In a hurry to deliver giant sausages


Detail about pilot (I let you trying to guess who is it :sweat_smile:)

Here’s the original pictures used to create it:

Used a lot of layers, transparency mask, filter mask, transform mask, clone layers.
The v) Clone tool to cleanup some details on plane.
Vector tools to create logo on the plane.

And I used G’mic filters and few strokes with b) basic-5 size and f) Bristles-3 Large Smooth for the final rendering style

It was funny, I think I didn’t made photobashing since 20 years now :sweat_smile:
(back in time, internet was not what we currently have and I had to buy some magazines just to scan interesting pages and get some pictures)



This was a colaberation with @Bleke So I can’t take all the credit. Hope thats allowed.


I certainly don’t mind. :slight_smile:

But I do think that you should try it yourself, if only just to get the exercise. Find some other mountain and forest pictures and try to fit them on top of the original image you made.

And you get to take all the glory for yourself if you win. :wink:

here is one I did some time ago but I thought it was more about using the photos in a painting… All good. I loved playing with photos I took.


Nice! And that fly had better hurry. :slight_smile:

I think I’m done with mine.

I was a little apprehensive about getting painting and photos to gel, but it was pretty clear from the start that setting the scene with a few choice photos really helped.

I saved some process steps:

I made quite a few composition sketches. Something about this was just hard to nail.

As you can see, I wasn’t quite sure what the monster should look like :smiley:


I wanna try out :smiley: - it’s called fire in the paper ship - i never tried "photobashing” so sorry if i got it wong :sweat_smile:

'and fire

and ship


Go go go!

Very much not finished, but it’s something at least.

Mishmash of photos, 3D render and painting.


Title: Hurry to the shelter!

Nice to meet you. Something went wrong, so I re-uploaded it.
This is my first photobash.
I’m not sure if this is correct.

I made this picture using a photo I took.
This cat is my cat who went to heaven three years ago.
I also used the recording function of krita5 beta2 while I was drawing. It’s fun!!

The contest is over we will have votes now.

Let the voting begin!! :fire::fire::fire:

The winner will choose the topic for next contest


Congrats everyone. Congrats @hulmanen and @KIO. I would ask @hulmanen to suggest a new topic or if you are okay we can ask @KIO too since you have chosen the topic for this contest.


Thanks for the votes! I know the technique was probably not that familiar to many, I hope trying it out was fruitful. For myself, I haven’t really been doing that much photobashing, if any at all, and will definitely be making more use of it going forward.

@raghukamath I was going to suggest someone else pick the topic! So if @KIO feels up to it, I’d be happy to pass the task on!


The photobash was a great experience for me. I always find it difficult and time-consuming to draw, but I found photobash to be a very good way to finish the composition quickly.

I’m very happy to have been given the task of coming up with next month’s topic, but since @hulmanen is the reigning winner, even though he is this month’s proposer, would you like to split the task of coming up with the topic and the challenge between the two of us?

Of course, it’s up to you to decide which one you want to consider.

I’m using the DeepL translation, so I apologize if the translation is somewhat strange.

@KIO I’m happy to leave it all to you! BTW I don’t think there has to be a special challenge, it’s just what we’ve been doing so far.
