Hi Steve, there are a number of techniques used in each image, usually takes me an hour or more to complete one. To long to explain in a forum post. Its whats known as ‘the painterly effect’ there are different ways to achieve the effect.

Without sounding rude, there are lots of YouTube videos on this effect, I just follow one I like the look of, then apply my twist to it, everybody has a different style to what looks good to them. I also use bog standard Photoshop, no plugins and maybe install a few brushes to add back some details that get lost in the process. I also have a graphics tablet which helps a lot, but can be achieved with a mouse, if you have a steady hand :slight_smile:

Hope this helps and thanks for your interest :slight_smile:

wow, good effort Ste, not to shabby, it actually looks painted on canvas :slight_smile:
Not familiar with gimps tools, but what about using a smudge, blend, mixer brush to soften the edges. might be a bit tedious though unless you have a gfx tablet?

Okay - but it seems you are missing a ‘t’.

I thought it was the irish ‘an’ which means ‘of’ in english.

i.e. Of Tech Designs.

they all look very ‘amiga-esk’ to me.

be nice if you could make a PPA for all-of-them you do ?

Either way - good luck with your linuxjourney :wink:

I agree; a PPA of your wallpapers that is occasionally updated would be nice. But it seems like too much work for something which lacks the same legacy as default wallpapers.


#159

Hi Ste, did you end up doing anymore to it?


#160

Hi Antech.

No, not had the time mate…:slight_smile:

@antechdesigns
Ante, you must have a lot of processor power and an excellent camera. Not to mention a steady hand.
I played with GIMP and it's not so easy. Having a good quality image to begin with makes plenty of difference.
