Swampy, thank you for you comments.
May be you are right, especially if you look it at distance with “squint” eyes (sorry for my poor English, don’t allow me to express exactly as I want).

Stop it Swampy! I'm falling off my chair.

It was bound to happen I guess. A song about Kudzu, and what further knocks me out is that it is a very good piece of music they put those words to.

Thanks for letting me in on it.

Steve C.

Emulating Giuseppe Arcimboldo

Well, not exactly, but this technique has some potential. It uses GIMP's Resynthesizer filter (no longer distributed with the latest release of GIMP, but still can be downloaded). I first created a texture swatch of what I want to apply to the target. I then created an input map with selective colors (see all attached for info). I then create the output target that I want to create. Pretty simple stuff, but it takes a lot of time for Resynthesizer to render on my poor ol' machine. lol

Same as above; just a different output map.
