PHOTO ART: Mini-Challenge #22 - OhThatGirl2001

Here’s another “mini-challenge” to play with in the Photo-based Art category until the next offical challenge is posted here.

See "Information and Guidelines below" if this is your first mini-challenge.

PHOTO ART: Mini-Challenge #22 - OhThatGirl2001

This stunning image was used in Retouching Challenge #12, where the objective was colorization.

Lisa (aka member OhThatGirl2001) graciously granted permission to use it here in a mini-challenge, so we can take it in yet another direction. Chalk? Sketch? Colored pencil? Oil?

Enjoy this one, too.

INFORMATION AND GUIDELINES

Unlike “official challenges” for this forum which can be found here, this one will be self-contained within this thread. It is intended as an opportunity to engage in this artform until the next official challenge is posted.

The rules are more-or-less the same:
* It’s a challenge, not a contest -- intended to provide opportunities to experiment, share methods and/or techniques and, most importantly, have FUN.
* Everyone who participates is a winner.
* There’s no expiration date.

GUIDELINES:
1. Use any method, application(s), style(s) you like:
. * Convert to sketch, grayscale, abstract, watercolor, oil painting, pen-and-ink, Conte crayon, impasto, van Gogh or any style of your choosing
. * Add elements from other images (collage) or replace the background
. * Hand painting? Tracing? Freehand? You bet. Always appreciate entries of this nature.
. * Apply filters from your favorite application(s) or tweak it with 3rd party plug-ins
. * Feeling animated? Batting eyelashes come to mind...
. * Any or all of the above

Bottom line:
How you create this masterpiece makes no difference. Whatever floats your boat as long as you follow guideline #4 in the process.

2. When done, reply to this thread and attach your work (don’t forget the 100kb size limit).

Note: Multiple entries OK if you’re so inspired.

3. By all means include some verbiage on how you achieved your masterpiece so others will benefit from your skills and experience. Make it as descriptive as you like. Grammar and spelling will not be graded. Priority given to content, not how it is written.

4. Have fun.

Applied a combination of colored pencil, angled strokes, photocopy and film grain filters + a little texturing with Paint Engine.

Blurred a some edges that I thought looked a little too rough, and added a hue/sat adustment layer set to colorize for the eye color.

This one is fairly basic... I spent ages trying out a bunch of techniques (and learned a lot in the process) but ultimately I liked this one best...

It's a combination of the original image with some Hard Light applied and then some layers produced using the Virtual Painter plugin - VP Pastels overlaid as a Color layer and VP Colored Pencil overlaid as a Darken layer. Lots of playing around with order and opacity; think there was some blurring and stuff in there too. Of course I didn't note down the settings I eventually used in the plugins, either...

The net effect is just a fairly ordinary coloured pencil type effect, but I liked the way it seemed (to me, anyway) to focus attention on Lisa's eyes. None of my other attempts seemed to pull that off.

Look At Me!

OhThatGirl

Duplicated image.

Selected eyes, eyebrows, nostril and lips separately and put them layers by layer > New > Layer Via Copy.

Selected Filter > Stylize > Find Edges.

Adjusted opacity of Lips to 83, Left eyebrow to 77 and Right eyebrow to 53.

Shaded side of hand next to cheek using airbrush and smug tools.

Selected Filter > Render > Lighting Effects, Style = Default and Light type = Spotlight.

That’s it.

Don

Here is another of the same picture that I used an airbrush tool and went around the outside of the picture to give it a different feel.

Here is one I did a long time ago when the challenge was originally posted as I was just playing around with the image.
