You don't have to feel bad about borrowing this photo from another venue..We (RP) used it first.. See below
Nice work on this one everyone..
Here is a sketch of the harbor.
Here's my "effort". I really was just playing to see if I could recreate one of the other "art" pics and ended up with this. I really don't know how I got this, it just sort of looked right.
Harbor in OIl
No fair Phyliss & Chuck you have great toy.
Trimon, I l;ove yours all are good.
NIce work Collin & Jerry.
I thought I posted this before but I cant seem to find it.
Goldcoin, Trimoon, Jerry, and Collin, all good sketch treatments and all different styles.
Trimoon, love the faded edges...adds just the right touch. I prefer the colored ones in this case though I usually like your b/w sketches...must depend on the picture.
Jerry, those sharp outlines are daring and worked out well...especially like the reflection in the water.
Goldcoin, the bold black edges and the purplish colors really work well together.
Collin, whatever combination of filters you used your end result is unusual and artistic, and I think you stopped at just the right place.
Chuck and Phil, nice subtle paint treatments, and the textures work well with the soft paint look. I guess I'm with you guys on this pic, since I saw it as a "paint" pic rather than a "sketch" pic, though the recent post have demonstrated that it's good both ways. So I made a sketch too.
It's supposed to look like an old faded color print. Did the blur/dodge outline using dustnscratches filter, then on the original used KPT2's gaussian weave filter (one of their blur filters), which gave the roofs "shingles" and the windows sharp outlines since it makes edges into bright crosses...hard to explain if you haven't used it. Also put a faint large crosshatch texture from andromed techtures over the final pic.
Here is my rendition and steps I used to get there.
1. Create duplicate layer
3. Mode/Grayscale - don't flatten
4. Mode/RGB – don’t flatten
6. Image/Adjustments/Levels – add highlights by sliding the white arrow to the left. .
7. Image/Adjustments/Brightness-Contrast – you want to take the contrast slider to the minus usually between -10 and -30.
8. Create duplicate layer
10. Blending Mode colors dodge – should be all white, if not go back to step 8 and take the contrast down a little more.
11. Filter/Blur/Motion Blur – adjust so you can see as much detail as you desire.
12. Flatten image
13. Activate the History Brush and use the Watercolor 3 brush (PS7) and paint being careful not to go all the way to the edges.
14. Double click background layer and rename layer 0. (for transparent background.
15. Use Magic Wand to select the edge.
16. Select/Modify/Expand 5 to 10 pixels.
17. Edit/Copy and paste. This creates a new layer.
18. Filter/Brush Stokes/Angled Strokes – Direction Balance – 50, Stroke Length – 32, Sharpness – 3.
19. Merge Visible.
20. Create new layer and fill with 50% gray.
21. Filter/Noise/Add Noise – Amount – 181%, Gaussian, Monochromatic
22. I used buZZPro – Simplifier set at 288%
23. Set Layer Mode to Overlay and Opacity at 25%.
24. Merge Visible
26. Filter/Texturizer/Texture – choose what ever texture you like.
I didn't redo all the steps to see if I have it all down. Yawn... Let me know if anyone has a problem.
Happy New Year!!!
Oops... I just realized I left out a couple of steps.
Insert between steps 23 and 24.
25. Create New Layer and drag it to the bottom of the stack.
26. Select a background color and fill.
Collin very unique, I really like it..
Chuck and PHil, Both really nice paintings..The different texture on each of them really sets them off.
Phyllis..You definately achieved the faded print look..Very nice.
Lynda..Very pretty as usual..Thanks for taking the time to explain all of your steps..Very generous..
Lynda, just gorgeous...you've done it again!
I downloaded BuzzPro Simplifier trial version and used it here with render>lighting texturing along with an overlaid outline and some lighting changes. Tried to get a simple raised look, and found that if you set the blend mode to darken on your render>lighting layer much of the smaller annoying dents disappear and the result is a smoother look...at least on this picture...will have to try it elsewhere to see if it's helpful in general.
Lynda I really love your water color, one of the best I have seen.
Phyliss the pencil sketch is first rate, nice job.
Phyliss this buz is great, I love the coloration of the harbor scene. Do you think its an advantage to regular photos.
Anyway in thinking about this harbor scene I saw my self gazing into a Mirror.
Weel I dint have a program like Phyliss so I tried to make a kalidoscope and had in mind when you get evaluated the show you Ink blots, si Here is an inner mind
