Thumbs down Hairy Chest

Thanks Danny. This whole site will put "hair on your chest" I am enjoying it very much
since I joined last week. I'm retired so I have lots
of time to "diddle" with PS I hope at some
point though, to make a little $$ on the side
with it

Woody

I thought I would try my hand at one of the mini challenges. I have been really impresed with all the entries.

I used PS 7 and played around with the history brush at various settings. Then I applied the cutout filter to it.

T Paul:

Combining Cutout filter + History brush turned out quite well!

Glad to see your contributions among the mini challenges (this is the first I've seen; look forward to seeing the others). Mt. Man is definitely looking better and better!

=========

I was playing around (again) with Paint Engine. This is an application of the Impression 1 preset, using the Intensity 2 setting on a layer previously rendered with Photoshop's Colored Pencil filter.

Gnarly Old Mt. Man

I tried to keep it looking like a photo. I figured a true "mountain man" would be weatherbeaten and leathery, and would certainly not have such a clean white shirt!

I used the method described here to make the impasto effect. (Please remind me who gave us this tip so I can thank him/her!) Recall that it's done by using render-->lighting effects-->directional light on the blue channel.

Next I used stylize-->diffuse-->anisotropic to turn the zillions of lumps and bumps I got into connected wrinkles, then blended the two layers. Also cleaned the bumps off the background to smooth it to emphasize the wrinkled face.

Those were the main operations, but of course there was fine tuning with other functions as well. Among other things I adjusted contrast and color, and gave him even more unkempt hair.

Mt. Man Version 2

I also did a "painting" of Mt. Man. To make the "photo" posted earlier, I blended this particular layer with the really bumpy one underneath to make wrinkles, but I like this layer by itself as well.

Tip: Turns out that when you use the stylize-->diffuse-->anisotropic filter after making a picture rough with the impasto process, you get these neat swirls all over it. I like the look and hope I can find a better use for it in the future. Hmmm...maybe an underwater scene? And...it certainly does great things for hair!

Phylis,
Are we having fun yet? All it takes is just the first step. There's more than one way to skin a cat as you have found out.
Lovely pictures Keep them coming.
