Photomaster,
Very nice, I like it. Would you explain your technique? Thank you. I also noticed the (Danny's Pretty Good Art Gallery) sign.

Re: Creative interpretations: Chew-n-Butts store

Thanks everyone. Glad you liked the outcome. As requested by Ray (glad you noticed the sign) and Palms, here is a description of the technique used here and on the "return of the cuties" puppy:

This post basically reiterates the content of this post by Steve Lequier. The referenced brushes are available there.

TM Brushes Used:
Layer 2. TM Impressionist Brush No5
Layer 3. TM Brush Spatter 15A (Set Layer Blending Mode to Hard Light)
Layer 4. TM Detail Brush (Blending Mode is Normal)
NOTE: Place these brushes in the Presets/Tools folder of the Photoshop directory in the Program Files folder. To use these brushes you must load them into the Tool Presets menu.

SEE ATTACHED IMAGES:
Step 1. Open the image. Adjust size, color (hue and saturation), etc. (You cannot make any of these adjustments after you start using the art history brush.) Save the image as a tif file. (Under Layer Compression select Discard Layers and save a copy.) Close the image.

Step 2. Re-open the image. Select the Art History brush on the TOOL MENU. Create a new layer and fill the layer with white.

Step 3. Create another new layer, (blending mode Normal.) Paint with the “TM Impressionist Brush” to fill this layer with the image. Works best with a graphics tablet. Use pressure to increase the size or ease up on the pen to decrease the size of the brush tip.

Step 4. Create a new layer and set the blending mode to Hard Light. Use Trimoon’s “Art History Brush Spatter 15A” to paint the entire layer. Increase or decrease the size of the brush as needed. Get as much detail with this large brush as you can. Use a larger brush tip for the background and a smaller tip for the subject itself. Fill the layer with the image.

Step 5. Create another new layer. Set Blending mode to Normal. Use the “TM Detail Brush” for the finest of the detail on the main subject. Adjust the size between one and six pixels. Use this brush on other areas of the image where you want to bring out detail.

Step 6. Select the top most layer and Stamp Visible (ctrl-alt-shift-E) to merge the layers. You can now sharpen and apply a texture and call the painting finished - or you can get really creative. This is where I like to start using Dodge and Burn, selective cloning, smudging, color adjustments and free hand brush work to give the image that extra zip. Example Here.

Try this method and I guarantee you will be delighted with the results and will want to use it again and again. Try experimenting with different brush setting and be sure to save any tool presets that you find useful. Hope this keeps you busy for a few hours.

Thanks to Trimoon (Steve Lequier) for the great brushes and this wonderful technique.

Used Swampy's texture map thingy, then took it several stages further.
Thanks for the ideas Swampy.

Peter
