Re: Horses

Yeah... reading HELP is not one of my strong inclinations! More of a last, not first resort.

In some ways Painter is like Photoshop in that there is a lot of underlying not-well-documented functionality that one sometimes stumbles into. Typically it's not difficult to apply the effect; the challenge is understanding all the controls, options, etc.

Experimenting is much of the fun!

Re: Horses

OK Folks; just can't seem to automate sketch or anything without doing selective erasethroughs, but this one is pretty much all plugins. I started out with GIMP's Edge Detect Neon, Dupped, and then ran GIMPressionist with Graphite_2 preset (defaults) set to darken. I then blended that in and flattened. Then I dupped and ran Xero's Mystifier filter. I amplified the effect (note; did not use ACE as the example but used Xero's Mystifier and amplified that effect), and flattened. I then dupped (three layers) and ran Cybia's Eliminate Black filter and ran GIMPressionist with Furry preset (moded by setting to transparent canvas) and adjusted the opacity of the middle layer to taste. Now I selectively erased around the face of the horse (the only non-filter step; didn't like the frayed edges) and flattened. That's it.
