Stacks

Some experiments what happens when you layer highlights on top of each other.

Here i used three basetext-layers, each one shrinked a bit.
There is one big bevel, with the highlight slightly blueish and three bevels on top of it. Each one tightened with an alpha-curve.

If you want to study the effect, here is the .xcf-file:

If you duplicate the layer and apply 'G'MIC Relief Light' set to 'Value' Mode, you get this:


And even more filtering :)



In these two variations, the light comes from the side, with shadow and highlight the same colour, merged down and on normal mode. Then all modified with alpha-curves.

LASR_parameterization

Playing around with G'MIC:
[G'MIC] Tiled parameterization : -gimp_parameterize_tiles 10,10,0
[G'MIC] Isophotes : -gimp_isophotes 7,0,0,0




LASR: Fire & Ice

Exploring the possibilities of G'MIC, i found the Color Temperature Filter (thats under Colors).
I wasnt totally happy with the LASR text i posted yesterday, but this filter improves the overall effect from hot to cold !
