The theme for this month:

ERASE ONLY


Inspiration image by Michelangelo

I'm not sure how this theme will go, but here's the idea: you can start with any picture you wish (art, photo, pattern, flat color, etc), and then create your "erase only" theme image by attacking the picture using only erase (and with only the single erase color (which can be transparency, if you think you can use that)). Erasing can use any brush.

What creative and artistic possibilities are available? I have no idea. But it might be interesting to try the creative process from another direction.

Or it might not; only time will tell.

The inspiration image above -- Michelangelo's David -- is a marble statue, created by removing rather than adding.

--

New and old accepted, 2D and 3D, digital and not, finished or sketched. Feel free to cross-post images into other relevant threads, and to post older images that fit the theme. The more images the better.

I gotta admit that this was really difficult, I made several tries during the week.
I think in my case it has to do with that I usually build my pictures from bright background and then build darker into the foreground, with erasing only I had to think backwards.
Good practise this, bad picture from me here though lol. Smile

I worked on top of a texture and then with the eraser set to white.

Tough. I cheated by using the history brush to bring back some of the shapes. I ended up with some kind of a drawing then a rendering. Haa. Try try again if i can find time. Razz

Raytoh, cool. Is it inverted thinking for you too when erasing?
