Creative Interpretations - Women at Work

Well, this confirms my theory that women work, while the men just stand around. LOL

Enjoy.

Re: Creative Interpretations - Women at Work

I took a slightly different approach in doing the sketching details for this. I used Poster Edges then desaturated and ran heavy levels adjustment, dropping out a lot of the whites and light midtones. Also ran a Ano. Diffusion on it. Set this layer to Overlay blend mode above a history brush painted layer.

For the history brush I used a heavy textured dark chalk brush.

I added a White layer above everything and set a Styles > Pattern overlay > Screen Pattern with low scaling for the texture. Set this to Soft Light Blend mode. I like the way it seems the make the "paint" just color the top of the "paper texture".

Still plowing my way through GIMP 2.4

Do like the Mosaic filter preview (didn't have one with the previous version of GIMP). Used this instead of GIMPressionist Ballpark preset (modified) before the GIMPressionist Fury preset step (again modified). So far, other then trying to find where the various filters and such are located, I do like what I see, but this one took way too long to do (due to orientation issues).

Here's the complete rendering (click and expand); attached is a crop.
