Thanks palms. The Sargent brush is so much fun, I keep looking for ways to use it.

Cathy, this is a wonderful photo I had never seen, and I'm glad you bumped it up. I love your Painter Version! Here's mine, done in Painter, using Captured Bristle brush. I may have to play with this gorgeous photo some more

Here's a larger version:

Cheryl-great look but I have a question did you put each layer on top of the last one (9 on top) or left toward the bottom (9 on bottom)? I tried doing what you did on a pic of my own and it did not turn out the same and it is so good.

An oil.

Just a lot of blends using Xero's Artifax filter, GIMP's Retinex filter, and Impressionist. Also some Bumpmapping with the GIMP.

Thanks Catherine. I love your brush strokes. I am going to try and play with the captured bristle brush. You seem to have mastered the technique.

Very interesting texture Ikroll, What program are you using?

Cathy

Hey Cathy.

First, I have to say that you got me beat; can't compete against a Wacom (I just do filters and blends with very minimum amout of smudging). The main two editors that I usually use is GIMP (both 1.2.4 and 2.2.8; mainly 2.2.8, but some pretty cool filters have been removed when version 2 came out), and Photoshop 5.5 (yes, I know; feel sorry for me; I do ). My favorite filter only works in PS (Impressionist; can be found here). I really like Paint Engine too and it also can only be used in PS. GIMP has a lot to offer, and for strait editing, I'm most comfortable using it, so it is my main editor for that reason. If it wasn't for the cool filters, I would only be using GIMP. Did I mention that GIMP is 100% free. The two aforementioned filters are currently free too.

Have not tried GIMPShop Craig.

I've used versions of Photoshop up through 7.0 (on a MAC in a past life), and I still like the GIMP interface better. I guess I'm weird, or, being a former geek (EE Auburn Grad; too bad I could not stay in Engineering), I guess I relate better to GIMP's interface. I didn't care too much for GIMP 1.x interface, but 2.x is very nice. Even able to create lock groups of multiple dialogues (I totempoled Layers and Paths on one group, and Tools, Brushes and Undo History in another; pretty cool). I also like the ability to right click and apply any of the effects such as filters, or merge down; not able to do so with PS 5.5 at least.

Thanks for the info Ikroll. I am using a Mac, and so I don't think I can use Gimp, Paint Engine, or Impressionist.

Wrong about GIMP Cathy.

Unfortunately, I'm afraid your right w.r.t. Impressionist and Paint Engine. Here is the link to GIMP for Macintosh.
