Re: Victorian san francisco house

Gunner, super photo. One of my favorite subjects is old houses.

I was going for a gouache/pallet knife look with lots of paint stroke texture. I did two layers of AHB. First with a broad brush to lay down groundwork the second with a more detailed brush. Added some bevel and emboss to these layers.

Restored some detail with the PST tool and also added bevel/emboss.

Stamp merged a layer and added a HighPass and sharpening. Hue/Sat adjustment and texture.

Wow. It is going to take me a month to decipher what you wrote so that I can even try it on something. Need a lot more practice. That's what it takes tho.

Re: Victorian san francisco house

very nice, swampy! i had to look up 'gouache' again. for some reason i keep forgetting what that is. at any rate, i do like that 'heavier' painted look.

Re: Victorian san francisco house

Thanks Gunner and Craig. I've been trying to nail this look down so I can do a tutorial, but a lot of it is brush selection. It doesn't work as well with a soft brush 'cause you need those edges to get the "slabs of paint" look. The look itself is applied using Photoshop Styles on the paint layer adding drop shadow and/or bevel & emboss. It also needs to be painted on lots of layers because if the edges of the paint strokes overlap too much you lose the "edges".

Re: Victorian san francisco house

sounds like similar problems to that of doing knife edge photo art.

Re: Victorian san francisco house

gunner, thank you, btw

and as to how you do it, the best i've seen here, or anywhere, for that matter, was done using a pre-made texture applied to a photo. it had all the depth and edges and ridges and so forth of a palette knife work built into the texture. not sure what the person did after that, though. it was quite impressive. and no, i dont remember the link
