waterpump

there's a fun tea garden not too far from me that has ... some really interesting decorations. Thought you might like to 'artify' this.

Have fun. Be creative. You may do whatever you like with your edit but please do not rehost my original or claim it as your own.

Show me what you can do!

here's the raw file if you'd rather start with that.

Re: waterpump

After recovering from my dizzy spell looking at Lyle's offering , here's a go at a soft colored pencil.

Re: waterpump

Nancy: Thx for sharing your photo. Much appreciated.

LK: Always like how you push the envelope... Your creativity and vision inspire many.

Speaking of traditional, here's a BW interpretation made in Photoshop by creating layers from the individual color channels and combining them using layer masks and the Soft Light blend mode.

Skipatk,
Could you explain a little about the colored pencil for a nube?
To clarify, I'm not new to PS but to this type of treatment.
BTW, All you guys (and gals) Rock!!!

Thank,
Muggs

Re: waterpump

Muggs

It's usually a little different each time, but the basic steps are:

1. Create a pencil drawing of the picture. For me it's a combination of two or three different programs/plugins (Fotosketcher, Alien Skin, and Topaz simplify) and then using different blending modes and opacities to achieve the desired result.

2. Place the result from step 1 on a layer above the original and again use blending modes and reduced opacity to achieve a result you like.

There are many other ways to get this type of effect, so don't hesitate to experiment.

Good luck
