me again...

the renditions here and all over this forum are so inspirational. I am curious if Manjumena is willing to share with us his methods. The two images I have seen by you have astounded me!

Absolutely. I used 2 render-clouds layers for the color, then the watercolor filter, and Voila!!

My try

1. desaturate
2. invert - color dodge
3. gaussian blur
4. merge visible (multiply)
5. equalize
5.diffuse-anisotropic
6.cutout

Lovely as usual, Manju.

I understand (now) how to get the background, which works very well in this one.

Teach us more:
What did you do to get the random rippled effect once you rendered the BG?

Life on Mars

I really like jaykita's image. Very delicate.

For my interpretation I started with a cracked earth texture I found on the web and played with the perspective tool untill I liked it.
I copied the resulting image and used it as an alpha channel.
Then I went to lighting effects and used the alpha channel I created as a texture cahnnel.
For the sky I used a picture I took, desaturated it, and played with the curves to get that effect.
I painted a thick blue stripe across the horizon and lowered the opacity to give the ground some depth.
Finally, I created a color balance adjustment layer on the whole image.
Oh, I also applied the add noise filter to the whole image

Well done Earthman, I would've been more impressed if there was more red colouring though in the sky and cracked earth. It is still very effective irrespective.

pretty, not brave

When I first saw this thread, I thought Danny's title was perfect... a very brave flower to grow in that nasty gray muck. I think Earthman took the title to heart turning the muck into much worse (from a flower's perspective).

Painter users are starting to show their "unfair" advantage here. What great & varied results!

I'm joining the majority here giving the flower nothing to fear in an overly complicated sketch rendition... Isolated the flower on its own layer. Created a new background (Clouds, Diff. Clouds, Twirl, Levels, Angled Strokes, & Diffuse>Anisotropic) that I feared was too busy, Merged decolored version of the flower onto the background. Did the ColorDodge sketch trick, but ran Angled Strokes on the top layer instead of GBlur. Moved to top. Multiply mode with layer mask to tone down the sketch lines in the flower itself. Used the isolated color flower with a ShagRug pattern layer in Colorburn mode above. Merge the patt. layer down. Copy this and ran Spatter. Both layers set to reduced opacities. Put a light colored RenderClouds layer below this for some muted background color. Merged all visible to a new layer and deleted some of the background using a highly feathered selection. Put a white layer below this and cropped to taste.
