I used Paint Daubs at low settings,Photoshops Gold Effect and Chalk&Charcoal filter.Looking forward to your tutorial Photomaster,I saw the effect applied to the flowers on your site very very nice.

Re: Creative Portraits: Man in Hat

jimjam,

that's kind of interesting. not seen that technique before. sort of minimalist but with all the important elements in a different sort of way.

That's a good one! How long did it take to do that?

What is Photoshop's Gold Effect? It does lend an interesting ambiance to your piece.

Painting took less than an hour. It was just an experiment with the smudge brush rather than an attempt to create a quality piece.

Re: Creative Portraits: Man in Hat

Thanks Kraellin I've been messing around a lot lately trying different ideas.That's one of the reasons I have been lax in keeping notes,I start out just trying things with no specific look in mind.I probably went through 2 or 3 hundred variations with two of the three photos of this man only to judge about 18 worth keeping or working on more to see if they produce anything worth while. Swampy I have Photoshop Elements 2 and it contains Gold Sprinkles on the effects pallette,had to adjust levels to make it really shine.It looks better in the original larger TIFF file of course.I may be wrong but I do believe Gold Sprinkles came with Elements 2 out of the box and is not a plug in.I thought all versions would have everything E 2 does plus a whole lot more .

Re: Creative Portraits: Man in Hat

I just realized I put my picture in the wrong thread. It should have gone into the "Old Man" thread.
