Creative Expressions #295

Hi, everyone! CCat managed to snag me with one of his claws so here are this week's images. They are all stock images, and have been resized where necessary. Have fun!

Patriotism is not waving a flag, it is living the ideals

I want to retire to the Isle of Sodor and ride the trains.

Hey! I haven't even finished fixing the plane yet! Why did the pilot eject so fast anyway?

This started off as...

...this
Base image (using PS):

Created a new image with that sunrise/sunset effect using a filter from Filter Forge

Took the Liberty image and erased the background, creating a cutout layer

Put a slight white glow around the cutout and placed that layer on top of the sunrise one, and flattened the image.

Applied the Redfield Perfectum filter to smooth things out a bit.

To create the top image, I ran it through some additional filters to add color and to simplify the image. Then I added a thin black frame.

This second image removes some of the background color irregularities of the first one and changes the emphasis of the image from the figure to the entire scene, IMO. I liked the way the color hues balanced out.

Four layers:
 Virtual Painting 5 drawing filter layer
 Alien Skin Snap Art 2 stylize filter layer
 manual color changer layer (selected image areas)
 manual airbrush tool layer

I think that was about it (best as I recall ).

There are some truly original artists in these CE threads but I'll wager to say that a psychiatrist would have to rewrite the text books if he/she ever saw some of these creations.

"And the wild winds of fortune
Will carry me onward,
Oh whithersoever they blow.
Whithersoever they blow,
Onward to glory I go! "

Have fun removing this earbug.
