jaykita:

Ultimate Paint looks like a pretty cool toy. Your results are excellent.

Jeff:

Isn't Virtual Photographer a cool plugin? And FREE too! (Click here). The options are varied and very impressive.

Thought I'd give this a go with my oil mimic. My initial result was too 'scratchy' looking, so I added 2 copies of the original above (one HardLight 36%, the other Luminosity 50%). Finished up with a texture layer and Curves layer to lighten a bit.

Hi Danny,

Please find attached my attempt at a Still Life.

1. Cut out of background
Inserted a new background and created some "Shafts of light" to light it.
Created a neutral gray Overlay Layer and painted in some white to lighten the shadows.
I then copied all of this to a new composite Layer and ran "Virtual Photographer" plug in set to "Glamour".
Changed the Blend mode to Screen.

2. I thought the gap between the vase and the bowl was too great so I moved the vase a bit closer.
Duplicated the Layer and used Gaussian Blur.
Changed the Blend mode to Screen.
Used the Render>Lighting filter to illuminate the composition.

Hope you like them.

Regards

Con

Con, I like both your attempts. For me, this pic has a 70's feel, and the background you chose is perfect. The shafts of light are also very appropriate for this kind of still life. Good job.

Yes, indeed, I do -- especially the composition and lighting. That's some of the best results I've seen using the Lighting filter.

** Keep 'em coming! **

Photoshop to move vase behind fruit.

Lightened by duplicating layer and screen mode at 50% opacity.

Photobrush Watercolour

Back to Photoshop and duplicate of original with xero line art in multiply mode to finish.
