Return of the Queen

Return of the Queen

Who else admires #CliffChiang's version of the Olympians?

I do like the character design especially the peacock feather cloak with its references to the Argus myth. Good strong clear lines contrasting with dark areas giving the colorist plenty to work with.

Making Brocade ... well trying to

I've been trying to figure out how to combine #GIMP filters and plugins to create a effect that looks like #brocade.

Here's a few of my experiments Copyright Julie Vaux 2014 so please don't download them yet. I will share some of them when I finish the experiment!

Yes that is the kanji / hanzi for brocade JIN or nishiki in Japanese.

The closest I could get was a combination of three and no none of them were Clothify or Weave and Embroider is too slanted and stitch like!

Can try anything that alters horizontal rows of pixels and let me know if you find something that works better please?
