While I like the color version, the grayscale one is simply outstanding, Steve.
Thx for not giving up on this site. djr.
I like them both . Did you colorize the bw image or did you grayscale the colored image?
Nice touch on adding the American flag.
This is a quick an easy way to create a painted look...
Applied gaussian blur - radius 3
Changed layer to Darken and lowered opacity to 80%
Applied a Curves Adjustment
You can stop here but....
To add a bit more depth...
Added a new layer
Change Blending mode to Overlay
Now to lower the details...
Applied smart blur
Now for some texture...
Splat's resurface filter set to canvas
And to brighten it up...Equalize.
Very impressive, T...
Glad you brought this one back to life. It's one of my favorite images among the mini's. Appreciate all the "how to" detail, too.
Matters not "how" Andrew... what counts is what it looks like when you're done! I'd forgotten that with the right pic to start with VP-Gouache has the ability to render very pleasing results, like this.
I'm gonna have to dust off VP again. The loss of sleep tonight will be your fault. Thanks for the inspiration!
So much for dusting off VP... I got distracted and went another direction. Though this may look like it was generated via Find Edges or Glowing Edges (inverted), it wasn't.
