Edible Desert by Doctor-Gus Edible Desert by Doctor-Gus
I had to compose a landscape for class using photoshop. Trees are boring. The desert has an austere beauty. Since i live in a forest i had to get a little creative.

Everything in the photo is edible, except perhaps for the toothpicks, although i've certainly eaten enough of them over the years to put that into question.

See if you can figure out what i used....

let me guess: raisin, flour (for the sand :D), pickles, toothpick, baguette, mushroom (I thought they were potatoes)

You've always amazed me with you fantasy ^) Great work done.
I'd work a bit with sky to make it more real - plain gradient looks artificial from the first glance. Maybe some clouds would help? Or what if using some kind of thin blue fabric and a powerful lamp behind it to imitate sun and sky?

yeah, but that would've required me to have started on the photo earlier than 30 minutes before the class it was due.

Almost anything is edible. Whether or not it will kill you is a different matter. Rocks are edible, did you use any rocks?

What was you grade?

no rocks, unless you count sugar as a mineral, even then it would be more like sand.

i think i got an A, i don't know. we just present our photos to the rest of the class and everyone makes comments.

Pickles, toothpicks, mushrooms, walnuts or pecans, sunflower seeds, French baguettes, brown sugar, rice and/or millet, breadcrumbs or maybe some other types flour or powders.

I live in a desert, and this is a very nice depiction of the tapestry of what I see around me in Arizona, on the northern edges of the Sonoran desert.

Woooww. I think I see.. :< Hmm.. Lets see if I get this right. xD I see baguettes, cucumbers.. pickles?, potatoes, raisins, maybe seeds? :<, some nuts.., and bread crumbs? Haha, I probably only got the baguettes right. Dx

It's a lovely piece, and from the thumbnail, I honestly thought it was the desert. XD Great job! :3
