Hello and welcome Jeree

Just thought i would ask " did you forget to attach your image" ?
You can get carried away and forget I have done it on numerous occasions ( real handy having a edit button )

anyway hope you enjoy your stay here

Re: Creative Portraits: Grandma

An Arcimboldo interpretation. Follow this thread on a cool utility that I used for the majority of the rendering (had to add a few things manually still; created a GIMP Image Hose of Arcimboldo parts to finish things off). Note that the utility is very limited now and in Alpha stage of development (limits to 700pxX700px), but I see extreme promise in it not only for Arcimboldo interpretations.

Re: Creative Portraits: Grandma

Actually another fan {note that the site is in Czech} created his own packs and a object pack creator. Haven't played with the creator yet, but have played with his custom packs which is cool. I'm very hopeful that the creator of this gem will do what he said and allow for bigger renderings then 700X700. You may have noticed too that the width needs to be greater then or equal to the height or you get a cut-off. Still fun play.
