You guys did a great job on it!
Palms, you didn't use AHB on this one, did you? Just curious...
I used my tutorial 5A for this picture.

No ahb Sylvia but its close cousin the history brush and a sketch layer

Re: Virtual Ironing

That was well done, Palms. I hardly ever use the History Brush.

Me either, Sylvia. I just can't seem to control the dang thing. And many times my paintings look like they've had the Chrome filter applied which is one filter that I really don't care for the effect except in special circumstances.

I admire those who have mastered it (like Palms and Ro). :-)

Re: Virtual Ironing

Sylvia and Swampy Isnt it funny how we take to a specific tool I cannot master the pst like you two it just eludes me. the history brush i use quite a bit both for correcting any bits i miss in selecting and for painting etc
but do tell me when i read about you finding the ahb and the history brush hard I always tell you (vitually that is) "but it is easy" do you do the same for me about the pst ?

Yepper. LOL I think the trick to the PST is generating a good artistic image BEFORE creating the Pattern. Sometimes I create more than one pattern and paint different layers with them. If you don't run some filters, do some distortions etc. you would otherwise just be painting back the original photo and it would continue looking like a photo.

Also, brush set up is very important when doing the actual painting. Wet edges, texture, opacity jitter etc. really affects the way the "paint" interacts. I've started experimenting with brush settings and trying to get an impasto look. I'm making some progress and am excited about a few pieces that are starting to have the look of painting with a palette knife. Work in progress.

Some more pointers there for me to look into and try Swampy, I had come to the decision that you needed to find the right brushes (as you do with the ahb )

Re: Virtual Ironing

Hi All,

First time post. I joined a while ago but haven't been around. I really liked this image so I thought I would join in. There are some wonderful interpretations, and such variety. I used photoshop, a little lucis and a lot of painter.

Re: Virtual Ironing

Nice capture Janet, spent a lot of time in that Lil town.. Wifes sister lived there for twenty years..

I noticed that 10 out of 14 submissions of this building failed to straighten the image.

Hmmm, maybe time has changed things and little details like that no longer matter.. Maybe it is just me being a picayunish, cantankerous old fool.. but in the Old days... I regress... sorry
