Re: Creative interpretations: Fishing Village

Wanted to try this; I really don't know what I'm doing other than just "playing" right now.

Thanks Palms! There's so much to learn and it "sticks" better if I'm having fun learning. I really, really liked your rendition and was trying to duplicate what you had done but, ended up somewhere else .

That's another common one going somewhere else, but you are right having fun is the best way to learn, next problem is remembering how you done it

if you are interested i used the technique in this tutorial

( dont worry about all the fiddly bits yet get the gist and then come back to the rest, again its more fun when you are getting results )

Re: Creative interpretations: Fishing Village

Great Photo for a pen and ink with wash.

I first did this using my line art sketcher method and tweaked that. Then made the result a pattern and painted back with the pattern stamp brushes. This kind of look is rather radical for me, but I'm coming to like the loose splotchiness (is that a word) that I can achieve with various brushstrokes and textrue.

Do we have to count the buildings?....Now that's what I call togetherness. Reminds me of the houses in Japan.

That was a terrific tutorial! I was able to achieve pretty similar results as the end sample in the tutorial. And then I felt like I was getting to be a "big shot" and I tried the technique on the fishing village. Ugh! Not quite what I wanted, but, better than my first try. Anyway, thanks again for heading me toward the tutorial, I will be playing with that for quite a while now

I like the splotchiness too, Swampy; and if it wasn't a word yet, now it's a technique!

Re: Creative interpretations: Fishing Village

Good shot there lcramer53 it does work better or should i say differently on different images, i found that some colours work better than others, but there is a lot of scope there with different brushes and tweaking of colours, and ( i havent tried it yet) but maybe a different filter to smartblur , welcome to the world of "what iff's"

Swampy that looks really good, you are mastering the stamp tool

Steve, i bet the postman or milkman's round is over quick ! ! !

Re: Creative interpretations: Fishing Village

Swampy, I like your splotches, too.

I've been playing for the last few days with the same WC tute Palms used. I tried it here, with some added tweaks.
