Very odd effect!

Wanna hear (and see) something really weird?

I was starting to work on Bambi and copied the magenta channel then blurred a dupe of it, and by mistake blended it over the original (layers out of order) and set it to hue mode. A verrrry odd thing happened--swirly interference lines appeared all over the background! I noticed then that the channel was NOT in b/w, but actually had a slight touch of color to it. It was this tiny bit of color that made those lines, since they disappeared when I did desaturate the layer. Stranger yet, it ONLY did it on the 'hue' setting. It was too weird not to use, even though the resulting picture makes Bambi look more like he's IN a butterfly instead of surrounded by them!

I will have to see if I can find another pic that will duplicate this effect...could just be the way that particular background had been previously worked.

Phyllis,
That's a cool effect. It looks like those mouth blown glass scuptures.

Bambi Again

I applied a levels adjustment then the cutout filter. Over that I put a layer of green noise (used KPT "special green noise" but there are other ways to get the same result) and faded the effect. Then applied anisotropic diffuse (I love what it does to noise!) a few times (turning canvas between each) interspersed with sharpening.

I thought Bambi looked a little lonely too, but wasn't clever enough to think of Thumper. Very nice CJ
I used a layer mask to separate Bambi from his original bk/grnd. Smart blur, drybrush, adjusting opacity, and blend modes. Image adjustment, invert, color dodge, gaussian blur. Several layer masks. Taking each mask off with wet media brushes, adjusting the opacity. Selected the butterflies from an earlier challenge, duplicated them. Cute challenge. I had several little Bambi's as pets growing up in the northwoods of Wisconsin. Something happened to their mothers, I remember feeding them with a baby bottle The Bucks did get mean when they reached a certain age, probably the adolescent stage

Night In The Forrest ...

Bambi

Night In The Forrest … It took some time for me to place the Faun, I don’t ever remember seeing a Faun in daylight without cover.

Duplicate … select Deer … Filter > Pallet Knife, stroke size - 4, stroke detail - 2 and softness -5. Filter > Poster Edges, Edge Thickness - 2, Edge Intensity - 1 and Posterization - 2.

Flatten … select All … Edit > Fill > Foreground (Black) … adjust opacity.

Flatten.

Don, the eyes are a clever touch...looks like he got caught in your headlights...or at least your flashlight.

You are right about seeing lone fawns, with one exception. A lot of farmers and country folk end up adopting those whose parents get killed. The orphan fawns often wander into the fields and pasture without mom to tell them not to. Like Wanda, I've seen my share of these adorable little guys. We bottle fed a very young one when I was a little girl and he survived and went back to the forest. Hopefully not to get shot that winter!

Anyone ever find out what kind of deer this is?

Thanks Phyllis

I wasn't sure how many people would understand the effect of the lights in the eyes ...

Here is my try. Pencil sketch. After making color version, inspected channels and chose red channel for pencil sketch look.. Added apple and grass then noise.
