All additions need the texture from the painting to make it blend in.
Np. Nice edit Did you darken his face or did I just not notice. Anyways, his face should match his hands & chest more.
Awesome blending of all elements except the face - it needs color brightness and contrast adjustments to match the hands. You may try another source for the face too, as this one had a hard light and shadows to start with, while the hands show soft light and low contrast
Meybe could be easier to change the hands....
Nice one Wanderer. Hey, I learned a neat trick on aging down a chop, recently. Grab a "cracking paint" source picture. Convert it to black and white. Using the magic wand, select the dark and remove. That will leave you the white highlight. Save that as a layer. Then create a new layer of that highlight and convert it to black. now take both of those layers and off-set each one left and right so that you have shadow on one side and highlight on the other. Then merge both into a new layer and that will give you the crackle layer that you can place and adjust over your manipulated areas. Just erase as necessary and adjust opacity. It's pretty cool for a quick illusion. Hope that is of some use....Cheers
Thank you, everybody. Thank you, Hitspinner. I will try your procedure for next contest. Thank you again. W
