New Challenge

So, you all know that I have a student teacher and she has taken over my classes, so I have been working on cleaning up things in my room etc.  This week was the week of letters of recommendation, fun fun!  Also, I ran across a new Challenge on Flickr, the Marcus Ranum Challenge.  You use an image picked from stock photos from Marcus Ranum and create something great.  So of course I decided to do this, I had to create a deviantart account to download photos which is fine, I like the website, I get tons of brushes and ideas from it.   Here is my link http://artteach13.deviantart.com/#.   I have posted the challenge photos in my classroom.  I think it is important for your students to know that you are still doing art, that you aren't just an art teacher!  I also think it is important to have the students see that you are also trying to grow as an artist!
So for my first challenge I decided to use my Urban Color in my MCP Details Actions.  Than, I used textures from Shadowhouse Creations and a variety of brushes on layer masks to create my image.  I didn't want to do a photo montage so I decided to go this route.  Enjoy and thank to Marcus Ranum for allowing people to use his stock photos.
