THE BEAT GOES ON
This image was produced for a WeekEnd Theme challenge. The challenge was to produce a tribute to Rock and Roll using the words 'Rock and Roll', pictures of the Beatles' 'Sgt. Pepper' album, Elvis Presley, Eric Clapton's guitar, a vinyl record and two teenage dancers. I wanted to express the idea that today's generation owes its dancing, its modern beat music, to the musical legacy of the giants of rock and roll.
I decided to silhouette the teenage dancers, representing today's beat lovers, against a sunset. Terragen was used to produce the sunset with water scene, and the words were placed in the sunlight streaming across the water. I placed the great figures in the bright sky, with Elvis nearest the sun, fading them into their surroundings, and linked them to the dancers with a cascade of records.
