SoJie 13 Workshop
Artists are now taking agreements.
Translating artists should post the digitally signed agreements here, modifying them so that
This is NOT, repeat NOT the exhibition space. It’s the WORKSPACE.
Digital artist provide pre-approved basis works for potential translation to traditional, digital, and photographic mediums, under an agreement that defines terms, copyright, and credits. Finished translations qualify both the translated work and the translation for Solo’s 13th Juried Invitational Exhibition, in September. Translated work happens in an open workshop atmosphere where works in progress are shared before the artwork progresses to the next stage.
We are looking for exceptional Fractals, 3D work, Digital Painting, Photo-manipulation (no stock), Abstracts, Digital Collage, and Tra-digital works. See the rules. It cannot have been nominated to a SoJie before; as that is a standing SoJie rule.
Rules for Originating Digital Artists posting "BASIS WORKS (i.e., works to be translated)
Use the red Edit button on the top right of any Solo page and click the link that says “My Works”.
4) This Special Easy Button version MUST be used to post.
8) You may make only ONE AGREEMENT for TRANSLATION PER the following 3 official SoJie Categories, as defined below: “Traditional Art”, “Photographic Art”, “Digital Art”.
10) For the work to be in the exhibition in September, your work must have been successfully translated at least ONCE, by a solo member in the workshop. “Successful translation” means simply that the translation must qualify for the exhibition. If the translating artists does not post works in progress, as outlined, for example, their work would not qualify for the exhibition. As long as one qualifying translation is made of your work, in any of the 3 official SoJie Categories, your work is also qualified.
11) You MUST WATCH the topic, so that you can see contact from artists, here.
There is no guarantee that your post to the workshop will be one of the works accepted for the workshop.
Remember, Digital Artists may also translate ONE work, initially (whether your work is in the ultimate workshop catalog, or not). Subsequent requests must be approved.

Wow! The workshop opened! Good luck to all of us! Looking forward for new collaborations and creations!
I chose this image, because I think that it can be interpreted in many ways.

This is an original Cinema 4D render. (CINEMA 4D is a commercial 3-D graphics application). Main figure is DAZ V4 which I morphed and texturized within Cinema 4D; rest of elements were created by using some other free C4D plugins such as Ivy Grower and Reeper X.

Inspired by Jonathan Livingston Seagull – wikipedia
I’ve chosen to enter this image because the simplicity of the image, the subject matter, and the story line, should make it equally translatable for all three mediums while wide open for interpretations. This image is one of the Jonathan series I continue to work on. I am hoping to see the three “translations” taking inspiration from different points of the story.
Please scroll down to the bottom of the comment page to see the other renditions.

I chose this image to be translated by traditional media, drawing, pastels, any paint medium. It is a representation of my very expressive imagination as a child, how I could turn any object or place into a grand adventure, to solve the mystery, defeat the villain, rescue the maiden, or die gloriously trying. Or all of the above. A very young devotee of romanticism, even though I would not have known those words at the time.

I chose this piece to be translated in any art form as I believe it would be challenging. It is an expression of another world, deep in the ocean depths, where few men ever travel. Wreckage litters the bottom showing the inaccessibility to the world above. It would be interesting to see how the ocean depths can be perceived by others. :) This is my best Bryce piece to date. One thing I love about it is the complexity of the models and different angles of the subject matter. It would be an honor to have this piece translated.

I originally was going to pick one of my Bryce pieces for this opportunity but realized that I think Wild Blossom would be more interesting to see translated. I would love to see it translated in either traditional, photographic or digital medium. Wild Blossom was created in Apophysis 7x, a fractal program. It’s a raw fractal meaning there was no post processing of the work. Created solely in the fractal software.

I chose this, one of my most favorite pieces, because it is composed primarily of individual fractals that I created in Apophysis (fractal software) and then put the individual fractals together as a collage in Photoshop. The only things in this that aren’t fractals are the sky, the clouds, the frame and the grass. I had a wonderful time putting it together and it remains one of my most commented and most favorited fractal manipulations/collages. I would love to see this done as a traditional work or as an interpretation by another digital artist. I don’t know if it would translate well as a photograph, but I would love to see someone try.

I chose this because perhaps it moves one to think about their own mortality or worth. The words that go with it might make one want to explore their feelings; aging parents or friends or even their own aging process. Layers upon layers of manipulated images; Digital ART: All my own images.

Created in Fractal Science Kit as an abstract fractal based on equation Convergent Map 1 with complex inversion transforms Convex, Ztrans11, Ztrans5, Ztrans4, CpxF17 and Hacoversh as a Julia image. Best if viewed larger.
Lovingly dedicated to a wonderful dog that was a childhood pet of a friend of mine, but unfortunately died before our paths crossed. The real Snowball was an all-white Labrador Retriever with soulful eyes and a wonderful disposition. I hope this abstract fractal that just happened to look a bit like Snowball will be a comfort and pleasant reminder of the truly unconditional love that only a good dog can give.
My top-selling fractal image to date, this abstract image / accidental caricature made in a software package that nobody else on RedBubble uses seems to convey to many viewers a very special canine quality that realistic paintings and photographs don’t really capture. I therefore feel that if an artist specializing in graphic novel art could work with the elements of this image, the results could be really special, both for the artists, and especially for the owners of the original Snowball, and dog-lovers everywhere. Looking forward to the translation process with the right artist who truly “gets” what this image is saying.

While exploring the tunnels that weave through this planet we came upon this cavern and were awestruck!! We entered what appeared to be the interior of a giant Cathedral. We still have yet to find any living beings, but their artifacts surround us.

The sun is rising in the forest and all of the creatures that like to rise before dawn, start to magically appear in the morning light. The mist starts to rise and the birds call to one another. It is all so beautiful and breath taking to behold. We are constant witnesses of the glory of creation and its magical mysteries, one of our true gifts as the lucky beings that inhabit planet earth.

I chose this work as it was the start of my journey into digital art – 2010. This work has been shown at Gallery Burlesque @ Tone in Sydney, Australia CBD and travelled with the MA Gallery to Design Festa, Harajuku, Tokyo Japan. It was one of my first art sales, selling to Harajuku girls and then was subsequently purchased on Red Bubble.
It was created in photoshop using my own brushes and a digitally drawn girl. It is a self portrait of me and my dream of Brenna, my spirit raven. A dream I had almost 16 years ago.
I would LOVE to see it re-done by another artist. I love collaborations and I am in the process of a joint Red Bubble exhibition to be held at the Gaffa Gallery in Sydney CBD in Spetember 2011.
There is attached music to this work, which may provide further inspiration.

One of my earlier digital manipulations, based on photos I took in the Greek islands. Someone commented that it is “almost Escher like”. The not-quite-real stair motif helps give this impression. The elements of childplay and dreamlike architecture could make for interesting translations.

I chose this image because it dates back to my purest abstract fractal art, before I was influenced by other fractal artists. I was still experimenting with doing selfportraits and this has always been my favorite.

This image was created using the software packages Poser and Vue. (Image size 2000×1513px). It explores the effects of reflection on perceived reality. There was only one person and one bush in the scene, the rest are reflections of those and reflections of reflections…So is she right to feel as though she is in a siege…Are the emotions of the person the same after reflections…

When creating this fractal in Apophysis 7x I was delighted to see a field of “pine trees” come to life. Although the field of plain trees looked good to me, I could not resist decorating them with twinkling lights. My decision to enter this fractal is based upon the fun I experienced creating it and my love of Christmas. My hope is that this piece imparts a spirit of joy, happiness, and generosity to those who see it.
