in letsmakeacollage •  8 months ago  (edited)


Greetings Steemians!

Welcome to Round #6 of the community contest Let's make a collage!

After I had to suspend the contest last week due to some real-life obligations I'm happy to announce that this week's round comes with double the SBD prices! So if you've been hesitant to participate so far, now really is the time to join the fun!

❗️Important rule change: Participation in this contest now requires you to post your artwork under the #letsmakeacollage tag. Link your submission as a comment to this post.

So let's kick off the next challenge:

What do you see in this photography that is not yet there? A shipwrecked spacecraft? A squad of Yetis on the prowl? The Snow Queen's Palace?

(click here for a HighRes version)

Let your creativity run wild and transform the image into whatever you want to see. Your imagination is the only limit (and the tools that you can command).

Awesome contest :) thanks for the input and inspiration! I like the pic. Well done! Had fun editing this on my mobile haha



I don't know if I like the dog or the squirrel better--but they're all beautiful, and yes they do exist in peace :)

Thihi I like both of them and the penguins are super cute as well :)
Thanks for your comment @agmoore!


How daring! I too would take a picture of the giant dolphins. You should have glued wings onto them :-D

... Oh ... wait! They already got them!

Ok, I'm ready. I've been practicing my GIFs, just because of your challenge. So here I go. Not perfect yet, but making progress, I hope :) Thanks for the creative exercise.

LOL! What is it? A spaceship set on fire by earthlings defense?

I'm so glad you could make it out! My son said he wasn't sure :)) I think the key to making your own GIF is the same as baking a cake--the ingredients (pictures you use to make the GIF) have to be good for the outcome to be good. I do bake a good cake....GIF not so much :))

HaHa! Happy that I recognized the motive. It's so funny!
This gif making and photo editing is really time consuming. But some time is there to be wasted. :)

After I tried and abandoned numerous online image editing programs, this is my result. Unfortunately none of the programs wanted to insert a text into my speech bubble. And despite "promises" that I could use a pen, the pen remained without any possibility to use it, simply without effect :(


is the kiss of this gorilla or Neanderthal creature.

Great idea of yours!


Thanks to @agmoore who gave me another tipp for editing, here ist the final version:)

Welcome to the fun! I love the mustache--or is it eyebrows? A very, very interesting result. I'm still playing with GIF. Just learned how to make something move as though it's underwater. Boy, do I know how to waste time. So glad to see you letting your imagination play.

:) Couldn't use the pen in the program. So I had to seek alternatives and pasted some ready images on the picture. The mustache represents the gorillas eyebrow. Don't you find that the creature sharpened it's lips to a kiss? LOL

Do you have GIMP?
I find that I can play with objects in Paint3D, readjust afterwards in Paint, and then go to GIMP for weird effects. I just love GIMP.
All of these are free.

I am so happy you decided to try these. Can't believe what you did with those tools. Now I see what you saw in your mind. Wunderbar!

Thank you. Never heard of it. Appreciate your tipps.
edit: Altered completely that thing! LOL. what fun!

Yes, but it was not a kiss I think many would welcome :))

Wow... Nice to see all these entries! Here are my penguins :D
