Bill:

Are there rules of thumb for "what colors to select" for a duotone or tritone image? Or do you take canned combinations from somewhere?

Again, great stuff here. You're really keeping me busy "thinking about new possibilities." (a scary thought!)

Danny

Don't know about any rules, Danny, this is my first day on this technique! I just cycled through loading the canned ones until I found one I liked. But I have played around with some bluegreen ones of my own.

I really like trains and was trying out a new action on this version (see next post).

This is part of ongoing testing of a new technique that uses a denoised India Ink layer as the luminosity pattern. The variation here used Color blending instead of partial opacity.

1. Duplicate background
2. India Ink
3. Diffuse|Anisotropic
4. Smart Blur
5. Copy background and place on top of stack. Set to Color blending mode.

That's the basic effect. After that I hand-painted on the gray layer to reduce bright spots. Blur tool on some edgy spots. Other minor touch up. Add very light grain.

Really like trains.

Mentioned this before; mentioning it again. Anyway, Dup for 3 layers, used Invert Color Script-fu set to Screen (on top layer) merged down and set to Value and flattened. Repeated the same process, but instead of Screen, I used Dodge and adjusted down the opacity a bit on the top layer before merging down and doing the Value step. Almost looks like a watercolor now, but it still needs additional nuances. I duplicated and added some noise to the top layer before running Flaming Pear's Pixel Trash filter. I then set this layer to Value and adjusted the Opacity a bit. I flattened and ported the result into PS to use Paint Engine's @Wetter2 preset on the sky (and a few select other places). I then ported this result back into GIMP and duplicated the layer and ran DCSpecial's 1969 filter on the top layer, duplicated the result, and set the Top layer to color, and center layer to Value (adjusting Opacity of both layers to taste). Flattened and done. Hope you like the resulting watercolor.

I seen talk of some folks using Fantastic Paint Engine with a few different presets like Leroy & Temp 3D I have paint engine but it only came with one preset. Where would I find the others?

Thanks in advance.

i'm sorry; this is a bit of a shameless rip-off of the polar express idea, but it was what first came to mind

simple enough to do:

cut out the train and made a new image of it.
reduced the size to fit the mars image
pasted it into the mars image
touched things up a bit to make it look more 'real'
added the smoke on a blank raster layer
cloned an extra car onto the train for better depth
