Re: Creative Interpretations: Smiling bright

amica, good picture and i love that style of sketch.

very nice, lyle. for some reason i want to call that style 'west coast'. not sure why, but there ya go (it's a good style ).

alex, good texture. captured all the good points of the image. nicely done

miningart, a little rough on that first one, but still, nice. and that grainy 2nd one is interesting, too.

very nice, palms

beautiful smudge, grant

i like that one, too, gerry. where'd the frame come from?

Re: Creative Interpretations: Smiling bright

i had a go at this. i made a new filter in filter forge. it's sort of a paint daub or pointilism or impressionist, or just junk... not real sure

both of these are from the same filter.

Re: Creative Interpretations: Smiling bright

hehe, ok, i can do these all night. i dont do this too often, but i took the output from one filter and fed it back into another filter; both filter forge filters, one mine, one someone else's.

Re: Creative Interpretations: Smiling bright

Thanks, Craig. The frame is one of my own. I make all my frames from scratch, or they were at one time. I have a collection of several "one side of a frame." The sides are all vertical and were started with the same colors. The thing that changes is what kind of layer styles I use. When I decide which one I want, I copy that side to my project. If the longest side is horizontal, I rotate the layer 90 degrees and scale it to fit the side of the picture and the thickness i want. Then I make a copy and rotate a side until I have a right angle. I miter the corner then merge the two layers. I make a copy of the resulting layer, rotate it 180 degrees and miter the remaining corners. I merge these two layers and add a few layer styles. From start to finish it takes about 5 minutes to do one.

Looks a little like Cheech of "Cheech & Chong."
