Once again, The Eyes Have It ...
I have been asked to show what I do to arrive at my pictures so for awhile I will add a description at the end of each post just to give an idea. It is hard to keep up the flow of the work when I am stopping to write, so there may be times that I miss a step or put things in the wrong order. The idea is to just get a feel of the things you can do with a photo that will make it artistic and yours :) Enjoy
Starting with the first picture , I cropped, then filter Adjustment/ posterize. I cropped again to get the eye and used filter sketch/comic then Enhance/color adjust. Used filter Distort/extrude.
Bring in the second picture, Artistic filter/ Cut Out. Add extruded eye to each side using flip horizontal under Image/Rotate. Filter Texture Craquelure @ 74% Add pdpa texture Sky Love @ 82%, change to orange with Enhance/color adjust. Used Mask/brush @ 4% oppacity to bring out some detail. Crop and use Artistic Filters until I get what I want. There is much more that could be done. I could use blending filters or even go to editors on line and use what they have to change or enhance. But that can be for another day.
