Help with Fractalius style

Have been using Fractalius since it was first released but have hit a stumbling block...(at least for me)....on this style.

Here are two images, the one done in Fractalius and the original.

I have been trying a lot of different combinations to get this effect, so far without success.

Can any of you kind folks who use Frac give me some info on the preset and settings used for this effect. Several of them might work...just haven't hit on the combination yet.

Any and all help will be most appreciated.

Steve C.

Re: Help with Fractalius style

A puzzle i like it (at the moment anyway ) not a huge user of fractalius but here is one quick attempt

using the crayon wide setting (with a few tweeks to the individual settings which i can provide if you want )

then in ps fading the filter a bit and then upping the saturation

will have another go later and cant wait to see others versions

That's pretty close Palms.

The version I posted is from the main gallery of examples at the Frac website. I am pretty sure it was all done in Frac, but am not sure of this. I have a lot of presets, some of which I made, but none have worked to get the look you got. I would very much like the individual settings you used on the crrayon preset. This will work well if I can't find which preset was used on the orig.

Thanks much Palms. I am going to try it and see how your method looks when I do it.

Re: Help with Fractalius style

back again now Steve

i duplicated the image then on that layer used

Crayon Wide (from top to bottom)
25,33,100,00

100,25,100,20

Brightness 4, Saturation 29 and Scale -01

then reduced the opacity of the layer to about 80% ( sorry not fade as i said before)

since earlier i had another thought and run these settings onto the dup twice and i think it might be a tad closer but you would need to alter some settings for the second pass as it came out quite light, but worth a try maybe ! !

let me know how you get on, i will have another mess around soon ( i do enjoy trying to work out how a look was done , well until i get bored with it )

Re: Help with Fractalius style

Just to add more confusion maybe !

try the sketch bw02 setting raising the saturation and brightness
and decreasing the scale
this seemed to get close as well but added a bit more saturation in ps (also try a few tweeks on the other settings as well, i get them going in the right direction and then one number different sends it off completely in a different way !)

it's ok i am off now getting close to bed time lol

Many thanks.

Re: Help with Fractalius style

I used B/W02 and fiddled as follows
top 75; 68; 45; 09; 00
bottom 13; 02; 44; 00; 00
Scale 44

This is straight out of frac, no blending, no color etc...

Re: Help with Fractalius style

Hi, Steve.
For the first result I used two layers, both filtered with Fractalius. The top one Soft Line blend.
Used settings:
LEONARDO (Mode: Black/White, 17,29,54,00, 18,25,61,20, 33,25, Scale“50”)
GREUEZE (Mode: White/Black, 64,00, 00,00, 100,00,100,00, 50,25, Scale“0”)

Origin, LEONARDO, GREUEZE, Result, Layers

It is addictive.

Sorry to say I am not having much luck with that style. I even copied everything you did and it just does not look the same. And for some reason it does not look like the one you posted.

It's not a biggie, so will let it go for now. May hit on something later that is closer.

Thanks much.

Steve C.
