PHOTO ART: Mini-challenge #70 – Hank’s Rose

FIRST MINI-CHALLENGE -or- NEW TO PHOTO-ART?
See below for "Information and Guidelines."

- - - - - - - - - - -

PHOTO ART: Mini-challenge #70 – Hank’s Rose

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

The base image can be downloaded by clicking the link near the bottom of this lengthy introduction!

This stunning image was taken by Hank K., one of the regulars from DPReview, who graciously granted permission to use it in this mini-challenge. Stunning picture, I’d say.

Given how so many seem to enjoy creating floral art, there should be some terrific interpretations here.

As always, 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 art form until the next major 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? Animated entries are definitely welcome. There have been some really funny ones submitted in the past. Fish jumping, leaves falling, wheels turning. You get the idea.
. * 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.


A special message to those who are new to Photo-art
… Who may be feeling a little uncomfortable about posting an entry.


If you’ve read this far, it means you’re at least curious. That’s a good sign.

But what if you’re feeling a little squeamish about posting your first image?

From time to time I hear from those who want to participate, but have considerable anxieties about posting their creations in these mini-challenge. “I’m just a beginner. My pictures don’t belong,” “I see the works of others and I know I’ll never get that good,” “How am I supposed to compete with those wonderful creations?” are typical expressions of concern.

To which I say: Put your fears to rest. This isn’t a competition. You will not be judged in the traditional “art critique” sense. Your honor isn’t on the line. This isn’t about who’s best.

Don’t hold back from participating and posting your creation because your initial attempts don’t measure up (in your own mind) to images generated by folks with more experience than you.

This is a no-fault, all-fun way to jump in the pool. Everyone started the same place: The beginning. Everyone who is more skilled and experienced than you got to that point by practicing, experimenting, asking questions, learning from others, and participating.

Can one learn without interacting with others? Sure. Can one learn as fast? Absolutely not.

When you participate, others get to know you. That makes it easier to ask them questions. Asking questions leads to learning from those with more experience than you. It just keeps getting better and better!

By all means give it a go. You’ll be glad you did.

The pep talk cheerfully brought to you by:

Created with an action I'm tinkering with. I'll publish it if I can make it work a little better.

The inside edge treatment came from the 2nd action in the collection that can be downloaded HERE.

here's my entry. I used a combination of Cricket's watercolor technique, my watercolor action minus the watercolor layer, then I used the Minimum filter at 2 pixels, watercolor on the same layer at Brush detail: 12 Shadow intensity: 0 Texture: 3, and some painting using the brush "Heavy flow scattered" and the color picker.

That turned out great, David.

I especially like the results of Cricket's technique, too. Half the fun of this photo-art thing is taking this technique and mashing with that technique, toss in a little of this and that. You're turning into quite the photo-art chef!

The fact that you were able to keep track is a testiment to diligence.

Well done.

~Danny~

This picture lends itself well to a stark simple look, as Danny and David both realized. Here is mine.

Thanks Danny! I missed the edges collection when it was posted so thanks for the link to that, I really like that effect.

Phyillis - beautiful work! the cutout effect looks very nice on this image, I'll have to start experimenting with it.

PJB, I love the crystal effect on the rose. The color change is great, and I especially like the way it shades the edges of each contour as it adds sparkle. Very creative look, and very pleasing.

Here is a watercolor look, with a multi-colored confetti brush on the bottom layer to give it some background color.

Here's my first attempt.

I used the select color range to knockout the black background and replaced it with white. Then, I used Artistic - Color Pencil filter, followed by Find Edge which was then faded, selection inversed and a drop shadow applied.

Phyllis, I believe that's the best watercolor effect I've seen anywhere!

Here's my humble offering. Replaced the background in PS, then switched to Deep Paint for a painterly effect. Back in PS I added a top white layer with a layer mask and revealed the rose picture using Trimoon's Rust preset. A slight curves adjustment to finish off.

Now... please tell us how you did it.
Simple procedure, actually, and turns out different each time...guess I just got lucky here. The steps are in this tutorial: http://www.retouchpro.com/forums/sho...&threadid=4820

In this particular case the two layers that get blended by removing the mask were something like this:

1) original dupe with KPT pyramid paint filter, then hue/sat to give red rose with green background (filled separately) and
2) original roughed up with a swirled/smeared brushing at medium opacity over the original rose, which also filled in the white areas, color shifted in hue/saturation toward pink rose with blue background. Then painted over it, mostly just the background, with a large multicolored "confetti" brush.

Then I treated the two layers as described in the tutorial. The key to this painting method is that there are two slightly different layers, and you erase part of one by painting white on a black mask to blend them together in a splotchy sort of way to make the "painting" look. There are lots of ways to make the layers differ slightly in tone, color, shapes, grain, etc. so that the results can be pretty much anything you like.

