a nice image from pdphoto.org
no particular challenge intended here. just a nice image to have some fun with.
i added my normal 'tag' on the image file name just to distinguish it from the original file on my harddrive. just eliminate the -1-k-1 from the file name and you have the original file name.
Craig, nice picture. It looks like it should be a still life in the impressionist style. :-)
I went about this in a different way.
1. Duplicate the layer, add a curves AL and lightened up the whole thing. Merged down.
2. Ran Filter->Brush Strokes->Ink Outlines. I ran this probably three time or until it was one step beyond "good" and faded the last application back until I liked it.
3. Sponge Filter to blotto it up a little.
Add frame and signature...done.
It's so much fun to experiment with new techniques and I'm finding that some of the more subtile filters, when run more than once or twice, give some nice effects.
Thanks for the play. :-)
Great picture Craig, and three great versions already.
Steve - Loads of detail, great woodblock effect.
Patricia - Loved the border!
Swampy - I love the impressionists. You can almost feel the sunshine.
I tried for an oil painting here.
Gertrudis - small oil brush. Then into -
Deep Paint - bump and shine turned on. Lighting adjusted in deep paint.
Regards to all,
Hey!...that's a nice one! Really like those brush strokes.
Is my mind going, or am I not remembering what SA is?
For Mitch and Patriciakay: thanks.
Mitch, it does take on a bit of woodblock style. Wasn't my objective, but I'll take what I can get. 8-)
