Hey, Danny, think I'm going to save this as my "test" image - seems like everything works on this one!!
- Combined three cutout layers with different settings and a aniso'd outline;
- Combined a high-pass image with a contour sketch.

Luch time's over - gotta work now.

Wanted to increase the wear and tear of life on the seas. And perhaps put a little more pain and knowledge in the eyes.

Channel Mixer
A bit of Dodge/Burn
Hightlights/Shadows (CS) to lighten
Antique Stipple Engravingv.2 atn

Cheers

That's all folks.
glikster, you describe "and ran Impressionist: Ink: Spiderweb". I am using PS7, and there is so much I need to learn. How do I do this, or where do I find it? I really like your work, and I wanted to try it. I am still learning the power of Channels, and what they can do. Your assistance would be great.

Thanks,
Karyn

ok....

Well, the first question is do you have the Impressionist plugin for Photoshop?
I believe it works with PS7. PM Danny if you don't already have the plugin. If you do have (or once you get it and install it) I give the name of the setting I use when I leave it at the default setting. When I make customizations to the settings, I usually try to document them.

A great subject with great interpretations going on here. I started with my oil painting technique then ran amuk:

1st image: Decolored the Oil. Ran Chalk&Charcoal then Posterize
2nd Image: Decolored the Oil. Copied. Chalk&Charcoal on the Copy. Copied layer set to Difference, 82% Opacity. Merge Down. Levels adjusted. Kind of looks like chalk on a dark chalkboard or dark paper.
3rd Image: Ran Diffuse>Anisotropic on my Oil. Render>3d and pasted onto a shaker. Invented a vaguely sea color background.
4th Image: A Painter8 effort cloning off the original image then darkened with curves and texture added in Elements2.
