Creative interpretations: Bountiful Fruit Still Life

Since Thanksgiving 2003 is this week, I was looking for something along those lines and found this photo by Baris.

This was done using Photobrush and the coloured pencil option, I find this gives a much better effect than the PS coloured pencil.

This is line art watercolor that relies on smart blur. The tutorial can be found on http://www.dwphotoshop.com/photoshop...watercolor.php

Xaran:

You're right... the PhotoBrush version of colored pencil has a lot going for it. I much prefer the result on this image over the Photoshop version.

Bob:

Thanks for posting that tutorial link. I've seen ones similar to it, but this one has a unique twist. I added the link to the "photo-art tutorials" thread.

On mine I was just messing around with no particular preconceived notion of where I was going. This was an example of a "happy accident" (aka: [i]Accidental Art.[i]).

Rather than explain all the steps, a screenshot of the Layers Palette attached to the next post tells the story, with the exception that I added to the canvas size so emphasize the stroke frame. Blend modes (if not normal) noted in parens.

In retrospect layer D. could be eliminated.

Layer E. was used to restore color using a Layer Mask.

Weirdo Still Life with Fruit

A bit different. Using PSP8

Effects-Color balance, tungsten balar to give it the blueish tones

Effects-Artistic effects=Contours-Custom 1 with minimalised features and a light color of black instead of white. Detail at 8 and intensity at 52.

Auto Contrast enhancement

Softened.

(I heard on tv that anyone could become an expert in their field if they just devoted 3-5 hours a day for a year. I still have a lot of year to "paint" through...)

haven't done one of these in a while and thought I'd join in -- using Corel Photopaint here...

I duped the background to a new layer and ran a Plaster Wall texture on it and then added a Lighting effect of Texturize Light Top Left. I also dropped the transparency to 95%. I also used a Tone Curve to brighten this up a bit.

I duped the background again, placed this layer on top of the other and ran an Underpainting texture on it and dropped the transparency to 25%. I also ran a Tone Curve on this layer to brighten it up a bit.

I duped the background yet again, placing this layer on top. I ran a Watercolor art stroke on it, dropped the transparency to 70%, and made the merge mode of this layer to If Lighter.

I duped the background for the last time, again placing this new layer on top, and ran a Pen And Ink/Stippling texture on it, reduced the transparency to 45%, and made the merge mode of the layer to be Logical AND.

Finally, I duped the background and clipmasked the center portion out so I would have just the frame.

Fooling around w/ Painter8 some more, this time with the chalk cloner. Tried the Blender>GrainyBlender on the background, but didn't like it much on this image. I used the Pens>Thick&ThinPen3 to delinate some of the edges (hand drawing). Increased contrast with Curves in Elements2 as a final step.
