Princess is my attempt at This Tutorial ... it was actually harder than I thought it would be.  Not happy with the mouth or eyes ... but by messing i was making it worse not better.

I see nothing wrong with the mouth or the eyes!  I think they were very good considering you were probably out of your comfort zone.

What are friends for? 


This is true.  But seriously, I wouldn't have thought of it.  Screen blindness  😉


@Pixey ...many thanks.  It's a good exercise in trying to get things to blend, but must admit I started to go my own way after a while 


@Maximilian ... mucho gracias ... the original tut' writer had the innovation ... I just piggy-backed 


@HELEN ... as always, great to see you and thanks for the visit and kind words


@Woodsy ... many thanks mate.   Definitely out of the comfort zone ... and my daughter isn't too keen.  Says it makes her look 'freaky' ... wasn't too impressed when I replied, "Yeah ... good likeness isn't it "


@Seerose ... many thanks.  I was thinking of making some museum pieces to go with it, but getting the right lighting is proving a bit difficult.

And thanks ... she looks like her Dad.  We'll find out who he is one day 🤣


@LionsDragon ... many thanks ... I recommend it ... a good chance to turn the hubby to stone 😁


thanks @Rickhum for the rep'   Cheer dude




G'MIC Hope Springs Eternal


I took this image 




... and used Cubism, Neon, Graphic Novel and Metallic Look filters .  Not sure if the 2 textures go together ?

@doughty @Maximilian - many thanks.  My personal head took over ... it ended up being a reflection of the past few years and all the MRi scans and chemicals pumped into my body ... plus as a fellow sufferer Doughty how the fibro' can course through you.   I think too much ... 


@lynxster4 ... many thanks.  Cubism filter can give some great results.  For stand alone images and backgrounds

As for the 'shroom trip ... thankfully the days of my friend's dog turning into a werewolf are long gone ... the silliness of youth. 


Thanks for the rep point too @Woodsy


On more cheerful reflection I prefer the original before I messed around too much

and that word was cwtch.


🤣 ... are you propositioning me?  I'm not that way inclined ... but slept with a man who is ... (joke)

Actually nothing wrong with a man hug 😉


If it's the programme I'm thinking of, I know one of the lads  men doing one of the cabins.  I used to coach him U9's to U15's .  Was a great Right- Back.  Hard as nails

Was one of them a slate cabin ?

but loved how they built it.


I'm amazed they got permission to build on a National Park ... maybe palms are being greased.  Councillors more corrupt than Politicians.  Allegedly ... 😁


I've only walked up Snowdon once ... thought I was going to get eaten by some wild beast when the mist started descending on the way down ... never been so glad to see North Walians 😨

Oops 😁 I only just noticed 'Contemplate' - sorry.  But it's a stunning image and the colors are my kind of colors :)


Fabulous rendition of Broken Britain (ain't that the truth) and I think the screen shot looks fine with the computer and components :star: I do understand how one agonizes over these things though 😱

@lynxster4 ... thanks ... I should have said the headphones aren't mine ... on the to do list, but I can't take credit for those.  I thought I'd do a  'dark'  image.  Just for a change.


@Seerose ... many thanks ... years of practice and a sad life in front of a pc screen, means I make images with lots of bits in


@Pixey ... thanks ... I'm not going to get started on the state of Britain, we're a joke.

I think we can look at our own work too long and either love it or hate it.  Depending on moods.

Contemplate ... it's always nice to do a bright image.  i don't know why I don't do more.  ( I know the wife would say, it's because I'm a miserable so and so)



Follow on image from the lamp tutorial.  Heavily plugin'ed ... without them I couldn't have done it


@MJW's Height Map plugins and Trail Blur  @Ego Eram Reputo's Planetoid for 3 different textures @BoltBait's Feather, Black & White +, Bevel Selection, Remove Dust and Checkerboard @Red ochre's Fur Blur for the background ... also Seismograph, Tile Image and Dents Classic on the background
