  • Creative interpretations: Airplane - Air France Jet

    Although sepia toned, I thought this had potential.

    Don't forget your seatbelt!

    I dunno! Can't remember

    I've tried to upload an image several times (about 88kb). Get message it's....'in progress.'

    Well, Danny, you know ALL the secret passageways. Thanks

      How to fix...

      Click User CP above (top left).
      * Near bottom left... see Miscellaneous
      * Click Attachments. This will list all files you have attached and all that are "in flight, but not complete." Kill the in progress one and try it again.

        Glad to help. I knew cuz I'd stumbled down that path myself before.

        Great creation here... fun to cut loose and not keep track now and again, isn't it?

        - - - - - - - - -

        Mine:

        * Duplicated Background
        * Increased contrast with levels.
        * Smart Blur/Edge Only - experimented with settings.
        * Ctrl + I (to invert)
        * Stylize > Diffuse > Anisotropic
        * Unsharp Mask to give lines a little definition
        * Duplicated this layer and set blend mode to Multiply (gave more body to lines)
        * Added a layer mask
        * Added a layer below this one and filled with white.
        * Back to layer mask on layer above... painted with black to get rid of unwanted lines
        * Merged these two layers together.
        * Changed blend mode to Multiply
        * Turned off the sketch layer.

        * Created a new layer above Background
        * With brush tool, started painting (100% flow, 100% opacity) browns and grays (plane body), blues and grays (sky area), greens (foreground "grass"), a few yellows (here and there)
        * When layer was painted, Select > All, Edit > Define Pattern ("plane colors 1")
        * Applied an Image > Adjustments > Posterize command to get some funky colors and followed with Noise > Median (to soften transitions)
        * Again, Select > All, Edit > Define Pattern ("plane colors 2")
        * Select > None
        * Edit > Fill > White. This will be a background
        * Created two blank layers ("Paint 1" and "Paint 2") between the white background and sketch layer.
        * With "Paint 2" active, selected Pattern Stamp Tool
        * From the preset menu chose Wow Watercolor Lg preset (see this thread for more info)
        * Lowered opacity to about 30%
        * Started painting colors. As I did, I varied opacity and brush width
        * Clicked on "Paint 1" to make it active and selected pattern "plane colors 1" from the Patterns menu
        * Painted on this layer here and there for some different colors
        * Added a stroke frame and saved. Time to get the kids at school!

        Probably not a result Air France would make into a poster, but it was fun!

          I really like both of the versions so far.

          Kiska, yours is dramatic and bold, and really eye catching. Great job.

          Danny, I'm duly impressed. You achieved the strong, clean lines I try for and often give up on. I like the blending of those lines with the free flow of the paint. I think I'll try the line thing soon.

          Up, up and away...

            I was trying for a vector approach using the Air France company color scheme.
            1. Cutout 5.4.3
            2. Poster 5.7.3
            3. Used color replace tool and then hue/saturation to get the colors that I needed in the places I wanted.
            4. A lot of touch up work (i.e. straightening up lines and coloring in where needed).
            I wish I had a font that matched theirs but just ended up coloring in the letters (not happy with that part).
            Thanks Danny

                Brilliant solution. Sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do!
