Your work is great and inspiring to look at.. I learned a lot just from looking at your screenshot of your layer pallet..My layer pallet looks like beef stew compared to your organized work..thanks for sharing..

I have been working on glazing techniques and thought I would try it on a portrait..Jim's beautiful grandaughter is a great subject. Here is first try at a portrait..

Here's my try;

If you go and see my album I have used almost the same method her as I did on my Cold Blue. To give it that "Cold Blue-effect" I used "Selective Color" and tweeked neutral and white several times(after converting it to greyscale, then RGB). Used the erasertool on a small amount to take away those details in the face that wasn't neccesary. Turned up the contrast.

Then I wasn't satisfied with the lack of detail in the eyes, so I took a photo of one of my steph-sons and rubberstamped some detail from that photo's eyes to this photo.

Finally, I pasted the original photo in as a new layer, used the erasortool to get all the detail from the eyes showing through, and then tweeked the opasity of the original quite much to get that "clean" look". As usual, with these challenges I learned a bunch while working on it. I think it got almost a hand-colored feel to it. And this beautiful girl almost have a Mona Lisa dignety, don't you think?

Jerry - thanks for the organizational compliment. The ironic side of it is that I have a reputation at work for having the messiest office around.

Trine - I took a peek at your website. One word: gorgeous. You have an excellent eye for color and composition.

JERRY...

I keep likin' how you're using this technique. Very nice rendition.

TRINE...

This is a very interesting technique. The results are so subtle, almost angelic.

Thanks for sharing more of your experience with us.

Thumbs down

This is brilliant, Frank! You're a real breath of fresh air. Sure glad you got those upload issues resolved!

If you have a digital camera, could you not just photograph a stand-in book from one end and slice/dice/stretch that?

It would probably be very difficult to get a decent image from a flatbed scanner.

Wink Suing Frank, and a new Mona Lisa

Frank, very clever idea to make a book jacket. I just love the way folks here think...always something new! Hey, those are my copyrighted words on the back! I DEMAND ROYALTIES! (Dialing my lawyer... )

To show the pages peeking out at the bottom, I would suggest using a picture of an actual book in that position and drawing from it, over it, or just cheating and incorporating the book pages into your picture.

Trine, what a delicate result you got...worth the time for sure! And you're right...she DOES have a Mona Lisa look! Someone should put her in that painting, don't you think? Anyone up for it?

Phyllis (too lazy!)

Added some pages.

This looked easy! Or so I thought! Photographed a book and then a lot of distorting, perspective, skewing etc to get it all to line up and fit. Good exercise though.
Thanks for the kind comments, I'm new to digital and Photoshop this year, perhaps there is a glimpse of light at the end of the tunnel now.
I registered in August but for various reason didn't start here until yesterday. Now I've started, you might be sorry!
