There certainly has been a good response to this one with a lot of very creative images.

I'm so glad no one asked how I made my image because I'm the worlds worst at keeping track of my steps.

Overlaid cutout filter layers in different colors, merged, embossed a dupe layer and desaturated it then messed with color balance to get the raised look, played around with blending modes , smoothed a bit with KPT materializer.

I don't think Phyllis ever runs out of ideas.

After what Jerry did to my poor mother hen (see it at http://www.retouchpro.com/forums/sho...7053#post37053) I guess it's hard to shock and disgust. But I'll give it a try anyhow. Just to show the guys that little old ladies can dish it right back. :P

The first one answers the question of why the snake tree screams. (Warning: Don't open these pics if you are creeped out by biting ants)

And of course he's still screaming even though the ants are gone, because those are really painful blisters!

Rest in Peace

Seems ole snake tree didn't survive the ants and blisters. Alas, he is but a skeleton drying in the wind.

I really liked this effect...got it with KPT6 materializer set to a negative value.

Schwartzie, thats a neat effect, almost like hand carved. Great post. And we all agree then the original by Alan can't be beat but ours are nice to.

i tried various colors on this guy, but kept coming back to the original b/w format as it was originally posted.

anyway, the original concept was pretty simple:
rotate 90 ccw
duplicate
flip horiz
crop left and right side just a tad
select "background" areas and darken a bit
shrunk image to 700 pix wide

spent most of my time playing with colors and filters that i just never really liked.

reminds me of one of my quake foes
