The Mill & the Horny Beasts

Gottcha

Two very nice pictures by Filip de Bont. The originals can be found at http://www.woophy.com/map/index.php

Old water mill at Bokrijk - I have no idea where this is but a great picture.
Herd of Wildebeest Masai Mara N P - This one's like lunch time at the office cafeteria only not so busy.

Both mine done with art history which supprised me with the wildebeest one

The only restrictions I can see are no commercial use. Please Enjoy.


Peter

Re: The Mill & the Horny Beasts

Peter, thanks for posting these. I really like your AHB wildebeests.

Did the mill in Twisted Brush and CS2. I'm afraid it took took it on the chin when I downsampled it. (Sigh) I may tackle the horny beests later.

(Bokrijk seems to be in Belgium.)

Re: The Mill & the Horny Beasts

Peter, seems that you're having fun.

Accept an idea?
Make a layer with some outlines - any technique, sketch / edges / high-pass / aniso - and combine (overlay / hard / linear-light) them with the AHB.
I find this helps to bring back some definition to the "painting".

Consider it accepted, I'm always open to new ideas, stops me going stale.
Fun it certainly is - nice textures there Ro will definitely try this.

Even more horney beasts.

Again used Mehdi's Kaleidoscope filter to create the afghan rug. Not too creative tonight. Attached is an extremely low quality crop. Here's the high quality full rendering.

Agreed Pavel. I used the Redfield++ bas relief plugin to give it that 3D embossed look.

Re: The Mill & the Horny Beasts

Lonk nice one I'm glad I'm not the only one using that plugin.

LK I was messing with Mehdi and wondered what it would look like after a treatment with Redfields thing bob.

Not bad I think. Thanks for making me look for this one.
If anyone else wants it, its available here - free download.

Larger version of mine should be below.
