Painting Recreate - Photoshop Contest [14 entries]

Still Life With Fruit, Game, Vegetables and Live Monkey, Squirrel and a Cat Picture

Winning entry, with a score of:
74.5%
Contest goal:

Find a world famous painting and recreate it in Photoshop using only photo sources. Drawing is in this contest not allowed. You can for instance recreate the Nightwatch from Rembrandt. Portraits are not allowed and neither are sources which are made to copy the painting in question (or a similar one). The goal is to make the painting look like a photo, therefor do not make it look like a painting again using filters for instance. Show us the scene what the painter saw when he made the painting.

Please add an image of the painting you are recreating to a step by step, and the names of both the painting and painter to your description.

Contest Moderator: Everyone, please add the names of both the painting and painter to your description and an image of the painting to a step by step. ( 5 years and 1119 days ago )
nicehotcupoftea: Contest states drawing is not allowed, but can we use the usual blending tools - ie. dodge/burn, smudge, clone etc? I'm assuming we can't use a brush to paint on edges of fur/feathers/hair etc. Thanks. ( 5 years and 1118 days ago )
Contest Moderator: Blending tools are allowed, as long as they are not used to draw large pieces. ( 5 years and 1117 days ago )
nicehotcupoftea: Thank you for clarification. ( 5 years and 1117 days ago )

Still Life With Fruit, Game, Vegetables and Live Monkey, Squirrel and a Cat (circa 1637)

Artist: Frans Snyders
Apparently the fruits and animals have symbolic meaning, eg. the monkey represents evil
I chose this painting because it just looks bizarre (and I like a challenge!)
