So it looks like the "pencil sketch" would be your "Monday hobby," right?

(I'm pulling your leg, here... ) Both are very nicely done, Margaret. Glad to see you're getting into Painter. It has a lot of potential.

Thanks Danny - I'm hoping to come up today with a Tuesday hobby as well, and so avoid real work three days in a row.
Yes Painter is interesting - I need a quick and dirty Tutorial on different kinds of brushes and their resulting strokes. The choice is so extensive and baffling to a non-artist like myself.
Keep up the good work - MargaretM.

Hi all,
Love this picture and all the entries so far.
Tried another waterycolour effort.

PSP

coloured edges
desaturated and lightened
VP oils

Second layer of rough black brushstrokes set to OVERLAY
adjusted sliders on brushstrokes.

Merged all and unsharp mask.

Regards to all,
Mitch.

Wow. Very nice interpretation. I espcially like the texturing.

Did you manually paint the brushstrokes with PSP?

my very first photo art challenge response

Been lurking here off and on for a while now, thinking that some day when I had more time, I'd start participating in lots of challenges and really immerse myself in this really cool corner of the net you guys have built here, but I finally decided that since it could be a while before I make it to that vast oasis of freetime, better at least stick a toe in here and there when I've got a chance. So when I saw this mini-challenge, I thought I'd give it a try.

Fair warning, I come from the world of fanart, don't know what kind of a rep that has around these parts, but, you know, I see a picture of a pretty girl, can't help following my same old familiar fanart procedures... which in this case is (1) layer on stock images I happen to have on the harddrive in various opacities and blend modes (2) because I'm using PS5 without gradiant map adjustment layers, use mehdi's free gradiant smithy plugin to replicate a gold-to-violet gradiant, setting the layer to soft-light (3) Use adjustment layers (levels and selective colors) to further tweak the colors/contrast.

Hi Danny,

Sorry, I,ve only just come back to this thread. The brushstokes were from a Tut I downloaded some time ago. I just resize or cut to suit. Until I get a tablet I'll have to give up on PSP brushes. With a mouse they're full on and off - or it's just me. The brushstrokes were a scan of 'real' paint on paper.

Regards to all,
Mitch.

Granddaughter

I love the old world look of the beautiful girl. I thought I would give her a renaissance look. I edited the photo, Hue&sat, levels, color match to a Leonardo painting, smudge brush set to oils, crackle texture overlay mode. I added a different background and arch.
