Wonderful LQQKER. Very detailed yet still looks like a painting.

Well done Lqqker...I took about 6 of this Kook..a, it was windy and the others had him in the shadows because he was sitting under a very large camphor tree. This was the only one with light all over him.
I was amazed at how still he kept whilst I approached.

I took this cute li'l guy and put him through the cutout filter in PS, then a gaussian blur. I did an outline by hand, using my trusty Intuos 3 tablet on another layer; canvas texture, rotated 90 degrees, another canvas texture, USM on high levels, and boosted the saturation a bit to bring out some more color.

Terrific result Raniday! Must try this method, I like the result very much.
Kiska - "killing two birds...." as they say! LOL. Wonderful result, cleverly combined.

Stewart -- Welcome!! Thanks for the link to your kookaburra photos -- way cool! I doubt I'll ever see one in the wild, and seeing one fly in your photos is a first for me. Thanks for the link to their cry also -- love it!! The one at our zoo calls out sometimes when I'm there, but not often enough -- now I can hear it whenever I want...
