Re: Lotus Blossom

I had to give this a try. Wondered how it would look on a ceramic tile.

Re: Lotus Blossom

Thanks, Craig. I find this is so addicting. Retouchpro is the first place I go when I turn on the computer-even before checking the email.
Mind if I ask how you got the sparkle effect? Your lotus just jumps out of the screen.

Re: Lotus Blossom

Thank you, Janet.

I did a little smudge and sharpen, paint with history and then some dodge and burn. Used a brush with a rosy color and yellow with the brush set to jitter the colors then added on of my favorite textures-stucco 2.

Re: Lotus Blossom

shari,

the sparkle is a fairly natural result of one of my filter forge filters. it uses HRD lighting environments and depth/height adjustments. it also has a built-in reflection aspect. i think on that particular image it was the reflection aspect that added the sparkle. i call that particular filter 'the monster'; not because of the ugliness of the product, but because it's the largest filter i've ever made

and what did you use to get your tile?

Re: Lotus Blossom

Glad I didn't uninstall my PS5.5 when I installed CS2. The angled brushstrokes filter (one of the gems that I really like in Photoshop) for 5.5 actually works in Irfanview (not so for CS2 for whatever reason). Still doing my Dual collaboration between Irfanview and GIMP2.4 (sad that these two programs together still use far less resources then CS2 alone as far as my PC is concerned; oh well) for this brushed oil rendering.

Re: Lotus Blossom

I did this as a straight retouch: sharpen, contrast, convert to Lab, D&B, lighting effects
