I get to start another one! hurrah!

OK...
Duped BG.
I thought "RED" was a large part of this picture.
Played with Levels on the channels to increase the redness of the pic.
Then loaded the BG as a selection and applied that as a Layer mask to red layer.
Inverted the layer mask.
Stamped Visible.
Ran PS:Sketch:Graphic Pen - 5, 27, right diagonal after making a dark red my foreground color.
Faded to Pin Light.
Loaded Red layer's green channel as a selection and applied that as Layer mask to Graphic Pen layer.
Inverted Layer Mask.
Duped BG again.
Ran PS:Sketch:Halftone Pattern - 3, 31, Dot.
Stamped Visible.
Ran Impressionist:Marker:Textured Sepia Tonal.
Faded to Multiply and lowered Opacity.
Ran Impressionist:Ink: Spiderweb Crosshatch - changed color to Foreground.
Faded to Pin Light and lowered Opacity.
Duped BG again.
Ran PS:Stylize:Find Edges.
Desaturated.
brought that layer on top.
Set layer blending to Overlay.
Selected White in that layer and applied a Layer mask.
Inverted Layer mask.
Stamped visible.
Ran PS:Texture:Texturizer- Canvas, 97, 3, Bottom Left.

Haunted House

Please forgive my lack of description but both these examples took considerable time and over 40 layers and to remember and write everything would be a pretty tall order, but when i get some sleep, i may perhaps share a few tips.

The house had such good lines and so much character, I didn't want to change that I went for the nothing fancy approach...just your basic pencil sketch and brush strokes.

I pretended I was painting this one, lying in the tulip patch in late February, when the trees have just begun to bud. The main filter I used was PhotoShop Dry Brush.

Great Posts!!!

More experimentation in Painter. Started off following a tute for a sketch. Used this to create a Watercolour of sorts?! Gave up and finished off in PSP8 applying a Detail Brushstroke effect. Also added Gregs Pool Shadow filter to add a lighting effect.

Very, very impressive. Did the texture-look come from Painter or PSP?

Is PSP8 Detail Brushstroke a filter?

I love these kind of houses...

I did all these in PSP.v9 with my new toys scripts...

1. Airbrush and ink script
2. Watercolour script
3. Septia frame script (I love this one...I plan to use this script on my parents photographs)...
4. Black & White pencil drawing script
5. Charcoal script...

I adore these scripts, had only ever used psp.v.9 for resizing pictures and removing red eye...yeah so since i found a site that does psp scripts i was really enjoying the program.

~Legacy~

In England we just do not have these kind of houses...Or not here in Lancashire we don't!


(Anyone have psp8 or psp9 and would like any of these scripts then please email me i will be happy to send them to you).

These look promising, but the examples are WAY TOO SMALL to assess the effects.

If you can, would you replace these with larger versions? (click the Edit button for your post, engage the Manage Attachments dialog (delete each and upload bigger versions).

Are you writing the scripts?
