Re: Gentlemen, start your engines! - Be Creative

nice picture, dee dee. and i like your rendition of it, too.

this started with a filter forge filter, sketch and color by andrew b. i took it back into psp and did some selections and motion blurs and moves to get the motion and then some dodge and burn and blends to finish up.

[QUOTE=Peter S]With that car you could catch up with anyone.

One from me as well. Trying to do with less detail, let your brains fill in the gaps.

Problem with that is Peter my Brain is full of gaps

Re: Gentlemen, start your engines! - Be Creative

Ikrol: Very nice. "Divided the gray out".... Could probably do much the same thing in PS by using a Color Range Selection on the neutral grays. Haven't tried it, but your techique does leave a nice black and white sketch.
Craig: Nice motion effect on the car. We've all seen motion applied to a photo, but applying it to a sketched version is kinda cool!
Palms: I really need to dig into the brushs palette and learn more about the controls. I did find a couple that appeal to me and my Preset list is growing. :-)

Re: Gentlemen, start your engines! - Be Creative

But I like Divide out Swampy. lol

Thanks all for the comments. Cool stuff from all of your versions; especially like the motion blur that you did Craig; wish I thought of that.

I just wish that PS would give us three layer properties that GIMP has; Divide, Value, and Subtract (not the same as Difference which GIMP gives that property too). I've found work arounds for Divide (dup, invert color Dodge set to 50% opacity), but not Subtract or Value. For the PS gurus, is there a way to just express the Value properties of a layer onto the stack? Luminosity just doesn't cut it for me for the most part (does have some benifits, but Value is uber more useful to me).

In PS you can select the luminosity for the light values (OPTION+COMMAND+~). Make the same selection and inverse for the shadows. When I need midtones, I use the Color Range and select the midtones. I guess you could also use Color Range to select the highlights and shadows, but it still all requires 3 selections. I don't know of a way to set value properties for a given layer.

Re: Gentlemen, start your engines! - Be Creative

thanks, dee dee, lk

i selected the car out and put it on a new layer, motion blurred it and copied that twice more to separate layers, then moved each of those two a bit to the left and then did a low opacity erase on bits and pieces to allow the other parts to show through.

Very effective, Craig. I would never have thought to make those copies and nudge them over a couple pixels. Clever!

Re: Gentlemen, start your engines! - Be Creative

That's what I figured Swampy; lots of work when all I have to do in GIMP is change the layer property to Value. lol

Maybe someone will come up with a plugin that does this transparently to the stupid end user behind my computer monitor. In the meantime, I will use both CS2 and GIMP (still a master of none; ).
