Creative Interpretations - Contemplation
Here's a sketch effect using just the Photocopy filter in Photoshop, then I reduced the picture size to 800px before running the Chalk and Charcoal filter.
Across the Border
Terrific result Mal and a great photo to work on, many thanks!
Thick Camel Cloner 20 - Hat - default settings
Ditto Jacket - 46% opacity
Ditto Face - 20% opacity
Added canvas texture and tartan frame.
I cropped the photo of this handsome gent; then here's roughly what followed:
Xero filters Improver
PS Cross hatch
moved some colors around using eyedropper & paint brush
smudge tool for artifacts that appeared in the background
Sharon's mat action
Mal - I've visited your site and must say, you have a good eye for capturing well composed photographs.
Blended one of Mal's other recently submitted pictures as a bg (seems appropriate).
Knocked out subject.
Color balance on bg as well as subject.
Simplified BG as well as image with different settings.
Sketchmaster was used to achieve frame edge.
Several hue & sat adj.
Added sandstone texture.
I replace the background with a yellow sky using KPT6 Sky Effects
Then used Poster Edges, Paint Engine, and Smart Blur.
Nice to meet you Mal...
Well i did mine in photoshop i first cloned our dear Mal Firth and then i turned a picture of a fisherman on a loch into a wild painting adding Mal Firth signature letting the audience believe that our Mal is looking at his painting, thus adding a frame to it as it makes a believable (please pretend) outlook on Mals love of life and paintings...
Had fun doing this picture...Now its 9pm and i got to go supermarket...
Wonderful pic, Mal... Nice to see you "up close."
I thought this one was an ideal BW candidate. I used the "Quick Yellow-Green" (filter) effect that's described among Glenn Mitchell's great tutorials and action downloads here:
Navigate to BW Conversions.
And a sketch version...
I was inspired by the results Mal got from Photoshop's Chalk and Charcoal effect, so that's where I started.
I used layer masks to combine the results of various sketch / chalk / charcoal-type filters and plugins. See the layers palette snapshot for which filters were used on each layer.
