Butterfly

Very nice effect! I like the extension beyond the frame and the dual colors

Thanks Woody. I played around with different filters (stain glass, and various paint filters), but I just didn't get any results I liked. Then I thought about having the butterfly just leave the image and to really make the butterfly stand out I decided to make the image a black & white photo.

WOODY:

I've gotten to the point where I REALLY look forward to opening your creations. Each is so unique expression-wise.

T PAUL:

The world is a better place because you avoided some yardwork for awhile to have a little more fun. Butterfly extracted & "lifting off" from Polaroid pic. Just an ingenius concept... and the color / grayscale combo really works here.

Very nicely done.

Hope everyone who contributes to these threads realizes how much FUN I have checking these out!

FWIW.............

this thread piqued my minutia-minded curiosity and I couldn't resist a google search. the results were too vast to print here, but you might find a term to your liking at........

Love all the variations of what i like to refer to as FLUTTERBYS! Makes more sense to me than flying butter!

Where's Waldo?

I named that cute yellow butterfly Waldo and have snatched him off his pink flowers and hidden him in a swarm of other butterflies that I squirted out the "hose" in my new Painter 7.0 (the "hose" sprays repeats of little pictures all over the place...you can add your own, but it comes with butterflies already!).

Ever since I learned here how to do the impasto style texturing, I have been experimenting with it, so we have "lumpy" butterflies today! It's a bit on the bright side, but then "Where's Waldo" books are for kids so the colors are always bright, right?

After you look at this multi-colored one, take a look below to see it in gold metal, which was too large a file to be allowable. I have always loved making "gold" and "copper" and "silver" things with photoshop, and now I can make them even more easily thanks to tips I got here.

The gold metal butterflies are here: www.innographx.com/photoart.html

Decided to take a quick break a experiment with KPT filters. I used a bit of twirl, and a bit of drip to make it look like the colors are being pulled off the butterfly by the vortex beneath it. I also fine tuned the image a bit with liquify.

Just For Fun
