Tonight's submission is from Marta, aka @alabamawonder, let's hear about her process

I want to thank Mark for this opportunity. Is the first time in Mobileartistry and I feel very flattered.

Normally I love edit emotions in the photos. depends on my mood. I seek a photo that moves me inside.
I like add photos with a sensual tone. and I'm imagining a story while I 'm editing.

In this pic I speak of the wounds we all have. not shown when we are on ​​the street but that always accompany us . are there. and is in the privacy of our loneliness or our home where we can watch them "in live". and some wounds are still open .
I mean that in the photo.

First I use PicsArt.
I put photo in black and white with high contrast .clear the floor with a brush to draw and put wall color. (White) .cut and pasted the gaping wound in the back. .then I played with vintage filters PicsArt and snapseed . .painted the wound inside to give depth. . I put the sharpen filter on the left side of the photo. to enhance the detail ( white spots filter.
. and also put it around the wound. .on the right side put blur filter to lose detail ( blur ) . .finally, to give better finish, I painted with the brush PicsArt skin ( with different shades of green) .and around the wound and eyes with black color. (I like to make edits with contrast.) .I lowered the tone with the instagram_editor and "That was the final picture."

Tonight's submission is from Wayman, aka @wstairs, let's hear about his process.

First off thanks to MobileArtistry and Will for asking if I would like to be featured, I am very honored to be featured for the second time on this wonderful feed.
It is hard to do a complete step-by-step of my edits, because I will do a little here and there, pick it up when I can and work on it some more, but because I made this one especially for MobileArtistry, I tried my best to remember my steps.

I shoot all my images with my native iPhone 5c camera. Anything I find interesting or I think I might be able to use later. I have a folder full of my own stock images that I can pull up at any given time. This image started from a picture that I took while traveling back home from our yearly family camping trip. I loved the way the mountains looked so smooth and serene. From there I uploaded the landscape into my favorite app, ArtStudio. Then the fun begins and I can create my surreal dreamscapes, distorting the lines of reality.
Layer 1: landscape image - I wanted to smooth out the ground even more and take away some fencing so I used the smudge tool and smoothed away. Then I blurred the sky using the blur tool. Changed saturation levels, and exported into Mextures to add some texture to the image.
Layer 2: I erased the head, wings, left arm and partially erased right side from the statue. I didn't like the arm that was there so I created my own that I could stretch out using the existing right arm. Then I added on yesterdays breakfast as a head.

Layer 3 - Bunny Mountains: I created these from a texture layer I made awhile back.

Tonight's submission is from Donna, aka @nicedreamwithu, let's hear about her process.

Thank you so much for asking me to share a piece of my world. I guess you
could say that I am a curator of pieces, of this and that, wings, tortoise
shells, blades of long grass, twigs, imperfect flowers, patterns on
scarves, pieces of jewelry, anything that I can use to create a dream - a
fantasy.

To take a rather ordinary portrait and to have it blossom into something
unique is what I love to do. I get lost for hours layering patterns,
digitally painting my delicate imbalances of life. Warping colors, turning
photos inside out, and upside down and then find moments of art that
sparkle like Water in the Sunshine.

For this particular composite, I started with a color photo of my daughter
Kristen dreammmcatcher taken with the iPhone 5. Cropped it in PaintFX and
then to PicTapGo for a black and white feel. Using photos of bushes and
trees from our yard, I layered the photos in PaintFX, adjusting contrast
and opacity. I also added a touch of brown bark to portions of the photo. I
brought the photo over to Mextures for a little bit of grit and grain, and
some emulsion. I love to collaborate with my daughter. She is my favorite
canvas to create on.

ArtStudio is my favorite creative app to use, and even though I didn't use
it on this particular piece, you will see a lot of digital paintings in my
gallery done using ArtStudio.

Thank you again for inviting me to share, Mandy.

Hi everyone! I want to give a massive thank you to MobileArtistry in particular to Wilma for this opportunity.
I have only been taken pictures since I start my gallery in instagram and its been an amazing experience so far, i'm constantly amazed and inspired by
the incredible talent of artists like the ones portrayed in this fantastic gallery. Always learning some more.
Almost all of my pictures I take with iphone 5 and I edit them very simply with apps like Snapseed, Instasize, Picsart.
This picture is very special for me for its personal emotional meaning and because its the first time that I took pictures underwater.
I hold my camera closed my eyes and shoot and from the many shots I chose this one. Its very simply edited, I just made it black and white
and then changed the filter with the built in filters in Instagram, does all.
Thank you so much again.

