Been a while, but I used Buzz as starting point, and I think I then played with blends for the final effect. My Lautrec interpretation.

Here's a similar one using Buzz.

Both are very impressive, Steve. I like this look a lot. Sorry I missed the first one. (Busy time of year.)

Since I'm doing a hard disk defrag at the moment, I'm unable to experiment. So just for fun if I was trying to recreate your results this is what I would try...

Duplicate the Background and apply Buzz using one of the presets... perhaps a variation of Watercolor. Duplicate BG again and move this layer above the Buzzed layer. To that apply some sort of edges effect (via Buzz or some other filter or plugin), desaturate and set the blend mode set to Darken (or muliply). You might need to apply Levels to this layer of edges to get rid of the grayish mid-tone noise, which will make the lines more distinct. Lower the opacity, too.

After flattening these layers, apply another filter effect to give it the uniform, rough textured look.

How am I doing so far? In the ballpark?

In any event, it's a very appealing style. Have you printed any of these types of interpretations? I'll bet they would show well.

Later... HD Defrag done.

Mine isn't as appealing as Steve's, but for those interested in going the direction he did, here's an attempt on poor ol' Bara. Turned out my guess above was "close, but no cigar." The Layers Palette screenshot shows the layer progression.

Thanks for the inspiration, Steve.

I think you're awfully close, Danny. There's a tad more depth in Steve's renditions, and my first thought was Caravaggio, though I don't think Steve used it. Maybe Steve will give us some more of his technique, but in the meantime, we'll have fun working on it.

Yup, I'd say Danny is pretty close.

I usually start by playing with the Buzz presets until I find what works on a given image. I dup this and work with blends and opacities to get the end result. Sometimes I hit it right away, then again nothing works. I also may have to paint in some detail on some images. But nothing I have posted here is anything but Buzz. No other plugin was used.

On some postings on other threads I may combine other plugins with Buzz, but these here are strictly Buzz with blends.
