Studio Artist

When I start these things I have no idea where they will end up. It is different though. Craig went one way and I drifted toward the other. A very nice starting photo.

Gee what lovely interpretations; all or them.

I like that craig, especially where you pulled the blue into the beak -very nice.

kiska: beautiful! Love the soft flow of colors; I tried Studio Artist and just couldn't get the hang of it. I had Studio artis 2; what version are you using?

Hey Cat, I tried Jeremy Suttons brushes on a dog the other day, I like that chalky background. Would you mind sharing the url for the tutorial; mine didn't look quite as nice as yours.

Pretty background Phil; is that PS?

Palms: thanks for the nice comments. I'm like Phil, sometimes I start in one direction and find myself somewhere else! lol

Background

Yes Nanis I made the background in PS. I agree there are a lot of very nice intrepretations of this lovely bird.

Thanks Nancy!, I have SA 3.0, they've just come out with 3.5. The interface is horrible, really a struggle, but the brushes (paint patches) are fantastic.

Thanks, Palms.
Nan, that's a tutorial on one of his Painter IX Simplified DVDs.

thanks nancy it was your idea

kiska,
quite the rainbow parrot there. nice

cat,
i like that effect/technique. in all honesty, i like the background more than the parrot

phil,
that's quite original. it has a sort of glassine or ice crystal look to it. very nice!

this one is not a smudge at all. in fact, it's just about the reverse. but it seemed inappropriate to start another thread on the same picture.

this was done using the eye candy demo plugin and a 'blend emboss' filter. there was also a gray fill layer with a burn blend. i just liked the colors and definition of it.

that's an interesting effect, margaret. almost looks like a silkscreen. what is the 'conte crayon'? not familiar with that.

Heh Craig. Conte crayon is similar to colored chalk and has been around a while. Some impressionist work was done with these. Photoshop has a filter - Filter-sketch-conte crayon. I liked the effect - a happy accident!
