Creative interpretations: The Beatles Crossing the Street

A classic (albeit grainy) pic of the original Fab Four.

Bet we'll see some fun interpretations of this one.

The first thing I thought when I saw this image was that it was meant for my select black method.

1. Select black. Invert,
2. Flood fill with brown.
3. Paint with art history brush in various modes.

Then I tried my latest variation on the CYMK mask.
1. Convert to CYMK.
2. Duplicate black channel.
3. Convert back to RGB
4. Load black channel as a selection.
5. Impressionist--paint swirls
6. Paint Engine--arctic (fade 65) Deselect
7. New layer. Flood fill with brown. Add canvas texture with texturizer.
8. Create layer mask and paint with black to reveal image. Set blending mode of brown canvas layer to vivid light (try others).

I wound up liking them both.

You've been there too, eh? Great links by the way!

Here's another one. Well, you get the idea.

The "floating Beatles" pic is great, as is "Coming and Going."

Brilliant idea on the swapout the crosswalk for the keyboard concept.

Cheryl: Even 'tough cusomer, John" would be pleased with either of your versions.

OK. You cheeky little young ones. Rondon and I have come clean. What year were you really born in? Have you gone to the Mushroom Patch?

Cheers

Kinda' cheesy, but i didn't want to mess with the boys too much. Created a strawberry pattern for George and John, then blends and blurs. The main image got Pixel painter action 2-3 times, blends.
Duv, I'm one of them 'Golden Oldies'.

Interesting time warp connection Kiska. Strawberry Fields Forever and Abbey Road. BTW, Golden Oldies stay young forever!

Cheers
