Thanks Danny

Yes the action came from atncentral.com. Some really good actions on that site. Dave Jaseck comes up with some good ones too. I love actions. Do you have a website with actions and tutorials?

Melissa, good to see you over here. Maybe Phil will have a change of heart over Christmas, but this is a good place to hang out, too.

I decided to give this a try

I duped the Background layer. Then I made a selction around the model, inverted it and ran Find Edges. Desaturated. Diffuse: Anisotropic. Then I ran Angled Strokes a couple of times, playing with their Fades. Then I inverted the selection again and duped the Background layer again (So only model was duped) Stuck that on top of the stack. At this point duped the Background (without a selection) and I selected only the foliage in the pic and desaturated the rest. I made the layer "find edges/diffuse/angled strokes" layer a luminosity blend, and the model by herself a Lighten blend. Then I stamped everything and stuck a texture on it.

Art's in the eye of the beholder. You definitely manipulated the base photo to achieve a unique result. Nuthin' wrong with that.

Nice image....beautiful pose and model.

Here are two interpretations, but not because the photo needed anything.

Gazing Model redux

Just tried out this watercolor technique. It was from a free chapter in the book "Adobe Photoshop 7 One-Click Wow!"

It can be downloaded here http://www.peachpit.com/bookstore/pr...21125312&rl=1#

Basically it uses the pattern stamp tool with a custom brush. Create a pattern from the image and on a new layer start the painting starting broadly and then going for detail. I varied from Impressionist checked and unchecked.

There is a an action for putting texture onto the canvas also.

Once I was satisfied that it looked like a water color [quick and dirty though] I played around with ways of enhancing it. The eventual image came about after I used the UM filter pretty heavily.

Seems like a pretty interesting book. There is a cd with about 100 presets with it.
