Re: Fruit vendors

Very very nice, Grant

I took this picture in the capital of Goa (India). This is part of the old Portuguese town.

Re: Fruit vendors

High compression blur, but here is my try Sylvia. Been experimenting with reverse aniso technique and am closer to creating the TK style. One of my main motivations that got me into creating computer art from photographs (I dub it photoartography; lol) is Thomas Kinkade (the others are Rockwell and Degas). Almost happy (not quite, but almost; been trying on and off for over 9 years now; lol). You have to understand, that I'm not an artist; I'm a simulator with some nudging. My goal (said this before) is to get the computer to do all the work (since I'm lazy). Haven't been able to do that quite yet (though I try).

Re: Fruit vendors

Fantastic result Lyle, I really like the TK look I think you are getting closer and closer to the TK style. Could you explain a bit about the reverse aniso technique.

Thanks
Grant

Thanks for the comments. One cool way to create aniso is to use Xero's Supersmooth filter. What I do is dup, run Supersmooth on top layer and set the layer property to Grain Extract and copy visible on top layer and set it to Over. This actual reverses the Aniso (inverts the effect of normal aniso that is). It, in it's own right, simplifies (but much noisier) and I then add other effects to clean up the result and also to add a little ethereal effect using Xero's Soft Mood filter among other things. Grain Extract layer property is a GIMP specific one and no equivalent in PS but you can mimick (to lazy to re-engineer it; not 100% anyway). I used the Grain Extract property a lot to create a highpass filter effect too among many other things (really like this layer property). I also use it for effect amplication (if you like a certain effect but want more, you can amplify it using Grain Extract Overlay).

Re: Fruit vendors

I used filters and blending modes. Cool image. Thanks for the play

Lyle, call me efficient or lazy but either way my goal is to get the computer to do as much of the work as quickly as possible . Those Xero filters are really cool. Is that the one with the 'sky cleaner'? Very handy that
