Re: Creative Interpretations - The Soup Kitchen

Swampy,

I came across this article on Webware http://www.webware.com/8301-1_109-9814391-2.html?tag=bl

and I had to take a look at it myself.

In essence it is a free online service that converts raster/bitmap images to vector. Something Photoshop just doesn't handle very well...

This is the result of its work in JPG format. If you really want to be impressed download the EPS file from my site: get eps file

Mine was started in Painter then brought over to Photoshop for cropping, texture and a little paint with light.

Re: Creative Interpretations - The Soup Kitchen

Good info, Frank. I d'led your EPS and opened it in Illustrator. The linked service does a good job. I used Illustrator's Live Trace and got pretty much the same results after a little tweaking.

Re: Creative Interpretations - The Soup Kitchen

I wanted to try some new texturing techniques to increase the hand painted look with the AHB.

Finished Layer set up. Top down
4-AHB swashy ground work embossed layer-set to vivid light-66% opacity
3-Dupe of Painted History brush detail- desat & embossed-set to over lay
2-Painted History brush detail - normal
1-White.

1. first pushed some pixels around using a displacement map at 4x4 and the frosted glass texture.
2. Saved this as a PST pattern
3. Used a Bristle brush, pretty big and the AHB with impressionist turned ON and just laid down big swashy strokes of color.
4. Duped this layer of ground work, desat and ran emboss, set to overlay. Merged down- Set this layer to Vivid Light at 66% opacity.

5. Used the same brush on a layer below the grounding, but turned Impressionist OFF. I mostly restored soft detail in the pots, the woman and a few details here and there.
6. Duped of detail layer, desat, soft emboss. Set to Overlay

These are the basic steps and settings. The rest is the usual Stamp Merge, add borders, signature etc.

Hope this gives you some ideas.
