Creative Interpretations - Camouflage

Thought this was a great picture of Mom and the kids. Isn't mother nature's camouflage magnificent?

My version was complete reversal of everything I've ever painted. I duped the background then used the eraser with a grunge brush to erase through to a similar tawny gold filled layer. I put some line art on top set to Color Burn mode. Erase to paint? Am I getting desperate? LOL

Re: Creative Interpretations - Camouflage

Oh my these are so addicting. Just like potato chips, you can't stop with just one! Another good one Swampy! I never thought of erasing to paint, how clever. And Peter, wow! love the embossed look to yours!

This is not what I sat down to do, but I'm sure you all know how that goes

Gave it a go.

Thanks for the play Dee Dee. Yes; my concocted fake smudge technique (and some AAA Enhancements).

Re: Creative Interpretations - Camouflage

Swampy you are just multi-talented not desperate!
Peter I think I copied you some.. (only because I like what you did)
Jordan A nice planned out portraiture of the nice Kitty's I am sure.
Lyle you are quite the "Fakir" with all those fake techniques that work so well.. Looks good guy!

I tried to do a relief tile sort of thingy..

Re: Creative Interpretations - Camouflage

Thanks OB; don't know if you've tried it yet, but there is a cool bumpmap filter from Redfield that does a pretty good job at relief enhancements. It's free too.

Re: Creative Interpretations - Camouflage

Palms, love the first one. Looks like it was painted on silk and has an Oriental feel.
