Yeah, let's see what else we can use it on!
Neve, yes, I'm guessing the sharpening emphasized all the lines -- I was too busy looking at the kittens' fur grow to notice the other much, and I decided it was "artistic texture".
Your kittens are so sweet and soft!
I really like AmyHutton's March '04 effort. Mine perhaps looks a bit similar, but certainly came by a different path.
BG: Warmed the colors some. Cropped to taste.
A: Copy BG. Pixelate>Facet. Stylize>FindEdges. Artistic>Cutout. BrushStrokes>Spatter. (Luminosity, 100%).
B: Levels Adj. Grouped with layer A to tame the high key effect some.
C: Painting & filtering on an empty layer to darken the black kitten (which turned white from layer A). Getting this to blend in was tough.
D: MergeVisible(BG,A,B,C). Artistic>Sponge. (Normal, 39%)
E: A mild texture overlay.
I forgot how adorable these little kitties are...
* Duplicate of original Background to which Impressionist > Chalk > Faithful was applied
* Duplicate of original Background dragged to top of layer stack and added a Layer Mask. Used low opacity Chalk 36 to bring back some detail
* New layer filled with 50% Gray set to Overlay. Texture > Texturizer > Trimoon Art Class 101
* New layer filled with white. Added a Hide All layer mask. Used regular brush to bring back most of the image and a large Chalk 36 brush at low opacity for the "chalky edges."
