    Re: Irises

    Love the colour combination you've used here, Grant. How do you change colours like that?[/QUOTE]


    I'm not too sure how the colour changed, I threw everything at it and I can't remember everything I did.I did use Topaz Clean and a Fractalius overlay and I used the glass filter and a couple of texture layers.

I noticed that if the last step is the reduction in size for the forum that some of the effects might be lost.

    I really enjoy and have learned a lot from all the various effects everyone comes up with, creativity knows no bounds.
    Thanks for that info, John. Need to spent more time playing with the Impressionist plug-in. So much to experiment with and so little time to do so. <grin>

    Oh that is nice. Especially like the slight hint of colour in the background. Nicely done, Joe.

    Some pretty amazing plays here, folks. Glad you had some fun.

    Nice one, John. I have an Impressionist plug-in for Paintshop Pro. Grabbed a number of presets from this board. But still need some more practice with it. Curious, do you find that there is an optimum file size (pixels size) that works best with the plug-in?

    had a mess around (as usual should of been doing something else )
    first one a coloured sketch with a couple of textures added
    second buzzed the used cutout filter and some color tweaking
    Especially like that first one with the added textures. But both a super. Thanks for playing, Palms.

    Lots of tweaking, blending, and nudging finished off with a blended version from Fotosketcher
    That Fotosketcher is an amazing piece of software, made even better by its price tag. <grin> You tweaked, blended and nudge it quite well here. Nicely done, OlBaldy.

    What a gorgeous shade of pink you achieved, Amica. I love it!

    LOL! Lyle, if I learned nothing else lurking in these forums this past while is to expect a certain type of play from you. And you never disappoint. <grin> My only nit with this image is I had to get up and move back about twenty feet so I could see the irises. <Big Grin> Thanks for playing.

    And thank you Dan for such an excellent image in response. As Lyle has already comment, I also love the realistic oil brush strokes. Might I ask how you created this?

    Again, thanks to everyone for playing.

    Excellent result Dan. Really like the realistic oil strokes (still now able to simulate this looseness with filters, though DAP has helped some). Kudos.
