So you like trucks...

Here is an old International Harvester truck for your painting pleasure. I wish I'd been able to back up a bit further and face the truck into the picture. On the other hand, the building on the other side of the truck was not the greatest. Nevertheless, enjoy.

Janet

Re: So you like trucks...

What a great truck, Janet! Thanks for the play!

Photoshop and History Brush. I used a bristle style brush. Before setting the history state, I used surface blur to muck up the pixels (on a dupe of the background) also added a little dry brush filter.

After painting with history, I duped the history layer, desaturated the dupe and set for soft light. Merge stamped history and desat layers, added HSB adjustment.

Saved out the desaturated layer as a texture map (copy/past all into a new Photoshop document then save as a PSD file to the desktop). Used the texture map on the stampped layer (Texturizer>Load Texture>map.psd) and set the scale for 100% and tweaked the brightness. This applied the 3D look to the brush strokes.

Re: So you like trucks...

Well, this is my first post. I jumped into this without seeing it was the photo-based art forum (it was on the recent threads).

I originally wanted to show the truck zooming by the house, so I created a motion blur. I created a radial blur on the tires. I added a driver.

Right before I went to post, I noticed what forum I was in, so I used the angled strokes filter.

Nothing too fancy...

Nothing too fancy...? Maybe not, but well done, TM! Like the way you added the driver! :-) Welcome to RTP and have fun!

Re: So you like trucks...

I often get flamed for some of my offbeat expressions. But in this case, I'm going to just say, "COOL BEANS, folks. Great interpretations Swampy and TM."

And a hearty welcome to you TM (not to be confused by Trimoon). You did a fine job.

Janet

Oltenius and Gerry, both of you have such different approaches. Just goes to show how versatile art is. I like both of them. Keep up the good work.
