Creative interpretations: Wagon on the Prarie

Makes a 62 Volkswagon look like a pretty good alternative, doesn't it?

Photo by Lorraine.

Oooh, another really nice image!

I ran MS Impressionist with my "Painter" variant. Next, I ran buZZ simplifer 1 over the top of that. Did some horizontal diffusion on the sky using Richard Rosenmann's diffuse filter, then repeated the impressionist & buZZ steps.

First image post - be kind.
Duplicated layer and ran Levels adjustment to even out image.
Imported "Driving" sign to new layer. Adjusted scale and perspective and set layer mode to Color Burn.
Added new sky layer and adjusted with Hue/ saturation layer.
Merged visible - Gaussian Blur 0.5 to smooth edges and blends.
Filter Stylize/Diffuse/Anisotropic to give image a brittle/bleached effect. Reminded me of farm equipment I played on as a child, it would crumble and snap easily.

Thanks for letting me post.

End of Trail

PSP8.....

Adjusted the color balance, contrast, and saturation. Ran the Xero Moonlight filter set to default. Applied edge preserving smooth and brushstrokes. Duped the BG and applied texture - canvas filter with blend set to overlay. Reduced opacity to taste.

Nice picture to work with!
Jeff - I missed your submission when I made my post
I like the blend of color and strong strokes. Even in the destorted stokes the details are still there.


Paris - Love the added sighn - the overall softness to the image is pleasing. Great job.

Catina - this just screams paint me! and your painting is wonderful. I like the subtle color changes you made.

I created a new layer desaturated, used curves, duplicated the layer then find edges. New layer and used the history brush to bring in color, boosted the sat up. Then new layer with fiber texture low opacity.

Paris:

Glad you took the plunge. Love this kind of creativity. The application of the "bumper sticker" looks very natural texture- and orientation-wise. Well done.

Welcome and keep 'em coming!

Catia:

You've done it again with a nice combination of effects.

Hey Jill:

I like this technique a lot. It works especially well on this pic.

Thanks Danny and Jill.

Jill, I like yours as well. The brush strokes turned out really nice.

Nice paintng also Jeff. I like the color and the brush strokes.

Jeff:

Someday you should start a thread titled something like: Impressionist Tips, Tricks and Miracles. I've never known anyone who gets more mileage out of Impressionist than you do.

This one is based on one of the many tutorials Trimoon has published (www.Trimoon.com). Frame from PS7 One-Click Wow.

Danny, thanks for the compliment.

Paris, Welcome! I really like your picture. The brittle effect is wonderful.

Catia, as always you have presented a great picture. I'm going to have to experiment with Xero Moonlight.

Jill, I forgive you for missing my post. (kidding!) I really like your picture, too!

-Jeff

drybrush

Here's my try: One pic buzzed, then PSP8's Drybrush. One pic buzzed then xero lineart b/w. Merged for kinda patchy effect.