Tonight's submission is from Angel, aka @angelandpearl, let's hear about her process.

I took this on my iPhone and edited with snapseed, mextures and stackables.
I’m currently studying photography and really love combining the natural world with light and editing to create mood.
Portraits and landscapes are my preferred subjects at this stage but that may change as I progress.
For me, photography is all about capturing and creating emotion. You want the viewer to connect and be moved by the image enough to be inspired.
I thank instagram for creating a portal for me to experiment and connect with wonderful, clever artist’s the world over. It’s really lovely to share with each other our unique perception of life.

Tonight's submission is from David, aka @mypaintinglife, let's hear about his process.

Thanks to Mobileartistry and Mark for this feature. My approach and technique tends to vary and has evolved over time but for this feature I wanted to create something that was more reflective of my painterly interests and combine some of my older images that I have been wanting to use for some time.
So this image uses as a background an image of a local bridge, I am often drawn to bridges, trucks and shipping containers as wonderful elements that catch the light and throw long shadows. I spent quite a long time cleaning up the bridge image, removing light poles, boats, a jetty in the foreground and buildings and trees in the skyline. I wanted to reduce the complexity of the image and draw attention to simple lines and tones. I use photoshop touch for this work on my iPad. Finally I reduced saturation and added a Gaussian blur to add depth and interest.

Next I added the man with the hat, I always love hats, adding interest and again great for shadows and light. It was important to me to compose him in a way that immersed him in the image and gave him the right weight but perhaps at the same time is slightly off kilter. I didn't edit the image in any other way.

Finally, I added a number of texture layers from my 2econdskin. I inserted these in photoshop touch between the bridge and foreground image and played with opacity and blending, using the overlay mode to create the dark mood and enhance the vibrancy of the light.

Tonight's submission is from Cecilia, aka @klimtt, let's hear about her process. -------------------------
How I edited my Picture:
1. The first Photo
was taken in my garden with my iPhone 5s and edited: - 1°. With "ShockMyPic" - With the Maximum image resolution - Sometimes I edit once and again the same image. - 2°. With "DistressedFX" - With filters "Stirred" and "Charm" -3°. Than I blend the two results images in "ArtStudio" My favorite App of all times, where I can achieve many fabulous results. ------------------- 2. The second Photo
is a self portrait and was taken with "100FX" App. - 1°. With a simple edit using "artistic brush" with "iPhoto" App for iPad ------------------- 3. The final image - 1°. I blend the first, the second and a third image of a 'textured sky with birds' (made before with Mextures), in "ArtStudio" as different layers. - 2°. And than I open the image again in "DistressedFX" to finalize with filters.
I named the result image as " Auto Portrait - with my Garden Flowers"

Tonight's submission is from @fethers, let's hear about his process.

I am glad to have the opportunity to share my work and creative process on mobileartistry and to show this to Mobileartistry and it's followers. The photo I have chosen has been in my gallery for a while and I decided I would finally use it. Here's a brief description of what I did: I put a white facemask on my victim and then I let her rub black color over it. While she was doing that I was taking photos. When this was finished it was time for postproduction. I started with Flowpaper to make the "ectoplasm" in the background. Then I placed it along with the photo into ArtStudio where I set layer mode, masked and blurred the "ectoplasm". When this was done I ran it thru Mextures. Final touches' such as blur, brightness and contrast, were done in Snapseed.

Let me giving a special thanks to MobileArtistry for choosing my art, and Mark for invitaing me! That was an incredible and unexpected surprise for me, indeed! Something about Theatrical history. My world is a world of symbols and images. I transforming image into creative picture. I'm balancing on the thin line between reality and imagination.

This image 'Theatrical Stories' was edited by Snapseed app.... I'm started with imported the image and croped it. Tunning my shoot (use contrast, brightness & shadows to balance them). Than I used drama, vintage & retrolux filters with addition of textures) I do everything on feelings!!!

First I would like to thank the artist MobileArtistry for this opportunity and for the platform to show our work. I especially like to thank Yifat for inviting me to participate, it's such an honor to showcase my work beside more talented artists, thank you.
Process:
I first used Pixlr Express and applied the silk app and adjusted the contrast, from there went into Repix where I used the remove and charcoal brushes. Then into PicsArt's color brush and made adjustments then last stop was in Snapseed for the final adjustments.