Jim, that's really a wonderful job! You have certainly mastered the art of photo painting.

Lisa, very effective use of filters...good choices. The shadow and the black outline gives it a shadowbox look, as if it were mounted that way in a box frame. Nice idea.

Goldcoin, your work is so unusual and creative, always look forward to opening your posts. The red one with black outlines is especially pleasing...I picture it hanging on a wall over a white leather sofa!

Oh my, all renditions are beautiful. I like them all.

I'm getting addicted to Painter. My attempt here is oil pastel on silk. Silk is not really a good material for pastel but I want to put some texture.

One thing I found out about Painter: Painter compresses jpg aggresively but still gives a detailed picture.

Tony, that is absolutely positively incredibly gorgeous! I could run out of adjectives before I praised this effort enough. Wow. I love the smooooooth silky satin look, and your brush strokes are just perfect. I have downloaded it to my keeper file.

Sadly, I am unable to use my Painter7 because my tablet driver is messed up and hubby has to get me a new one. Yes, I am a computer illiterate when it comes to installing or fixing programs...I just use 'em

Here's an oil painting look done in Photoshop. I attempted to make it look like the background was the rest of the garden out of focus. It's mostly done with scatter filter, clouds filter, black marble pattern adjustment layer, and a brushstroke pattern/texture I made a while back. I used the special pattern twice, normal size in color burn mode, and enlarged size in vivid light mode, both reduced opacity. This pattern can be found at:

First of all congratulations and thankyou for taking on the mini-challenge forum..You have always provided great pics for us to work on.

Also, your watercolor is really exceptional and your last entry is also great..

Tony and Jim, both of your painted entries are really great.

Lisa and David, both very nice..The entries are all so pro looking..

As for me, I have locked myself in the closet and am fighting to get used to my new tablet and am trying to learn enough Painter to get along..I vowed that I would only submit in Painter till I learned enough of it to at least be fair at it.. Here is my try using Painter..

Jerry

P.S. Painter files must be huge..I had to reduce this to 700 pix. at zero quality..Hope it looks like something.

Definitely worth the closet time

Jerry:

Good for you on the Painter and tablet quest.

Down the road I can envision reading your reassuring a newbie, "Back in ot-three, I made that transistion myself. It was a struggle, but I made it. Look what I can do now. Someday, you'll get there, too."

Based on this creation, I'd say you're definitely on the right track.

Keep 'em coming.

Fantastic everyone. I love viewing all the different interpretations, and they're ALL beautiful

I was thinking of Valentine's Day when I did mine, a little early I suppose. I copied, pasted the rose into a background I already had on file. I then erased the black bk/ground from the rose. I applied Filter, Artistic, cutout and faded, to the rose and new background separately. I then added a little noise to the rose layer. Flattened. Opened in PhotoImpact, framed it and added text. Opened in PS 7 and painted out a lot of the frame so only the oval part of the frame was left. I had a lot of fun as usual. Thanks everyone for sharing your wonderful talent

Chuck, that is really pretty, looks like you're coming along quite nicely with Painter Classic The "gallery demons", boy you're not kidding either. I thought my computer went completely haywire. It sounds awfully technical to me Great work. Don't delte your images in the Gallery, wait and see, ok?

Would a rose by any other name smell as sweet? If we can apply that to sight instead of smell the answer is yes! They all are GREAT. Just put the rose thru the colored pen effect in PhotoImpact with a setting of 55. I thought about removing the crystalline edges but they made me think of an emerging butterfly and its cocoon.

Hello again. You're 2-for-2. This is an exceptional interpretation. Glad you decided to leave the crystalline edges. Definitely adds to the effect. Well done.

I've been trying to remember what I did to get this result. As far as I can remember I ran a lithiograph filter then I'm not sure what i did but somehow I eneded up with something I liked so then I ran a eyecandy glass filter then a KPT materializer filter. I klnow I've missed some steps in the middle but I can't for the life of me remember what they were.

Phyllis,
I managed to duplicate it. It wasn't as hard to remember as I thought, it seems some of the step in the middle cancelled each other out so they didn't make a difference. So I've omitted them.
so here it is.

1 Duplicate image
2 run Xero lithograph filter, settings vibrancy and colourization 127
3 run eyecandy 3.1 glass- mild distortion bevel 3 shape-button, flaw spacing 34, flaw thickness 37, opacity 56% refraction and brightness 100 hilight sharpness 32.
4 ktp 6 materializer tint amount 49% depth 100%
5 adjust colour balance- add a little red
6 clone out any artifacts around rose
and there you have it.

To many post to commet on each one but Chuck I like the look of yours, I think its outstandin and Phyliss your water color is just great and all the others are fantastic.

