My Try

This is yet another try using the Impressionist Filter.

Basically, what I do is create a duplicate layer and apply the filter to this new layer. Then I erase the filtered layer (only around the edges of the subject), bringing out the detail. The two layers are then merged. Deleting only the edge still leaves enough of the filtered layer to give the elusion of brush strokes. Next, I create a new layer, set the blending mode to Color Dodge and then apply a rough brush with the color of say blue or red, depending on the subject color. The layers are then merged together and texturize. I always have to texturize. I can't seem to stop. I must be addicted.

Steve, you always amaze!

I wanted to keep the dark tone of the pic. I combined impressionist (Paint antique smudges) with VP oil and played around with the saturation.

I liked the image so much I did a second version. This one is an average of the original and PSP8 topography, then the whole thing gets run through PSP8's rough leather texture #1 on purple-blue and sharpened a lot.

I love seeing the diverse results as well the interesting steps taken to achieve them. They're all good enough to hang...!

PSP8.01

I extracted most of it from it's bg and placed into another larger canvas but had to reinstate slight shadows using the darken tool. Not a lot was required.
Altered the Hue/Sat to suit. Duped bottom layer - 2nd layer - applied
Artistic Brushstroke and erased some parts I didn't like. Merged and
applied a texture.

Wonderful takes on this image!

I especially like Manjumena's -- very different look; I like the textures!
I especially like Reg's -- texture really adds to the image, while keeping a hint of the glass.

These are all great. I don't think I could pick a favorite although I think Reg wins on most unique (great look).

I did my latest usual thing:

1. convert to cymk and duplicate black channel
2. convert back to rgb then made 3 duplicate layers
3. Loaded black channel as a selection.
4. ran a different impressionist filter on each layer (stamp--dry rag, paint--antique smudges, ch nontextured--tinfoil 1d).
5. played with layer order, blending mode and opacity until happy then merged to a new layer.
6. reselected and inverted selection then vp oil
7. canvas glaze using 2 colors from the image
8. played around with adjustment layers to modify tone slightly.
