Re: Creative Interpretations - Umbrellas

I esp. like your interpretation, Mitch. Ingenius combo of Buzz and the Pencil Pixels action. I was so inspired by your method that I started down that path myself, then got carried away in a different direction.

It was very convenient having that perfectly "horizontal" horizon thereby simplifying the task of splicing in the clouds.

Thanks, Dee Dee, for posting another "good one."

Have you got the impressionist plugin. If you have, you could try that on a blank layer filled with 50% grey and blend mode set to overlay. Run impressionist, set brush presure to zero, then got to the "Paper" selection bit and play about with the settings etc. Then fade the opacity of that layer to suit your tastes. You could also mask out parts to get an even better effect. You could also try Xero's "Tekstya" plugin, (its a freebie), for simple textures.

Thanks Palms - Though I still regard myself as being in the beginners class.

Thanks Danny, I forgot to state that i now run any pics through Noise Ninja before I do anything to them. I think it makes a difference.

Re: Creative Interpretations - Umbrellas

Thought I'd try for a Pointelist effect this time.
Still working on the method.

Re: Creative Interpretations - Umbrellas

Very nice, Issy. The color adjustments you've made really add a lot to the graphic.

Re: Creative Interpretations - Umbrellas

I used Studio Artist cloners to get an impressionistic feel, then back to PS to adjust color and add some color washes. I added some texure to finish it off.

Cazubi, that has a very "Renoir" look. Very nice.
