There were some fantastic entries in last week's subway challenge. This week we have something completely different.
Those who have been taking part in the challenges for a while will know that sometimes we start with a scene and sometimes with an object. This week it is the latter and we have a wheel and tyre, or actually three views of a wheel and tyre just to give you some choice in the angles.
What will you do with this object? Will you put the wheel(s) on a suitable vehicle or will you use it to make something else entirely?

I'm told I get carried away with things. Personally, I don't see it. Anyway, the wheels ARE in there (honestly, they are!!). Hope you enjoy, and thanks again for doing this Dave.
It made me laugh Glenn 🙂
Thanks Dave. Glad to hear that. I had a lot of fun with it. Sure do appreciate the work you go to on these projects.
They'll go nicely with my coffee, Jacob. I hope they taste better than tyre treads though 🙂
They do, Dave, but the one in the middle may have a certain irony touch, as I believe you remember.
If I remember correctly that pattern was on top of an old railway line.
Exactly, Dave, the one in Teesside (69, hence the maltreatment of the boat song), on the head of the rail (to the right).
it took me a min to spot what was odd about his outfit
That's hilarious! I love it!
It wasn't meant to be, but it has turned out to be disturbing. Something to do with the tongue and the little poker dot eyes — which were also accidental. It's made him look like a hideous monster.
This is what the source image looked like: Still a bit unsettling, but the little dots for eyes take it up a level. I wonder how much the syrup (and fig) cost him?
Brilliant Trevor - love it!
It ocurred to me that I missed an obvious trick with Elton. It was literally five minutes to make the diamonds flash, but another ten minutes to animate the tongue. I imagine it would be much easier with Animate but I have never used it.
It's perfect, Trevor, and I love it! 💙
Stimmt, klasse Technik, aber Du machst mir mein Idol kaputt! ;-)))
I've eaten the apples, unwound the bowl, and put the chain back on the bicycle.
Great job with the chain Jane. Did you mask it or create a new chain?
Thanks, Dave! I drew the shapes in Illustrator, created a pattern brush, drew paths with the Pen tool, applied the brush, then brought it back to Photoshop and masked out the ends. The writing was done in Photoshop.
An Illustrator brush lesson. Yet another benefit of Something for the Weekend 🙂
Wow Jane, BONUS! You just helped me out a whole lot with this (I'm in the process of learning Illustrator - so far I have found the "on" button 😜!). Thanks a bunch for this.
HEY, can I have your phone nu... uhh ok, never mind (I heard that... 😒) <LOL>. Seriously though, appreciate you showing this.
A little older than Jane-e's:
he looks bad to the bone 😉
The baddest penny-farthing in the world 🙂
