Craggy Face

I haven't posted one for a while. But I found this on my hard drive.
Also there has been a lot of flowers about and what with hay fever and so on, its about time for a change. (nothing personal Palms).

The first is a resized original (to get under the 100k limit).
The second is mine go at it.

No restricitions on the styles you use, of course, anything will do.

The fullsize original can be found here if you wish to use it.

A higher res version of my attempt can be found here if you would like to view it.

Have fun

Peter

Sort of like lace.

Playing with GIMP Mosaic filter set to Grain Extract for some more stitch fun (a happy accident that I recently found). I b/w step involved Mehdi's fine threshold filter and Amphisoft Xylograph filter (for the wavy blacks). Here's the complete high quality version (little over 900K). Attached is a very low quality crop.

Re: Craggy Face

Quite the picture you found there, and what an expression.
I used KentC's "cezanne" preset in impressionist and used the dry brush filter in photoshop for the details.

Re: Craggy Face

Craggy faces like this are a lot of fun to work with.

Anyone familiar with Ivan Albright's paintings will certainly appreciate the look.

I just loaded a luminosity mask with hi-lights selected and used the default Lighting effects with the light going in the right direction.
