Re: A watercolor from a photograph using an action.

Gunner, There are many actions that say they will create a water color, but I find that 90% of them leave me cold. I don't know how much control the action gives you over settings, but your demo still looks a lot like a photo with some splotches around it to me.

Here's one I did using my Line Art tutorial with a few tweaks on the b/w layer after doing the basic steps. Of course everyone has their preferences. It's what makes the world go 'round.

Know you were after watercolor, but...

...I'm in the mood for gels. Attached is a crop. Here's the complete rendering.

Thank you all for the input. All of yours have something for me to ponder about. So much to learn so little time. Only one life, ya'know.
