PHOTO ART: Mini-Challenge #06 - Rowboat

PHOTO ART: Mini-Challenge #06

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 an opportunity to engage in this artform 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.

- - - - - - - - - - -

#6 – Rowboat at the Dock

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

Guidelines:
1. Use any method, application(s), style(s) you like:
. * Convert to sketch, grayscale, abstract, watercolor, oil, pen-and-ink, Conte crayon, impasto, van Gogh or any style of your choosing
. * Add elements from other images (collage)
. * Wanna add animation? Go for it. (jumping fish? drain the lake?)
. * Hand painting? Tracing? Freehand? You bet. Always appreciate entries of this nature.
. * Apply filters from your favorite application(s)
. * Tweek it with 3rd party plug-ins

Bottom line: How you create your next masterpiece 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 100kb 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. Make it as descriptive as you like. Grammar and spelling will not be graded. Priority given to content, not how it is written.

4. Have fun.

So what are you waiting for? It's time to have FUN!

~DannyR~

Here's my attempt.
First I duplicated the layer just for safety.
then I used Palette knife filter set at 3, 3, 0
then cross hatch set at 9, 8, 1
followed by canvas texturizer set at 100%, 4 and light at the top.
Then adjusted the image size and here it is.

Hi Sanda:

How's things down under? Glad you had time to play with this one.

I agree with Tom... the canvas effect is very arty. I like it a lot. Looks like you had fun, which is the point, right?

~~~~~~~
Phil:

The work you did on the color REALLY brings this image to life. I compared your results to the original -- and what a difference. Didn't realize (until I saw your rendition) how DULL the colors were to begin with.

~~~~~~~
Tom:

I've begun looking forward to your animation creativity. If yer boat's gonna catch fire, why not while it's IN the water! How convenient! LOL.

~~~~~~~
Here's a different twist. Sometimes I like to convert an image to grayscale and then add a little color to one or two items in the foreground.

To convert the image to grayscale w/o damaging the original Background layer I used a Channel Mixer adjustment layer set to monochrome and messed with the R, G & B sliders a bit.

The Background layer was duplicated and desaturated before applying the vanilla Find Edges filter. I used a Levels adjustment layer (grouped with the Find Edges layer) to give the lines some distinction and remove much of the midtone noise. The blend mode was set to Multiply to neutralize the white, letting the Background layer show.

Added a final layer on the top of the layer stack where some color was airbrushed on via History Brush.

Keep having FUN!

~Danny~

Danny,
Things are pretty good here in OZ, a bit cold but that's to be expected for winter. It got down to -4c here the other night, I know that wouldn't be cold for most of you guys but for us sun-loving Aussies it's pretty cold. I've been wanting to do some of the challenges for a while but I've been pretty busy with work and family but I had a bit of time on my hands and played with this mini challenge. It was a lot of fun.

Cool

Danny
that turned out great...the patch of color is a nice effect.
I think there was some artist that used this method effectively...name escapes me...(in one of the largest escape in history
)

mini-challenge 6 Jim's first version

Here is the first of two entries from me. I did both in PhotoImpact 7, however both came out of a rather long process of trying different artistic and other effects as well as layer/object copies of the image overlayed using different merge methods that I can't note exactly what I did for either.

mini-challenge 6 Jim's second version

For some reason that I can't pinpoint, I happen to like this version better than the first one I posted.

Tom:

Appreciated your kind words. Thanks...

~~~~

Jim...

Of the two I prefer #2 also. It's because of the more random-like brush strokes.

If you took #1 for the colors (which I preferred color-wise over #2) and apply the brushiness of #2, I think that combo would really be something.

Ya done good. Keep havin' FUN!

~Danny~

Danny, I tried as best I could to do just that. However, I didn't save the settings I used with the brushed effect in the second image and what I have here is the best I could come up with... It is close in style but not exact.
