Creative interpretations: Life's a Beach

Not sure about the wine glass in the sand (maybe it's Coca-cola, huh?), but it sure looks like a relaxing place to be!

Have fun.

I agree on the wine glass. Hey, cola works for me.

Here is a simple brush strokes with an emboss preset done in PSP8.

Had to do another one of this.

PS7 and Paint Engine . Duped the BG and ran PE - arctic. Added a layer mask and then painted the boy and chair back into the scene.

Paint Engine (http://www.fantasticmachines.com/html/free_download.htm) is an amazing plugin. The effects it rendered give both versions a lot of texture and definitely character.

This is simply a two layer effect where the top layer"guest" is isolated using a layer mask.

The bottom "arty" layer was a product of "the bottom layer" rendered by an action (free and "beta" at the moment) called "Insta-sketch" by Mike Finn. It can be downloaded here:

http://homepages.slingshot.co.nz/~mikefinn/action.html

BTW: On the right images the action noted above renders some terrific "sketch-like" effects... It achieves some of the best results I've seen by actions of this nature.

Wow!

That is a nice dreamy effect Danny. I like that a lot. So much, I can't find it in me to attach another version.

Well, perhaps I will in a moment or two.
