    From Photo to Painting

    Thought some of you might like a peek over my shoulder at how I'm combining photography and painting. I start with a photograph, either one I have taken myself or, in this case, a stock photo I downloaded from the web. (The first image) Then I load the photograph into PhotoShop where I clean it up, bump the colors, and run it through whatever filter will get as close to the effect I want as possible. (The second image) Finally, I import the image into ArtRage, both as a layer and as a reference, and start overpainting. (The third image)

    The next thing I want to try is masking and combining images with effects.

    Sandra, it's just in time to save my freshly seeded grass. SCP, now I have to come up with something as cool as your critters. I'm still basically copying.

    Neat affect on the result, painting strokes sure made it quite more interesting than the original.
