Well besides LucisArt all the rest are either PS native or freebies, so check em out if you wish, sorry I can't find the links but you could do a Google for them.

Re: An old car to play with

Frank, thanks for the play.

There are a lot of great ones here, but Alan, yours floored me. I love the way you boil things down to their essence. How, please, do you do this stuff?

Mine's a PainterX/CS2 job.

Re: An old car to play with

I love the feeling of action in yours Craig; very realistic, imho.

For mine, I used little ink pot for the sketch effect and then played with layer blends until I ended up with this. Used eye candy for the frame.

Re: An old car to play with

DC, many thanks for your kind comment. You asked how I did my car image. I used the Art History Brush on a light blue background. The AHB strokes seem to take on a nice coloration on a background like this. Then a sketch was placed over it and painted on using a black mask. I use this as a touch up...and very sparingly to preserve the brush texture. All in all, this is a simple technique and usually accomplished in about thirty minutes.
Alan
