All I did was erase what didn't look like a train. Pasted as a floating layer over image, then touched up by erasing as much as possible. Flattened image, and resized.

Re: PHOTO ART: Mini-challenge #140 – Steam Engine

Here is my workflow:

1. Duplicate background layer.
2. On dupe layer: Filter>Artistic>Dry Brush - 4/2/1
H&S +30% saturation.
3. Duplicate Background Layer, name it Lines, put at the top of layer stack
Filter>Blur>Smart Blur R-100, T-97.5, Quality-High, Edge Only
4. Invert this image, then apply Filter>Diffuse>Anisotropic
5. On this layer, remove any unwanted lines with a hard-edged white brush.
6. On the Lines Layer add a mask. On this mask paint with a black water
color brush starting at 20% opacity and build up density. Vary brush tip
and brush size.
7. When you are satisfied with the result, Merge Visible.
8. With a smudge brush ( I used a Trimoon smudge Brush) at 50-70 opacity
go over the watercolor brush strokes at the edge of canvas to get the
capillary action effect.
9. Filter>Texturizer>Sandstone Texture

Re: PHOTO ART: Mini-challenge #140 – Steam Engine

You nailed it. That's what I was thinking about too. The subject may not have been the best for what I did, but I was counting on people not looking too close, especially people who knows trains. I had to take liberties by removing some parts. The brace in front of the boiler didn't come out as well as it should have. It might have worked better with it positioned over a darker section of the sky. Still, it was fun taking part.

Another go at it. Simplified with big pixels, then with Amphisoft simplifier. Finished up using Impressionist.

Thanks for bringing this back, John. It's fun to revisit images from the distant past.

I'm still playing with Vitaly's WC tutorial.

Re: PHOTO ART: Mini-challenge #140 – Steam Engine

There have been some really nice images resurrected lately. I'm glad to see them since I was not a member of Retouch Pro when they were first introduced. I particularly like this thread because of all the information it contains.
