Love this image - like I said before, seems that everything works well onthis one.
Here's a wood carving (does anyone have another method - I didn't find one).
- Standard PS wood pattern;
- Applied Distort>Displace using a saved greyscale image;
- Added a High-pass filtered layer with Linear Light 11%
Great vision on this. I hadn't even considered this type of effect. I'm not aware of another way to meld the texture with the contours. You pulled it off brilliantly.
Ran PS: Distort: Glass - 7, 7, Frosted, 100%.
Ran PS: Blur: Smart Blur: 100, 100, High, Edge Only.
Ran PS: Stylize: Diffuse: Anis.
Set layer blending to Pin Light.
Made new layer filled with black.
Ran PS: Texture: Texturizer - Canvas, 100%, 8, Bottom Left.
Set layer blending to Luminosity and lowered Opacity to 27%.
Duped the Stamped layer and set the layer blending to Lighten.
Thanks for the tut.
I downloaded a trial of Painter 9 and had no idea how to use it.
Your tut. showed me the clone source thing.
This was fun!!
Now I really, really, really really want a tablet.
Glikster !! Glad you enjoyed it, if you do get a tablet, you will definately benefit from the added sensitivity that it brings.
Great Effort !! Well Done ! I will point out one thing though, always remember that stroke direction if very important, if you stroke in a way that is not natural to the flow of the subject, the eye will catch it, but you have done a worthy effort. I for one am looking forward to seeing more of your painter creations.
Mine was done using the following:
Flat Oil Cloner, this time doubling the size of the image and increasing the resolution to 300 and using a very small brush size to try to capture as much detail as possible. This guy has a lot of character and so i wanted to keep it.
The addition of the hat was something i added as i felt he had a 'Bogart' look about him.
Photoshop was used for the correction of colour, levels and curves and other minor adjustments.

Gklister, great effort and even better to have another newbie on board to learn about painter along with us hopefully! It is fun to try right away because you get the most amazing first result.
Very nice rendition Axle. I'm still trying to find time to make a start on your tut...!
