Re: The Pool Man

Really been enjoying your sketches Peter. Don't recall this particular paper before though. Do you have a link to the seamless texture by chance?

Guess I should play too. :)

Working on a new sketch technique. Neon Edge Detect, followed by DCSpecial's ICE4 filter. Invert result and run GREYCstoration on that result. Blend in GIMPressionist with Graphite2 preset and copy original to Top layer set to Burn and voila.

Thanks Lyle, but it's not seamless it's from SXC

I think thats the one.
SXC seem to have a good collection of textures.


I like that one of yours.

Peter

Great find, Peter!

Just a little Topaz play and blending modes.

Re: The Pool Man

Wasn't quite the same texture Peter. I took a sliver of your texture and created this resulting seamless texture. Just sharing.

Re: The Pool Man

Just dropped in to say "Hello".
I don't have my "arty" tools around so I just used PS basics - Cut-out and Note-paper.

Nice work folks, and thanks to Peter for finding us a great image to play with.
