Art History Brush, very addicting

I have been playing with this for a little while. This is kind of a first attempt at posting in the forum. Hopefully I will do this right and post a few more.

Re: Art History Brush, very addicting

Kliph there are a few of us who agree with you about the ahb being addictive (Just wait till you get a brush list as long as your arm )

You have mastered the brush very well

And yes you posted your image great so no excuses now about not posting

Re: Art History Brush, very addicting

I think the word "master" is very kind indeed! My wife thinks that I am crazy sitting at my desk and doing this AHB stuff, but, I enjoy it. I really like this pond scene. The original picture was taken at Ceta Canyon which is in the Texas panhandle.

Hi kliph,
I know exactly how you feel about how addictive it is, There are certain members of this forum I have to blame for this ( they know who I mean)
Very nice work.
Regards
Barry.

Alex, thanks for the kind words, I visited your site and I am impressed! How did you get the sketch to look so 3d in the Bojarsky picture?

Re: Art History Brush, very addicting

Here is one that I thought turned out well. I have been using multiple layers and then sharpening at the end.

Re: Art History Brush, very addicting

kliph, thanks for your comments. For my sketches I always do the next way: first copy/paste background and makes "line pic", then paste another copy of background on top with line burn mode and curves for lightening and some different filters like crosshatch. For Boyarski it was impressionist pencil.
