Not sure why, but I find this reminiscence of some of the early 60's comic sketchings. Nice

Thanks Joe. Now to figure out what's an 'Art History Brush"? Where's my friend Goggle when I need him? <Grin>

Wow, that is impressive, Fran. I've been hearing mention of this Akvis Sketch quite a bit lately. Will have to check it out (Though I suspect it's way out side my budget.)

Nice Lyle. FotoSketcher always turns out some nice images.

Strong watercolour favour here, Grant. Though I find the paper texture a bit too strong and somewhat distracting.

Interesting Automotion. First glance gives me a feeling of surreal. But when examined more closely, nothing but straight lines, nothing waving. <Smile>

Thanks everyone for playing. I've really been enjoying each image posted.

Re: The steamboat

Something different maybe? I tried to retro the photo to make it look like it has been stored in a pile of pictures or in a shoe box in a hot attic for many years.

Re: The steamboat

Thanks all for the nice comments. I guess I'm a little twisted at times. When most are trying to restore old photos, here I am making good photos look old.

Thanks Palms for the explanation and the tut. A bit beyond my abilities and that of my software, but very interesting.
