This did me good. It forced me to select just a few details to "describe" the train. :cool:

Hi all,

My first post here. Looks like some fun.

Photoshop art history technique that I often start with (tut on my site http://martindigital.com), then several layers where I paint in details and add color overlays.

Thanks so much Ceu... and I really like the technique you used for your puppy, and that golden warmth adds an antique feel to it.

Joe, Welcome to digital art... looking forward to seeing more of your artwork. Great rendition on the portrait!

Bev, That is great, it does make her look grown up! Very nicely done.

Thanks Sara, I love your little puppy, too- the scene has a richness and he looks so contented.

SARA.....Great work! You do such a good job of distinguishing the important elements of a ubject and not getting yourself bogged down in too much detail.

BEV.....Nice! She's obviously found a good sun block...:D

JO.....Excellent! I'm eager to get to your site and learn all about your technique. :thumbsup:

CEU.....Love your version! It look like watercolor.

BREE.....You ACED this one! He does look tired doesn't he?

Thanks, Skinny for you kind comments.
I used a Mac-Based Photoshop CS application. Selected just the tain. Then inverted the selection. Put a motion blur in the direction I wanted. This gave me a since of motion in the background. Deselected everthing and selected the shape of the smoke with a 12-15 pixel feather, then put a motion blur on just that selection. I then selected just the sky with another feathering of 15 pixels and air brushed it white. Now everything is showing motion except the train and the tracks. I went into filter and under artistic, selected Dry Brush. Fooled with the setting until I got this look. The whole thing took less then ten minutes.

Wow! Some great digi-paintings here. I've been too busy (burning out another printer printing the last of my 2007 calendars) to join the fun, but I've enjoyed seeing all your renditions.

Welcome to JJ (laudesan), who normally frequents the watercolor forum. JJ, I didn't know your artistic talents included digital painting. Well done.
