Creative challenge 005: Digital Dog Painting

This thread was prompted by another discussion here.

So, let's play a little...

You'll probably have to fix the "green-eye" first!

The style you're trying to replicate:

Don't worry about detailed "how to" instructions/detail on this one. Just focus on the results.

On your mark, get set, go!

I've been following the "how can I do this" in the other part of this forum; and I agree with Danny that these pictures are digitally produced.

I'm glad this challenge was posted. It will be interesting to see the different techniques we all come up with.

Here is my first. More to follow, I'm sure.

Janet

P.S. Next time I think I'll do a cat. Evil snicker. hehehehe Meow.

Wow Danny

I'm just a bit slow, just realized you started this with my request in mind...very cool. I will give it a try tomorrow as I'm too tired to go at it tonight. Again, thanks and looking forward to seeing everyone's work.

Photoshop:
* Extract dog onto separate layer
* Create color panels on separate layers (picked colors kind of at random)
* Save, close

Open in Painter 8
* Clone and paint ##
* Sampled dogs brown color with eyedropper, then chose the opposite (complimentary) color on the color wheel and painted a sploch onto a new layer
* Save and close

Open in Photoshop
* Sampled the "complimentary" color with the Eyedropper tool to set the foreground color
* Created a Hue/Saturation adjustment layer above one of the color panel layers. Turned on the colorize option, which sets the Hue, Saturation, Lightness to the sampled color. (It's the cobolt-blue panel that goes across the bottom.)
* Merged adjustment layer with the layer below.
* Merged the color panel layers.
* Applied Unsharp mask to the merged background color layer
* Applied Unsharp mask to the dog layer
* Added a stroke frame

A different style (more "painted" than just Photoshopped) than Suzanne's, but this would be the general technique if she's creating her paintings based on Photoshop.

## Painter 8 brushes used:
* A couple from the Impasto group (set to clone) to create the individual color panel layers
* Smeary Camel, Bristle Brush for brush effects and Soft (for detail restoration) from the Cloners group
* Blender: Grainy Blender
* Charcoal: Charcoal - to add highlights/lowlights, which were blended in using Grainy Blender
