Using PSP8 I used the sepia tone without first greyscaling the image. Then I buzzed it and applied VP oil paint. Then a layer with xero lineart of the original, which I also buzzed to get rid of "dirt" in the image. Merged it all together and there it is.

Amy:

The "earthy" tones you applied look just right. They give the pic a sense of warmth. Looks like you freehanded in some background hills, too, yes?

Photofixer is developing a "simplifier action," that she asked me to take for a test spin. (I like it A LOT.) In this version I ran it twice on one layer to maximize the effect, then dibbled and dabbled with several layers of Impressionist.

If you haven't tried it yet, here's an Impressionist setting to try:
* Pencil Sketch: Detailed Colored
* Press the "More Controls" button
* From the menu that shows Background as the first entry, choose Color
* From the Color panel, open the Palette menu and choose Rainbox
* Apply

I think this style and color combination looks pretty neat (maybe it's just me). Experiment with the Jitter: Hue setting, too. This will vary the colors even more.

I also used the Paint: Fluorescent Palette Knife setting to break up some detail.

I tried MANY different things on this. Basically, a simplify action on the train,posterize, filters, blends. Sorry, I can't be more specific.

Wow! Nice Choo Choo's everyone! I dug out my old PhotoArtMaster and played around. Dumped it into VP Gauche then slapped it into Impressionist, Charcoal to give it a wintery look.

Cheers

I've been away for a while (out of the country for over a month), and sick when I got back so I haven't done much work lately. But I'm back in action again, and I love the train image.

I used a technique Cheryl H. described in another thread (http://www.retouchpro.com/forums/photo-art-resources/8200-try-playing-history-brush.html). I played around with lots of filters, VP, Impressionist, Paint Engine, as well as some native Photoshop filters. Thanks, Cheryl, this worked very well.

Patricia--I'm glad it worked for you. Do you remember what strategy you used for your base sketch?

Cheryl, I ran Mike F.'s actions, I tried Digidoodle, Pop, and pOpArTiSt. I think I chose the one from pOpArTiSt, but they all were nice clean outlines.

Oh, the things I have learned from this forum! Thanks everybody.
