Re: Yannis

or lylejk. lol

This is the only forum where I use my original handle that I actually used in college. I wish I could change it to lylejk, but that would make me loose my Senior status. lol

Re: Yannis

OB, thanks for the pic.

There's a wealth of great stuff here.

Vitaly, you continue to amaze me. I used your tute yet again. I'm curious, like sponge03, about what role Vivacity plays in your workflow. What does it do that I can't do with Topaz Adjust, Detail, and Simplify (all of which I use regularly)?

A bit of AHB.

Re: Yannis

Imagine my surprise when I checked this thread and discovered that I'd somehow failed to upload the attachment to my earlier post. Silly me.

As previously noted, it's an AHB watercolor following Vitaly's tute, mostly.

I use Topaz Vivacity to simplify the image sometimes before and after the AHB, after AHB sharpen edges. It allows you to get away from photographic.
I do not like Topaz simplify, it reduces colors. I use it for sketch.
