Rainy Day

We finally had rain here (needed it badly!) and it inspired me to try to make a rainy scene. I made the rain with vertical graphic pen on a solid gray layer, used KPT electrify to give it some glow, then blended that into the painting I had made. The splashes on the water are done with KPT pixelbreeze.

Thanks, Jeanie

Thanks, Jeanie. I had only been looking at the options UNDER the edit box...silly me! As you see, I have successfully deleted the post in which I asked the question, so now your answer makes no sense! LOL! Sorry.

Hmmm...Unless SHE deletes HER post, in which case THIS one will make no sense...

I'm getting dizzy.

Phyllis

Can you believe 2 in one week! Well, I thought I'd tackle this one - although I think Jim did a wonderful job on this!

I started out with by duplicate layer and then inverted the duplicated layer. Then I changed color mode to grayscale without flattening layers. I changed blend mode to color dodge - this made the picture entirely white. To bring back the color, I then used filter, blur, gaussian blur and fooled with the slider until I liked the result. I saved the image calling it charcol. Then I changed color mode back to RGB. Opened Recent which was the original picture and selected all - and copy and pasted it into the charcol picture. Then changed the blend mode to hard light. Flattened the image. Then duplicated it and changed mode to multiply. Then I used Paint Engine to apply a painterly texture. After that I used Pictographics to change the hue a little... and voila.

There are too many good images in this group for me to comp each one. Most look pretty good. One did hurt my eyes though. Art shouldn't hurt one's eyes. IMHO.
Comps all around.

A wonderful collection of work!

WOODY, GARY and PHYLLIS get the blue ribbon for the "All Weather Team." It's too early (August) to be thinking icicles and (cold) rain, though we could actually use a little rain to lower the local fire danger.

WOODY: Your night / spotlight version really caught my eye. A very creative use of lighting effects.

PHYLLIS: REALLY LIKE the oil-like effect on #2. Well done.

CJ: This is an exceptionally creative interpretation! Did you have this in mind when you started or did it "just happen"?

PHIL: Your textures and colors, as usual, compliment each other well. Very moody effect.

JIM QOM: I was temporarily distracted by the slightly-fuzzy-looking ropes, but other than that the overall effect is outstanding. One of my favorites.

KEN: This AUTO/FX effect is very, very cool. You pulled it off just right. Very impressive and unique result.

JIM JB: Ditto what Phyllis wrote. Dynamite textures and sunset. A definite thumbs up.

LISA: 2 in a week?! What's up with OhThatGirl2001? Wonderful to see your works again. Your tweaking of "the technique that helped launch this forum" just shows (again) that your creativity just keeps happening...and I'm sure glad about that. Likin' this one a lot.

I dusted of good ol' BuzzPro and ran the watercolor.stk preset. Applied a little crosshatch for texture and desaturated a bit to tone down the BuzzPro enhanced colors.

Thanks again to Bill Brosen for loaning us his masterpiece.

Remember: No expiration! If you are yet to be inspired or inspired again, give it a shot.

Tom... I knew I could count on you for a little comic relief!

Brings to mind one of the classic movie understatments of all time said by Roy Scheider's character to Cpt. Quinn in Jaws: "We gotta get a BIGGER boat!"

LOL! Great stuff.

Jaws attacks!

Tom, I love the way your shark takes a bite out of the boat! Nice job--the missing chunk looks believable, and that makes it really effective! Not to mention scary!

Phyllis
