Truck Lips

I see this truck each time I visit my daughter and it has always intrigued me. I hope you are as well

Re: Truck Lips

That's funny! A little Topaz post-processing?

There is a certain recent car model (I don't know what it is) but the metal over the headlights makes it look like it's frowning at you (ie, like it's challenging you to a race). I've seen them on the road.

Re: Truck Lips

Lyle, you brought out some nice colors, especially the purples.
BTW, do you do the circle technique by hand? auto generated? Is it one of the gimpy apps? Anyway, it's really cool. Fotosketcher does a circle-style outcome...but no way near anything like yours.

Re: Truck Lips

Great picture Veronica!! Couldn't decide which way to go. Settled on a rough watercolor.

Re: Truck Lips

Hi - Here is one from me. FlamingPear's Organice Edges on top of Mehdi's EdgeFX, and a little added saturation on the lips.

Re: Truck Lips

OB, I like the poster effect on yours, larger areas of pure color...nice, clean look. A strong finish for an obviously strong vehicle.

Skip...yeah, I was thinking about watercolor, too. Yours is spectacular. I've asked you before, but I'll ask again, what brush do you use?

Pat, the extra saturation on the lips is perfect! For the past few years I'd been calling it "truck lips" everytime I passed it, you did it up real swell. I like Flaming Pear, as well, pretty good stuff there.

Re: Truck Lips

Nice work Skip, I love the way the truck looks as a watercolor. Any chance you share your technique?! I'm new to the 'art' side of Photoshop but love what I see in the forums. I can see your pic framed and hanging up on a wall somewhere.
