Creative Interpretations - This old House

Thought this would be a good candidate for a pixel pushin'.

Did mine in Photoshop where I have been exploring new ways to push the pixels around before painting to achieve a more painted look and less of a photographic look when painting with the AHB or Pattern Stamp Tool.

Hi Swampy, not quite your "unique" look, but nice, very nice

Re: Creative Interpretations - This old House

Thank you, Amica. This one is probably overdone. I think we tend to do that when looking for new techniques. I'm discovering that every bit important as selecting a sutiable brush to paint with, preparing the image befor painting can make a ton of difference in the final result.

I am no longer happy with just setting a history brush or the PST to paint from the original photo because it usually comes out looking like...the original photo. LOL

An exercise in pointillism.

I used a secret to start things out. See if anyone can figure it out. lol

LK As a complete guess, I would go for the opposite to what it appears, and say you used - Xero - Supersmooth. (I know you like that one)

No and No. I used ASCIIGen to create an ASCII version and Dissolved it in as part of the pointillistic process. Had to do some other things too. Yes, I was bored again and when I get bored, I fiddle with alternative ideas.

Re: Creative Interpretations - This old House

One of my favorite things to do is manipulate photos to look like artwork, and I'm so glad I found this forum. I am not sure how this forum works, however. Where does one go to get the original that everyone is working with? At first I thought the first image Swampy posted was it, but it appears to have some manipulating to begin with. Is that the one? Also... can anyone post a photo for others to try their hand at. Sorry to be so ignorant. Thanks

The original actually already looks sketchy. This is purely accidental this one, did a high pass in hard light mode and then went to the filter gallery and the dry brush was already selected, eyes went wow
