Vector simplication.

Ran the image into Autotrace (AUTOTRACE -corner-threshold 75 -despeckle-level 16 -despeckle-tightness 1 -output-format ai -output-file c:\temp\d.ai -report-progress %1) and ported the resulting illustrator file into PS. I then did some additional simplifying using Impressionist Conte Faithful and Paint Engine @Wetter2 presets. I then ported the whole thing in GIMP and rand DCSpecial's 1969 filter set to Saturation (adjusted Opacity down a little) and flattened done. I know I could have done the whole thing in PS, but I like GIMPs precise control of Jpeg quality for the file saving process.

lkroll, that is a different look for you. I'm glad you are branching out some. I like. I like.

Kiska, awesome as always. You have more talent in your little War Eagle fingers than I'll ever have. Good thing I can learn from you.

Believe it or not, I started out with Vector simplification before I discovered all those wonderful filters (Paint Engine, Impressionist to name a few). I figured I would try to mix this into the equation and am quite happy with the result. Still a lot of interaction; you know that I try to get the computer to do all the work; still failing though.

I didn't know that Kiska was a War Eagle. I graduated Auburn (EE) in 1992. War Eagle to all.

Quite Numerous steps here unfortunately I seem to have closed the psd without saving, so cannot follow through with description

Seemed to have Deep Paint written all over it.
Done with the (modified) water-colour brush and embossing.
Added sharpening effects in PS.

Rotated the canvas to give it more, um, oomph or something.
Couple layers of Impressionist. Don't remember what settings I wound up with.
