The first one is mostly impressionist with a few other things thrown in for fun. The second one is an abstract with a litho effect.

A viola, a flower and an onion..
Pretty strange combination....
Hmm, must have something to do with texture..
So what if.....

Sometimes I do some strange things

But it was fun

All right, so I have to ask...is that really a white oleander, an onion and a violin? If it is, what is the symbolism in having these three things together in a classy photo? This one is too good to pass up. I'll be working on it in the a.m. when I'm only 1/2 braindead. Night all and have fun.

My version on this:

Duplicate background twice.

Bottom layer use glowing edges - blur slightly, use to create alpha channel.

Load alpha channel as mask on second duplicate of background, Ctrl J to copy to new layer. Pencil sketch.

Back to second duplicate and Xero line art in drawing mode to get much lighter version of image. Move above pencil sketch layer change mode to soft light.

Add a new blank layer between pencil sketch and background - fill and texture.

With rough edge brush mask out edges of line art and pencil sketch layer.

Don't have the plug-ins : but I'll fix something up!

Here's a coffee break abstract:
Level ajust to brighten up a bit [bright];
Duplicate [bright], apply Cutout 4/8/2;
Duplicate [bright], apply Cutout 2/10/3;
Set blending of this upper layer to Hue and....

voilá, instant Picasso (or is it Salvador Dali? )

have fun,

Roland

Now that's some ART!

Are you using Photoshop under Windows?

classy violin

Absolutely nothing fancy here. Everything is fairly straightforward. I tried just find edges and just a simple pencil sketch tutorial. Separately neither did what I wanted. Used together they gave the edge I was seeking. The screen shot is the easiest way to describe the method.

I love looking at everyone's interpretations. Each and every one of them are inspirations.

Yes...
- at home XP, with s - l - o - w dial-up;
- at work '98, with broadband and a firewall (censor) that thinks 'photo' and 'download' are naughty words. Thank goodness this site is called retouchpro and not photoretouch, else I wouldn´t be here!!!!

Perfect. I'd like to send you a complimentary copy of Microsoft (Windows only) FrontPage, that includes the Impressionist plugin to recognize you for your enthusiasm and creativity as a new member of this forum.

Via email (through my profile), send me your mailing address and I'll get the CD in the mail to you. In addition I'll attach a couple of documents to my reply e-mail with a couple documents that will come in handy - like how to install it!

Thanks for inspiring us with your boundless energy, Ro.
