  • Creative interpretations: Bountiful Fruit Still Life

    Since Thanksgiving 2003 is this week, I was looking for something along those lines and found this photo by Baris.

    This was done using Photobrush and the coloured pencil option, I find this gives a much better effect than the PS coloured pencil.

      This is line art watercolor that relies on smart blur. The tutorial can be found on http://www.dwphotoshop.com/photoshop...watercolor.php

        Xaran:

        You're right... the PhotoBrush version of colored pencil has a lot going for it. I much prefer the result on this image over the Photoshop version.

        Bob:

        Thanks for posting that tutorial link. I've seen ones similar to it, but this one has a unique twist. I added the link to the "photo-art tutorials" thread.

        - - - - - - -

        On mine I was just messing around with no particular preconceived notion of where I was going. This was an example of a "happy accident" (aka: [i]Accidental Art.[i]).

        Rather than explain all the steps, a screenshot of the Layers Palette attached to the next post tells the story, with the exception that I added to the canvas size so emphasize the stroke frame. Blend modes (if not normal) noted in parens.

        In retrospect layer D. could be eliminated.

        Layer E. was used to restore color using a Layer Mask.

              Weirdo Still Life with Fruit

              A bit different. Using PSP8

              Effects-Color balance, tungsten balar to give it the blueish tones

              Effects-Artistic effects=Contours-Custom 1 with minimalised features and a light color of black instead of white. Detail at 8 and intensity at 52.

              Auto Contrast enhancement

              Softened.

                  haven't done one of these in a while and thought I'd join in -- using Corel Photopaint here...

                  I duped the background to a new layer and ran a Plaster Wall texture on it and then added a Lighting effect of Texturize Light Top Left. I also dropped the transparency to 95%. I also used a Tone Curve to brighten this up a bit.

                  I duped the background again, placed this layer on top of the other and ran an Underpainting texture on it and dropped the transparency to 25%. I also ran a Tone Curve on this layer to brighten it up a bit.

                  I duped the background yet again, placing this layer on top. I ran a Watercolor art stroke on it, dropped the transparency to 70%, and made the merge mode of this layer to If Lighter.

                  I duped the background for the last time, again placing this new layer on top, and ran a Pen And Ink/Stippling texture on it, reduced the transparency to 45%, and made the merge mode of the layer to be Logical AND.

                  Finally, I duped the background and clipmasked the center portion out so I would have just the frame.

                    Fooling around w/ Painter8 some more, this time with the chalk cloner. Tried the Blender>GrainyBlender on the background, but didn't like it much on this image. I used the Pens>Thick&ThinPen3 to delinate some of the edges (hand drawing). Increased contrast with Curves in Elements2 as a final step.

                      Good try again with Painter Mark! I think we'll all be experimenting for a long time to come - it's the only way to get to know those brushes and what they're capable of achieving. I haven't enjoyed working with anything that says "grain" so far. I guess a penny will drop in that regard eventually...but don't hold your breath LOL.

                      This painting reminds me, because of the dark background, of old 16th century European paintings.

                        Interesting Fruit....

                        Mark - That is awesome !!! Simply Awesome ! You like Painter huh ?


                        I have been trying out a few ideas i was working on for an alternative method of sharpening and came across this nice effect, which i will work into an action.

                        It appear that by changing the blending mode can produce some rather nice results.

                          Thanks Neve & Axle!

                          Neve, while this tool has grain, it's not very strong. A little pressure on the tablet takes most of it out. I too like how the background came out. It was about the last part I did and really made the image come together.

                          Axle, you're way too kind. I think my Painter images have been a bit "ham fisted" compared to yours. You have a very smooth, elegant touch. As for your posting, I especially like the 'HidingOriginal' result. Was the Photocopy layer simply than filter run on a copy of the original image?
                          BTW, it looks like your Painter tutorial might be generating some extra sales for Corel. I bet if they bundled it with their trial version, they'd win over much of the 'non-artist' crowd. You should ask for a commission.

                            I couldn't survive without blending modes, so far all used in PSP8.1 though.
                            My grandson took over at my compute and only left this morning so hopefully I can get some serious painting done starting in the morning.
