You dont need expansive Lucis to achieve the same effect.

Re: The demystification of dave hill! let's all he

Aleksman71, it's hard to tell from the small example whether you duplicated the LucisArt effect or not, but it's possible you're headed in that direction.

But remember, the "Dave Hill" effect is but one blip on the continuum of what LucisArt (especially the upcoming LucisArt Pro is capable of. You can go from sand-dry exaggerated embossing to a soft and ethereal dreamlike effect with quick flicks of the two sliders.

Out of curiosity, how long is it taking and what process is being used to manually attempt to duplicate this particular Dave Hill/LucisArt effect?

isik55, that's nice work, and a cool combination of plug-ins that compliment each other.

Re: The demystification of dave hill! let's all he

Can anyone close this stupid thread ? it's been months already and this has been any possible demonstration of mediocrity. People should focus on creativity rather than brainlessly copy a look or another. worst if that concerns a "B" class photographer...

Why? Just because you don't like it why should others that are fans of this ubiquitous look suffer and have this thread closed?

I myself don't like the look, but don't mind reading about things people share and contribute here.

If this thread bothers you "that" much then try not to read it instead of being rude! It's that simple.

Re: The demystification of dave hill! let's all he

No,No! Please do not close this thread! I enjoy reading about it and seeing what people do with the effect. I have Lucis Art and I plan to get the upgrade when available.

I cannot understand the criticism, since it is no more that another way of seeing! Are there people out there that rage against features in Photoshop like layers, brush dynamics and the art history brush as well? What is seeing, if you can't use tools to give you a differing view?
