Apparently it is the house used in Mork and Mindy, for those of us that remember the show where Robin Williams got his start. I was stumped at first with what approach to take so I started playing. I ended up with a folkart-ish rendition, kind of in keeping with the idea that Mork and Mindy has gone down in the annals of TV lore, if anyone follows that line of thought 😉 The result is that I have no record of all the things I tried and undid and clicked on and tweaked. So not much help in the how-to department. I did start with a line draw rendering of it produced in PS Elements and moved on to HD and edges and a plug-in to smooth it out and I’m not sure what all else. Below that is a second rendering, this in keeping with Williams’ somewhat warped view of reality. Nanoo Nanoo, signing off.
