Creative Interpretations - Italian Masks

Hope you enjoy working on this one. Lots of possibilities.

Mine was done in Photoshop using the Pattern Stamp Tool. Lots of HSB on the final stamped merged layer.

Re: Creative Interpretations - Italian Masks

Thanks, Palms :-)

I thought I would give the AHB a whirl. I didn't go for detail as much as just laying down color. I used a sketch set to Color Burn. Did a stamp merge then selected lumonosity on the merged layer and placed the resulting selectioin above the merged layer and set the blend mode to Color Dodge. I like the way that setting pulled back on the highlight areas and really increased the contrasts of dark and light areas. This is especially noticable in the woman on the right's red clothing.

Re: Creative Interpretations - Italian Masks

After some prep work including an adaptive equalization layer, the original layer, a black and white conversion layer, and a bunch of layer styles and combinations... I used this Tutorial that has been discussed here recently, followed by Buzz (spreading the black and Simplifier three) on a copied layer and masked out what I didn't want to show..

Could I repeat it?? Might come close.. but, Probably NOT.. but it was fun!!