Anyway a little history brush tech wit a high pass and rice paper to give that etable effect. Like a rose on a cake.

Phili, I love how that turned out...wow! The little shreds of pink all over are great.

Sanda, thanks a bunch for giving us the steps in your marvelous method. I don't know what Xero Lithograph is...where do you get that or what program is it in?

Hi Phillis,
Here's the link to Xero graphics they have the plugin that I used for the rose. They have a number of other good plugins there too.

Here is the result of all the fun I had with this challenge. Being a Photoshop hobby amateur for a number of years, I am reminded by these challenges, just how much I really don't know how to do well. It is very nice to be lured out of my Photoshop comfort zone. Thanks, I enjoyed it. Bob

Wow, Bob, that neon tube rose is amazing! How did you do it?

Hey Bob:

WELCOME BACK. Always nice to have folks who've been away for awhile leap back into the pool!

This is a very creative interpretation. Brilliant execution. Hope you'll be posting more in the near future.

Thanks all for the nice comments.

Phyllis, After running a simplify filter a few times, and Gaussen blur, I ran high pass filter (midrange), and than ran glowing edges filter (to taste). This created the neon tubes. The result needed a few more pink tubes which I freehand brushed in and touched up. I cheated on the lettering, (lacking neon how-to) and only ran bevel and emboss.

In a perfect world, I would have drawn (traced) the rose, made it neon as above, and learned how to create neon text. Maybe next time. Bob

I have been finding lots of uses for the high pass filter of late...but never would have guessed it could be used in this way! Thanks so much for the info. Tried it and it works great! Going to be fun trying out this filter combo on other pics! Nice of you to share it with us.

Here's a page from a coloring book...who doesn't remember the joy of a brand new box of crayons and a brand new book to color in. It's probably what got all of us started on "art" and now here we are!

I used IP Process adaptive equalization filter (free from web) to get the waxy bumps of the crayon texture...then used other filters, including high pass and cutout, and did a lot of layer blending too. Got the outer black outline by selecting the black background and contracting the lasso by a few pixels before lifting out the rose to its own layer.

hi,


saw I had downloaded the rose some time ago. I've been trying to make a metal look so used the chrome filter, laquer, blur, sharpen, glowing eddges and all sort of combinations. There's not much left of the actual rose but I post it anyway because in some sort of way I kinda like it.

What a lovely image! Each rendition brings something new to the table. Here is my effort - smudged, weathered, changed lighting, and framed.

Thanks, Don! It's part of the frame gallery in PhotoImpact. I was surprised I could add it and still keep under the size limit!

Roses are always fun. There are so many beautiful things that can be done to them. The entries have been excellent and varied.

I started by turning the black background white. Working from the bottom up.

1. Impressionist--tinfoil
2. imp--thick paint 2 no texture
3. imp--fossil 2 no texture.
4. find edges sketch layer.

Played with blending modes and opacity.

Then added a hint of color to the white.

A Rose by any Name

I thought the image of the flower againist the black background looked great and therefore saw no reason to change it. So I brought up the color in the stem and leaves to match the vitality of the flower itself and then tried to put a complementary frame around it. Nothing really outstanding, just how I saw it.

Catia... Missed your earlier version. This is a very creative interpretation. "A little different" on this one was a refreshing twist.

- - - - - -

Ronlcox... I've seen a lot of frame ideas, but none before like this. Simple and elegant w/o stealing the focus from the subject. Nicely done.

Every time a rose comes to my sight I picture a flourishing of life and energy...

This is my first participation on a mini challenge... I hope you like it, I enjoyed lots working on it


I used a picture I took with underpainting filter, after, that, I gave each layer an inner pink glow.

Render-clouds filter in ps7.
I created about 4 different layers with different forgr and backgr colors (picked at random from image itself) and used the render-clouds filter for all. Erased various parts and used different blends. Finally merged with original - luminosity blend. Simple technique...would be nice if an action were created for this one.
Wish i could send in the layers palette, but my scr capture software has expired. Will do at a later date.

i dunno, alt-print screen worked fine for me so far... though it's sometimes quite an enigma if it captures whole screen or just the palette

1. Free screen print program (works great):

PrintScreen 2000: http://www.freewareweb.com/cgi-bin/archive.cgi?ID=292

2. To capture the active palette or dialog box: Alt + Ctrl + Print Screen

Lovely results everyone and thanks for the link to the screen capture program.

I extracted the rose from the black bg. Created a new square canvas and filled the bg with pink and white clouds (using Mura Meister Cloud Filter). Used PSP8.1 Texture/Weave filter. Neat Image/Reduce Noise on the rose which gave it a nice dreamy glow effect. Placed the rose on the new bg and added a drop shadow. Merged all layers. Applied Impressionist/Trimoon III - djr/Modified. Added a mask.

