Re: Creative Interpretations - Italian Masks 2

I gave the smudge look a try...
I wanted to add some of the texture back in afterward, so I put a displace with the original greyscale on top, lowered opacity and to soft light.

Re: Creative Interpretations - Italian Masks 2

thank you!

I had avoided smudging because of the ridiculous processing time.
Then I found Linda's smudge brush in the smudging resources thread.

Very nice, and fast.

KPT Gel with the original image used as texture for the brushes.

Corel KPT Collection can be had for rather cheap on eBay at the moment if anyone is interested.

Re: Creative Interpretations - Italian Masks 2

Craig, actually I did it because I initially wondered whether I could do an interpretation as good and spectacular as yours. Glad you like it.

Glad you like it as well Swampy. Very interesting image to work with.

Re: Creative Interpretations - Italian Masks 2

thanks, secretagents! now, i cant quite give you 'an interpretation as good and spectacular as yours' on this. i mean, that would ruin my self-centered, egotistical, know-best, arrogant and quite humble reputation... but i do like it
