Creative Interpretations - The Soup Kitchen

It's not the Soup Nazi, but it could still be fun to paint.

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

Re: Creative Interpretations - The Soup Kitchen

Another nice one Swampy
I thought I'd get this one going. Too many steps to recall, also I'm still playing about with the way I've done this.

Re: Creative Interpretations - The Soup Kitchen

Peter, try this.
Duplicate your original photo desaturate it. Put it at the top of the stack (over your above version) set the blend mode to softlight and watch the shadows pop. Adjust levels or opacity of the b/w to suit your taste.

Re: Creative Interpretations - The Soup Kitchen

Thanks Swampy, tried it, nice, certainly increases the contrast.
You can get a similar effect with a black layer set to soft light as well, though it is more global, whereas your idea is governed by the picture to a large extent.

Re: Creative Interpretations - The Soup Kitchen

I've used both black and white layers at different times and you're right, black really increases the contrast. In addition to opacity and Levels, you can dodge and burn on that b/w layer for more or less affect. I've done some stuff like run Buzz on that layer or different textures. Lots to play with once you know it's there to work with.

Supersmooth, Grain Extract Overlay and a few other GIMPy things.

Re: Creative Interpretations - The Soup Kitchen

i wanted to give this sort of an old world look, so i borrowed a filter forge filter from one of the resident geniuses, crapadilla. this is his 'wormcraft' filter, very slightly modified to allow more opacity of the original image. the original filter simulates a worm-eaten, carved piece of wood.

Re: Creative Interpretations - The Soup Kitchen

Looking at the weather at this place, I can see why this would be a thriving business.
