Re: Creative Interpretations: Moroccan Dorrway

Great catch, Hawkeye! You really captured the texture of the walls in your photo. Marvelous!

Experimenting with some new PST brushes.

Dorrway???
Super Swampy, I really like your color choice. Looks like a magazine cover.

Re: Creative Interpretations: Moroccan Dorrway

Geez, I thought this "Dorrway" was going to be easy...
It took forever and I still ain't happy with how it turned out. I saw something totally different in my minds eye, so am posting out of frustration.... No Mo "Dorrs" for me!!


Thanks for the suggestion Craig.. tis somewhat De-Noised now..

Glad to know that someone else has this problem. You see the image and know exactly what you will do to it, and what look you want. Then 3 hours later you have 14 images none of which look worth posting.

However, your efforts paid off. I think you ended up with a very nice interpretation. Like it.
