Title: 3 Illusion of Movement Art Challenge
Post by: nolan on October 02, 2019, 10:45:10 PM
Illusion of Movement Challenge


This is the third of the art challenges.
If you would like to follow the challenges in order (you don't have to), then click HERE  (https://paintbasket.com/using-patterns-in-art/)to go to the first challenge.

Follow this challenge tutorial HERE  (https://paintbasket.com/illusion-of-movement-in-art/)to learn all about creating the illusion of movement in your artworks.

Your challenge is to use two of the illusion methods explained in the tutorial to create an artwork which makes the viewer feel like the focal point of the artwork is moving.

Bonus points if you come up with something creative and outside the box for the focal point.

Then return here to post your challenge entry.

All challenges are subject to the CHALLENGE RULES (https://paintbasket.com/members/index.php?topic=15404.0).

Good luck and have fun

Hi Bonsaiman,
What are you trying to do?

I see you entry.

You do not need to 'quote' to reply... Just hit 'reply' and write what you like.  I see you figured out how to use the [smg id=nnnnnn] feature.  It is the most challenging  :whistle: the rest is easy.

I see two movements here. Her hair is clearly moving. It could be from wind, but to me it looks like she is dancing, so implies a second movement - her body. (her mouth is open so she may even be singing)

Fabulous entries so far,

Here is my entry in the challenge.

You can see that the plane is landing as it’s wheels are down and the perspective of the lights also adds to the illusion....I think :2funny: :2funny: It’s obviously not taking off.
This is in Watercolour on 300lb cold pressed paper.

Title: Re: Illusion of Movement Art Challenge

Oh Yay  :) Love your painting Terri - so clever  :clap: and Bill love your ships painting, & the effect of the star movement is really cool  :clap:

Thanks all for your lovely comments, I was wanting to draw 1 of those little birds that always chase the eagles, but ran out of steam - always my imagination far exceeds my capabilities  :2funny:
The little rabbit was meant to be a bilby, but for the life of me I couldn't get his Left ear to behave, so maybe I'll name him a Bilbit.  :) BTW he made his escape safely & the snake would've been safe if I had've put the little pestering bird in to distract the eagle!
Cheers Tracey

My submission of the Illusion of Movement challenge.


I call this What happened.


My movements I feel is an action pose as he is about to bite or make noises and the second one is perspective as he is moving forward (in my mind) Also some movements in the clouds.


The submission is a bit out of the box I think and also not perfect.


My reason for naming it What happened - 1. what led the horse to this action? 2. My son just said what happened when he saw this. (Not my best I know, been struggling to get back into art)

Well, I don‘t know about „The Illusion of Movement“ but there was a lot of movement -wanted and  :heeha: unwanted - doing this painting in water colours.
So this is my choice for the challenge.

 :gl: Everyone  There are many really good entries.

Looks Good Cathy  :painting: I'm in the 1st stages of the same subject. I (Unwisely?) chose to have her facing me.

Thanks, Bill.
I know what you mean about having her facing you, too, - see my post in the wc encourager section in the next few days.

Lovely contribution Riyal :clap:


Thank you for your kind and encouraging comments Riya!In fact everyone did so well in this challenge!
If not for Nolan, and ever encouraging PB family...I don’t think I would have had courage to create my own artwork!

Post by: Riya on November 16, 2019, 09:46:04 PM
 :thankyou: Zayn, for the nice comment.

Yes, Nolan made so many of us turn to love creating and showing our art. He and Dennis do make us feel like real artists, capable to do so much more then we thought we would be able to. Their classes are just great and they help you with so many things, but most of all they make you feel worth showing what you created, even when it is just a simple lesson like drawing a bal. And I love  :smitten: it how they test us, :coffee: push us further :sweat: on the step of being artists :painting: ...your gorgeous piece of art shows it too well.

I think most of us wouldn't be any further then trying to draw a simple ball looking like a bal. :2funny: Nolan and Dennis just know what we are able to :smart: ...better then we do and I like that a lot :nosey: .

Being ill and not into art did give me the feeling of being on hold or worse, going back to where I was years ago when I started here at first in 2012. But after doing these first three little sketches I am surprised that it didn't took long to make a decent drawing, and my favourite is Fever,  :smitten:

Thank you Riya!You said all I wanted to say so aptly.
Yes they let us grow at our own pace pushing our boundaries little further ,gently,each time!
 Dennis And Nolan :flowers:

Hi Riya, although we haven't met before ( I'm new to PB) I just wanted to say that I am in awe of your art work. I feel very blessed that I fell onto PB & it's been wonderful journey learning to draw, but also seeing so many inspiring artists work, stories, battles here.
Also I take heart in all that you have said (In your converation with Zayn... sorry to but in) and all you have aptly said.  :thankyou:
Title: Re: 3 Illusion of Movement Art Challenge
Post by: Riya on November 17, 2019, 07:52:43 AM
 :thankyou: So very much Trace, for your very kind comment.  :bigwelcome: to this wonderful community, better late then never said :) .And never dont mind to but in :) , that's just where these posts are for. When we didn't want to interact with other artists, we would use PM's,  :) . So never hold back when something makes you want to reply, even when that person has a conversation with someone else.

PB and this whole big family kept me from going insain or getting depressed again. And I am so happy to be back ..again, and see all my old friens again and meet new inspiring artists, like you.
BTW I absolutely love the Daily Drawings from the wales you have made, they are awesome.Drawing is my old time favourite, always done and it saved me several times from going mad. And aldo teachers saw my ability to draw, they tested me by giving me more difficult tasks then others, I always had doubt in my skills.
When I was a teen my mentor thought I should join Art Academy, but I was so scared and had so little selfconfidence...I ripped all the drawings I had made in pieces, so I had nothing to show at the entrance examination for a place in one of the classes. Stupid ofcourse, but I didn't felt sorry for doing so right there and then. And here I just picked up my favourite again, drawing...till today the most loved thing I like to do. Especially hatching and crosshatching is something I absolutely LOVE!!!
Well, I have to make some breakfast, allready up since 6 am and it is now almost 9,  :) .Have a wonderful Sunday Trace, and enjoy some art. :1hug:

 :thankyou: Nolan, I just played with the glitter gelpens thinking about what I could draw for this challenge,  :) Didn't need to think too long :2funny: .  Never thought about dancing, but yeah, it looks like Balroom Dancers swirling around, or those Derwish Dancers.
