Re: Yannis

Hello everybody,

i saw this forum by searching through natural painting programs.
Very impressive paintings - my respect.
Each one good in its style.

I have some questions and would be glad if you could answer me :

"It's not plugin, but AHB + Topaz Vivacity."
Ok - i know the Topaz Filters - but what is AHB ? I guess NOT Captain AHB, lol...

And a question to Janet - what programs did you use to do your version ?
Looks amazing to me !

Ok - this was my first post ever - i decided to join this forum because of your Yanni-Variations in here ;-D
Excuse my english - i am german.

Greetings from Stuttgart, Germany

Enzo

I only used Photoshop. I cut out the background and placed a layer below, then filled the new, blank layer with white. The rest was just dodge and burn, hue/sat, curves, and sharpening.

Thanks for the ego boost. I'm glad you liked it.

Re: Yannis

Hello again,

thank you very much for your informations, Janet and Palms !
A very good place to improve my skills in here.
I used to paint in former times, but the last years i did painting skins of aircraft for flightsimulator and sceneries for MS FlightSim.
But now most of the things i wanted to work in these category are finished and i need a new challenge.
So i re-animated my wacom and the old painter-pro from corel and will work on my basic skills first.

CU next time ! Greets from germany -

Enzo
