PHOTO ART: Mini-challenge# 46 – English Ladies

FIRST MINI-CHALLENGE?
See below for "Information and Guidelines."

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

PHOTO ART: Mini-challenge# 46 – English Ladies

Remember the English gent from a couple weeks ago? This is the other image from that set taken this summer at a festival in Tunbridge Wells, UK and submitted by RetouchPRO member Leah.

Obligatory legal mumbo jumbo: Leah retains the U.S. and international copyright © not only for the original image, but for any photo-art versions of it. Unauthorized distribution or use without her permission are prohibited.

Another fun image. Thanks, Leah, for letting me use it.

Good luck and have fun.

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? Something creative, but not too creative, with that strategically placed flower?
. * 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.

Chuck,
It's a natural. I was thinking about that myself.

Here's an "oldworld" oil painting.
Copy the image 3 times
1st layer - Filter>Artistic>Pallette knife -6 , 3 , 2
2nd layer - Filter>Artistic>Dry brush - 10 , 10 , 1
3rd layer- Filter>Blur>Smart blur - 20 20 edge only. Invert , Adjust level to reduce busy lines. I might have put in a gaussian blurr (I can't remember)
Blending mode - soft light on all three
Erased background from original because it is too distracting. I didn't want to leave it white so I put ... New Layer brush style - heavy oil dry edge light gray opacity 25 to 30 and painted in some colors.
Flatenned , Filter, Render> lighting effects>spotlight. texture channel - blue, amount -3

Tony

Very, very nice result with some basic steps. Thanx for sharing.

Chuck -- You're a b-a-a-a-d boy! Good work, but a bad boy!

Tony -- Lovely! I've been trying for a similar look with this image and just couldn't make it happen -- next time, I'll have a new "recipe" to try! :

Painting

This painting was done with dustnscratches filter, sharpened with KPT equalize (Wow--worth the cost of KPT6 on its own!), overlaid with a texture from Andromeda techtures, and finished with a slight bit of render-lighting embossing.

You still have a week or so to order this awesome package deal from andromeda.com by the way...4 KPT's plus techtures (along with a pretty useless Dreamsuite2).

Thought I'd try a sketch. It's more heavy looking than the lovely sketches by Lynda and Trimoon and others, but then I'm not a delicate sort of lady.

To get a b/w version to layer/dodge/blur, I used the green channel, since it had the most detail where I wanted it.

And instead of gaussian blur, I used motion blur. I also overlaid an extreme motion blur of the resulting image then sharpened that a bit to give the strokes a gentle diagonal look.

I painted the mask with a spatter brush over the left lady's hair, the worst part of the pic, to bring out better texture.

Beware .....Filters are fun but can be addictive.

Used an overlay 100% on a blend mode layer, applied a couple of filters for the scan lines.
Filter--sketch--halftone. For the color used a gradient.
