Nice filter. Was that done in Photoshop or Gimp?

so.... someone educate me. this just look like a photo was taken into some program and was slightly altered. no skill needed. just basic manipulation. there is no "art" here... I mean.. right? so what is this?

It's a basic filter. Apparently, done in Gimp2.8. I have no idea why it was shared unless it was an attempt, a poor one, to trick folks into thinking it was a painting done by OP.

Wrong!!! It's a black and white photo, colored by me. As in a COLORIST

Your ignorance and your manners are not my concern Norton. I shared this because I like Superman, and I'm exhibiting my coloring skills. The two of you can go screw!!

well...I LOVE to screw. and Bishop seems like a decent fellow so... if he's down.. we will make sweet sweet screw.




also...you can chill out. I don't buy your explanation..for one second.. that you "colored" this in the traditional meaning that you took a blank canvas and applied your skills and abilities. honestly..with the art you have shared before.. you just are NOT this skilled. you are developing and getting better.. but this isn't how good you are. this is photo manipulation at best. you arent fooling anyone. except yourself maybe.

thumbs up pal

I can see where he may have colored a bw photo. Basically take it, up the contrast, set the layer to multiply, and add some flat colors under it. This in no way would make anyone a 'colorist', though. Except, perhaps in very loose terms.

I love to screw (:banana:), so thanks for the invitation.

ward1976: You would have gotten a very different response if you had provided some context when you posted this (eg "I colored this black and white photo. What do you guys think?")

It was opened it in Gimp 2.8(free by the way), converted(changed) to black and white. I Added contrast. (shadows) Then colored it digitally. I know I must being doing something right if other artist can't tell the difference and would resort to calling me a fraud.

I don't think he understands the difference.

Ward, I applaud you for trying to learn a craft however what you are doing is just touching up a picture, not coloring (at least not in the traditional term).

What you have done is filter the color and then reapplied it and calling it yours.

It doesn't matter if you smoothed or brightened the pic, that is just touch ups.

Coloring means applying the base (the colors) from start to finish.

Now I understand you are tying to learn the tools but if you are going to do it, do it the right way.

You can go here, http://www.coloring-painting-pages.com/comics.htm, and download several free b/w pics to practice real coloring.

Don't be offended, we are trying to help you, believe it or not.
