hmm well i prefer blur and sharpen. most of the times blur when its related to digital painting for the background enviornment. that creates a good mood.

It's about pencil, I think; you 'blur' it in process of using it (drawing), then you need to sharpen it again, to draw further ... and again and again ...

So I can't vote because it's the same question as what was before, egg or chicken (or something)...

No definite answer really. If I wasnt to get a chaotic more explosion-like brushing then I sharpen it, but If I'm going for some kind of soothing piece I blur.

So yeah, it depends on how I'm feeling while I brush...

Sharpen the senses because life is a blur.

actually if you want to make a photo look sweet ass bitchin' hawt, then there is a trick i was taught. if an image looks grainy you can blur. but then it looks blurry right? "duh" after you blur the image, duplicate the layer. then, do a 'filter/other/high pass' and set the radius to about 10. then just set that later to soft light. that will find the highlights in the image and make them more crisp. it works well for photo correction. (that is what i do, well, try to do)

sharpen then blur,
use once and destroy,
make it all feel worthless
while it isn't.
just another means of coding and decoding art.
deconstruction, babe.
...dunno, it's late :drunk:. please excuse possible meaningless ramblings. but you asked :-).

Voted sharpen because there was no "solarise" category. :|

Also because there was no "sharpen and blur" category -- to sharpen then blur implies a sequence, once must first sharpen before blurring. What if you sharpened and decided you only wanted to blur some things, not everything? This is often how people live -- seeing some things, deluding themselves into not seeing others.

Then again, why not leave things alone?

A combination involving layer masks, faded blurs, sharpens, etc. to lift out fine detail and smooth out any artifacts that need it. :D

Gaussian or lens blur? :P

sharpen then blur. i find sharpening an image once its been blurred makes little noisy dots if u do it a few times. sharpening first keeps the sharpness and blurring takes the edge off it and gives a better atmosphere

Sometimes I just want to blur it. It sounds more comfortable, to the eyes and to the heart.
