Hope you all have fun with this. I have been SUCH a lurker here in the photo art forum. I want to learn this, so I figure since I have not contributed any works of art I could contribute a couple pics for us to play with together. I dont have painter, only PSCS. Have Fun and be prepared for the "How'd you do that"'s! lol

Well, I'm sure glad you jumped into the pool!

You definitely DO NOT need Painter. In fact until about six months ago, there were probably less than a two dozen (out of literally hundreds and hundreds photo-art uploads) Painter-rendered images. One can do a lot with Photoshop.

I'm experimenting with a plugin called LucisArt (www.LucisArt.com). One of the layers was rendered with the "Plaid 1" setting. See Layers Palette attachment for the layer-by-layer construction.

Thanks for sharing your pretty flower pic!

Hi lSTLITE and thanks for a lovely photo! Top result LA, love the texture.
Danny, interesting result, I just downloaded Lucis and had a quick browse through the viewing samples. I noticed that the Wyeth (sculpting) setting is just the same as the Adapt Equalization filter. Certainly interesting results with this Plugin's other settings though and lots of potential. You'd have to be sure you could use it for profit as I thought it a bit pricey.

This result was lightened using PR Brightness filter and then Paint Engine (an Impressionist setting). Then a PSP strokes frame plus my border frame which I bevelled and added a shadow.

Here is my attempt at the flower and it was not what i was expecting ? Had the idea to use a tutorial i had found (english tea can painting ) and then wondered what would happen with the palette knife filter put on, and hey presto (brush stroke and texturize also) luckily enough i was able to retrace my steps this time (usually i have long forgotten how i done things )

Here's mine... started out by smudging with painter brush (pointed stump, 0 resat) and hand coloring (resat ++) as well as using a no. of ( ) different blends in painter and ps, playing about with hue-sat as well as selective color adjs. Topped with ps-filter- watercolor layer.That was fun!! Thank you for the lovely photo.

Everyone is going the abstract route, eh? Very beautiful. I went far more abstract myself than usual, but my guiding principle of keeping detail in the main subject came charging back at the last minute. This is just a product of the usual sketching and coloring techniques with blending experiments.

I didn't go for the abstract as such. I've been working on "watercolor" (without much success I'm afraid). These purple coneflowers were great ones to practice the technique on.

My new mantra, "I will get better...I will...I will."

Happy painting all,

Janet
