I agree, Cheryl. Definitely some nice interpretations so far.

kiska: The Impressionist plugin is part of a program called Image Composer that was distributed with Microsoft Front Page 98, which is no longer being sold commercially. If you're an eBay shopper, FP98 comes up for auction pretty often.

If you're not into eBay and you're interested in acquiring this plugin, contact me through e-mail or private mail (click my name above the post).

I was trying for a sketchy look that didn't look too much like anything I've seen before.

Speaking of Impressionist, I used the varients Pencil Sketch: Detailed Monochrome and Conte: Smudged Monochrome, plus Virtual Painter Collage (only the black strokes), Find Edges, Smart Blur/Normal + Smart Blur Edges Only and the usual layer masks and blend modes to select areas of each effect to include in the final result.

If anyone wants to see all the gory details (there are many), send me e-mail. I never know if anybody really finds the blow-by-blow descriptions I do occasionally useful and I'm too tired right now to describe a 17 layer stack.

Keep having fun. Glad to such a variety of interpretations.

This photo gives a whole new meaning to sipping wine. A nice picture to try some different techniques.

Did a levels adjustment.
Eliminated noise in order to apply an even texture.
Not sure, but I think I applied ink outlines to the BG. Darkened with Nik midnight.
Used india ink for the texture and painted a light emboss to certain areas.
Added some form where needed on her dress.
Applied a lens flare to wine glass.
Added a highlight to her lips.
Applied lacquer to portions of her face and dress.
Made a color adjustment.

I did two versions. The first is xero lineart on sketch with lines all the way up, merged with a buzzed copy of original.

Second is Fauvist from the new VP

Quick and dirty - Adjusted threshold, cut out image and started playing around. Simple!

suchyy:

Nothing wrong with simple. Nobody says this has to be complicated.

Welcome to the forum. Hope to see more of your works in the future.

Bold simplicity. Very creative.

LQQKER:

Always glad to see your interpretations, L. Another unique interpretation. Nice to see variety.

Amy:

Appreciate you posting something rendered with one of the new Virtual Painter 4 filters for others to see.

I like this filter on some images, but generally keep the settings more modest to minimize the distortion. Just a preference.

This is a basic method I've used on quite a few pics. I don't remember the exact settings, but the idea is to simplify color and form, then increase contrast and edges. With this image, I ran Neat Image twice to get rid of all noise. Then I overcranked with Image Doctor Jpeg Repair. Then ran Focal Blade sharpener at very high levels. Then did touch up with blur and sharpen tools. Also some cloning.

Hey, Andrew... Long time, no see. Glad to see your post.

Very interesting interpretation with the zoom, super smoothe and crop. Well done, sir.

Is it just me, or is there no thumbnail for Andrew's attachment? Doug is doing some forum software tweaking, so no thumbnail may be due to his handiwork.
