Ivory carved.

Did enough wood, so I thought I would virtually carve some Ivory tusks; saves a lot of elephants that way.

Created this pattern using an actually Ivory tusk image.

Re: Creative Interpretations - Arched Bridge

nice one, lyle.

i'm probably going to do a lot of this one, i like the original so much. so, here's one that came up as a result of looking for something else. there's a lot of psp work here and it was an oddball blending that gave it this final look. the original work was in filter forge, a blend of two different filter effects.

edit: what the heck; here's another:

Re: Creative Interpretations - Arched Bridge

Looks like you can carve into things too Craig. Maybe next year I might check into the cheaper version of FF (I like using presets, not creating them).

Re: Creative Interpretations - Arched Bridge

lyle, yes, filter forge has a built in height function that also comes with hdri lighting environments. these two combined can produce some very nice 'carved', emboss and other raised or sunken effects.

and with your passion for plugins (like mine), i think you'd love filter forge

Re: Creative Interpretations - Arched Bridge

Craig and Lyle you guys are an inspiration.. I had to give it a go also.
Emboss layer, a couple actions and a few blending modes later
