Experimenting with Deep Paint Digital Artist

This was done while experimenting using Deep Paint Digital Artist. It was very different than anything I've done before.

See: http://www.retouchpro.com/forums/photo-art-resources/10245-software-deep-paint-digital-artist.html

Two layers:
* Bottom background: Clone tool - Dry Material - Chalk Flat. Just kind if daubbed here and there for an underpainting effect.
* Top detail: Brush tool - Cloner Ex - Pencil cloner

Enjoy your time away from the asylum, Tood!

Very interesting Danny. You said it was different than anything you had tried before. How different? The results are unique.

Different in terms of "outcome" and the detail layer.

The "underpainting below" was quite a bit less detailed and has different texture than what I've done before. And since I can't "sketch" worth beans (still mousing ), the detail pencil layer was treading on thin ice for yours truly!

How about a pencil sketch? I got rid of the background desaturated the image and used the graphite_2 plugin of the gimp. I played around with the trc curves to get the sketch the way I wanted. The grayscale is a layer under the graphite_2 layer to give some depth. Finally, the color original is at the bottom of the layer stack. I used some masking to let some of the color back into the image for the face and neck.

Nicely done, Tim. One of the best of this type of effect I've seen in some time. You do have the Gimp touch!

Keep 'em coming...

I oversharpened with FocalBlade, and then got rid of excess noise with mild buZZ. Then went over face and neck with different smudge brushes. Adjust color and saturation. Add background (which is a digital backdrop from a collection I bought).

Bravo Andrew! Great painted effect + the background is perfect!

You inspired me again...
* Duplicated background
* Added a layer below that and filled with white
* Back to duplicated background layer: added a layer mask and painted with black to isolate (knockout) subject
* Merged top two layers
* Over sharpened (Unsharp Mask)
* Buzz Simplifier 2 (this rendered some of the interesting color highlights)
* Sharpened again
* Smoothed (smudged) a few places
* Saved/closed
* Opened in Painter 8
* Went over with Blender > Grainy Blender
* Saved/closed
* Opened in Photoshop again
* Duplicated Background
* Sharpened with Unsharp Mask (270,2)
* Added a layer mask and airbrushed black to suppress some areas that needed to be toned down

Thank you Andrew, for sharing your creativity and giving me an idea for a different approach.

~Danny~
