Spent too long in Painter with this...mainly used Oils/Details Oils Brush 15. Think I used a camel brush on the cat. The bg was done in PSP.

I love this photo.
Gorgeous Painter work as usual, Neve. I did this one in PSP & PS, made a line drawing overlay and then used Dry Brush, crosshatch, & Watercolor filters on the lower layer and finally a mask frame and sandstone texture.

"Dreaming of Home"

So many steps, experimented a lot. This image made me think about how lonely and homesick our troops must be at times.

Usual image prep: adjusted levels, hue and saturation, and added a slight buzz. Then I ran Mike Finn's PopArtist, and used the Ansiotropic layer as my base image.

Ran Picasso's Last Word several times. Used the history brush to bring back the soldier and the cat part way. Then added a solid color adjustment layer, and painted on the mask with a watercolor brush.

I thought the last step would be to add texture, but when I faded the texture using hard light, I liked the result. So I kept it, and added texture to that.

I think that's all.

Didn't do much to it really. I tried to give more focus to the man's face and the kitten without making it so obvious.

Curves, levels, and selective color adj. layers on man and kitten only.
Linked and Merged.
Seperated everything but the man and foreground and blurred the background portion of it slightly.
Used Filter->Paint Daubs ( I think? ) with high detail and smallest brush on the seperated selection layers so as to minimize the detail of the wall and rear soldier.

As always, this is so fun to participate in. Some results are better than others, but it's all a process.
