If I were to guess at how Steve does this... I would say he uses a fill layer with white. Then uses a brush (heavy flow scattered) to reveal or remove areas he wants to show through.

Smile mini-challenge #14

Hello everyone,

I liked your submissions to this challenge, so I decided I would give it a try.

erased the background, painted the girl, lassoed part of the flowers from original image, cut and pasted on to the other image, duplicated the layer several times, arranged the flowers, merged all the flower layers, used a watercolor filter, added a drop shadow to the girl layer, added new layer, painted it blue, put it on bottom, added illumination effect flood default settings to that layer, merged everything, added a glass filter, added a border, applied superbladepro amber to border.

Gazing Girl

I always try, and sometime actually succeed to get a picture that would look good hanging on a wall. The stuff I do is probably not good for anything else, like ads, portraits, etc, but it keeps me happy.

This one is a bit odd. I added a PSP8 rough leath texture, both light and leather colors at black and the blu and contrast set at 6. The I softened it and added the paper texture.

Hi...

I've been trying to do some things that look like drawing. Was going to ask about how to isolate one channel but decided to explore and figure it out.

This is my attempt.

Convert to CMYK.
Click on black channel.
Do adjustments.
Crop with oval.
Run filters of choice. [in this case Wind]
Trash other channels.
At this point I found I couldn't save for web without converting to grayscale first. It turned to be a very small file.


Lots of steps I left out since most were experimental.

Kent:

Another way to isolate a channel is (assuming RGB).
* Go to the Channels Palette
* Ctrl + 1, Ctrl + 2, Ctrl + 3 to easily surf among them
* If you see one you like, either drag the channel over the new channel icon at the bottom of the palette -or- choose Duplicate from the Channels Palette menu
* Select All
* Switch back to Layers Palette
* Create a new layer
* Edit > Paste. You've isolated a channel on a layer by itself to work with as you see fit.

Is this what you meant?

In any event "ya done good" with the CMYK K channel. Wind gave it a unique look on this one.

Manju:

What brush/settings are you using with the Art History Brush? I have never had much luck with it.

Mine:

More messing with Impressionist. I can't leave this plugin alone!

Danny...

Thanks for the tip. I kept trying to copy the channel and paste into layers but was unsuccessful. Now I see that I needed to create an alpha channel first.

Manjumena...

Thanks for the tutorial. I've played with the history brushes with varying success. I never thought of using different brush tips for different effects.

It's amazing how useful this forum can be. I've gone through books and tutorials for some time and haven't learned as much as I have since joining and playing with these photos. The feedback is great and I appreciate the community feel here. It's almost like being back in art school without the smell of turpentine [which oddly enough I miss].
