A Plethora of Processing

Apps: PicsArt (Android / iOS) and Repix (Android / iOS)

This digital painting started and ended in Photoshop with a long smartphone detour in the middle.

Coming round full-circle, in a plethora of processing.

Texture Tuesday Processing

I took this image of the Empire State Building with my Canon G11 during a solo trip to the Big Apple in June 2012. In the spring of 2013, I converted it to a graphic silhouette for this post. Then, this weekend, while exploring my archives for inspiration, I wondered how smartphone processing could be used to re-interpret this iconic building.

So, transferring the graphic rendering to my phone, I worked the app magic – sketching and painting and framing – until I came up with this.
Back into Photoshop, I added the 0312 texture (blend mode = Multiply; opacity = 50%) and bumped up the highlights with a Levels adjustment.

Three unique results from a single image – this is why I love post-processing.

Below is the original Photoshop edit on the left and the bit map image conversion on the right.
