This is part of one of the entries in the Humboldt County Kinetic Sculpture Race.  It wasn’t a great photo, but after I did some image manipulation, I found that it had some, um, emergent properties.

Anyway, I oilified it, then reduced the saturation because the blue sky was a bit overwhelming, then sharpened it a bit.

Done in GIMP 2.6

Good Bad Santa

Last week when I was working on my portrait of me with my smoking hat, I tried a variety of effects.  One that I didn’t particularly like was LASM Line Art.  But despite the fact that I didn’t particularly LIKE the image, it kept reminding me of something, and I couldn’t figure out what.  But it kept bugging me all this week.

sockarangWell yesterday it finally dawned on me.

Yep.  I look like Sockarang as Good Bad Santa from Axe Cop.
