Quality photographs altered with layers of textures to create a grunge effect.

*Sometimes it’s good to remind ourselves what is GRUNGE and what is just TEXTURE.
GRUNGE is always TEXTURE, but TEXTURE is not always GRUNGE.
Our definition is: The grunge movement in design combines LAYERS OF RIPS, TEARS, DECAY, SMEARS AND SCRATCHES to form a dark and gritty result.
Anything that doesn’t do that is merely TEXTURE and doesn’t qualify in this group.
I hope this is helpful!!

These outstanding images are my choice for today’s features.
Congratulations and keep the true GRUNGY work coming :o)

FYI: All images are chosen for their image quality…not by Artist names. Artists may receive more than one feature at a time, if their image meets the theme & judging requirements.

Have a wonderful and creative weekend.
Kira :o)*
