Girl and a Duck

Here is a pic of my neice and a duck. I thought it was a bit different so I took it on as a photo-art project. I used the new PostworkShop on it. Have fun with it if you want to. I would love to see some others.

Re: Girl and a Duck

This one's all PostworkShop. It's a blend of etch and Manga dots.

Re: Girl and a Duck

Nice work Dak and Lyle. I really like the work PWS does, I'm very tempted to buy it but I'll have to ask the boss first.I used Lucis and smudging on mine. Thanks for the play.

Those look really good! My niece will get a kick out seeing them. Yes, PWS is going to take some time learning. I haven't tried out the Node feature yet, have you Lyle?

Re: Girl and a Duck

In a pastlife, I've used both Simulink and Labview, so I know the power of node programming Dak. Yes; I pretty much start out with layers then go to nodes to do some finesse work. Actually created a few custom (maybe Sophomoric; lol) styles too. Not hard to get the hang of it Dak; fun actually.

Re: Girl and a Duck

Fran & Peter: both nice renderings.

This one really pushed me outside my comfort zone. I don't normally do people if I can avoid it. <Smile> Played with this in DAP to mask out distracting background. It worked but then I had too much dead space. So while doing post processing in PSPv9 to add contrast & texture I also cropped it down

A larger version (1600x1200 - 646 KB) can be seen here:

Thanks for looking.

Re: Girl and a Duck

Gene, you should go outside your comfort zone more often. I like your version -- a lot!!
