Leonid AOP

Posted by Rocambole on Oct 18, 2012 in AOP Templates

Leonid Afremov (born 12 July 1955 in Vitebsk, Belarus) is a Russian–Israeli modern impressionistic artist who works mainly with a palette knife and oils. He developed his own unique technique and style which is unmistakable. Afremov is mainly known as being a self-representing artist who promotes and sells his work exclusively over the internet with very little exhibitions and involvement of dealers and galleries.

Before the advancement of online sales and eBay, Afremov was a struggling artist. He was born in Vitebsk, Belarus, and lived there until 1990. Between 1990 and 2002 he lived in Israel, and from 2002 to 2010 in Boca Raton, Florida. Afremov currently resides in the popular resort town Playa del Carmen, Quintana Roo, Mexico, near Cancun. He paints mainly landscape, city scenes, seascapes, flowers and portraits. Most of his work is considered very colorful and politically neutral. (From Wikipedia.)

This AOP is trying to recreate his style, with big palette knife strokes gathered from his own paintings.

Squary

Posted by Rocambole on Apr 16, 2012 in AOP Templates

This AOP was on the old and long gone DAP forum and was created by Honzakov. It has been asked for a few times the last couple of years so I have now taken the liberty of uploading to the café to make it more easy to find. I suppose Honzakov (who has not been present in years) won’t mind.

Intaglio / Intaglio Fine

Posted by Rocambole on Dec 6, 2011 in AOP Templates

I don’t remember who created these two fine AOPs since they didn’t come with any informative help files. They were originally published in the old and long gone forum and the creator seems to have left us. But I suppose he or she doesn’t mind them being distributed one more time.

New Simplified Way of Distributing user templates

Posted by admin on Sep 19, 2011 in AOP Templates, Authors Guides

Beginning version 2.5.4 DAP has new build-in way of archiving templates for distribution as a single DPK file and also correctly installing those archives from the created dpk archive.
This should avoid the confusion what files go where for users trying to install the template and also make easier to collect all the files when distributing.

Deep Forest

Posted by Rocambole on Aug 11, 2011 in AOP Templates

In the beginning this AOP seemed only suited for forest paintings and was therefore named Deep Forest. It was primarily meant for paintings with large, rough strokes but in the end I also made a version with thinner strokes. It now has several palettes and is hopefully also usable for other motives than trees.

Classics AOP

Posted by Rocambole on Aug 3, 2011 in AOP Templates

During creation of new AOPs I make lots of brush strokes and colour palettes that I don’t use. But sometimes I find out that one certain set of strokes works better with another palette than the one it was meant for. Classics is a collection of four different styles made of previusly unused combinations of colour palettes and brush strokes.

Gruppe_wc

Posted by ghealy on Jul 25, 2011 in AOP Templates

Gruppe_wc was created by Vitaly (also known as Piker77). I have no blurb’ to post along with this AOP.  I can say it is one of my favourite AOPs, I particularly like Palette #8 on water scenes as seen in the example on the left.  FWIW, the sample was run at defaults with no additional processing.

My thanks to Vitaly for creating this AOP and for giving me permission to upload it to the Cafe.

Automatic AOP

Posted by ghealy on Jul 21, 2011 in AOP Templates

The AOP was created by Automotion

Automotion wrote this about the AOP:

“A very versatile AOP, just needing a bit of contrast work in post processing”

“The early stages can give interesting results. (strokes 2000 to 5000).
If you don’t mind letting it run for 50-60k strokes, you can remove the dry reveal.”

“Have fun!”

Here’s the download file: Automatic

FunkyOils

Posted by ghealy on Jul 21, 2011 in AOP Templates

AOP created by Mary Warner and uploaded to the Cafe with her permission.

An example of an image created with teh FunkyOil AOP with additional post workMary wrote the following about this AOP:

“This AOP is a fun attempt at imitating simple oil brush strokes and duplicating the colors in the underlying photo. There is no effort to mimic any known painter’s style. Works well with landscapes, animals, flowers and some portraits. Default/recommended settings are 50%/50% Expressive / Realistic, 90% Wet, 50%/50% Faithful / Impress, 100% Real. Experiment with the Wet / Dry setting for a slightly different look. Dry reveal does not run unless you create a mask. Use your mouse to bring out more detail.”

“There are 3 palettes which all use virtually the same colors. However, each has a different “brush” texture. Experiment to see which one works best on a particular painting. “Paper” canvas is used by default; try “oil” or a custom canvas for interesting variations.”

The AOP can be downloaded from here:

TexturedPaint AOP revisited

Posted by ghealy on Jul 21, 2011 in AOP Templates

Back in October 2009, Mary Warner posted this AOP. Unfortunately, the files were in the old forum and the links no longer work.  Mary has been quite busy and hasn’t been able to edit her original post.  As we can only edit our own posts,  I’ve decided to upload my copies so any who would like to download this AOP can do so.

Mary's sample image created from this AOP

The  file size prevents me from uploading the AOP into the Cafe.  So instead,  I’ve placed them on my account at Mediafire

The AOP  files are  in two parts:

The AOP itself which goes into the objectpack directory

TexturePaint.zip

The Help files  which go into the Help directory

TexturedPaintHelp.zip
