Hybiscus

The color of this hybiscus was just incredible. I hope it comes through on the forum. I brought the plant in to try and winter over, but in case that doesn't work, at least I'll have the art.
I tried a sort of smudge. It's pretty tedious with just a laptop touchpad. But anyway, I gave it a try.

Re: Hybiscus

I can't even smudge with a mouse, let alone a touchpad!!
I'd be lost without my wacom.

Great pic Shary!

Re: Hybiscus

What wonderful renditions! Lyle, I've never seen anything like yours -- it looks like glass. What did you do?

Re: Hybiscus

Enjoying all the different renditions. I jazzed up the colors and painted with PaintEngine using two different presets.

Re: Hybiscus

Thank's Fran. I used a GIMP Script-fu called Plastic Wrap and blended in creative ways to give the result a more glass like look.

Re: Hybiscus

Lyle, forgive my ignorance but what is a GIMP Script-fu? Is it the equivalent of a Photoshop action? You've done some amazing work with that program. I've tried it but can't figure it out to save my life.

Here's my combination sketch/impressionist filter version. Thanks for the photo, Shary.

Re: Hybiscus

I think the Hybiscus is probably one of the most photogenic flowers around. And it shows through in everyone's rendition. Here's mine, not so pretty, but with character. I used a Dragonize type action (probably found on DPR)

Yes, but they are harder to create (based on the Scheme programming language). In fact, I've never even created one since my programming skills are pretty bad (nor do I care to since so many others share their work and have had little need to do so).
