Re: Aug 09 Contest - Extraction/Coloring

Hi Y'all
Ok, i've been able to extract horse faily cleanly, and put it on a white background. However, this is where it all stops. Where are all the nice saddles and such coming from?

Regards,
Joe

Re: Aug 09 Contest Discussion

Hi Joe, hope you made your way over here

Anyway, I was intrigued by your question. It sounds like you've got a good grip on photoshop, at least to be able to say that your extraction was fairly clean. That was a real toughie. Anyhow, just to show you what I did & how I came up with embellishments, well, it was mostly brushwork & cut & paste. That's all. Other people have their special techniques, boy are they great! Knock my socks off, they do. Some have even shared their method here on this thread. My source for what I use come from my own image files. Hope this helps.

Re: Aug 09 Contest Discussion

I could kick myself, i did the tail wrong, but i guess its all a learning curb and i am new to retouching, i do more digital paintings than retouching, but it was fun to do, so thank you for adding the contest.

Best Regards, HS

I don't think you can do it right or wrong, just differently. I was thinking it looked pretty good.

Re: Aug 09 Contest Discussion

Thank you John, bit confused, because i am in the contest do i get to vote, or everyone that hasn't, doesn't take much to confuse me i am afraid, think it must be an age thing.

HS

I worked it out and now put in my votes.

Re: Aug 09 Contest Discussion

Personally i think that the contestants votes should have been secret, sent to TPaul via email, rather than be on a public board.

I also feel that it would have been cool if the contestants were the ones who did not vote but the viewers who did not join the contest did.

But my opinions, and nothing against anyones judgement, just how i feel i guess.
