Re: Spartans

Fran, nice work as always.

Lyle, I can never predict what you'll come up with, but it's always interesting. Not keen on the sky, but I'm not keen on the sky in my sketch version either.

The other 2 are straight Photosketcher at some or other setting.

Re: Spartans

These are such commanding figures...thanks so much for sharing them, Crapaud.

As I saw them they were hard edged figures on a soft ground so I used India Ink filter blended over Impressionist filter to keep the same contrast.

Re: Spartans

Yeah; sky maybe not to everyone's taste. Kept it bright for this one.

Re: Spartans

Facinating pix. Solo 'Spartan' looked like an ideal candidate for conversion to BW, then sepia tone...
