Creative interpretations: Basketball jumpshot

Kind of a "busy" image, but something different to work on.

Have fun.

All done in GIMP and all done using only filters and ...

...layer properties. Yes it's a Neimanesque rendering (everytime I see sports, I think Leroy Neiman). If you click here, you will see the complete rendering. Attached is a slightly lower quality crop.

Hey thanks man!

You had a great idea to lighten up the BG a bit. It's such a busy photo that lightening it helps to bring out the main focus of the image. Nice.

Re: Creative interpretations: Basketball jumpshot

Some great work here.
Kiska, I have to single yours out - you really slam-dunked it.
Mine is a CS2-Painter-CS2 effort. I thought the background was busy, too, so I got rid of it.
Looking at it now I kinda wish I'd kept the ref. Oh, well.

Haven't done a sports shot in a while- may work on it a bit more when I have time. Thanks Danny!
