Japanese Garden

I used 3 layers on top of the background for this one. ran a bit of Color correction before duplicating this background layer. On the layer above the background I used find edges and desaturate. Above that I used noise and fresco and simplified with light edges to tone down the black patches, above that I used noise and dry brush and simplified. merged them all put a copy of the original back on itself set to 25% to give it back it's original "green".

I like Japanese gardens, so I thought I'd give this a try despite being such an old / dusty thread. Some of the prior efforts are quite good. I especially liked the 1st one Phyllis Stewart did. Too bad this was apparently pre "how I did it".

Layers from bottom to top:
(Layers A,C,& I not used. All layers Normal mode, 100% opacity unless otherwise noted.)

BG (background) - Cropped & applied Hue/Sat, Levels, & Curves to improve it.
B: Copy BG, GBlur 4, DryBrush 2/8/3
D: Copy B, GNoise 6, Spatter 7/7. HardLight / 46%
E: Copy D, Sumi-e 3/3/0. Normal / 34%
F: Copy D, Angled strokes 35/6/4. TURN OFF VISIBILITY
G: Copy D, PaletteKnife 3/3/2, RoughPastels 0/1/15/Sandstone/100%/Bottom. Dissolve / 37%. Added layer mask
H: Copy F, HighPass 1.2, Emboss 99/2/100. Overlay / 55%.
H1: Brightness / Contrast Adj. groouped to layer H. Contrast +24.
J: Copy BG, HighPass 2, GBlur 0.5 LinearLight 39%. Added a layer mask.
K: copy/paste image elements. Free transform (Adding tone & texture to the white rocks diminishes their emphasis in the picture.)
L: Hue/Sat Adj, Hue -11, Sat -10. To make colors & balance among image elements more to my liking.

Layer H /H1 is an attempt to add brush stroke texture to the image that lines up somewhat naturally with the image elements. The high pass filter limits the embossing to the brush strokes created in layer F with the angled strokes filter. I think this was fairly successful, but likely still pretty limited in capability / realism.

Talking Here is gimpified japaneese garden

Open the image in Gimp
Duplicate layer
Upper layer, apply Filter Gaussian Blur 5 ( so when do Sobel edge detection it will give less lines)
Upper layer, Layor->color->desaturate ( So, edge detection will work on B&W, rather than color, I think it is better)
Uppler layer, Filter Edge Detect Sobel ( Get the outline for the image)
Goto the bottom layer
Bottom layer, apply Gaussian blur 5 ( optional)
Bottom layer, Layer->color->auto->equalize ( or whatever you like to do by reducing the fine definition into a smudged image, so it will look like an art).

Apply filers->Light effect->supernova ( to bring the focus point of the art)
I attached the file, hope this attachment works
Thats all guys!

I love this forum!!

I've been tryin got get a better handle on Impressionist. This was running it through Imp. first with Watercoloramp Translucent.
Then Imp. again with Chalk: Soft Detailed Pastels and Faded it to Lighten.
Then Imp again with Paint:Free Daubs and Faded it to Lighten and lowered Opacity.
Then duped the Background
Ran Find Edges and Diffuse:Anisotropic.
stuck that layer on top with Blending if Overlay and about 60% opacity.
That's it.

First time posting...

Well i had no intention of posting this as i tend to just lurk and pick up what i can from reading the other posts, so i'm affraid i kinda picked this image up and ran off with it without concern for my methods.

I appologise for not being able to explain my methods, but felt i would post the image anyways.

Now that you've officially stepped out of the shadows, may I say (a) "Well done" (especially for the addition of the text in the corner) and (b) hope you'll contribute more of your creations in the future. You've definitely got what it takes.
