Many interesting works from this pic.


I Switched my mode to grayscale.
Adjusted levels.
Adjusted threshold.
Created mask layer and painted out what I did not want.
Merged visible.
Changed mode to tritone, left the first box black, added different shades of red to the other two and adjusted all three.
Unsharp mask.

The background is just a layer filled with a color selected from the image and a noise pattern added with an overlay blend.

Merge visible again and add a layer style>bevel.



This is fun stuff.

Acrylic.

Still my usual technique (Pixel Trash, Impressionist, and GIMP Bumpmap). Texture provided by a Script-fu called Clothify with adjusted opacity.

12/26/05

Just decided to add a silhouette too; used Potrace vector conversion technique to create this image (saved in PNG format using Inkscape and additionally compressed using Irfanview).

"Introspection"

My profile try. Just experimenting in Photoshop. Started with high pass, curves, gradient map. Duped image and moved on copied layers with reduced opacities for dupe profiles. Finished with halftone filter.
Freaky, don't you think?

I think the results of your experiments is thought provoking -- moody, if you will. Your approach was very unique when compared to all the others that preceded it.

Unique is a good thing. Well done.

Heavy guassian blur in screen mode, and then crosshatch seemed to provide a nice finish

Thank you Danny.
I went back through all the different renditions to find a favorite, but could not fix on one - I liked them all so well. Great variations.
