Re: Close up

very lovely, sylvia

i decided to put my contest prize, Akvis artwork 2.0 to work. i havent had much chance to use it before this and i must say, i'm impressed! it's got a good range of effects, does a very nice job on those effects and is very intuitive to use. it does have a few minor little bugs/unwanteds, but all in all, very handy, easy to use and produces some very good effects

all of these are from the program.

Over the years Lyle (aka lkroll) has inspired me with tools he's discovered and his creative innovation. He did it again with this interpretation based on "signature strokes."

I found a signature on the Net (via Google image search) and from it created a custom brush for Impressionist.

The LEFT attachment is the first layer rendered by Impressionist.

The RIGHT attachment is where I stopped a few layers later. I also used Akvis > Sketch to restore some edge detail.

Re: Close up

That's cool Danny; didn't check yet, but did you upload you custom brush set to the Impressionist thread? Anyway, thought I would go on the line side (not vector) for the final one.
