Lyle, I am really impressed - this "floating acrylic" looks great !
(sometimes less means more )

I hoped to make a colour pencils drawing, the result is not exactly what
I wanted, but I think this can be a good direction..

I used Gimp

To barbara: that almost looks like a crayon sketch; very nice. In response to your comment, that's why it's sometimes called simplication. The art is to remove as much detail as possible and yet still dicypher what it is.

To Craig: man that's too much. You have too much time on your hands. lol

Pat, thanks
that's truth what you said about the wide variety of possible sketch looks,
my small problem is to find way to make sketch look a less "computerly"..
it means more unstraight lines, I think..

Lyle,
thanks for nice comment
and believe me - you are not the laziest one, for sure
( I always save output from autotrace as pdf - and open directly in Gimp
so am I lazier ? )

Never tried to use PDF format in GIMP.

I tried this and, at first, GIMP was trying to do so by asking various parameters, but then it gave an error. I'll have to check further in how to set up GIMP for PDF/EPS files (I read somewhere that it was based on Ghostscript that I also have installed). I was able to copy the image from clipboard after opening the PDF file and it actually is better then Mayura. Thanks a heap for the info Barbara.

edit:

I got it to work thanks to the link below.
