Mitchell B-25

Here's a little something to play with. I've been experimenting with developing a watercolor technique and put it on this picture of a B-25 bomber from WWII. Any comments/ideas would be welcomed.

Whatever you do with it, have fun.

Re: Mitchell B-25

Nice work everyone. Had a problem with the people in the shot, so removed them. <Smile>

Played a bit with this image. Tried several DAP AOPs and even gave it a spin in FotoSketcher. The three best attempts are: DAP Colorful AOP, DAP Gruppe_wc AOP & FotoSketcher watercolour.

Hope you like them. Thanks for looking. And thank you, Skip for the image to play with.

Re: Mitchell B-25

Very nice Grant, really like the soft color look of your rendition

Gene, looks like you not only had a problem with the people, but the car, ice chest, and the water tower. Must have taken some time? Good move though, it gives the picture a much cleaner look. I think the DAP Colorful would be my favorite.

Re: Mitchell B-25

Here's another watercolor look. I ran the picture through DAP using the Cezanne AOP, then back to Photoshop and applied a watercolor action called HydrO. Then using part of a workflow that Gene (ghealy) posted on the DAP forum, I duplicated the picture and embossed it with a hardlight blend mode. Then did an edges effect in Topaz Simplify for a mild sketch effect. Plus Hue/Saturation, levels, etc. Thanks Gene for the workflow, it puts a nice finishing touch to the picture.

Re: Mitchell B-25

Nice one, OlBaldy.

Skip. Not as much time as you might think. Using point to point selection tool, select area you want to clone over, this make certain you only clone over the undesirable stuff. You needn't be as careful or as accurate as you would in a photo, because the painting process isn't that accurate.

Would I recognize you under another name on the DAP forums?

RE: embossed layer, sometimes making a negative image (in PSP or invert in PS) may give better texture results. Though often, I will to a quick select and invert of certain areas of the embossed image to get that better results.

Nice Cezanne.

Re: Mitchell B-25

Gene - Thanks for the tweak on your work flow about the embossed layer.

As for the DAP forums, same name, but I haven't participated since the forums came back up, just lurking. Haven't been using DAP that much lately. However, with the way this effect turned out that could change as I go back and try other AOPs.
