Well done GrafixD...just a pity we can't see it more clearly. 300DPI is great for printing but for posting I usually just resize to 72dpi and then work on that version for posting. Someone will come along and explain this better than moi...

"Get your tickets to the Magical Mystery Tour! Right this way!"

Multiple layers...
* Photoshop solarize (+ Levels)
* Photoshop solarize (+ Hue/Saturation + Invert)
* A filter called "PopArt" from www.ThePluginSite.com. It's part of the Plugin Gallaxy collection. Install the demo, delete all but PopArt.

...spliced together with Layer Masks.

Thank you, Neve, for one you knew I'd enjoy.

Well done GrafixD. It looks like a real painting.

Danny, now who is "off their meds"? It was worth the journey though wasn't it? Fantastic result.

Janet

Whew... my meds just came in the mail!

Good one, Janet! (LOL)

I was experimenting (on a single layer unfortunately = no screenshot) with the Impressionist plugin (again) and may have come up with a new custom style I like. It's kind of like #djroil24, but varies the size of the brush according to some internal algorithm.

I liked the outcome and in spite of no detail wanted to "balance out" the Magical Mystery Tour upload.
