I've been working with the Pencil Pixel actions a little in the past few weeks and and these 2 I like a lot.

First I used Buzz Simplifier 1 at a relatively low setting and then I applied the Soft watercolor action to the first image.

Itso Neimen Acion was used on the second after the same Buzzing
Hi Bob!

Thanks for playing. Love the watercolor wash look-really looks like it was hand painted! Nice edges and texture as well.

Nice style on the second one too. It look like it was sponge painted.
Both are how photo-art paintings should look, like you aren't sure it was generated from a photograph, yet it still looks like the subject matter.

Good job!

Palms,

Beautiful!
Great job-Love the background!

It looks soft and furry like a stuffed animal.
I'd actually prefer to touch that than the real thing...

Thanks for playing!

Re: Mike Warren challenge at DPReview: Eagle

Thanks Mike
It's always a pleasure to be in one of your challenges.

The watercolor has a look that I've been trying to get for quite a while now - and I'm really happy with it. I think I'll be trying it on several different subjects to see if it works as well.

Regards

Re: Mike Warren challenge at DPReview: Eagle

Everyone is setting the bar really high on this challenge. What wonderful entries, both here and at Mike Warren's pbase site.

This was really fun to work on and be creative. I used a couple of pictures I took (there were no copyright restrictions ) Thank you for giving us this challenge.

Nice job Janet!
Great shot of the flying Eagle and background.
Like your composition and technique-looks like a painting on canvas board.
This would make a nice book cover about this great Eagle.
He is shown reminiscing on his younger days when he used to fly all around...

Thanks for playing!
