Hi

With the Perseverance Rover succesfully landing on Mars and setting off in search of life signs, I thought we might have our own bit of Mars based fun. So to that end, I've created my version of a Mars like surface. Can you now show us what life we might find there?

 

The “rules”:

* Anything goes, as long as it meets the forum rules on decency, copyright etc

* Anyone, and everyone, is welcome to have a go, whether you are a complete beginner or a Photoshop expert.

* There are no prizes apart from the chance to practice, show off, or bring a bit of humour and fun. Don't be shy, join in and have a go!

 

To download the image below at 3842 x 1840 pixels, with an embedded ICC colour profile (sRGB), hover over the image and click on the circle with the arrows at the top right. Then, when the image opens in its own window, right click and choose “Save Image As/Save Target As” (or similar depending on your browser).

Have fun.

Indeed, Dave; but has that ever stopped the go(ld) getters, (be they fools or no fools)?

Thanks for that Rafael.  That's a week of nightmares to look forward to.  At least F.Quill's little green men are playfully amusing each other doing shadow puppets — although that is a terrible depiction of a rabbit top left — and not terrorising us poor humans.

 

We defeated the HG Wells Tripod monstors with the comon cold, so if those giant spiders feel like invading Earth, COVID will make short work of them.  Thanks China.  You might just have saved humanity after all.

Hi Trevor!  All weekend,... wondering what is the "terrible depiction of a rabbit"...?  That was a "peace sign"... from another era.  The front green man is "hands up - don't shoot", centre-right is "jazz hands", far-right is "ET - Call Home", far-left is "A-ok" and the first,  left of centre is supposed to be the peace sign, but now that I see it, again - it is a terrible rabbit!  Maybe I will get it right next time the martian comes for a photo-shoot! BTW - Don't use a green screen with them!  ha-ha!

Nice one Rafael.

Trevor, we all know from watching old episodes of Star Trek, that all aliens speak English so we'll have no trouble talking to Rafael's creatures. 🙂

Images sent back from the Perseverance Rover prove once and for all that there is Life on Mars.

In other words, much like some of the humans who live on the Planet Earth, Graham? 😮

Thanks for you comment on the starter image Jane. It was made using a combination of World Creator, Blender and Adobe Substance.

Thank-you for doing this!  It is a fun break that I look forward to, now.  I love seeing what everyone can do.   Some crazy skills and cute techniques from the participants.
