PHOTO ART: Mini-challenge #144 – Jose

Guidelines? Give 'em a rest!

Since I'm going on vacation and won't be back for a week, let's give providing the detailed steps a vacation, too. As a reward for so many fine writeups so far the how-to detail will be optional for this mini-challenge.

Still, limit your submissions to no more than two (2).

Here’s another “mini-challenge” to play with in the Photo-based Art category until the next major challenge is posted here.

Looks like a great opportunity to try out your best sketch or oil-painting techniques.

Here's my sketch attempt. Can't wait to see some of those great smudger's work on this one...it's going to be great! My smudging looks more like a 4 year olds fingerpainting, so I won't even attempt it

Wouldn't you know it. I just got through reading the newest rules and regs (post with detailed instructions), and Danny lets us off this time! Oh well...here's the detailed instructions...

1 - Converted the original to a black and white image with the channel mixer and curves. The end result looked like this:
http://www.pbase.com/image/19192586
2 - Then did a standard sketch (dupe, invert, color dodge mode, g blur) to just bring out the lines slightly. I then opened a new layer and did a "stamp visible" (ctrl+shift+alt+E). I'll call this layer "lines".
3 - Duped the original, b+w version and ran smart blur on it to simplify it, then ran the standard sketch method on this layer also. Painted back a bit more tones with the brush on this layer.
4 - Placed the "lines" layer on top of this smart blur/sketch and set the blending mode to "multiply".
5 - Used a channel mixer layer (0 red, 40 green, 60 blue) to get a b+w sketch version.
6 - Used a color balance layer to give it a bit of color.
7 - Used a curves layer to give it a bit more contrast and depth to the midtones.
8 - Added a bit of film grain to give depth to the shadows.
9 - Duped this layer, ran gaussian blur on it, then set the blend mode to "soft light" and lowered the opacity just a bit.
10 - Another curves layer to lighten the shadows and deepen the midtones slightly.

Have a great vacation, Danny!

Pam

Another swipe at the painterly-look. I kinda like these "relaxed" rules!

This man has great character in his face. This was fun to work with.

My thanks to whoever I borrowed the start from and my apologies for not giving you credit. This comes from a layers palette shot that I printed and can't find anymore. I forgot to staple the directions to the palette shot when I printed it, so who knows what it was really supposed to look like. I put the original back on top to give just a hint of color when I finished.

Update 7/20/03 I found the directions that went with the palette shot I used. I wasn't even close. The process I actually used can be found in the Try-It section under Soft Sketch http://www.retouchpro.com/forums/sho...&threadid=6505

I applied my simplifier, poster7 from Paint Engine, then applied PSP8's colored edges, using black.

Then I cut the dude out and pasted him on a black background, softened and applied an asphault texture, as it seemed to fit the face.
