here's mine...

I followed Steve Trimoon's directions from this thread
http://www.retouchpro.com/forums/photo-based-art/3785-tutorial-trimoon-how-i-do-my-digital-art.html

I never even thought of approaching it that way, thank you!!

Oh, and I used Danny's Imp. settings for the base img. One BSOB detailed A and one Linear Brush D.

I haven't been posting much because I decided I want to work more on my drawing skills. I've been doing pencil drawings and experimenting with using photoshop (still with mouse, alas) as a drawing/painting medium.

Thought I owed some of you an explanation.

glad to hear you're not disappearing and fine effect you got there

CJ - that turned out just great; i love especially how that effect worked on the brighter one
Ro - just great
jaykita - love the soft, bright yet saturated colour
philbach - cool
keepemcomin - neat idea

I have "horsey" friends and they thought I should remove all of the distracting background and concentrate on the two fine horses in the foreground. So that is what I did.

I applied everything except the texture before I began to paint, then merged visible, created a new layer above that with a mask applied and painted over the mask to reveal the horses underneath.

Believe it or not, the hardest part was trying not to have hard, crisp edges that made the horses look cutout (especially the part where the mane was). So ignore my feeble attempt in the mane area. I'll tweak the real picture in time, just not now.

After all was painted in, I then created a 50% gray layer with the texture and overlayed it, faded it to my liking and done.

That is often one of the hardest parts to handle, and to my eyes -- you've handled it just right. Your emphasis on the horses is an excellent choice also. Good work! But this isn't surprising, since your work is typically good!

Sort of an engraving technique involving buzz, PMAG hand drawing, cutting and pasting, grayscaling, lightening and darkening..you know the drill.

I refused to post the full image terribly reduced, so the full size image can be seen at http://www.mcwhirterfamilyofmercer.com/horses.jpg

I've just posted here a detail from the larger image.
