Creative Exchange: Fractalius Hawk

Hey Mike, this is for you.  Last December I had a hawk visitor on my deck and when I posted this picture Mike suggested I try the fractalius filter on it….I loved the idea, but haven’t had time until now to play.   Besides using the filter, I also added a texture and a frame.   I thought it turned out kind of funky!    Thanks for the idea Mike!

I have had quite a few requests about the fractalius filter….you can find info on it here:     Fractalius Filter

Here is the original:
