Creative challenge 008: Mosaic effects

I've always liked digital simulations of mosaic effects, so let's concentrate on that style for this thread...

Use your favorite methods, plugins, filters, tools (like Painter) to give one of our most popular subjects, Bara, a mosaic look.

Have fun!

Here's one rendered with the Classic Mosaic option of the Alien Skin Xenofex 2 plugin. The mosaic layer was duplicated, Photoshop's Emboss filter applied and layer blend mode changed to Overlay for a little more depth effect.

OK... Your turn. Let's see YOUR mosaic technique!

Nice, Danny, but she's almost too pretty to distort.. LOL

PhotoShop CS2:

Duplicate layers with two styles of ties (background and face) set to different blend modes.

Cool mosaics, Danny & Swampy! I used a tried and true mosaic tool, the one in Painter IX, but I experimented with something a little different, colorizing her first with a gradient. Not sure how I feel about the results yet, but when I've spent time on a piece, I post it!

I have so much texture in it, I had to save these at like 6%, so here are some links to larger res versions.

Stunning, Cathrine! Looks like something that you might see in a high end magazine ad. I like the magenta one myself.

This my attempt, I have photo shop 7 and this is a filter I have had for a long time Alien Skin Xenofex 2 "Shatter". I hope this goes right, posting on each forum seem to be a challange for me to get it right.

Thanks very much, Swampy

This looks like an interesting mosaic program. I downloaded it to my desktop but haven't installed it yet.

Craig! Those are marvelous! The first is very "commercial" (my taste) the second is kinda fun like she's winking at us. Good job
