Rule No.2 - 6 Submissions max.
Rule No.3 - Please mention the group, Challenge and give credit to the artist in your details.

Time limit - 3-4 weeks.  Have fun :)
For our 3rd Manipulation Challenge I thought you might like to work with the tutorials of a master manipulator :iconrockgem:  Gem has produced several tutorials on this subject and you can use any or all of them.
I picked this one Fractal Manipulation Tutorial for Photoshop -Bunny by rockgem because it has a minimum of shapes and eyes can of course be made as intricately as you like in UF. MB3D Photoshop, PSP etc.  But, as stated above you can use any of her tutorials though the fractal content must be your own.  The background can be a fractal scene or a free graphic but please give credit to the creator in your details if it isn't your own.  You may also, of course, use your own shapes


Rule No.1 - A fractal program or plug-in must be used as a big part of the image
Rule No.2 - 6 Submissions max.
Rule No.3 - Please mention the group, Challenge and give credit to the artist in your details.

Notes:  To read earlier discussions and see comments please click this link:….  Their seems to be some confusion with this challenge.  It is a simple cut and paste, masking or selection tool excersize using only 3 shapes.  You do not need to be an Apo user to participate.  You can use any finished fractal work.  You do need to have Paint Shop pro, Corel Photopaint, Photoshop or Gimp or any other free software that will enable you to isolate areas of your fractal.  I would suggest you choose a fractal piece with an overall fairly small pattern design.

Challenge 2

I know a few of you loved the colour of the flowers chosen  Blue flower Blue sky by gigi50 from :icongigi50:'s  extensive gallery.  Here I have chosen one from each of you.   Enjoy!
