White stallion

Have still been giving "painting" my pictures a go. Any thoughts would be very appreciated. Thanks!

Re: White stallion

PSA, Very KEWL!.. And your painting technique/workflow was what?

I kept looking for the Unicorn Horn!

Keep up the good work!

Re: White stallion

Thank you all! I've really been just using the smudge tool. I did have to turn the one ear around and saturated the eyes a bit, but that was as far as that went. How fun to see all of your different takes on the picture!
Hadn't thought of a unicorn, looks cool.
Love the cut-out, amica999, how did you do that, if I may ask?

Re: White stallion

Thank you, PSA, glad you like it.
Now let me recall: while in RAW I adjusted the exposure and pumped up the clarity a bit, in PS, I used the Shadow/Highlight adjustment to get rid of the dark shadow on the nose, masked out the rest. Duplicated layer and ran Filter-Artistic-cutout with settings 7,4,2 on the pic, applied a black mask and painted with Peter's brush - well sort of - (http://www.retouchpro.com/forums/tur...tml#post218611) and dapped with white at an opacity of 25% on the mask. Finally sharpened with USM values about 100,1,0...but not sure That's all
