Manju, wonderful as usual. You da man!!
Mine is actually based on an earlier technique that I learned from you, using Art History brush, motion blur, and Picasso's Last Word.

Hi Jaykita, I've been a fan of Manjula's since I first discovered him in another forum. I've bugged him occasionally for details, and he's always generous with his help.
It doesn't feel like copying because whenever we take steps from someone else's techniques, we invariably change them enough to make them our own.
Here's what I did on this pic.
Made several layers and cranked the hue/sat way up (you and LUV color);
took the top layer and splattered all over it with a big Art History watercolor brush, ran motion blur and then Picasso's Last Word;
on the next layer down, ran cutout, and then erased through the top layer to find the players. Then it was just a matter of playing w/ subsequent layers, finding lost areas that I wanted to bring back, playing w/ blending modes, etc.
Hope that makes sense.
P.S. The more I've thought about it, I believe these steps combine and borrow from at least 2 of Manjula's techniques.

Manju -- really isolates the action!
Raniday -- does the same, and the color swashes near the Laker's player seems to add tension and a feeling of action.

Mine used Chrome, crystallize, facet over a motion blur with enhanced Hue/Sat., plus some other work.

I put Manju in a league with Trimoon when it comes to inspiring me with exceptionally creative results. What he does with colors, textures and brush strokes just blows me away sometimes.

I really like the way you did your background, CJ.

Ditto on yours, too, raniday.

Hey Raniday, thanks to you, dear, i had grrrr8 fun with this one!!
Tried to do as raniday said in her last post. Upped sat on orig, motion blur. One more layer with cutout filter. Layermask on motionblur, scribbled diagonally on layer mask and applied chrome filter. Layer style - satin. Adjusted colors.
Thank you so much, R, for the instructions.
C.j. I really like what u did too. In fact all 3 of u were my inspiration on this one!
