Re: Creative Interpretations - Castle

Amica and Tom - thanks for the kind words.

Tom, there are two textures gong on there (one not very noticeable in the web-sized version). For the "brushstrokes" I use filter>sketch>bas relief (detail pretty high, smoothness pretty low) on a duplicate layer set to overlay (soft light works, too), opacity adjusted to taste but it doesn't take much.

There's also a subtle canvas texture - filter>texture>texturizer (in this case using a canvas texture by Steve LeQuier(Trimoon)) on a 50% gray layer set to overlay (or soft light), adjustments to taste.

Thanks again for the feedback.

Thanks for sharing a process I was unaware of. I have a lot to learn, but it is great fun.

Thanks again,
