Someone's Lurking...

Untitled - © W. Beydoun, 2007

This is Wissam's contribution to the Door project, and here are his steps:

  1. Step one: clean the picture of the bicycles by cloning, smudging
    and copy, paste.
  2. Step two: insert a drawing. Work on it a bit
  3. Step three: lightning effects for a dramatic look.
  4. Lens correction to give the picture a different perspective

I hope I followed the rules... (I am not good at this)"

Hmm, I beg to differ..

Wow - I like that one. It is strange, I wanted to do it as a collage with a woman's face in the foreground for the bicyclettes d'antan thingie - but drawing it yourself is just so much better
Lovely image, very dark and evocative.

I continue to be amazed at the different ways this very photo can be interpreted. I like the way you used the light to dramatize the look you wanted, and the drawing is perfect for this look. Wonderful!

This is very interesting ... people really know how to take an image and run ... I think I am too constrained by internal consistency.

Who is Wissam Beydoun? Does he have his own website too. He seems to be very good. Such talented people we are seeing. I am so impressed and can't wait to unlock the mysteries of Paint Shop Pro, oh you holy people. I bow before thee.

Alexiev is good looking, but he writes in Spanish, which I don't speak. A real shame, he does some interesting things. Did you notice how his eyes move on the picture on his profile? Or am I going mad?

Hi Rima, thank you for your comment.
I like your creativity!

Irene: Please don't make me go there again!

I went over all the family-tree-confusing-connections in the Texanisms post comment section, to explain who's who and who does what, and Wissam is in there. He doesn't have a blog (yet!) but his work in in my online gallery.

And here's my shameless plug: please go check my online gallery at:

I have been working on a whole slew of changes and new updates for it, but haven't finisned all the details. Hope I'll get it done in the next few weeks.

Debi said...

LOL, Irene. The eye thing freaked me out too.

Irene, check my blog. I've got the answers clarified.
