Ikroll, once I was asked to create an effect of sewing machine strokes for an image. I wish, I knew your Thread2 technique. How did you do that?
Palms1, I like your both attempts, especially the second one, could be an illustration for 'The Snow Queen" book.

Hey Craig,

When I was an Engineer, they asked me to do very hard tasks in an hour. They did give me all day to do the impossible. I delivered by the way. I'm now much older and wiser and not as much a hustler as I use to be. Maybe I might see if I can modify some parameters to get the cross-stitch to look right; GIMP's GIMPressionist has a cross-stich capability, but I have not played much with it.

very nice, palms. sort of crystalline. love to see it in color.

lk,

i dont know that there's anything wrong with it, since i know little to nothing about needle point, or cross stitching for that matter. it might even work as a needlepoint pattern as is. i just like it.

Cross-stitch via the GIMP.

Here you go Craig. If you have GIMP, you can get the custom GIMPressionist preset here. I did do some edge detect sharpening and bumpmapping. For me to use Impressionist, I would need to create a custom brush (simple X shape); too lazy to do so now, so I pass the torch for the adventurous folks out there.

ah, ok. i perceive the difference. hmm, maybe i wasnt thinking of needlepoint at all in your original... or more likely, i dont know what needlepoint really is. i do know that your first one reminded me of some sort of needle work i've seen...embroidery maybe?

oh well, i like them both and thanks for the pattern
