Today is the birthday of Alphonse Mucha, the father of Art Nouveau. A friend of mine had asked me how I would go about putting a face in a cloud using The GIMP so I thought I would combine the two in four easy steps.
Step 1: Find a cloud.
Step 2: Find a good picture (grayscale) and put it on a separate layer above the cloud.
Step 3: Frame the picture
Step 4: Set the layer to “soft light” and then mess with the opacity (this is about 70%)
Not my best work, but I think it will get him started in the right direction…
