Smile My submission for Birthday Boy

Hiya folks!

This is my first post ...... and I'm submitting my photo art for the 'Birthday Boy' challenge.

This was fun ..... and I look forward to many more!

I duplicated the original layer, and left the original on the bottom, while giving the top picture several effects, such as poster edges and sharpen. I then extracted the man from the background using my new Wacon tablet. :-) I LOVE IT!!

I made a 3'rd layer, which I made a deep blue and then used Render>Clouds. EDITED: OOPS! Sorry ..... decided against the cloud background ... and replaced with a color from his hair. I then added a small bit of > Noise, and then >Brush Strokes > Angled Strokes. There .. that's better! :-)

I made a 4th layer for my signature... a good artist always signs their work. 'wink'

OH by the way Danny ...... is this hunk single? LOL!! Just joking!

Glad to be here ..... and nice to meet you all ..... hope to get to know you all better.

Hugs,
dd

I'm really having fun viewing the entries on this one Here's my small contribution. First I painted the photo in Painter Classic, then opened in Photoshop, applied, filter, sketch, Photocopy. I simplified the lines by painting over some of them or part of them. I then opened in Painter Classic again and with a paint brush put in shading. Photoshop, applied a very low diffuse glow. i thought he looked like the out doors type, so I put him on a background I had on file of trees and stream. Wonderful bone structure!!!

CJ gets my vote. She made our bithrday boy 20 years younger. Sandra definitely defined his generation.
Here's my contribution. In his youth he must have had his bedroom full of posters that glow int he dark.
So here's your poster birthday boy.
