Re: Hat woman

Maybe a little more texture in the background to help soften the transitions.

Re: Hat woman

My thanks to all, in particular Chillin,

Butch, I like the idea of adding a little texture, it has blended the background in more, but it is going to be printed on canvas so the texture is there anyway, did you use the same method to select her hair as Chillin? what ever I did I was left with loads of crap all around her hair until I used the "elimblack" plugin, even then it was pure stubborn pig headedness that made me not give up until I got it "almost as good as Chillin"

Anyway here's my final effort, my stubborn streak has now been well and truly beaten out of me :-)

Regards to all....John

Edit,
Just noticed the lighter patch in her hair by her right ear, honest it doesn't show on the full size image :-) which is 638mb!

Re: Hat woman

I think you did an excellent job. I just used the red channel but below is a touch up just drawing a few hairs to fill things out... Another option.

Re: Hat woman

You are obviously a much better artist than I, when I painted hair in it looked like worms sticking out of her head ;-)
