Re: A Night At The Fair

County fairs are fun! I love the rubber duckys - do they have a duck race?

I love that big wheel - spinning fast (hopefully a long exposure) - I'll add that I love to see them from afar, but you won't catch me riding one.

Was reading some cartoony tut and tried a bit of image indexing with some masking...

I couldn't think how to go with this one, so I was just messing about and this little fellow appeared so I went with it.
Now it looks a little like a rooster to me, but that's me, what do you see?

Yep! The beak is in the center and he has two big green eyes, and a lot of multi-colored feathers - looks kinda like a bantam rooster I once knew.
Peter - very cool!

Re: A Night At The Fair

well, i'm still working on my 'van Gogh' filter forge filter, so that one's out. how bout a renoir or maybe a charcoal? ok, well, maybe not a renoir, but at least somewhat impressionistic

i'm not real happy with the charcoal. i may have to look that filter forge filter over again and do some revisions.

Re: A Night At The Fair

Having too much fun with your toy Craig. I see some potential with your charcoal sketch is you tone the colors lighter and add some paper texture. Maybe a da Vinci filter.

Re: A Night At The Fair

hehe, yup. love my toys

the charcoal sketch isnt really my filter. i've used it with some success, but i'm just not real happy with it. i started modding it last night after posting here. heh, now i've got a colored pencil filter. lol. so, more modding yet

and i like the idea of adding some paper texture(s). i'll look into that.
