Creative interpretations: Train UK Steam Engine
Last edited by DannyRaphael; 01-17-2005 at 03:42 PM. Reason: Typo fix.
Not sure why this one sat for so long. I think it has great possibilities.
Image1: Copy BG. Bandpass (6 to 1.5 ??). GlowingEdges. Layer set to Exclusion, 85%. MergeVis (BG, and altered copy). SmudgeStick the merged layer.
Image 2: Start with Image1 as a base. Copy Image1. Select foreground and background colors from the Image1 (gray-blue and dark rusty red). Invert th copy & set this layer Darken mode. Run Chalk & Charcoal on both layers. Masked sky and steam clouds in topy layer. Merge visible (image1 and its inversion Did some cloning around the smokestack. Created a new sky using a couple passes of Reticulation, Invert and Chalk&Charcoal on a copy of the flat sky in the merged layer. Lowered opacitity of the new sky layer.
Cropped to alter composition. Resized for posting.
Had a go again in Painter, this was more difficult due to more detail required.
Time: Approx. 1 hour.
Duped bottom layer
L2 – Flaming Pear/Tachyon Filter
Mode – Soft Light 100%
Merged Both layers.
Selected bg and filled with blue.
(fg colour blue – bg white)
Mura Meister/Cloud Filter
Paintbrush/Marble to add some green
To the trees.
New Layer – filled with white.
Oils/Fine Feathering Oils 30
All over photo following contours throughout.
Blenders/Soft Blender Stump 20
Over the sky.
Blenders/Smear – Over front carriage
Blenders/Grainy Blender 30 –
On engine, tracks, wheels.
(Note: I did not like the result of this
graininess and later softened)
Soft Airbrush to add more mist as some had
Duplicated tracing layer – Gel Mode.
Softened image(i.e. pixels from Grainy Blender 30 Brush used above)
Mask and canvas texture added.
Mark - that sketch turned out just great.
Neve - very nice and subtle, great work.
basically just Paint Engine and Impressionist as pin light over it, and Little Ink Pot's Chalkaholic for overlay...
Here's my attempt at steam train imaging, and here's what I did:
I cut out the sky and replaced it with some "Lightning"
I created a neutral gray Layer above the train and used that to modify the image. I lightened and darkened in various places. I gave a bit of a color cast to the top of the train and faded the tracks in the foreground.
I created a transparent layer below the train Layer and ran up and down it a few times with a couple of colors to help seperate the train from the background.
Hope you like it.
Another Oil Painting Rendition:
Clone / Wet Oil Brush 10
Basically using the original image as a trace, following the trains natural curves and, but this time keeping the brush size the same throughout the exercise.
I tried to fade the train a little bit in the distance
Free painted the clouds in for added atmosphere
Imported into Photoshop for Curves adjustments
Compression not so good for this image so a copy is available on my Pbase Gallery ( see my signature below )

Bad joke... Very nice results, Con.

Axle: This is very impressive work. About how long did it take to "paint."
Just somethin' about trains..
