Re: Creative Interpretations - This old House

Allieok...Welcome aboard. Have fun and don't be shy.

Cass... WOW is right. Great pixel pushing in just a couple clicks! I love the dry brush. I think of all the "Art" filters in Photoshop, it is my favorite.

I've been playing with the >Distort>Displace filter along with texture mapping. I have another idea that I want to play with today that involves trying a sketch filter then taking that to Illustrator to trace then bring it back to PS for colorizing etc.

Re: Creative Interpretations - This old House

"This ole house once knew my children
This ole house once knew my wife
This ole house was home and comfort
As they fought the storms of life
This old house once rang with laughter
This old house heard many shouts
Now it trembles in the darkness
When the lightnin' walks about."

"This Old House" Stewart Hamblin

Re: Creative Interpretations - This old House

Steve and Palms are singing off the same song sheet! :-) It's a good song too, but kinda sad for me.

My family home was known locally as "The Big House". With eight kids and all their friends, there was always activity. Our small town didn't even have a movie theater when we were growing up, so all the kids congregated at our house to play touch football in the yard, swim, water ski, jump on the trampoline, shoot pool, have a musical jam session, watch late night "Shock Theatre" or just hang out. My Dad always took out an ad in the high school year book..."Congratulations to the class of (fill in the blank)... Compliments The Dressel Big House Youth Center".

The house was sold and torn down by the new owners. I can't tell you the number of people all over this county who told me how sad they were to see it go. It was a HUGE house. Seven bedrooms, 8 baths. I was glad that the new owners donated a lot of the usable cabinets, fixtures, appliances, windows, etc. to the local Habitat For Humanity so it lives on somewhere.

Alan, Nice one.