Hank's Rose

After downloading the file, I copied the layer and removed the black. I then ran Isables_Pastel_Sketch.atn on it and made some adjustments at the various stop points. There are numerous steps involved in the action. I've uploaded this action and it may be posted in: Resources/PhotohopFiles/PhotoshopActions. On this site when cleared by the moderator.

Oil of Rose

Sample of my current oil rendering technique. Lost some of the details due to jpeg compression, but I think the oil still shows. Outline of all my methods can be found at the following links:

Can't figure out how to use RetouchPro's interface,...

...so I'm relinking the image via imageshack:

http://img176.exs.cx/img176/2437/oilofrose0pd.jpg

You will need to hover your mouse cursor over the lower left of the image and click on the expand button to see the detailed picture. Anyway, for some reason, I do not have the ability to create linked attachments within retouchpro; I guess this must be a paid service.

Ditto what Neve said, Lyle. Welcome. Bring more of your FM friends over. You're always welcome.

You sure have mastered Gimp. As you noted in one of the FM threads you've developed "a process," not a filter recipe. It really shows. You do some fine work.

re: embedding links in a RP thread
Not sure why you're having problems... Here's what I do:
* Copy the URL
* In the compose post dialog, click the "world with a link" icon to engage that dialog.
* First box: Type the replacement word/phrase, e.g., "Click here" + OK
* 2nd box: Paste the URL + OK. That ought to do it.

Hope to see more of your creativity in the future.

~Danny~

Thanks.

Still can't seem to link a photo thumbnail to a post, but I'll continue to submit external links when I get additional inspiration. Anyway, due to the high amount of compression, the above oil lost some of its details (but I kept it under 100K per this boards requirements).

Ditto Danny and Neve. You do some great work. Shhhhh, please don't let my husband see you are using GIMP. He has been trying to get me moving in that direction for a year now. However, if I can get the results you did, it might not be so bad.

Hey Janet

I hope your husband does talk you into using GIMP. I use both GIMP 1.2.5 and GIMP 2.2 (some features in the old GIMP were removed from the new, so I'm keeping both; also the GIMP 2.2 lighten only layer property has a bug in it). Anyway, GIMP is very much worth the investment in time to learn. The user interface, in my opinion, is superior to that of Photoshop 5.0 (version that I have currently), and some of the plugin's in GIMP have no equivalent in Photoshop.

An edit and an action

Since I don't always remember all the steps, I wrote an action.

1. Recropped and expanded canvas of the original image for aesthetics.
2. Ran the action (attached below)
3. Resized and added color-coordinated border. *grin*

It's easy to create many variations using this action. It's released to public domain, and I'd be interested in seeing your results, as well as getting suggestions for improvement.

An action is an EXCELLENT (and very efficient) way to document and share your steps. Well done.

I like the results a lot... and your action does provide many opportunities for variation.

Send me an e-mail (click my name above) and I will reply with a revised action and suggestions.

Hank's Rose

This is my first attempt at a mini-challenge. Great concept!
None of the filters used are in Photoshop... all are compatible plug-ins.
1) "serious fog" from Xero
2) "Adaptive Equalization" from IP Process
3) "Moodlight" from Xero
4) "Flourescent Palette Knife" from Imressionist

thana,

well, i could black out the 'naughty' bits, but i'd still have the problem that both the nude and the background dont belong to me, nor do i have permissions to use or post them and little way of obtaining such. it's just stuff i've collected over the years on the net and i've little idea where they came from now. and, if i were to post links to another site, it would still be infringement and RP hosting/linking to 'R' rated material.

sorta makes you wonder why i even did them if no one can look at them, doesnt it

Great job, everyone! Amazes me how many different approaches folks here use.

I'm not into pink roses, so my personal challenge was to change the color of the rose more to the red side. I used PS CS2's healing brush's change color option and simply painted over the pink areas with an orangy red. I also selected the white areas of the rose and added just a tinge more color there.

Added the shadow, background and border. I didn't use any painterly effects or special filters except "clouds" and "texturizer" for the background.

Wow, nice work here. I did a montage using several photos and then buzzed it and used different layer modes to try and get a dramatic effect.

Thankyou for the lovely rose Hank...coulnt resist it so i did it twice....

The first one with the tape effect frame i did witha free plugin from toadies called metal work and then put a frame around it from psp 8.

The second one i did in autofx dreamy...another freebie plus flaming pears flood..i love this plugin..then i put the frame around from psp 9...felt it needed a plain one...

regards Patricia Kay.

Hello Patricia.

I like the flooded rose. "Flood" is a fun plugin.

Re: PHOTO ART: Mini-challenge #70 – Hank’s Rose

Trying interlacing out. To me they look very clear to view and they compress down well. You need to view them full size.
