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

Thank you for the pics to play with, I had fun painting the sweet girl--in fact so much fun that I did three.
Like your train skinny...
This is my first post here and it took me a while to work out the upload--hope I'll be quicker next time.:wave:

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.
11-07-2006, 09:54 AM
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?
11-08-2006, 09:13 AM
I was experimenting with brushes, so this may have the feeling of a montage:
11-08-2006, 11:14 PM
You have painted yourself a wonderful puppy... Great job Kristen!!!
11-08-2006, 11:52 PM

Here's my quick rendering of this train photo.
Loooks great, the train looks alive and full of energy that will keep him going for miles and miles, in a blue sky day.
11-10-2006, 05:39 AM
Thank you for the welcome Kristen.
Some nice little puppy paintings from everyone. Here's mine...
11-10-2006, 08:41 AM
TOD.....Terrific rendition of the train! :thumbsup: What program did you use?
HELEN.....Very good job on pups! ;)
11-10-2006, 01:37 PM
Had to try one more on this one. A watercolor.
11-10-2006, 01:43 PM
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.
11-10-2006, 06:53 PM
Love the watercolour, Tod that is great info..:)
Going to play some more..:)
11-10-2006, 09:26 PM
Created on a Palm using TealPaint software.
11-11-2006, 07:12 AM

Helen, that is a fantastic puppy!
Magoo, another great train!

11-11-2006, 10:28 AM
ARTEST...It's amazing what you can do on those palms! :rolleyes:
11-12-2006, 06:35 AM
Here's my effort at the train. painter 8, sargent brush.
11-12-2006, 07:07 AM

That was fun!!
11-12-2006, 07:45 AM
Barry, your train is a wonderful rendition!
Very nice manip JJ... has the feel of looking at it thru a heat wave.
11-12-2006, 07:56 AM
Thanks Bree, I am tempted to paint it..physically..;)
11-12-2006, 08:46 AM
Thanks Bree, there are some great pics here, it's lovely to see the differing approaches.
11-12-2006, 11:36 AM
BARRY.....Excellent job! You provide a realistic feeling of speed.
11-12-2006, 12:41 PM
Looked like y'all were having such fun with the train challenge, so had to give it a try. Haven't done any manips in a while... that WAS fun! :)
11-12-2006, 04:52 PM
Gosh, it's fun to see how many different looks can be extracted from this! :thumbsup:

Another watercolor for this excellent image.
11-14-2006, 02:27 PM
LOVE it, Magoo! :clap: :clap: :clap: It really does look like watercolor. How did you do it?
11-14-2006, 07:59 PM
Skinny, thanks. I did history brush on it (my first time using it) and followed up with dry brush.
11-15-2006, 11:26 AM
Thanks, Magoo. :rolleyes: Very interesting.
11-18-2006, 03:29 PM

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.
