Unhappy

I am soory to hit you with a third one, but this one I need opinions.

This is my Oil Paint system with the addition in this case of a sandstone texture. Does it add to it or detract.

Thanks Chuck.

I developed an Oil Based Painting with Danney and I am trying different things with it. It was developed for people and works great but now I am trying it on landscapes. The great thing about it is you can adjust the texture to your liking. The sand stone was an add in, and I think I used about 4. I will try it with 2.

BY the way down load Mystic and add sandstone to it, I just did and printed it on Pictorico canvas to see the effect and all I can say is wow it looks great. I did that one with 2.

Phil, I like the last one a lot. The texture really does the trick!

Trying for a Japanese wood block effect. BuzzPro, a heavy dose of unsharp masking, and a water paper texture.

Truman thats a great job. I know where you got the fins. Did you use luminosity on the rocks.

Truman, clever and well done too. The coloring on the whale tail is perfect, and I like the softness you added to an overly busy scene.

Chuck, yes, you should have!

Jim, that's a really great looking pic! Love the texture you achieved. Again, I think I may have given up on Buzzpro too soon.

No, I just modified the levels and applied AlienSkin JPEG repair. Overall, just a quicky that took about an hour to tweak.

Truman:

Exceptionally creative! One of the best I've seen. Great image and color blends.

Phil:

Watercolor version. Of the three I liked this one the best.

RE: Texture on #3
Too much texture detracts from the image. I'm with Chuck on this one... I'd tone it down a couple notches.

Phyllis:

More creativity. You -ARE- amazing. My preference is #2 with the lettering and texture effect.

Bruce:

The edge treatment and especially the faded background of characters definitely enhance the final result.

Frank:

I don't think there's necessarily a connection between having artistic talent and having creative vision. (I'm with you on the former trait.) One can be taught (and can develop) technical skills.

Creativity can't be taught.

RE: "...most importantly, I'm adhereing to rule number 4(?), I'm enjoying myself!"
Hail to the Chief. A+ on that one!

Art:

Very creative combination and blend of Sumi-e and Smart Blur/Edge Only. Works very well with this image.

Jim:

A terrific result. The woodblock vision was inspired.

Great stuff, gang! Keep 'em coming!

Sketch effect treated with anisotropic diffuse and assorted blending modes. Then the depth and glow was added with KPT6 marvelous indispensable best-ever "equalizer" filter, which both sharpens by color, edges, and/or contrast as well as blurs/sharpens by different size pixel groupings. You can blur larger areas while sharpening edges at the same time, for example! And you still have a week left to order this package really cheap from andromeda.com! I would never want to be without this filter now that I have used it!

Phyllis--does NOT get a commission
