Interesting photograph Danny

This is one of those instances where I wish I had a higher resolution photo to work with.

Danny - I like your first attempt. Simple yet effective
Andrew - A simplified version which shows just enough. Nice!
catia - Although the texture of the brush strokes is interesting, it's difficult to tell what the picture is about (unless that was your intention). It may have been more effective if you would have painted a small amount of detail back into the picture.
jch71566 - A interesting painterly effect.
svsg - nice sketch

I adjusted the colors a bit using hue & sat and cropped the image.
Ran adapt equalize using layers, applying what I needed via mask
Used a few Nik filters. Monday & skylight.

To keep the features I painted in some detail then ran noise to keep the image somewhat smooth. Used a lot of masks and layers.

LQQKER,

Sorry this didn't "float your boat" as Danny likes to say. It is an interpretation. In particular, I believe there is more to love that external detail and/or beauty. I was looking for something a little deeper in the interpretation.

For example, the large amount of bench space to the left in the original image gave me a feeling of lonliness; so, I cropped it out. This gave me an image with distinct, bold lines from the top left down to the middle, across to the right and down again to the lower right corner. Two bodies, together, bold, and secure. Love..

Catia

catia - I did say "unless that was your intention."

I realize that art is subjective. I merely made, what I thought at the time, a helpful suggestion.

I apologize if I offended you, it was not my intent.

No offense, taken. Just explaining my humble logic.

The background was simply too much for this image. So I cut them out and placed them on a black background. Then I hit the whole thing with Harry's filter Color>BW Limiter Pro, the did a one step photo enhance and softened. (PSP8)

Young folks this age see everything thing in their lives as black and white. I was trying to emphasize the seriousness of youth.

This I really like. Could you explain in more detail, especially the India Ink and Texturizer steps?

Hey, Peejay...

Welcome aboard. I've been waiting for Andrew to reply. He's ususally pretty responsive to questions. Perhaps he's offline for a few days.

On the Texturizer part, I'd say that's achieved using Photoshop's Filter > Texture > Texturizer filter. We'll have to wait for the India Ink description.

Thanks for asking. I'd be interested in knowing too.

~Danny~

On the India Ink, Andrew has a technique using the Flaming Pear India Ink product. You can find India Ink here, and also check out Andrew's description of what he does with it. Never tried it myself, so that's the limit of my knowledge...

Sorry for the late reply. I was not paying much attention and didn't notice the request for help. If this happens again, feel free to send me a private message that alerts me to read the thread.

I see someone has already posted a link to the India Ink method. If you need any additional help with this, let me know. The main thing about this method (as with every photoart method) is the results depend a lot of the picture.

As for Texturizer, this is the Texturizer filter in Photoshop. I'm not sure which texture I used in this image, but my guess is it was sandstone, which I backed off to a level where I could just barely see it.
