  • Rembrant Wins World Photoshop Title

    Rembrant Wins World Photoshop Title
        • Excellent..... good finish and nice suit
        • Clever chop, though I would never guess Rembrandt in the guy on the right
        • That is because it is Tom Hanks! I didn't have a current photograph of Rembrandt. I think he died before cameras so I found somebody that could act the part Thanks Newsey, Rajeshstar, Pree and 420
        • -Very surprised and very honored. Thanks Doc, eric, Luciano. I wouldn't really know Rembrandt if he knocked on my door but I think he would totally dig chopping.
        • Congratulations Hits!!!! Excellent work!!!
        • Congrats on the gold, Hits! I see it's transformed Tom Hanks now. It'd be very challenging to use the Rembrandt source and blend it with a photo - his technique was very far from photo realism - strong brush strokes and heavy contrast
        • LOL Yeah it would. I circumvented getting into that sort of hair pulling and wisely so. I am not sure what inspired me to use Hank's likeness but I think Cloud Atlas had something to do with it. And as I was milling through tons of faces that might resemble Rembrandt Hanks kept popping up; mainly the eyes are similar. So I tweaked it all to build this modern version

  • Conan O'Brien Portrait by Rembrandt

    Conan O'Brien Portrait by Rembrandt
        • Nice blending but I would keep the original painting colors here. The new vivid colors deviate a lot from the Rembrandt style
        • Try to desaturate head and background in order to match the hand caracteristics.
        • If part of the assignment is to create works that Rembrandt would create today, then he might use a much more vibrant palate since such colors were not available to him back in the day. That was my reasoning in punching up the contrast and color in mine. And since you used a contemporary celebrity I reckon that was your aim? I dig it, just had to give it time to digest
        • I agree with Hitspinner Thought that was the point of the contest
  • A Graceful and Noble Man by Rembrandt

        • omg I was going to do the same thing .. excellent!!
        • Am I missing something? What has changed from the original?
        • Maybe you could put them side by side for comparison PCRDDS.
        • The chin & nose coloring doesn't match the rest.
        • Great minds think alike ladies hahahahaha. Excellent job!!!
        • Thanks, everyone. On this particular chop, the drive was to make it, not to win or place -- and to remind everyone that we are a community made stronger by every one of us. Peace!
