Talking Sun In Eyes

Hi everyone. Here is another pic of my son to play with. Have fun! I did, as this was my first real painting I've done. I think I overdid it with the hair, lol.

Fixed!!

I knew there was something not right with the hair. It looked like he was wearing a hat or something. Anyway, it was too much hair on the left. Toned it down a bit.

Hi Fizz. Thanks for the picture to play with. I've been distracted not doing much photo art lately. I gave this a go with Painter8 digital water color. The CourseMop brush produced the background and the CourseDry everything else. This was done freehand sampling colors from the original after first tracing the key features with the 2B Pencil variant. The JustAddWater Blender helped smooth the rougher strokes. I finished with a light paper texture.

-Mark

Great picture to work with. Thanks!

I played with Paint Daubs among other things with this one. I don't really remember what I did as I got caught up running this frame action and trying a couple of compositional things that didn't pan out!

Finally!!

I have fiddled around with this photo on and off for about 4 days now. No matter what I did I didn't like the results and would start over. Eventually I came up with this.

Duplicated background.
Smart blur.
Posterize (10 levels I believe).
Duplicate layer.
On first posterized layer, adjusted color on the red channel.
On second poseterized layer, adjusted colors on blue channel.
Merge the 2 posterized layers.
Watercolor filter.
Select child and copy.
add a layer mask to the watercolor layer using gradient.
Paste child on new layer.

I used the following method to remove the harsh edge of the child's head against the empty part of the background.
Select child again by control>clicking on thumbnail in layer pallet.
Select>modify>contract (5px)
Select>feather (5px)
Select>invert
Delete
