I worked in mixed media for years way before the age of graphics.
A girl after my own heart! I'll bet you're still keeping those brushes, paints and paper like I am..............just in case the graphics addiction ever fades!

No, Elle, I haven't received them yet. We'll be gone till tomorrow. I'm hoping the mailman doesn't leave them on the front porch for a wandering dog to find!

Hey Ella,

I haven't really found a decent way to convert photos to cartoon illustrations yet. This one is only partially a success, but I wanted to share it with all of you anyway. I used a Script-fu (yes I'm using GIMP) called Invert Colors (the Value remains that of the original, but the colors only get inverted) and kept a copy of this layer. I first place a copy of this layer on top of a copy of the original and set the property to Divide and merged the two layers. On another set, I placed this same layer on top of an original and set the layer properties to Dodge and merged down. I placed the Divided layer on top of the Dodged layer and all the above on top of the original (you know in actuality I did this all on a total of five layers; just easier to explain it this way; LOL). I set the top layer to Saturation and the
Center layer to Value and adjusted the Opacity of the Center layer and then flatten. I ported the result into PS for additional simplification using Impressionist and done. Again, not quite there yet, but at least the facial features are more flat (reduced shadows).
