Very different Mo, not seen this before, he's still a very handsome chap, for me I prefer the original

Gets a click from me.

Tried using a displacement map a while back and it was no easy business.

Thanks guys, Malcolm I prefer the original too, LOL
Bill you're probably right, but weather was bad so I had a little play, i have found another image which I may upload tomorrow.
Thanks Michael, yep I was cross eyed for a while playing with the layers, LOL

Hi Mo, dispacement maps can be great fun but you really have to decide if the end result will look the better for it or not. On this occassion I feel the boys photo is fine without it. I try to keep the use of them to a very graphic image usually grungy as this works best. Nude studies also work well Mo and perhaps would have been a better choise for the wood pattern, can see it working over all the female contours, in fact would also work well on a male torso, perhaps a well build bodybuilder type. All that said my hat goes of to your efforts in what can be a difficult area of manipulation.
Take care victor

super image Mo, i thought displacement was for hips lol.

again, a great image.
18 Feb 2006 1:41PM
It is a great shot Mo, but with a subject as handsome as this I would have posted it without the wooden effect. Still looks good and you really did catch his eyes. Well done....

It's an interesting effect. At first I also thought it was blinds, but then noticed the wood effect. I agree it's not the best subject for this effect, but would love to see more! Nice work even though it wasn't the right subject! Smile

chase 12 1.1k 246 England
19 Feb 2006 12:52AM
Nice experiment Mo but I too feel it was posssibly the wrong subject,clever manipulation & I think Victor has a good idea with the use of a nude,particularly a male as the effects give a harder look,possibly too harsh for a female torso.
Nice control on the layers thing though.

This is a very brave attempt at some thing different and I for one feel that it has paid off.
In fact it proves that the little lad is a chip off the old block.

Hello Mo, this is excellent, at first I thought should the eyelashes be removed and the teeth tones to make it look more like the real thing then I thought no it would spoil the portrait. Very impressive.
Very Cool effect, Mo!
I'll bet the original is gorgeous, what a great look!

I tend to uses displacement map to create effects like gold in text but i have never used it to impose a image onto a image.

nice work good idea.

spot on IAJACKS

PS what software are you using to make the image?
MoWiz 12 114 United Kingdom
20 Feb 2006 3:46AM
Thanks for the comments guys, I have conceded this was proobably the wrong image to try this with.

Ian (iajacks) just using CS2, using the distort/displace filter to do the work
