Re: A crack at pointillism. :)

Hey Kent,

I used some of the Paint Engine's Artic and Fresco presets (sorry that I can not remember where I downloaded the Fresco preset from; Arctic comes from the same link as shown below) to create most of the effect. Before all that, I used Toadies "Picasso's Last Word" filter as a blend for just the background to give it a more painterly look (wanted to remove as much of the photographic nature of the piece as possible without distorting the subject). After applying Paint Engine, I also used Xero's Improver to both smooth and sharpen the piece from using GIMP's bumpmap filter for additional texture. Anyway, I agree that it is very impressionistic; I believe Pointillism occurred later as part of this same movement, but don't quote me on that.
