Re: Take your pick

Thank you. I created a selection of the bird. Inversed it and used that selection to paint the background on a blank layer. Then I inversed it again and painted the bird on a new blank layer. Finally, I duped the background layer and used the glowing edges filter, inversed it and desaturated it, and moved it on top of the stack, and changed the blend mode to soft light. I used byRo's brushes.

I would appreciate any suggestions for how to improve my technique.

Did some additional things to help enhance the contrast prior to Autotrace vector simplication.

Just feeding my current binge. For those who have highspeed internet, click here; you won't regret it. Attached is a much lower quality downsampled version.

That is super lkroll (you really do need to see the detail in this) I guess it is going to be a plug in/filter ?
