Emergency Cow

 

The author of this tutorial is Valentina Aynagos (Germany).

Have you ever happened to meet in a field grazing... a red cow? No, this is neither a warning sign nor a shooting target.

In 2005, in the capital of Switzerland, a discussion was held concerning a crucial issue - choosing an additional emblem for the International Red Cross and Red Crescent societies. Different countries offered their own symbols: the Star of David, a swastika, a diamond. One symbol in particular that was proposed was the Red Cow, symbolizing a peaceful animal that gives milk, and life. This proposal was not supported, but the author managed to take a photo of a mockup of the cow. The inscription on the label reads: "The original is in Switzerland".

    Original Photo Result

Turning the photo into a colorful poster was very easy:

  • Step 1. Open the photo in AKVIS ArtWork by pressing the button.

  • Step 2. Choose the Comics style from the drop down menu in the Settings Panel. The result based on the default settings (AKVIS Default) will be shown in the quick preview area. To prevent black lines from being drawn on the sky, reduce the Level of Detail parameter from 40 to 20:

    Default Settings Detail Reduced
    Default Settings Level of Detail = 20

  • Step 3. Press the button to process the image.
