My compliments to the photographer. This is a great shot.

Don--I like the texture in the fur. Also, the effect gives good emphasis to the lion.

I'm on an impressionist kick. This time I was playing with textures from the paper choices as well as the emboss effect in the filter. I put a gaussian blur sketch on top to bring back a little detail.

Hi everyone,


Nice kitten here but I agree with svsg, a not so easy photo-art image.

Don : it looks as if the lion sits in the middle of a waterfall. I would have liked a bit more detail in his body though. I had the same problem. The left part became too white with all the consecutive layers. I tried to get back some detail with masking some parts out.

1 = background=off
2 = copy bg + usm + cutout 7-0-3
3 = copy layer 2 / multiply
4 = impressionist-spattery water/ overlay
5 = copy bg-desat-invert-aniso/ color dodge + mask
6 = selective color adjustment layer
7 = copy bg + original to paint details in eyes and paws back in

I forgot to mention your entries Cheryl and Don,

Cheryl good work on the textures. Did you use different textures on different parts of the pic?

svsg : did you use the gimp here? It gives a sort cartoony look.

Gina--nope, the textures came from impressionist and I added a slight emboss on effects. Since the strokes were varied, it gave the effect of varied texture.

Gina, Your version is nice... I used gimp, that is the only program I have. Is the cartoony look good or bad?

Nice photo with some nice versions.

Cropped and did an unsharp mask. Did a little Paint Engine and added a pattern layer.

Hi everyone,

nice render too Catia.

svsg : not necessarily bad or good. It was more my first impression I had of it. I went looking for the gimp for windows but when they start putting warnings on the page like : when the program doesn't work do this or .... I'll wait till they get the bugs out
Can you compare it with photoshop or paintshop pro?? If we put a description in we do to get to an image, can you relate that to the gimp or what??

see ya

gina

This is from a watercolor action by Mike Finn. All my contribution was to clean up where colors overlapped and made a new layer and blended it into the old with opacity setting for details.
Thanks
