Thank you Lyle, I'll try it using gradient. :)

I did another try, I think it is a little closer to an icy look but not totally. I must practise much more. :)

Image Thanks Lyle. I worked it out. My Pines have turned into Jacarandas which is appropriate for Queensland in Summer. I like to do snowy pictures to take my mind off the heat.

Lyle, I've tried hard to get a closer result to yours, but it's impossible even using metallic something. Any other tip, please? :tyspin

Again, when you have two layers, then, either convert the top layer to b/w or run the engrave preset and then run Delaunay on both layers setting the top layer to difference, you will get a more crystallized result. If you run it on your target, the result will look more like what you have (and indeed I originally had to do all kinds of manipulation on the elf original and still wasn't happy with that result). :)

Now you got it. Do some level adjustments and use the metallic something gradient mapping and you would get a result like mine (prior to the sparkle step and other blends that I sometime add such as my ruby texture (did I not tell you all that too? lol). I do this very subtlety; almost not necessary, but for the large dark voids, it helps (of course I desat/adjust the color as I see fit with this texture as well as lower the opacity to taste). :)

Thank you Lyle. Nice ruby texture, I'll use it. :bigthup :tyspin

Darn, just discovered I don't have the engrave filter. I cannot add new filters until I get a new mcgimp with the latest G'mic. sigh.

You can try other blends such as paint then dup and apply cartoon (both G'MIC presets that's been in existence for a while) 2-ton. The blend possibilities are limitless. Just play I say. Don't take anything I share as gospel. More than one way to skin a cat. :)
