This is another image created like the “Majestic Lion”, using threshold method. I really enjoy creating this kind of image. I just love the play of black and white and the insinuation of shapes that is created.
I was browsing the web for Photoshop tutorials and I came across this image treatment. The tutorial is on youtube and it is done by logongod I really liked it and decided I wanted to try it. The image that the tutorial used was a portrait so I dug into my files and found this one of my daughter and her son. I might like to try something like this on a photo of something other than a portrait and see what can be accomplished.
I used the process that was in the tutorial and added a couple of my ideas. I added a gradient to the background. The gradient was the same color used in the text of the image. I distorted and blurred the background and gave a torn border to the image. The used words that I associate with my daughter and grandson. I hope you enjoy!
This digital painting is of a photo I took while visiting my son in Norway. The scene is in the Maihaugen Open Air Museum in Lillehammer, Norway. Amazing how this picture can bring both joy and sadness. I think that is why I painted it. Missing my son today, thats the sad part. Remembering the fun we had, thats the joyful part.
