1957 Chevy

Taken back in 2006 at the Shelburne Museum in Shelburne Vermont.

Used art history brushes in PS CS4. Then added some texture in PSPv9. (Haven't learned how to do it in PS CS4 just yet.)

Hope you like. And I look forward to your versions.

To use textures in PS CS4 or CS5 check out Palms #10 on this page:

http://www.retouchpro.com/forums/pho...tml#post281685

I used photoshop to tweak the color and then used Palms method for overlaying a texture, used a texture from that page that v posted in Comment #16. Then I used Corel Painter 11.

Thanks for the play Gene.

Re: 1957 Chevy

Gene, my preferred method is to save textures as *.psd's and open them as a smart object, so when scaling them you don't suffer quality loss. For PBA (Photos-based-Art) on RP you can load them as a new doc (longest side 1024 px) select all, define pattern and have it ready for an adjustment layer...

Re: 1957 Chevy

A classic car to say the least - love it. The first is a pastel pencil effect I've been playing with, but the second one is a departure from my norm. I took the texture pattern that Amica posted in the Near Cape St Mary's Newfoundland thread, resized it, copied/pasted it into the 57 Chevy pic, changed the blend mode to Luminosity and slightly reduced the opacity. In honor of a person who does some truly unique renditions here, I'm calling it my "Lyle" effect. Hope you like it Ikroll

Re: 1957 Chevy

@Gunner: Interesting use of texture. Thanks for the additional info on using textures.

@Amica: Appreciate the info re: adding textures. In your statement "For PBA (Photos-based-Art) on RP you can load them as a new doc (longest side 1024 px) select all, define pattern and have it ready for an adjustment layer...", what is 'RP'?

@Boneappetit: Nice one.

@Lyle: Can always expect the unexpected from you. <Grin>

@Skip: Not too sure of your new "Lyle" effect, but I certainly love the pastel pencil rendering. Thanks for playing

Re: 1957 Chevy

Really enjoyed them all. I guess the "Lyle Effect" is really a lesson in abstraction-no?

Re: 1957 Chevy

Gunner - I've always been impressed with the varied ways that Lyle (aka Ikroll) manipulates photos to come up with some great, yes I would say, abstract results. Abstracts are not my "cup of tea" as Palms might say. I kind of hit on this by accident.
