Watercolor on Canvas

Last post was 7-1 so imnot sure if anyone is still reading this thread, buuuuuut here is mu quick 15 mini entry.

this was done in PSP 7.04.

Took the image and median filtered it, fur filtered it, added some noise, copied layer, hot waxed it, and blended luminance at 50%.

The median filter gives the water color look, and the noise with the hotwax gives the canvas texture texture.

The "mini's" have no expiration either, so though it's been a while since this thread was active your contribution now is fine.

I've got PSP 7.0x and until now hadn't seen a use for the Hot Wax effect. You've inspired me to take another look. Pretty cool.

Glad you've found us and appreciate your contributions.

Keep having fun!

Danny

Thumbs down OK, Nero, spill the beans already!

Very creative, Doug! Given your hectic schedule, glad you choose to spend a few 'on hold' minutes on this one. Please fiddle (or flute or oboe) here anytime!

Give us a few hints on how you did this. I have not a clue about your method...among other things!

Hmm...as I recall, I duped the layer, applied a huge USM, used that goofy difference filter , flattened, deleted green and blue channels, ran threshold, embossed, ran threshold again, used black for color range selection, ran Dreamsuite's liquid metal filter, put new blank layer under main layer, set main layer to linear light blend mode, used diamond-shaped flesh-to-brown gradient on new layer, then went in and hand-painted a few places.

I like how his shirt came out, best.

Difference Blend Mode: Another useful use in Photo Art

To quote a reviewer on this site for whom I have the highest respect: "YIKES!"

Glad that download was long. What an inspired and creative combination of steps and tools. Without a few crumbs along the path, few could possibly imagine, let alone duplicate it.

OK. That's twice in week I've been shown a "useful" use for the Difference blend mode. Thanks for gracefully opening up that door to new possibilities. I guess I'll have to upgrade it from "Goofy" to "Occasionally Useful."

Perhaps a thread on that subject would be in order... I'll noodle on that and get something going, perhaps today.

I had fun with this one. I chose to keep it
photographic and turn him into a mountainman.
I cut a squirel pic I had for the hat, added a
Colorado background and photographed my
fringed jacket for his toggs.

Woody:

It didn't take long at all for you "to catch the spirit." My wife wanted to know if you could clone some hair on my chest like you did for Mountain Man! (I told her you'd be able to in about 30 seconds if you had a pic of me to work with, but we won't go there!)

Welcome to the Sandbox and keep having FUN!

First time I've managed find time to visit this particular forum and am amazed at some of the MMs.

Wanda's version looks extraordinarily like BigAl himself (another wild man!).
