Thanks Craig.
I must admit I spent far too long on this. 29 layers to complete.

I may have taken that triangle up another pixel or so but the hair was aligning perfectly so I decided to leave it where it is. I did rotate the whole image a little.

By moving the bottom half of the picture up I think the mouth looks a lot better and definitely no teeth but the mouth still concerns me a little. I don’t know what is right. I could be close but then again so could Skyopal or anyone else.

I am also not sure what nationality she is. I balanced the shadows and highlights as one of my first steps to give me some detail so I could have changed the skin tone.
Marie from Los Angeles (Possibly) Does not really help.

Her blouse looked a little worn so I gave her a new one.

This is the first time I’ve played with the grid (I usually use guides) It would have been nice to move the grid over a little but I could not find how to do it. I’ll have to start reading again.


Ken.

yes, that little S in the lower lip is a bit odd. no matter how you align the pieces that S doesnt make a lot of sense. it might just be part of the tear marks. i think at this point i'd just clone/push it out and match up with the rest of the lip.

in psp i dont think you have move the grid over either, but you can change the box size, which is almost the same thing.

if you dont mind, i may take your results and do some more cleaning on it.

i think you've got the right of it, though. it looks much better!

Craig

Thanks Craig.

I don’t know if this is any use but I’ve attached the bits I used rotated to the correct angle to match my picture. It also shows you where I split the parts. It may help you a bit.

When aligning top and bottom, if you push the two halves a little closer together then that s curve could almost become part of the top lip. I did not do this because I thought the lips looked too thin.


Regarding the Grid.
All the options are under Edit > Preferences
You cannot move the grid over as you say but I did find one good feature. As well as being able to set the number of lines in the grid and the distance apart in cm, pixels etc. you can also set in Percent. This is great because if you set the grid to 25% then you know you have lines at 50% ie straight through the middle of the picture.

Ken.

ken,

i dont quite understand the percent thing with the grid. what's it do? not sure psp 9 has this. yup, just checked, psp doesnt have any percent thing. it has horizontal and vertical sizes in either pixels, inches or cm and a 'snap to' influence and a color setting, but that's it.

re how you split it and moving the bottom half up, ok. i'm gonna play with it a bit more.

Craig
