Re: PHOTO ART: Mini-challenge #61 – Samantha

I used mostly noise,color halftone,crosshatch and paint daubs,the different blend modes created the darkened areas.I used on the last layer Auto FX's Mystical Tint Tone & Color gradient filter pink & blue it helps to give the impression of a beautiful sunset.

Began with Snap Art Pastel filter in Photoshop and followed with color adjustments, several blending layers and lots of detailed brush work.

Pam, another winner!

Re: PHOTO ART: Mini-challenge #61 – Samantha

i started this one in psp, cropping and adjusting brightness and contrast. i then took it to filterforge and ran 'chinese water color' by MeKenzie. i brought that back to psp and added it over the cropped image with a luminance blending at about 80% opacity.

Re: PHOTO ART: Mini-challenge #61 – Samantha

There are a lot of great posts so far; I opted for the speed challenge to test some of the Smart Filters in CS3.

went with a bit of Paint Daubs, then Diffuse Glow. Rasterized a version of the Smart Filter Object, then opened the Exposure slightly. Great shot to start with!

Re: PHOTO ART: Mini-challenge #61 – Samantha

I got rid of the background, replaced it with a texture, softened the lot and turned it into B/W. Just played with settings till i got the right effect and put a light effect into the background as well.

Re: PHOTO ART: Mini-challenge #61 – Samantha

Here i used Niks efex, solarization filter, but erased the arms and the face. I also softened and lightened the picture beforehand.

Re: PHOTO ART: Mini-challenge #61 – Samantha

So far I like what JB has done the best.

I myself don't do much as far as "fantasy" or "artistic" impressions of my work, I use my photoshop skills to bring out my vision that I had in mind when I created the photograph.

And on occasion you have things that don't always behave, such as columns that lean at different angles, or an imperfect section of a column such as the left one in this image, and so I use my skills to bring out the subject, correct distractions but keep it as a "photograph" more then some new art that took a different direction.

I see that many here have some very good artistic skills and have learned to bring them to light with their Photoshop skills.

Here is my version of this photo.

Re: PHOTO ART: Mini-challenge #61 – Samantha

OK, here is my Samantha entry. You should see me resurrecting a lot of old mini-challenges over the next few months.

Anyway, this image was done the old fashioned manual way by using the brush, smudge, dodge, and burn tools. Some soft focus and other blurring was employed but with a mask added to reexpose the sharper areas of the face. The background was hand built. A few filters were used (thanks to Filter Forge and some styles from my Photoshop WOW book) to add some texture to the image but they do not show up due to the size limitation and jpg compression.

Here is a nice soft variation of my previous image. The image was run through the ColorSketch plugin for Filter Forge.
