Posted here are two of of what I call "artful unnudes". If you've dabbled in this kind of conceit, then post them here with any comments you'd like. Both of mine were made in Photoshop with Actions that I created. Here are the photos/artwork:


Any comments also welcome. I have several more of these in my portfolio, so check them out.
Cheers,
rfs

I love the second one of her kneeling...I am just getting into the artistic side using photos as the basis with PS and Painter. I am curious as to how you did the second one.

This effect is typically done by creating a second layer, using the cutout filter to taste, and then choose a "blend mode" that makes the effect work (to taste). You can also use opacity at this point. When you find something you like, then just record it as an action, and you'll have it for the future.

Nice work. Even as a rather conservative "photographer," I've come to appreciate the importance of the final image over "purity." Why, I've even dabbled in gum dichromate, myself. Nowheres near as effectively.

Really, very nice.

It's pretty much a one button effect using the 'poster edges' filter in photoshop, isn't it?

Poster Edge and Cutout are two of the ones I use most often for this kind of effect (#2 is a good example). Then using blend modes to pick the exact effect I want and then opacity for the strength. Yours look pretty good. I think #1 really as a great look to it. (It looks like a cutout variant to me - was it, or did you use poster edge).

Cheers,
rfs

#1 is just straight up poster edges, #2 was poster edges, then fade, using the overlay mode.
