duplicate background

with magnetic tool..got as close to edges as possible to create a quick mask and then hand masked whatever else needed to be or didn't need to be.

Autocolored photo

I also tried DJ;s tut that Jak posted about...http://www.retouchpro.com/forums/sho...light=backdrop

cloned scan line out

Airbrushed the face a bit--added some pink to cheeks and lips

dodged around eyes and lips a bit

blurred some of face


applied unsharp mask to girl and dog

created oval vignette with and feathered edges and filled with some of the pink I chose for the background.

Selected mask of girl and dog selected image and expanded selection by 13 and applied gausian blur so I was able to get a overall blur on edges of girl and dog to fit into frame better.

I think that is it...

This was fun. Haven't had any practice in turning photo into portrait. And loved the new "tutorial" I had never seen before.

Very nice, it's close to what I had in mind when I started this challenge, then as most times I went askew off in another direction

Nice touch with the background color wrapping around the edges to form a vignette.

Lovely rendition -- puppy, pre-teen girl and pink! Good clean up and a lovely vignette effect.

I love the background it really brings out the girl's face and eyes.

I try to take one day at a time but sometimes several days attack me at once.
