Post Creative interpretations: Violin

I thought this was a compelling image... It should be the basis for some interesting interpretations.

Have fun!

Let's see...this started with some simplification in PSCS2. Then took it into Gertrudis Pro (this is just one of several versions) then went back to PS for embossing and texture.

Violin of course

Dear Steve, I'll answer your question. First of all, this picture it's mirrored, cauze the strings are backwards, the stronguest should be at last.

Another thing, this is a cheap Chinesse violin, and a Fiddle for Americans it's a good violin to play country music. A fiddle have a low angle bridge, and this one it's high angled, also, the Chinesse guys don't do fiddles, they work for the World Wide Market.

Also the fingerboard should be low angled.

I'm a luthier too.

Gracias mi amigo.

I was only trying to have a little joke with my question. But you did enlighten me regarding the image being printed backward.

I did know a man who was a fine fiddle pklayer and injured his left arm in an auto accident. He re-strung his fiddle backward and fingered with his right hand and bowed with his left.

He should buy a left handed fiddle, he'll broke the violin doing that, because, in it's interior, the fiddle have different bars for the strings, and the trebles are lower tension.

Tell him to log into www.internationalviolin.com or write to sales@internationalviolin.com they sell great left handed violins, and the sales guy it's a professional fiddle player, he could adjust the violin to turn it into a fiddle

Danny, thanks for having another challenge. You're right, this is a compelling image and I found it fun to work on. The attached was done in PS using the Impressionist PlugIn with your own djroil-24 style.
I presume we are all limited to only one submission. Is this correct?

This was done for the joy of working on this photo and not for the contest.

I "watered" the violin and added a few embellishments here and there.

Enjoy.

It is... limit 1 for the contest threads. Good catch and thanks for asking, Alan. I just forgot to note that at the top. (fixed now)

re: djroil24
For an accident, that's turned out to be a very handy style if I say so, myself. I'm honored you used it to create such a lovely piece.

Thanks for the comments all. I'm sure enjoying this thread. There are so many wonderful, creative, and well executed entries, that if it weren't random, I'd surely be hard pressed to choose one above another.

Craig, is that term used to mean "smokin' " as in top-notch, fast fiddlin'? Cool idea.

Janet

As per StudioJ's observations I was turning the violin around (doesn't look too good the other way).
So I played with the blending modes between the two versions and this little guy appeared in the middle.

..So then I touched "him" up a little.

Play based on Danny's djroil24 again. :)

Some other stuff too; selective cleaning and erasing as well. Enhanced the saturation and color at the end.

janet,

not quite sure what term you're referring to, but yes, the idea was that that song has a lot of very fast fiddle playing in it and things got a bit hot as a result, not to mention 'the devil' was playing also, which would tend to heat things up

Here's my feeble attempt using the primative art media oil brush in PSP 9. I think I could have painted faster with a real brush lol.

But you didn't have any painting supplies to buy nor any cleanup afterwards!

Seriously, this is quite good and I'm genuinely impressed. Is the PSP effect you mention a clone-type effect or did you more/or/less free-hand trace this?

Danny and Cassidy, thanks for the positive feedback. The art media tools in PSP 9 operate on a special layer above the background layer, and there are different kinds of media like oil, chalk, crayon, etc. Basically what happens is ever time you click on the mouse button, it clones the color from the background layer that you clicked on, and then you're stuck with that color for the rest of the stroke. Unlike Deep Paint where it keeps cloning more colors in the same stroke. Its really time consuming, but I guess if you put enough work into it, you could get some nice results.

that's only if you have 'trace' mode turned on...at least in psp 10. 9 may be different, though.

Of course this is not the violin you posted, but the subject it's CREATIVE INTERPRETATIONS: VIOLIN.

So I'm a Luthier too, I found very creative what you have done with that pic, so I want to share some creative violins

I where working with a laser cutting machine and the result it's attached.

Someone could doit in photoshop, of course, but this is a Real Violin with a Real Shield Laser graved on it.

Nice work studioj. Do you play in an orchestra, or are you just interested in instruments?

Craig, nice effect on that crayon version.

I build violins for Orchestras, I don't say that I "Play" the violin, because profs do that, I just "sound" the violin, so I know to do all what professionals do with a violin, just don't play the same music as they do.

I play with 2 guys in a Café, but nothing professional, also I play at church

Hi Marvin:

Welcome to RetouchPRO. Glad you found us. I like what you did on this one. Very painterly looking. I especially like how you did the background.

Keep 'em coming.

- - - - - - - -

Sylvia:

Welcome back to the photo-art forum. Don't stay along so long, next time. (Just now noticed your Trevor pic. Missed it earlier...)

I'd be especially interested in hearing how you got such a great watercolor look on this one. That's just terrific.

Hello,
Thanks for your nice comments on my version, Nancy and Danny.
As to the steps... boy, I was just playing around...
I started by really increasing the saturation, then I used steps by Redwater, adapted them and added a layer of Nik's pastel. That's about it...
Sylvia

CONGRATULATIONS to Jeff, whose name was pulled out of the hat (containing slips of paper with the names of all entrants) by my daughter.

Jeff... Send me a PM with your mailing address and we'll get that ball rolling.

Thanks to all who entered. There were some especially creative interpretations.

Do not count the stamp as my entry the big pic is my entrance picture!!!
CONGRATULATIONS to Legacy~Art, whose name ny daughter pulled out of the hat on the second pass.

Ell... Send me a PM with your mailing address, so I'm sure to have the right one.

Was playing with Image Analyser program and came across a filter called Statistical Image Enhancement. Plunked in a value of 2.0.

Cheers

Dry Brush

Just playing with my dry brush technique; experimenting with sharpness in the mix. Of course I did some Impressionist simplication too, but that was just for esthetics. Here's a link to a higher quality version

Also (with a lot of other things), here's a thread where I submited a portait example that I did yesterday using this techique; around a megabyte as a warning for those on dial-up.

ok, i knew i had seen this before. not only that, but it's EXACTLY the same post from danny as before. i think the forum has a glitch. this is the second time i've seen something odd like this in the last week or two.

here's the original thread: http://www.retouchpro.com/forums/photo-based-art/13009-creative-interpretations-violin.html same name and same post by danny.

craig

oh, and it's also the same posting date.

Good eyes, Craig. I didn't realize this had been (somehow) replicated.

I sliced/diced and merged the two threads.

thanks danny. i think i posted in the other errant thread as well. not sure if that one is still there or not. the title in that one did not match the submission. the title was something having to do with a boat, while the image was something completely different. maybe you already handled that one but if i see it again i'll point it out.
