Danny, You did a pretty good job of re-creating Bob's work. I like it, too!!

Yes, I am aware of the lineage of Buzz & PAM. One of these days I'll order one or the other.

flower mart

This one really is a hack job, but the results in full size are really rather beautiful.

Paint Engine Poster7,
VP impasto, everything on subtle except the focus.

I'm giving you the entire thing first. It really suffers from the image limiting, so I'm putting a sample from the full size image in the next post.

Amy:

This was a very suitable image for this effect, as a matter of fact Virtual Painter's Impasto is one of my favorites. Most of the time I prefer to disguise the pronounced stroke marks a bit to get a different look.

One way to do that is to use the Smudge tool to smear them.

Another (example attached) is to duplicate the layer rendered by VP and "rough it up" a bit. On the duplicate I applied the Distort > Ocean Ripple (2,5) followed by Brush Strokes > Spatter (8,3), toned down using Edit > Fade Spatter.

Then, Layer > Add Layer Mask > Hide All.

After setting the foreground color to white and choosing a soft-edged brush, opacity ~60%, flow ~ 40%, I airbrushed on the layer to which the layer mask was just applied which gradually revealed the texture and suppressed the distinctive stroke marks.

So why disguise the Impasto strokes? It's just another way of getting a different effect.
