PHOTO ART: Mini-Challenge #05

PHOTO ART: Mini-Challenge #05

Here’s another “mini-challenge” to play with in the Photo-based Art category.

Unlike “official challenges” for this forum posted here, this one will be self-contained within this thread. It is intended as a souce of amusement until the next official challenge is posted.

The rules are more-or-less the same:
* It’s a challenge, not a contest -- intended to provide opportunities to experiment, share methods and/or techniques..
* Everyone who participates is a winner.
* There’s no expiration date.

#5 – Bridge

Here's an image with gobs of Photo-based potential.

Guidelines:
1. Use any method, application(s), filters, plug-ins, style, whatever you like to convert this photo to “art.” Watercolor, oil, pastel, Art History Brush, sketch, van Gogh (eek!), convert to black and white, add a frame, hand-paint it, superimpose an image of Michael Jordan over it, animate it, etc. – Makes no difference. Whatever floats your boat as long as you follow guideline #4 in the process.

2. When done, reply to this thread and attach your work (don’t forget the 100K size limit). Note: Multiple entries OK if you’re so inspired.

3. By all means include some verbiage on how you achieved your masterpiece so others will benefit from your skills and experience.

4. Have fun.

The Sandbox is OPEN! Go for it.

I was going to post an entirely different version, and then I tried something at the last minute and decided to post it instead. I can't quite believe how I got to this point from where I was. I think I'll post the "original" so you can see the difference, which is just one layer overlay changed.

I really like this image, Danny! This was a lot of fun to play with.

As a matter of fact, I got so engrossed in playing that I lost track of what I was doing.... This is basically it, although I'm sure I've forgotten a few steps somewhere...



I duplicated the BG layer several times. I ran paint engine on one layer @ a strong Arctic setting. On another layer, I did paint daubs. Sat layers to various blending modes that I can't remember at this point. Did a Chroma Solarize (Flaming Pear) on one. I erased the sky on most of the layers except the chroma solarize one, and I changed the chroma solarized layer to difference which was what caused the darkened sky effect. I painted in a moon, and then added moon rays with Solar Cell (another trick in the Flaming Pear pack).

I added a layer and painted in some white highlights with my brush set to dissolve.

That's about it!

This version is what I was going to put up, and the only difference between this and the bridge 4 is I copied the green channel from the original and set the blend mode to difference (and a Splat! texture filter). Literally like night and day the difference difference made.

A sunny day at the bridge. Bright, ain't it!

I'm going to stop - really I am...

I said I was GOING to stop. I think I've stopped now, but I keep going back to guideline #4...

Great fun, guideline #4 is a live and well. Duplicated, Style, orange gradient w/shadow, Exclusion. Then I don't know what happened, or how I got what I got, but I liked it. Exclusion again, then applied, filter, diffuse glow. That's about it. Thanks, Danny.

A bridge too far(out)

I checked all the entries and all well done...

I reconstructed the bridge and some idiot tries to wreck it.

That is just great, Tom! I wondered when I saw that it was a GIF why you had decided to use that format. I love it!
