Re: Help for Sister-In-law

Thanks Craig. Autotrace is cool. When I port the resulting SVG file into GIMP, I retain the paths and then stroke the path for the outlines. How cool is that. Sort of looks Picasso'ish anyway.

edit:
Just finished posting my response and you posted something that caught my eye too. Been trying to figure out how to make one of those CG wireframes recently. Maybe you can mod your preset to get to that type of look.

Peter - What technique did you use to get that soft sketchy look?

Re: Help for Sister-In-law

hmmm, a true wireframe. interesting idea. i did look at it in that filter i used and no, it wont really do a true wireframe as is. i did mod it a little to make it a bit more versatile, but i'd have to have a really good find all edges, i think, before i could do a good wireframe. still, i dont think it's impossible.

the technique used to make that stringy image i did is actually pretty simple and could probably be adapted to make a more true wireframe. i'll thunk on it

I think "overwhelmed" would be an understatement...thank all of you so very much for your input, especially Ol Baldy for that very precise explanation. As soon as I get a finished portrait, I will post it for your comments and critique. Thanks again.
