Some Illustrations - or - Fun with CS3
Posted By: Rickster, 03-11-2008, 01:12 PM

Did a little 'doodling' with CS3 this morning ...

Here is what I started with, an old Buick Eight taken last year with my K10D in very stark sunlight - I think it's a 1952 Buick Eight Roadmaster ...


and here is the result of about 30 minutes of 'doodling'


I like the result. Looks like an illustration from the 50's

Anybody else have some 'illustrations' to share here?

I love it, this turned out great. You nailed the effect that you were going for. I hope you will post some more in the near future.

Thank you for the kind words. Here's another example. One of Harley Earl's great designs ...

Thank you.

I start with a very heavy noise reduction applied more than once, then some tone mapping via shadow and highlight control. Basically then just fiddle with the image until I get the effect I want. I do not use actions so each image will be a unique expression. I hope!

That's all? No fancy filters for painting effects? Very Impressive, I am even more a novice with Photoshop than I am with photography.

Love the effect ... if you never knew it was a photo ... you'd think this was a work of art.
which it still is.

All right...where's the step-by-step tutorial? This is too good to not teach the rest of us. That is one fantastic image. Betcha it would look great printed out on some canvas paper.

Didn't I see those in one of the In-n-Out burger joints?

I have a mate here in Darwin Australia that likes old cars and loves what you've done with those 2 pics. He has a 1950s Holden that he'd like to see done up this way. Do you want to have a go at it?? PM me and I'll try and get a high res image of it emailed to you. I can think of quite a few photos that I've got kiching around that could do with your approach so it's made me consider trying to have more of a play with photoshop.

PS> Well done mate

That is an incredible effect, I'll echo everyone else. This is truly art.
