Default Moku Hanga

Most attempts to give pictures an attractive appearance by using Plugins that are claimed to make them look like oil paintings or water colors have generally seemed to me to fall rather flat.

However a program that I've just discovered, called Moku Hanga, claims that it can make a picture look like a Japanese wood block.

I've tried it several times on various landscapes but was disappointed until I tried it on a picture of spot in the Zen garden at Glendale Gardens in Victoria.

I was pleasantly surprised, partly by how easy Moku Hanga is to use, but even more because the result looks (to me) not unlike a woodblock. -

Nice. Matching the subject matter to the effect would seem to help a lot.

Yes it is quite surprising, and while I like it too, I think that placed next to a real woodblock it exudes a distinct hint of "Fake Woodblock".

On the other hand perhaps there is hope that the computer-generated kind may sometime become established as a separate genre?
