Re: Portrait

Okay...I took a shot...
Cleaned up my photo with levels, and a little shapening.
I created a layer..added some blue and yellow and smudged it around.
Then created mask to bring ou the pic from below.
Then tried a little smudging of the photo.
I think if I have the right brush, the right pressure, the right stroke, and a little more time and practice..I'd have something, but I still definitely like YOURS!

Re: Portrait

i like the hair, background, clothing, love the eyes, and like the lips/teeth and ears.

i dont like the shading at the sides of her forehead... too strong. dont like the shading over her lip/under her nose....just a bit too strong. and especially dont like the cheeks... too pink. also have lost a bit of depth with the cheeks to the eyes by removing the shadows, but this is almost irrelevant to this piece.

so, this is just what i like and dont like about it, not whether it's 'good' or 'bad'.
