affinity photo Some amusing nonsense
Kasper-V posted a topic in Share your workWhat is this life if, full of care, we have no time to stand and stare? Or make silly composite pictures from pure whimsy? I realise in the last couple of weeks I've been doing just that, and so why not share 'em with you folks! I read that Roald Dahl's children's books are being made more 'suitable' for today's children; mention of reading Rudyard Kipling has been changed to Jane Austen. Cue old joke made new: A long time ago on BBC TV, the late Michael Bentine had a sketch with a mad scientist who'd invented the next step up from painting by numbers: spray-on classic paintings. To demonstrate, Hals' Laughing Cavalier and da Vinci's Mona Lisa . . . -- or you can spray them both at the same time to get The Laughing Lisa! Serendipity! In the course of looking for something completely different (pace Mothy Python) I learned that Geiger is German for violinist; Stehgeiger is German for cafe violinist ('standing fiddler); and Geigerteller is German for Geiger counter. So there must e a German word for . . . And finally Esther (British in-joke):
affinity photo Predator/prey swap
Kasper-V posted a topic in Share your workMore whimsical nonsense. I saw a meme recently asking what if prey animals were predators and vice-versa. Naturally, I thought 'I can do better than that', and perhaps I have. (I haven't got the original to show you, so you'll have to take my word for it.) In case you can't recognise them, this is a rabbit and a wolf, but I've switched the eyes and the teeth. I think the results are a little disturbing . . . Both source images are from Pixabay. The rabbit is by David Mark, the wolf by WikiImages.
affinity photo More whimsical nonsense
Kasper-V posted a topic in Share your workI realise I haven't posted anything here for some time, so here's something I made to amuse my musical friends on Facebook (with some success). The concept is taken from a Will Heath Robinson drawing I saw in an exhibition not long ago. I could have bought the original (if I had lots of money) but I decided to steal emulate the Master's idea instead. The original image, on the left, I found on the internet; it's not very big, and so my piece isn't either.
Yes, I did waste ages looking for the "toggle button" mentioned in the help files. This has to be the most 'unique' toggle button ever to grace a UI

affinity photo Humorous composite photos with Affinity Photo
Kasper-V posted a topic in Share your workThe devil finds work for idle hands, they say. I'm not sure if this counts as keeping out of trouble or the devil's work, but I've been amusing myself searching for self-portraits with a window and ... 'improving' them. (All the additional images I found with Google.) See what you think ! Portrait of Bartolomeo Bonghi. But if you will call yourself Bart Bongy, you're asking for it, aren't you? "No, YOU tell him he's in my light!" Marie-Denise Villers 1774 – 1821, self portrait with friend. Saint Luke reading the government's latest social distancing guidelines to the Virgin and infant Jesus. Rogier van der Weyden, 16th century self-portrait (He's the one on the right). Raphael meets Magritte ... Animated GIF made with JASC Animation Studio This is a self-portrait by 19th century Dutch artist Louis Meijer, but I've been very cheeky and replaced his painting with some artwork of my own. I used the Pen tool to select the canvas; if you switch to the Selection brush you can use Refine to, well, refine the selection -- it will do much of the work for you, so you don't have to work so hard with the Pen. I matched the drawing to the mask with the Perspective tool.
marcdraco posted a topic in Share your workThis is a simple composite shot of an ant, bee, traffic cone and a few other elements (all public domain) with an extended areas to the top (to accommodate the cone) and right to accommodate the caption about the ant complaining the bee is drunk and won't quit singing. It's not going to win any prizes but it's for a blog entry.
affinity photo When The Camera's Switched Off
AffinityJules posted a topic in Share your workDon't believe everything that Hollywood tells you. I have it from good authority that these two guys get on like a house on fire; the first chance they get, out comes the piano and before you know it - it's an all out rendition of "Nessun Dorma." And if you thought the Italian language was difficult to understand. . .just you wait till you hear this mother sing. Put that in your dreadlocks and smoke it!
affinity photo Meanwhile. . .back on the Nostromo
AffinityJules posted a topic in Share your workI don't know. . .the things I do to keep myself amused. I actually lost count of the number of layers I had going on this one, they just grew exponentially until I didn't know what to do anymore! Arghhh!! The layers, the layers! Still, gotta laugh haven't you?
affinity photo When You've Gotta Go!
AffinityJules posted a topic in Share your workDid I laugh or what. Yes. . .I giggled all the way through this.
affinity photo A Bit Of Humour
AffinityJules posted a topic in Share your workI wish that I was better at doing shadows! But it seems no matter what I do, I can never get it quite right. One day. . .maybe?
multi Wimoweh ... yes, it's another lion video!
Kasper-V posted a topic in Share your workFor those of you who've been waiting, here is the promised video at last. Warning: not so much talking in this one (but plenty of snoring); and you'll have to put up with me singing (I didn't think it was a good idea to use a commercial version of the song -- you may disagree!) AP for the image manipulations, and AD for the captions, and opening graphics. https://youtu.be/OkSuo-Ps6qo
Chatsworth House, Derbyshire, England. Two enormous carved lions, one sleeping, and one that looks as if you've just woken him up. I used Mesh Warp in AF to make all the different mouth shapes for speech and blinking eyes. The speech was poked and prodded in Audacity and GoldWave (it's a little creaky and a little sibilant -- but hey, who know what lion speech really sounds like?) I used Anime Studio (horrible software, but all I've got) to sync the mouth to the speech. Here's a small copy of the original: And here's the finished product: https://youtu.be/8N4AjXh_GHY
