I salute your decision to "stop" at this point. This is a very unique and interesting interpretation, Manju. Well done.

Gazing Model

This was interesting and fun to do trying to get a watercolour effect.

"Impressionist"???? Seen it mentioned so much already in here, I must check it out soon.

PaintShopPro 8.01
Buzz Simplifier Filter (had it two weeks and using it a great deal)

Mostly experimenting but generally this is what I did....

(1) Smudged hair/Fine Hair Brush – lowered opacity
(2) Smudged/smoothed skin – default brush – lowered opacity
(3) Buzz Filter/Step 1/Light areas
(4) Cloned in some more flowers into white area
(5) Painbrush/dry brush…a darker shade of the flower…painted onto the flowers
(6) Smudge/dodged the darker leaves to lighten them
(7) Smudged/burned lower areas of flowers (not much though)
(8) Merged all visible
(9) Buzzed again/Both/just a titch
(10) Copied and pasted into a larger image, filled white.
(11) Top layer (image) erased the sharp edges.
(11) Merged and applied a mask.

Gazing Model - 2

This is another wc effect I quite like, worked well on this image.


WATERCOLOUR EFFECT USING GLOWING EDGES
PSP8.01

Smudge hair and skin.
Buzz Simplifer – Every image is different so you need
to experiment with Buzz settings.
Dupe this layer
2nd Layer – Effects/Artistic Effects/Glowing Edges –
settings 1 and 8 or to suit your image – experiment
Layer Blend Mode – Dodge – 30% - experiment
Merge both layers and dupe.
2nd Layer – Buzz again to suit and erase the eyes
and mouth to show through at a lowered opacity.
Merge when happy with result.

Optional – Some images benefit by duping the layer
- Trace Contour. Blend Mode – Darken.

This image didn’t benefit at all.

Beautiful model. Enjoyed all the superb renditions.
First i reduced colors using a vector software that i have, then many manipulations using image-selective color and replace color, finally with vp watercolor, and buzzpro for some simplification.

Hey, TA:

Welcome to the Photo-art forum and congrats on making your first arty post. All of us who play around at this sport started from the same spot: The beginning. The more you play and practice, the more methods you'll discover, which will lead to improved skills.

As long as you're having fun, that's what counts.

Keep 'em coming. No sharks around here.

~Danny~

Smile Sketch

Hi Danny,

This is MelissaM from dpreview. I came over here to have a look and see how I can help others. I still am unable to post over there. I guess Phil changed his mind about my one week ban. Oh well, I can't change his heart but wish him a nice holiday.

Anyway, I took this picture and used Isabels Pastel Sketch (one of my favorite actions) on it. I hope everyone likes it.

The picture can be found here at http://www.pbase.com/mnewco/image/37711252/original

Melissa:

You picked one of my favorites to arty-ize, and I like your results a lot. I believe that action is available at www.AtnCentral.com, is it not?

Welcome aboard. Hope to see A LOT MORE of you creativity here at RP.

~Danny~

p.s. Generally speaking we like folks to upload/attach images to their posts (click "manage attachments" button) vs. pBase links. That way when you revamp your pBase gallery sometime down the road, your creativity lives on here. That avoids the annoyance of "broken links."
