Flashback to the 80's?

Jeez this picture is dated! Check the white bangle bracelet and hair bow!

Today I adjusted my method a little to give the image a little bit of a colored pencil effect. I started by duplicating layer and then selected all. Inverted and changed mode to grayscale. Then I changed blending mode to color dodge and used filter blur, gaussian blurr until I like the effect. Changed color mode back to RGB and saved it as mini-challenge charcol. Then I opened the original and selected all and copy and pasted it to my new charcol image. This time, I dragged the original below the charcol layer - and voila! I added a slight border with AutoFX to soften some of the darker areas.

Here is mine - I couldn't take the 80's thing so I updated her a little. Body parts are just pieces from different pics I found and the art part is just poster edges and some blending modes and some blur.

When I saw this beautiful lady I thought of a beautiful swan. I painted her in Painter Classic using mostly the just add water brush, a little air brush on cheeks. I had this background I scanned many blue moons ago, and thought this challenge was an opportunity to use it. I softened it alot. Selected her roughly and deleted her original bkgrnd and copy pasted her into the swan bkgrnd, cleaned up the edges w/eraser. That's it. Again thanks, Danny

I love all three!

Lisa, I really like your colored pencil rendition! I have copied your instructions and will try it tomorrow...thanks for sharing it!

Chiquita, your "style update" is wonderful...LOL! I love it!

Wanda, that is really beautiful. I haven't tried the "add water" brush but will definitely do so after seeing your great results!

wOW, some really nice entries here this time. My kinda subject too.
Phyllis: you can keep your whole image if you just compress it in jpg. I do it on all of mine.
Phyllis, good work in Painter, it's a blast huh?
Wanda, nice colors and presintation.
Lisa, I like the light airiness, and the WC look of the colors.
Wish I had time to join in.

Ya, but I really hate what too much compression does to a jpeg. I'd rather have less picture of better quality than more picture of less quality. With the increase in disk storage and speed these days you'd think over-compressed jpegs (on the web in particular) would be a thing of the past, but not so. Folks still seem to want to pack all those pixels into 8K so it opens in an instant! I'd rather wait a while to see a pic on the web than to see a blotchy blurry mess. Just a condition of today's "world in a rush" I guess. Maybe I'm just too old.

I'm interested in Quality more than most. I just smash the ones for posting here or another 1 or 2 forums, but they are not used for the archive or even saved for very long. Do mine look bad, or over smushed?

No, not that I've noticed. But then your paintings tend to be soft, pastel, more "smeary" (because they are painted, of course) and not very contrasty --all very appropriate for your subject matter. Pics with more contrast are the ones most affected by compression, with those annoying blotchy patches at the edges of bright and dark areas, and the worst blotches tend to occur in saturated and darker areas. Your pics avoid both, so you don't lose that much by compression.
