Well it may have taken a while to "get there," but this is a most creative interpretation.

This is an excellent example of how to "push the limits."

Thumbs up.

Here's a Painter mosaic. They're fun to do and would be a lot more tedious without a tablet & pen.

A quick experiment with Photoshop's emboss filter.

1. Duplicate Image
2. Desaturate new layer
3. Apply emboss filter
4. Lower opacity to desired amount
5. Copy the highlights from the original image, paste on new layer above emboss layer. Change mode to color and adjust opacity.
6. Add levels adjustment layer to increase contrast

I think Painter's mosaic function is (pardon the pun, Cat), the Cat's meow!

That's sure a lot easier than gluing all those tiles together!

The lazy way to make a mosaic...

A few months ago I bought an AlienSkin Xenofex 2 CD for $15 from someone on eBay just for the mosaic filter. I prefer the hand crafted mosaics like Cat did with Painter, but if you're in a hurry this plugin does a pretty decent job.
