        jaykita:

        Ultimate Paint looks like a pretty cool toy. Your results are excellent.

        Isn't Virtual Photographer a cool plugin? And FREE too! (Click here). The options are varied and very impressive.

          Thought I'd give this a go with my oil mimic. My initial result was too 'scratchy' looking, so I added 2 copies of the original above (one HardLight 36%, the other Luminosity 50%). Finished up with a texture layer and Curves layer to lighten a bit.

            Hi Danny,

            Please find attached my attempt at a Still Life.

            1. Cut out of background
            Inserted a new background and created some "Shafts of light" to light it.
            Created a neutral gray Overlay Layer and painted in some white to lighten the shadows.
            I then copied all of this to a new composite Layer and ran "Virtual Photographer" plug in set to "Glamour".
            Changed the Blend mode to Screen.

            2. I thought the gap between the vase and the bowl was too great so I moved the vase a bit closer.
            Duplicated the Layer and used Gaussian Blur.
            Changed the Blend mode to Screen.
            Used the Render>Lighting filter to illuminate the composition.

            Hope you like them.

            Regards

            Con

              Con, I like both your attempts. For me, this pic has a 70's feel, and the background you chose is perfect. The shafts of light are also very appropriate for this kind of still life. Good job.

                Yes, indeed, I do -- especially the composition and lighting. That's some of the best results I've seen using the Lighting filter.

                ** Keep 'em coming! **

                  Photoshop to move vase behind fruit.

                  Lightened by duplicating layer and screen mode at 50% opacity.

                  Photobrush Watercolour

                  Back to Photoshop and duplicate of original with xero line art in multiply mode to finish.

                    Well, here goes....

                    I Duped the BG.
                    Converted to LAB.
                    Saved Lightness channel as a selection.
                    Converted back to RGB.
                    Created a new layer filled with Black.
                    Made layer mask from Lightness channel selection.
                    Ran Impressionist:Paint:Free Daubs twice on BG copy.
                    Duped BG again and brought it to top of layers.
                    Ran PS:Artistic:Cutout - 5, 2, 2.
                    Ran PS:Stylize Find Edges.
                    Desaturate.
                    Set layer to Soft Light and lower Opacity (about 32%)
                    Duped BG again and brought it to top of layers.
                    Ran PS:Find Edges.
                    Desaturate.
                    invert.
                    some levels adjustment.
                    ran PS:Stylizeiffuse - Anis.
                    Set layer to Lighten and about 30% opacity.
                    stamped visible.
                    ran PS:Texture:Texturizer - Canvas, 135, 5, Bottom Left.
                    Faded to lower opacity.
                    New layer and a made a simple frame by filling a selection and a couple of Layer styles.

                    I hope you like!

                      Well it may have taken a while to "get there," but this is a most creative interpretation.

                      This is an excellent example of how to "push the limits."

                      Thumbs up.

                        Here's a Painter mosaic. They're fun to do and would be a lot more tedious without a tablet & pen.

                          A quick experiment with Photoshop's emboss filter.

                          1. Duplicate Image
                          2. Desaturate new layer
                          3. Apply emboss filter
                          4. Lower opacity to desired amount
                          5. Copy the highlights from the original image, paste on new layer above emboss layer. Change mode to color and adjust opacity.
                          6. Add levels adjustment layer to increase contrast
