wazowski: Mmm....'Take any "legal" photo source image' or can you also take a bunch of images, combine them till you got something cool and then add the retro look&feel? ( 5 years and 1105 days ago )
DanLundberg: If you're going to highlight the notion of 'legaI' and put it inside quotes to boot, I support wazowski's implied principle that one's starting point for retro-ization can be anything that might be legitimately posted in response to any other contest on this site.

Drivenslush: Do we HAVE to follow a tutorial? ( 5 years and 1102 days ago )
Contest Moderator: Yes Drivenslush you do need to use one or more of the tutorials in making your entry. You don't have to follow them step by step but your finished entry must show some influence from one or more of these tutorials. ( 5 years and 1102 days ago )

This is my beautiful sister :) I made her this for her birthday (it was actually yesterday but this took longer than I thought it would) I did go to the link on the contest description and scrolled down through all the different images for some inspiration!! I ended up using this one (http://psd.tutsplus.com/tutorials/tutorials-effects/mix-cool-retro-curves-into-your-photographs/) to create a brush and achieve some great effects! Other than the image of my sister, I used no other outside sources. (5 years and 1102 days ago)
