Creative interpretations: Football Players make Football Plays
Photo by Dirk.
Very cool, Jeff. My compliments. One of the better interpretations I've seen lately, right up with Bob's "strawberry head."
When you get a few minutes if could you summarize how you did that, I'm sure many would be interested.
This is a combination of Find Edges on top of one of the many Microsoft Impressionist Plugin effects.
Layer Stack top to bottom"
F. Hue/Saturation (increase saturation a bit)
E. Levels (lighten image overall)
D. Levels (grouped with Find Edges layer below) - to get rid of some midtone noise
C. Find Edges (Darken) + layer mask to zap more noise
B. Impressionist: Charcoal - Default (using image as background)
A. (off) Background
Danny, great job! It catches the dynamic action very well.
As for mine, here are the steps.....
1) Went to Google & searched for "blimp" under the images tab. Found an old Navy blimp picture.
2) Added a picture of sky on a layer below the blimp
3) Using a mask layer, I completly masked hanger that the blimp was located in, and changed opacity on the windows of the cockpit to 50% (to let the sky show through)
4) brought in football picture on new layer, blend mode=hard light
5) reduce opacity of football player layer to ~65%
6) floated football picture selection
7) Used deform tools to scale, rotate, and change perspective, and move football players into position
8) De-float selection
9) Crop & Save
