Re: Creative Interpretations - Spanish Fishing Vil

I really like the one by alexmeta. I cropped, simplified to 256 colors, converted to postscript, brightened it up a bit and saved as raster.

Re: Creative Interpretations - Spanish Fishing Vil

See i knew you had a winner here Swampy what great images
well spotted i have been using cut out more, it works great when mixed with other filters ( although Alexmeta has done some great portrait work with it and Peter S has had more than a good dabble with it )
Frank I like the edges and will give your workflow a try out
Alcar interesting as said almost cubist
Dan excellent will look into your workflow as well
lkroll your hands may have been tied but it was worth it
Sweetlight the crop has made that into quite a dramatic piece
Alex two great ahb's hard to decide if i like one better than the other, no i think i like the both equal
Mining art nice I like the simplification

Here is another one from a tutorial Danny posted the link too some time ago but added texture and tweaked the colour around

Palms

Re: Creative Interpretations - Spanish Fishing Vil

LK, I know you love your filters (you and Craig), but, for what it's worth your version is one of the best true "paintings" I've seen from you! :-) You did a wonderful job of pushing pixels around so they look like pigment spreading on paper! :-)

Sweetlight, The crop is great and darkening up that land formation in the background really sets off the village.

Alex, Some of your waves in the first one look almost transluscent! That's terriffic. The color simplification in the second one is really good.

MiningArt, going vector then coming back? What program are you using? It sure gives an interesting result.

Palms, your second one is soft and lovely. It's a little more photorealistic than the first, but I like it.

You folks have really accepted the challenge and the results are amazing!

Swampy; MiningArt, going vector then coming back? What program are you using? It sure gives an interesting result.

I ran it through CR2V, now called Vector Eye, a raster to vector converter. It does a good job of merging detail and I made no other changes. A little texture would be nice maybe.

This one I did in Zoner Draw5. Enhanced the colors, reduced to 8bit 256 colors and applied a paint effect.

Re: Creative Interpretations - Spanish Fishing Vil

Ahhh. I could probably do the same thing taking it to Live Trace in Illustrator.

Re: Creative Interpretations - Spanish Fishing Vil

Great picture and even better results everyone.

2 good ones Palms. Is the technique from Danny an action or his other magic?

Alan your newer watercolor's are terrific.

Here's mine basically starting using "Tony's Wishy Washy Watercolor technique" found over in Innographics with some minor changes - all PS7 tho

Regards and Happy New Year
