Re: Horse Races

Glad you liked my results Fran. Dynamic Pointillism is not my preset but the DAP forum died a year ago and last fall it had to be revamped from scratch so the original author and his presets no longer exists (except locally on my drive and a few lucky others). PM me and I'll pass them to you (see no problem to privately share but won't publically since I'm not the originator; not really a copyright issue since it's a preset to another program, but still won't publically share since the preset's not mine). As for the Leroy Neiman, I did use Xero's Iridium to add some false colors before running Impressionism filter. Also blended in some FotoSketcher to this mix.

Re: Horse Races

I did a couple of versions of the second photo. I used the impressionist filter to distort the background. In the first version, I then used a couple of layers of Topaz Adjust and blended in a color sketch. In the second version, I'm still struggling to do something semi-Neiman like.

Re: Horse Races

Gosh, I thought for sure I posted this this afternoon...but it's not here. I hope it doesn't wind up on another forum, like Critiques 'cause it would really get razzed!

Anyway, here it is. Fran, how'd you do? Love the races.

Re: Horse Races

Hey Fran; just realized that I did leave out a crucial step. Before applying either FotoSketcher or Impressionist, I did run a Cartoonize Script-fu which basically outlines the details and solid fills the more smooth features. Sorry about that oversite. Below's straight cartoonize (no newsprint effect option).

Re: Horse Races

I love both of them, Veralisa. I love the loose sketch effect. Did you hand draw the lines? I broke even at the races. I wouldn't complain even if I lost though. The thoroughbreds only run in Saratoga during the month of August so it's a great way to spend a day.

Nice cartoon effect. Lyle. Did you write the script? The link worked perfectly. Thanks so much.

Fran
