I have to say this one does not speak to me as much as some of the others in the series. I am not sure what it is, but it does not have quite the "pop" of the original image. I like it, though.

Very cool. Great idea for a painting.

Jon-- as always, thanx for commenting. I think this drifted too close to realistic to work.. The painting got muddled. When I repaint the thumbnail I'll repost.

Nice job. I have PS 7 and can't find the filter (?) that turns pics into line drawings--I think I have it somewhere but where?

Any help?

Anthony-- I wish there was such a filter! There is one way to create line drawings on the computer that sometimes works...
enter original phot:

CFCA-019--2009-10-21-DawsonvilleGa--1955Chrysler300Daytona
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

go to filters>>Stylize>>Glowing edges.
bottom left of screen go to 100%
Adjustments for this phot:
edge width=6, edge brightness=13, smoothness=15.

each phot will need it's own setting to get the "effect" desired
save each step with it's own label!>>>results below:

go to Filters>>Adjustments (first choice) >> Invert

CFCA-019-F2
-------------------------------------------------------------------

CTL + ALT + B, this pulls up "Convert to B&W"
scroll to 'newspaper'
increase contrast to desired level (about 80% in this case)
save each step with it's own label!>>>results below:

At this point you can erase extraneous lines with eraser tool, or fill it in with paint bucket, or go lots of ways to create digital manipulations.

I actually drew all the original line drawings in the posts, then photo'd it.
Hence the inaccuracies in the drawing.

But it is my drawing, not a digital manip.
I often use this slow computer process to create the bones of a drawing,
then print it off for a painting reference.
More accuracy, less soul, no less artistry
and any distortion in the phot will still be in the b&w print.

hope that helps

Just tried it--it works pretty good! thanks Greggo--and it only took about 5 aspirins to do it! :-)

I am liking these two! I think it is partly due to the energy in the lightning-like movements of the neon style lines and patterns in the upper right corner.

Thanx Jon-- I intend to try to paint like this--just saw an article on some acrylic black light paint and phosphorescent paints that may work:

http://www.artistsnetwork.com/articles/art-demos-techniques/go-for-the-glow-luminescent-acrylic-paints-and-tom-bacher

from the Artist's Magazine. Great resource for ideas and products...

Interesting link, Greg. I recall luminescent posters and black lights in my college days, but had not seen this artist before with his use of luminescent paints, thank you for sharing it.

I have subscribed to Artists Magazine for around 7 years now, it is how I found this website. I keep all the old issues, and often refer to them.
