Photo by Jamison Thies:

Airbrush work gets a bad rap in my opinion. I find something engaging about the too-perfect gradations, flat colors, and sometimes scary attention to detail. Mind you, I'm not talking about heavily-airbrushed pinup photos, but the works of original art produced with an airbrush.

Here are some research links:
http://www.coastairbrush.com/1artistgallery.html
http://directory.google.com/Top/Arts...tion/Airbrush/

Remember that this is a Photo-Art Challenge, not a Retouching Challenge, so the goal is an airbrush painting, not an airbrushed photo.

Challenge: Turn this photo portrait into an airbrush painting

Post the results here using the following guidelines:
  • Make sure you're using the largest version of the Challenge photo
  • Enter your name in "Enter a title for the photo"
  • Enter the Challenge type and number in "Descriptive Keywords" (ie: "Photo-Art Challenge #501" or "Manipulation Challenge #132"
  • Include a complete description of the steps you used under "Photo Description". (You might want to write it elsewhere and paste it here)
  • Attach your file as an 800 pixel wide JPG file, compressed so that the overall file is under 200k (this usually means 60% compression).
  • Make sure you post to the correct Challenge
  • If you expect any comments for your entry, offer your comments to other entries

As always, there are no winners, no losers, no prizes, only a sharing and learning opportunity for everyone.

How you retouch and how much you retouch is up to you, as long as you fulfill the Challenge. Have fun, and good luck!

NOTE: As is the case for ALL RetouchPRO Challenges, there is NO expiration date on this Challenge. Even after other Challenges go up, feel free to upload your version

I'm not entirely clear about what you're looking for (the links have so many examples). Do you have a couple specific examples? Thanks.

Not sure if Doug would agree, but my litmus test for a good airbrush is 'how would this look on a motorcycle gas tank?'.

I deliberately left it vague. Airbrush work runs the gamut from photo-real to gas-tank chic But you know as soon as you any one of them that it was done with an airbrush.

Then this would be something for me! Lol! I'll accept the gauntlet just for the sheer fun of it. Be back soon with it. ;-)
