Amanda, it's certainly true that the same treatment will yield different results on different pictures. But I like the effect you did achieve here...so moody and dark and intense...especially love how the yellows/golds stand out.

English gent

I aged the gent a couple decades by applying PSP8's Topography filter set at 100% detail. This also gave the photo some depth.

Then I added an all over texture and decided this was time for his end-of-career formal portrait and used Flaming Pear's melancholytron. Softened the whole thing.

One sketch layer with aniso, multiply blend, a filter-render-clouds layer, overlay blend, one "color from original" layer - which means i used an eyedropper to airbrush colors from original image onto a blank layer, overlay blend. This renders a more painted effect. Finally, merged all with the original bckgr layer and framed.

Some great work in this thread. While I especially liked Trine's composite, themanda's oil interpretation inspired me to give my own oil mimic a try.

Using Elements2 with HPTs:
Created a new background for the subject. Then mostly followed the steps in my oil tutorial. Some key embellishments to try and get a darker, antique like result: A Hue/Sat adj. layer to darken & up saturation in reds and yellows. (Masked the subjects face.) Curve adj layer to darken. A layer filled with "dark yellow orange" from the default color swatches with Hard light, low opacity. A gradient fill layer in Multiply mode. Merge visible all this and ran SmartBlur. Masked to only affect the face and white part of the shirt. Finally a rough selection around the eyes, copy & paste from the BG layer. Hand painted a specular highlight in the eyes & lowered opacity to get a good blend.

I'm not completely satisfied with this, but it's probably my best oil-like portrait so far.

-Mark

Outstanding result Jaykita - I wish I understood your explanation better so that I could try it out in PSP and there's no "aniso" in PSP unfortunately. Terrific effort SWE, I like the texture.


PSP8.01

Dupe bottom layer
L2 - Glowing Edges (2-20)
Decol and Negative
Dupe L2
L2 - Gaussian Blur 4.00
L3 - Multiply
Merge Top Two layers
L2 - Paint Alchemy - Little Dutch Boy Sketch (My own Setting)
Layer Blend Mode - Luminance (L)
Merge both layers.
The image can be decolourized again for a BW sketch
I faded the outer edges.

English Gent:1

I wasnt looking forward to this one, not entirely sure which method to adapt so went with the ever so popular Impressionist.

Cant really go into too much details with this example, however it involved about 7 level of the impressionist filter with some minor adjustments to each application. Some layer blending and selective opacity erasing.

Finished off as always with a art paper texture for a little added realism.

Its been a long time....

Hi All,

Been bored with the general photography stuff lately and had to take a break. Was doing some research on how to color a bw image and ended back here. I can spend hours reading and learning threads but tonite I had to sit down and play with this great image.

Not much of a manipulator, but we try from time to time, usually with portraits.

I borrowed an image of the mill a long time ago from who I can't remember (in a forum challenge), so I can't give credit due ...... sorry.

Used impressionist, some blurring, smudging and more blurring to try to get an oil effect.

Ozzie
