Danny, a correction on the previous post

Trying to be a bit more specific -- when i said i modified the brush, i meant that i changed the image file i.e. the brush tiff file. Got it?

Jaykita - You brought a tear to my eye, that is beautiful! Printed it off and have it next to my computer. A lovely thought and much appreciated. I've been fiddling with Impressionist for hours today and now decided that I'd better give it all away, even though I'm enjoying it...my processor is way too slow tackling "some" of the settings. Keep up the great work everyone, your results are stunning!

Cheers

Impressionist will be really slow on high resolution images. On lower resolution images, e.g., 8 in x 12 in @ 80 ppi, it chugs along (for me anyway) at approx. the same rate as Smart Blur/Edge Only. Acceptable, but not speedy.

Ah... so you used Fluff's Waterchalk custom style (settings) and applied them with a brush you modified. (You applied Gblur to the .tif?)

That's awesome.

If I'm reading you right, I'd say, zip the waterchalk-only .set file & the modified brush .tif and upload 'em to that thread. You could give Fluff credit for his contribution, while taking a well-deserved bow yourself for having so creatively modified the brush.

That would be a real golden nugget contribution.... sort of a 1 + 1 = 3.

That's right, Danny. I used Fluff's "waterchalk-smudged" settings, with the exception of his chalk brush. Instead I used the watr5a brush which i think is an original impr brush and modified that (.tiff image) by g'blurring it.
Here's an entry from "Creative interpretations: Flowers - Lavender/Purplish" using my brush.

well....

I've been playing with some pics from other Creative Interpretations threads and just having fun combining Impressionist effects. Here are a couple I'm pretty happy with. I'm still trying to get a hand-painted effect. I apologize that I don't have the exact process I used, but I was just playing around.
The profile pic was several layers.
The bottom is a color layer with about half a dozen default Impressionist filters, each faded.
Next is a black and white layer with about 3 or 4 Impressionist filters, also faded.
The third is an Edge layer, also with 2 or 3 Impressionist filters, faded.
Then stamped visible and slapped a texture on.
The frontal portrait was the BG layer left untouched.
I used a Black and White duplicate with about half a dozen Impressionist filters, all faded, and set the layer to Luminosity.
Then I used an Edge layer.

I'm sorry about the sparse details, I'll be better next time, I promise.

You've achived two very unique effects here.

As time goes on you'll discover combinations of Impressionist settings (plus other effects) that you like. These will evolve into methods you'll be able to reproduce on demand for different pics.

Sometimes the euphoria of achieving exciting, new results overtakes the discipline of keeping track of details. That's understandable, especially when you get on a creative roll. Anyone who has done this type of photo-art tinkering has gone in that mode -- many, many times including yours truly.

Keep in mind keeping track benefits not only those who view your work, it's sure nice to know "How did I do THAT?" days, weeks, months down the road if you ever want to recreate an effect (or at least go in a general direction). With so many possible combinations of settings and filters and plugins, if you ever want to "do it again," then a few notes "how" sure come in handy.fd

It comes with patience and practice... No rush. You'll get there.

Glad to see you're experimenting and having fun. Keep on doing that.

~Danny~

Good for you, David. Glad to see you lept right in with Impressionist.

You've just begun to have fun!
