The Watcher on Bourbon St.

Post by minniev » Mon Oct 08, 2018 12:02 am

I did a whole lot of artistic-y editing of this one so figured it belonged in this section even though it’s a person-picture.

Any comments appreciated, suggestions of what to do or not to do. I haven’t done one up quite like this so it’s an experiment. There’s much more done to everything that isn’t the Watcher than there is to him.

Thank you Frank. I first did my traditional processing, but even if I blurred the other characters, they seemed to clutter up the scene (maybe there can be too much in the kitchen sink even for me). I wanted the crowd to be fairly faceless/formless, and once I got started on that path, I wanted the buildings to look like something out of a European city. After I amassed a ton of layers chasing all kinds of artistic rabbits, I brought The Watcher’ detail back in somewhat.
