PHOTO ART: Mini-challenge #142 – Sailing Ship

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

See below.

PHOTO ART: Mini-challenge #142 – Sailing Ship

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.

We haven't done anything nautical of late, so let's take this one for a spin(naker).

LEGAL VERBIAGE
S.Marcos 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.

Danny--Thanks for taking the time to find a challenge image.

Oscar--That's one of my favorite looks too. I think it suited this image.

Don--Your variation of the crosshatch worked very well. The colors you chose suit the effect.

I'm looking for a rougher style. This is my latest exploration--not widely tested.

Rough sketch 1

1. 2 duplicate copies of background. Turn the top one off (it’s used at the end and it’s convenient to have it already at the top).

We work on the middle layer for a while.

2. Image—Adjustments—Desaturate
3. Duplicate desaturated layer.
4. On the duplicate layer set the blending mode to Color Dodge. Run Filter—Blur—Gaussian Blur between 4-8.
5. Merge Down. Duplicate desaturated layer.
6. On upper desaturated layer, set the blending mode to multiply. Run Filter—Blur—Gaussian Blur with the same settings and used in step 4.
7. Merge Down. This is your base sketch layer.
8. Make 3 copies of the base sketch layer.
9. On the top duplicate, run Filter—Brush Strokes—Sumi. Reduce opacity to 50%.
10. On the middle duplicate, Run Filter—Brush Strokes—Dark Strokes. Set the blending mode to Pin Light.
11. On the lower duplicate, run Filter—Artistic—Fresco. Set the blending mode to Luminosity.
12. Turn on the color layer at the top. Set the blending mode to color.
13. Add a new pattern fill layer at the top. Set the blending mode to Soft Light and the opacity to 70%. This will add texture.

Update: after playing with this, it seems you will get better results if after step 12 you duplicate the upper layer and change the blending mode (multiply, color burn, overlay, experiment) at around 50%

Danny , very fantastic picture given for the work.
It is straight infront of me and I realised that how huge it is.
It is even in my reach to paint by hand.

But I got a rough pastel only. here it is .....

It is with Filter > Artistic > Rough pastel >
strength=6
strok-4
texture- canvas

An oil attempt.

Mixing things up a bit. Still using Paint Engine, Impressionist along with color/saturation adjustments, just, after the color/saturation adjustments, starting with Paint Engine first (Arctic Preset). I then do Detailed Colored Pencil. I add the PS Chrome on a separate layer set to Overlay then Open the whole Shabang in GIMP for texture bumpmapping (adding the canvas and such).

That is a very nice painting effect Ikroll. You do manage to find some nice photos to work from.

I used Danny's photobobbie action to get a painted effect.

Thanks Cathy.

I just wish I could play with the myriad of cool actions out there, but alas, I have PS 5.5 and can't run most of them. Very cool effect Cathy.

Anyway, I've been experimenting with various blends of Impressionist and Paint Engine. Just started a Degas Thread here (I know I'm not even close to Degas quality, but I had a lot of fun experimenting) where I posted a few renderings using a very similar (maybe a bit more mature) technique that I used for the ship. The technique I used is actually outlined on Fred Miranda's site which you can find a link if you click on the thread. Still have some tweaking to do. I'm also having to do a lot of cleaning/smudging with my tired point finger and mouse.
