  • Girl and a Duck

    Here is a pic of my neice and a duck. I thought it was a bit different so I took it on as a photo-art project. I used the new PostworkShop on it. Have fun with it if you want to. I would love to see some others.

    A PostworkShop concoction with some GIMPy things added. Still figuring out this program Dak; thanks for the play.

      This one's all PostworkShop. It's a blend of etch and Manga dots.

        Nice work Dak and Lyle. I really like the work PWS does, I'm very tempted to buy it but I'll have to ask the boss first.I used Lucis and smudging on mine. Thanks for the play.

          Those look really good! My niece will get a kick out seeing them. Yes, PWS is going to take some time learning. I haven't tried out the Node feature yet, have you Lyle?

            In a pastlife, I've used both Simulink and Labview, so I know the power of node programming Dak. Yes; I pretty much start out with layers then go to nodes to do some finesse work. Actually created a few custom (maybe Sophomoric; lol) styles too. Not hard to get the hang of it Dak; fun actually.

              I had no idea where to go with this one but here's what I ended up with.

                  Fran & Peter: both nice renderings.

                  This one really pushed me outside my comfort zone. I don't normally do people if I can avoid it. <Smile> Played with this in DAP to mask out distracting background. It worked but then I had too much dead space. So while doing post processing in PSPv9 to add contrast & texture I also cropped it down

                  Thanks for looking.

                    Gene, you should go outside your comfort zone more often. I like your version -- a lot!!

                      You are much too kind, Fran, but thank you. <Smile>

                        About as central as you can get, Gene -- Syracuse area. Let's go Orange!

                          Beautiful picture. I was trying for a softer look with focus on features.

                            Fran: Only ever been to Syracuse once back in 1970 and then only for an hour or so. Hoping to relocate to an area that will be a bit closer than I am now next year. When that happens, maybe I'll get down that way to better explore the area.

                            Had another play with Morgan and her pet.

                              Hello everybody... I've been going through some weird stuff lately...like can't get my mojo going.Ugh, and it's been getting more & more difficult to mentally create new paths in my artwork. The images you offer to us just leave me stumped. It's got to be a phase I'm going through, I just wish it would hit the road already.

                              Dak, I loved this sensitive capture of your niece. Basic retouching, skin, eyes, mouth,hair, eliminate background, ducky got a retouch, too, followed by a texture layer, dodged to highlight Morgan's features.

                              I did feel the need to work on this image but perhaps I should revisit it when my muse returns.

                              Everyone else, you inspire. Thanks.
