PHOTO ART: Mini-challenge #141 – Soccer Anyone?

FIRST MINI-CHALLENGE -or- NEW TO PHOTO-ART?

PHOTO ART: Mini-challenge #141 – Soccer Anyone?

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 below the legal verbiage.

I'll be watching my kids get into soccer this Fall. I've already suffered a couple bruises practicing.

You might need to clone over the ref cluttering the background. BTW: For the benefit of the conspiracy theorists, "No, that's not me in poised to blow the whistle."

Hope you get a kick out of this one! (bad, bad, joke)

Ken E. retains the U.S. and international copyright © not only for the original image, but also for any photo-art versions of it. Unauthorized distribution or use of this image without permission are prohibited.

FIRST MINI-CHALLENGE -or- NEW TO PHOTO-ART?

New guidelines (subject to fine tuning):
* For each mini-challenge, post up to two (2) interpretations with attached images of your interpretation(s). ## SEE BELOW.

* For each include enough step-by-step detail to give someone a reasonable chance to recreate (or approximate) your results. That way all of us can learn from each other. Obviously it’s impossible to explain things like “individual brush strokes,” but do include such details as filters used, plugins used, blend mode detail, etc.

* Preferred format:
1)
2)
3)
etc.

on individual steps vs. writing it out in paragraphs. Step-by-step is easier for newbies to follow.

* If you used a technique or tutorial described elsewhere, include a link it if possible.

* You may include an additional post with a screenshot of your Layers Palette if that’s easier than writing out the details.

* If you used one or more Photoshop actions, you can .zip the action set and attach in an additional post or refer to the download site, with the applicable action set name.

Focus on quality, not quantity – and sharing your techniques. Unique and/or creative writeups will be preserved and noted in the "Best of Photo-art" forum.

In addition...
* Questions about technical matters or method clarification are welcome.

* Compliment works you truly admire. Don't feel compelled to comment on (or feel guilty about not commenting on) every single image.

## If you would like to do more interpretations, here’s how to do that:
- Post them at a public site, such as www.pbase.com and include as many links IN A SINGLE POST as you would like.
- If you create subsequent versions and want to include them, you can edit your own posts to add/change/delete links to outside galleries. It's not necessary to add additional posts to the thread for each link to a gallery site.

Okay, Danny, you flushed Leroy out. Pretty devious.

This is my Leroy Neiman look. He is the great action sports artist. My technique does not truly imitate his style, it's just inspired by it.
1. Convert to lab color mode
2. Select the lightness channel
3. Filter>render>difference clouds
4. Convert back to rgb
5. The image should be dark now, so duplicate once or twice and set blend to screen. Adjust opacity.
6. Difference clouds is random, so I run this several times and pick the best parts from each image using the history or clone brush.
7. Parts of the image that are very dark will come out white. So you can lighten them before running these steps, or afterward use the history brush set to soft light or overlay to bring back a little detail. Faces are the realy hard part. I'm still working on this technique.

Soccer Action

Bill:

When I saw this pic, I immediately thought of Leroy. Thanks for sharing this technique. The potential is enormous.

-------
Don:

Thx for the links. Always appreciated this guy's art.

-------
Vijay:

Yours just proves that creativity does not have to be complicated.

-------
I was experimenting again. When I do, I record the steps into actions because I have such a lousy memory.

The action used to render this version is available for download in the next post. It seems to work fairly well on images with a fair amount of detail -- not so good on portrait closeups.

The key (I think) is getting the right mix of lines on layers D, D1, E and E1. I used layer masks extensively to tune those up.

Action for previous post

This action was written using PS7. It uses the Diffuse > Anisotropic setting = it will probably get an error message in PS6.

If the error is "command not available," click CONTINUE. There just won't be any output in layer D.

PM me if you have problems with or questions on this action.

I guess I'm a girly-girl--I have no clue who Leroy Neiman is. If he's a sports type person, I never will either.

1. Replaced the background. (my first time ever for doing this--it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be)
2. Made 2 duplicates of the revised image.
3. Ran Noise--median on the lower copy.
4. Ran Sketch--photocopy on the upper one with fairly high detail and set to soft light.
5. Merged and boosted the saturation.
6. Created a hue/saturation adjustment layer and lowered saturation then painted the boys back in.

Original message from Photomauler
---------------------------------------------
Hey Vijayan, You seem to be an interesting character, may I ask what other forums you participate in, and why you took such a long layoff here posting as vijayan. If you don't mind, where did you study your english at? You have some interesting interpretations, can you lead me to some more of your work in the past? Thank you.

Hi Don,

Thank you for the message and nice comments.

1. I mainly participate in the main forums challenges like Restoration and Retouching and sometimes in the other two also. Iam very much interested to participate this forum and enjoy these challenges, but being a family man I will be bussy with my routine works .

2. I had my school level educations and did my digree in Fine Arts.
As a citizen in a third world country, I also learned English as a medium in the school levels but I was the one always experienced the " back bench sitting".So I use my English language only as a source of communication.
Iam an Indian residing at Trivandrum, it is the capital of Keralam ( Land of coconut trees ) is about 500 km long costal state at the south west tip of INDIA .

3.The links are there in the challengs mentioned in thr reply number-1.

Thank you Don...

and Don your submissions are very interesting..

chery it is a good work very much incorporated the atristict thoughts.

and Danny. ( original --- yours just proves that creavity does not have to be complicated ) Thank you for this great words , and I do belive in your observations. I find assistance from the Mac's built in programmes only. there also lot to learn and play. All depend up on your canvas , approach and your taste. So I think the descriptions should be only a link to the source and one can easily go to the source and find some thing to their own taste. One should not be a copy of others..
Allways a single touch will be nice and worthy..

Thank you Danny very very much...

---------

Another saved from the crypt.

I tend to come and go in spurts; while I still have some drive, I will work on these renderings. Retinex equalization, Impressionist and Sat/Color enhancements.
