Re: Creative interpretations-Local Taxi

I was going for an "old time sketchy look." See layers palette for filters used and blend modes.

Cool picture, Barry. Thanks for the play.

Re: Creative interpretations-Local Taxi

Thanks for the play, Barry

Opened the original in Camera Raw for some color and tonal adjustments then in PS did a little Topaz Adjust tweaks. Saved as a PST.

Painted with a very spattery brush using about 4 layers. I did a little Angled Stroke filter on each layer. Used a line art layer set to Color Burn and reduced opacity. Used a low opacity detail brush to PST back in some minor details.

Re: Creative interpretations-Local Taxi

Great result from every one,
Palms, the enviro is safe, they have people going around with "pooper scoopers" collecting the "emissions" to use in the gardens.( definitely not 'emissions impossible')

Ammica, great work, I'm very very new to 'painting' photo's as Palms knows, so could you please explain to me in detail how you achieved that effect? (vivacity, redfield, color tweaks and paper)what software- plugins etc.?( i'm using cs3) I really would appreciate it.

Danny, love your sketch, thanks for including your layers stack, it helped a lot.

Swampy, great work as usual, i'm working with your terrific tut's.

Alex, nice result.

Regards,
Barry

Re: Creative interpretations-Local Taxi

Barry, thank you for your kind words...The main effect was done with a plugin called Topaz Vivacity Sharpen, settings tweaked until I liked it...redfield is a freebie plugin which embosses set to blending of soft lkight, i guess, color tweaks were done with selective color to warm up the image a little, finally I choose a colored paper (something orange) texture pattern to warm up the image a little more, but lowered the opacity to 75%...I use CS3 as well. Unfortunately I don't keep my PS files for the little plays, you know, just keep the web-version and through away the rest...Forgot to mention, I sampled a color from the foremost horse and used this on the frame (another plugin...I don't remember though where I got it from...it's called AAA Frames)

Hope that helps some....
