Maybe this one is kind of Christmasy.

Cheers

Thought I could try my hand on this great selection of the village by Danny. There were about 44 great interpretations and renditions of it. To me those of chiquitita, Trimoon stand out, as I like that style. Also that of lkroll "Thomas Kincaid" style, great job there.

My rendition was done entirely in Painter 9. I was in the past getting tired, of jumping from one software to another, so I am kinda trying to do it all in one software or the other. This is a watercolor rendition !

I can't be the first genius to come up with this technique...it came to me earlier today and this image looked like a good guinea pig to test it on.

I ran Impressionist>linear brush (in CS2) four times on separate layers. I tweaked a lot of the settings; all four layers were identical except for brush orientation. One had horizontal strokes, one vertical, one 45deg SW-NE, the other SE-NW. I added hide-all layer masks to all 4 layers, then painted them back in with varying opacities where each direction seemed to be appropriate, mixing them in places where there wasn't a clear direction suggested..

As an afterthought I added another layer under the other 4 and buzz-simplified it. Then I lowered the opacity of the top 4 layers a little to let some detail show through.

This is a terrific technique, dc. Using Layer Masks to selectively apply a layer's content is a powerful tool in anyone's bag of tricks.

Thanks for sharing this golden nugget!

i agree with danny and that seems like a very good method for making a nice cross-hatch style.

Wow I'm always amazed at the variety and talent on these boards. Fantastic jobs

This one just seemed perfect for a nighttime rendition, but in order to broaden my horizons, I resisted the urge and came up with this, a base layer done in a painted carved wood script, ovelayed with dodge and luminance layers of separate renditions done in some PSP scripts of my own making. finally a top color layer to give it a darker glow, ok so I couldn't resist a little darkness

Garazon, that is a great looking rendition, from the painterly edges to the painterly background and foreground. Great job.
