I love old houses! I sepia toned this and ran it thru VP oil paint, then did impressionist of the original and merged them, and buzz was in there somewhere.

Thanks Danny for another great photo.
Amy: color looked good in the thumbnail, but seemed to be missing a bit more detail when I opened it up.
Xaran: I too thought pen/ink, but you got there first.
...so I went for texture:

Simplified colors
- Duplicate background
- Apply Cutout 8/10/3 (oops, lost the chimney)
Make texture (DIY emboss)
- Duplicate background
- Make a good grayscale: I like to use a b/w gradient layer
- Duplicate grayscale, invert, opacity=50%: all gray now;
- Apply offset: in this case used -1/-1 to get horizontal and vertical lines;
- Spread out the gray spike: Levels layer
- Merge these three layers.
Combine
- Set the 'texture' layer blending to luminosity and twiddle opacity until happy ;
- Finish off with a levels adjustment.

Phew.. (hmm, an ethereal chimney? )
Shame I had to crush it with 5% JPG quality to get under 100K

Mixing back 50% into the original gives it a bit more 'punch'.

enjoy...

Wow - those are really great, almost as if you could reach out and touch the texture. I'll have to give that a try.

My Attempt...

I thought this was a great image to try out the Dave Jaseck sketch action I'd found somewhere online.
  • Corrected perspective using the crop tool.
  • Ran the 'sketch with colour' action.
  • Increased contrast of the sketch layer using levels.
  • Increased the overall colour saturation by +35.
  • Added a blue sky gradient on a new layer at top of stack.
  • Changed blend mode to Darken.
  • Used layer mask to remove gradient from building.
  • Crunched and saved.
Any thoughts?

Nice interpretations Ro (awesome texture depth) & Steve...

I believe Jaseck's sketch action (as well as many others) is available at www.AtnCentral.com.

Think I´m getting hooked on this Cutout filter....

- Cutout 8/10/1 on bottom;
- Cutout 2/5/10 on top and blending set to overlay

this is fun...

i wanted to do some kinda oil paint, and ended w/ this watercoloured-sketch-like thing... funny things happen

had to scale it down, looks much better full size

3 copies, bottom one palette knife, middle one just changed blend to hard light, top one find edges and blend-overlay...

maybe cutout filter would look also good instead of that palette knife...

Quick, easy and a beautiful result.
Thanks, this goes straight into my 'bag of tricks'.

My vote´s for the palette knife. Cutout doesn´t seem to get past the hard light.

Have a good weekend,

Roland
