I can’t believe that it is already the fourth week of May, where did the time go?!
For my fourth submission to the One Four Challenge I have chosen a version of my image that is a combination of sketching and painting…
As with week 3, I was trying out different ways to make the background less distracting, while still having the image have a hand sketched and painted feel.
I tried out a new brush called, “Structure Chaos” from the gps-gimp-paint-studio (click to enlarge)…
Then I used the color picker to get a pretty green and painted the background. I also painted part of the hand with a similar flesh color, and touched up a few feathers on the hummingbird with colors similar to the feathers…
I changed the blend mode to Overlay and reduced the opacity to 74%.
I also changed the opacity on the other layers:
- color overlay 76%
- hard light 46%
- burn 34%
- multiply 44%
Kind thoughts and comments are welcome. 😀
And now for the Poll…
Until next time…
I have joined a month-long photo post-processing challenge called One Four Challenge, hosted by Robyn at Captivate Me. “This challenge is about processing １ image in 4 different ways over 4 weeks.” Every Monday Robyn posts a new version of her photo and challenges us to do the same each week.
