Hold The Phone

With all these fantistic submissions I am almost embarassed to submit my humble attempt. I got a very 1920's feel from the original and wanted to do more of a sketch, but got jpeg'ed. Anyway here is my simple submission, photo Deluxe-Sepia Tone, PS 5.0-Graphic pen, Media Spark-Darkrn edges. Hope this works, the last one was too large so I had to reduce the file size.

Well, I didn't know what to do with this so I just started playing around to find some inspiration -- first lightened it up quite a bit, then did the SlapDash3 action to use as a "painterly" base. Then added the eyes back to serve as a focal point -- they had all but been obliterated by the paint effect. Then levels with a layer mask to darken everything and serve as a light channel coming from the upper right to our star... lastly, a close crop and a Splat frame and there you go.

So many expressive entries with this great pix, enjoyed viewing them.

Tried a watercolor, maybe later an oil......

Mikl, you achieved a great texture with that filter combination... I like it! I would suggest, however, that you partially remove some of the effect from the face especially around the eyes since you don’t want an effect to change a face or expression too much.

Tony, very clever! Now it has a totally new mood. Wondering what she’s thinking about so seriously? She looks distressed, like she can’t pay the rent, or had a fight with her boyfriend, or can’t find her phone.

Jean the lighting and texture work together to add depth and enhance the mood...good job!

BK, wow! Pychedelic! A sixties girl with an antique phone, I’ll bet!

Phili, I like how your simplifying effect has softened the pic, especially the background...gives it a new feel entirely. I’m not sure about the enlarged texture though...reminds me of worms.

Willie, good use of graphic pen to add texture. Looks like a cross between old photo and sketch...simple yet effective.

Scott and Goldcoin, two nice soft watercolor looks. A smart way to go with this pic because of the jpeg artifacts.

Phyllis

Jerry: Positively BRILLIANT.

Used a modified version of the Slap-Dash3 action mentioned in THIS THREAD, followed by an application of the Edit > Stroke command (twice) for the frame.

WOW!!!!

Everyone did such a great job that I had to take a shot myself. I saw what I wanted immediately! I knew before I even uploaded to PC that this was going to be sometype of painting look. I am already shopping for a frame!

After seeing all the wonderful work you have done I am almost embarrassed to show you all my version....oh well, here goes, although it is rather boring compared to what I have seen so far!

Gosh, you are all really really good at this!

Take care,
NiteOwl

First time poster, although I 'hang out' occassionally over at DPREVIEW with Danny. I wanted to really change the mood on this one and highlight the phone.
