bored. thought i'd drop in

I haven't been doing much photoart lately. But here's a random walk with lots of layers, blending modes, & masks which turn out ok.

Ok last image for tonight. I found this one fish I just had to give it a shot to see what I could do with it.

Steps:
Opened the original image and dup. On the top layer I started using my smudge brush set pretty soft and smudged over the whole image. Once I had this done I applied a pencil effect added the texture at this point I dropped the opacity of the top layer leaving it set too normal. I next added a new layer and made the selection for the blurred frame I then inverted the selection and applied the blur and added a inter bevel merged all and this is what I ended up with.

Re: PHOTO ART: Mini-challenge #58 – Tropical Fish

Ok I know it another Art history Brush one from him again.

Well I got a tip for you as well this time as well.

If you do your Art History on a new layer, with a blending mode i.e. Hard light, and a colour layer between this and the background layer.
Have you ever decided that the colour layer is the wrong colour or shade of that colour?
Well if you place a Hue and Saturation adjustment layer above the colour layer, you can change the colour, lightness, saturation etc while pre-viewing the changes you want to make. Also it is very easy to change again layer if needs be.


BTW if you already new this, then why didn't you tell me before then?

Glad you did.
I really got to get to grips with smudging I think - very nice that.