Tonight's submission is from @luison_street, let's hear about his process. It's been shot a few weeks ago, July 11th in Molinaseca, a lovely village in the region of El Bierzo, in the North of Spain. I've been invited by igersbierzo to promote on IG "El Camino de Santiago" passing through this region, and I've shot lots of pics.

This one in particular was shot at 9:00 pm, when the sun was already setting, the light was low and the shadows very long. It's been shot on my iPhone 4S using Hipstamatic (Jane + BlacKeys Supergrain) and I only used Snapseed to crop the frame (I must say I don't like frames). That's all the editing. What I like about Hipstamatic is that, if you choose the right combo, you don't need any further editing.

I couldn't resist shooting some pics of the same scene when I saw this woman smoking, backlit by a low sun, in a narrow and lovely street, while her boyfriend was shooting pictures of the building' facades. The light was perfect, and the moment was perfect. That smoke around her face which prevents us from seeing her adds a certain mistery to the pic that fascinates me.

Tonight's submission is from Gill, aka @gill_clement, let's hear about her process.

I am thrilled and honoured to be asked to feature again on this inspiring forum, so huge thanks to Mobile Artistry and Yifat for giving me this opportunity.

I love editing, sometimes a picture cries out to be posted without needing to be edited - but I can't resist doing something, maybe just a little maybe a lot, but something that makes it more 'mine', it doesn't always improve it but for some reason I feel more satisfied, like I've played a bigger part in the process of creating the image.
This is a prime example of a picture that started life as a perfectly good hipstamatic image of some people walking down a pretty alley, an image that was more than good enough to be given a chance to be seen, but no instead I did this to it!....
1) Superimposed the walkers out of their lovely scene and got them walking into blackness
2) Blurred them in BlurrFX and added texture in DistressedFX
3) Decided it was all too black so back in Superimpose faded the dark into light
4) Then brought in the bird from another image and blended him in with colour dodge - don't ask me why but when I tried it it seemed to work, like he was guarding them along their way
5) In DistessedFX again I added more texture layers to bind the images together better
6) To lighten it I threw it into Camera+ and used Backlight
7) In Stackables I added the Split Wall effect
8) Finally, because I never know when to stop - I Percolated it as little as I could to give the negative space a subtle geometric feature (probably too subtle to even notice!) Continued in next comment...

Tonight's submission is from Agus, aka @agus_et_al, let's hear about her process.

Hi. First of all, I wanted to thank Yifat for choosing me for this feature, for her patience and kindness. It's an honor to have my work featured in this beautiful gallery, along with so many talented artists.

I took this picture with my IPhone 4s. The starting image was already nice, but nice is never enough, right? I asked my daughter to extend her hand into the air (something she was happy to do) since I wanted to add some birds to the picture from the very beginning. Then I decided to go a little "darker", so I added CROWS instead (five in total). I also added a fantasy tree, and the black cat (I loved the position of this one straight on). All the added images were downloaded from a free png-stock page. I had to add grass to cover a car and make everything look more real.
After working with the images using the mask in #unionapp, I imported the flatten picture to #Mextures. I'll share the formula at the end of this comment*, but basically I've worked on the necessary adjustments (more contrast, less exposure and a film filter), and added some Grit and Grain, Grunge and Emulsion.
Then I saved the image and opened it again on Mextures to add the extra color and light. For this, I used a vintage filter and some light and leaks.**
Finally, I imported the piece to #stackablesapp to add depth of field, some blur and one final filter (pale frame). I've submitted this formula to stackables too.
I hope you enjoy the final piece, which I named: «We are not in Kansas anymore". I am sure you believe, as i do, that "there's no place like home", but exploring is always nice. It is possible to find beauty in the dark.

Thank you Will and MobileArtistry for featuring my photograph. It is deeply gratifying to be given the opportunity to share my work with such a talented community of people. Every day, I look forward to seeing the world in a different way through the images you all share with me—I hope and strive to do the same for you. Whether I take a picture of a tree, a glass of water, or a portrait of a woman in a bathroom, my goal is to present the mundane that you all see and embrace every day as ordinary, and hopefully transform it into something a less ordinary—perhaps you will never look at these things in the same way again.
