  • Creative interpretations: Flowers - Tulips in the Shade

    Kind of a moody picture, don't you think?

    You're right--it's a great play of light and shadow. Lucis art and some texture.

      The door handle bugged me so I removed it. Ran Angled strokes twice, once at 5,5,3 and the second time at 85,5,3. Added texture, frame, and watermark.

        Cheryl I'll have to get me those Lucisart filters! Nice!

        Mine is a combo of PMart Gallery hand drawing, VP pointillism, and a couple other things.

          I can see I should have framed my submission--it really makes a big differnce. Nice drop shadow effect C.

          Amy--lovely pastels. The pointillism really added a nice effect.

              Very nice creations so far, gang. You're definitely getting into the Spring spirit.

              RE: "PMart Gallery hand drawing"
              That's a new one on me. Can you post a link to wherever you found it.

                PM Art Gallery comes as plugins or a stand alone program. Stand alone has a couple more filters.

                  Two copies in XaraX - larger copy 75% transparent blended with a 10 step blend to the smaller non transparent copy.

                  2nd image cloned picture and flipped clone horizontally, made into a Xara brush and applied to a circle.

                    Lots of beautiful work here!

                    For mine, I increased saturation, ran Xero-Lineart, and then texturized the background.

                      The other day Greg said he was inspired while chowing down on a pizza, so I thought I'd give it a go. Sure goos up the keyboard, though.

                      This is a mishmash of layers (again), including:
                      * Find Edges (darken) for line detail.
                      * Smart Blur/Edges Only (inverted) + multiple applications of Stylize > Diffuse > Ansiotropic alternated with Unsharp Mask (more line detail)
                      * Virtual Painter Collage, with the black lines lifted out and put on a separate layer. (Set the foreground color to black and Select > Color Range will create the selection. Layer > Layer by cut separates the black from the pretty colors.) Used Dust and Scratches on what was left of the color to soften the edges a bit.
                      * Duplicated this layer and applied Virtual Painter Watercolor and set the blend mode to Exclusion.
                      * Used layer masks on the Find Edges, Smart Blur/Edges only, and isosated Collage black lines to blend in the edge detail. I was almost finished with the pizza so it was time to finish up.
                      * Used a Hue/Saturation adjustment layer to crank up the saturation and added a white and black stroke border.

                      I wonder what this will look like to me in the morning?

                          Welcome to RetouchPRO, kiska. Your soft, delecate touch works well on this one. Thanks for sharing your creativity.
