I'm working on a project on Photoshop CC that replaces Mt. Fuji with silhouette of a car in some of the painting of famous Japanese artist Hokusai.
I've tried using a watercolor brush to mimic the outline, and used the stamp tool to mimic the white color fill.
This my result:
Aside from general tips on what to use in order to get a better replicate, I have three main problems that I'd like help with:
- Outline Color
It seems like Hokusai's brush changes color over time. That is, if you look at the outlines of Mt. Fuji for example, it starts off light blue and ends dark blue, almost black.
I want to get a similar effect with my brush, but the brush settings only have an option for "Brush Dynamics", which make the color jitter and jump between tints and hues - as opposed to shifting gradually like I want.
- Woodblock Print Texture
The painting has some sort of effect to it, that is caused by the original technique (woodblock prints). It's not really graininess but rather something else that I can't put my finger on (maybe wood-like texture?).
Can't manage to replicate this, unless I use the stamp, which leads to poor and limited results.
Thanks a lot!
