G’MIC Artistic Stylize: pencil, charcoal and pastel

I made another video about the style variations you can get with the Artistic Stylize filter in G’MIC for creating pencil, charcoal and pastel effects.

I learned recently that depending on whether the background of your main subject is light or dark the filter creates different results. Two for the price of one!

I’ll be writing another article on this soon since the one I wrote previously was before the pencil, charcoal and pastel textures were included for free from the 2.7 release of G’MIC.

I’ve created a pack of textures that includes some extra styles for the filter available on my Gumroad store here. To use the extra styles you have to use pattern fill method I wrote about here.
