Creative interpretations: Civil War Soldier

Something out of the past, taken during a recent reinactment event.

BTW: "Civil War": Oxymoron?

I followed Trimoon's sketch tutorial to a minor extent then placed the cutout soldier above and overlayed him on for some color.

This portrait speaks to me on several levels and I found it to be worthy challenge. Thank you Danny for posting it. Amen to your comment about the Civil War. And Amen to Jaykita for wishing us peace on earth. And at the risk of offending...May God bless us all.

Beautiful Photo

First of all, I'm half in love with the beautiful man in this photo; his eyes truly mesmerize me.
Jaykita, I like how you mutted the background, making him, even more clearly, the focal point.
And Janet, this is the best interpretation from Trimoon's tutorial that I have seen. You really nailed it!

A nice image to work on:
1. Did levels and hue & saturation to adjust image.
2. Used Shan Canfields tutorial for a sketch affect. I hope someday she will get time to finish the tutorial, I know she is busy.
3. Used a PS charcoal brush to color in.
4. Finished with extension frames.

I like this a lot. One of your best works, yet. I hope you print and frame this one.

I, too, hope Shan finishes her charcoal tutorial someday. She is very, very talented.
