Portrait of a Gentleman.
Done in Painter Oils with opaque round oil brush and camel oil cloner for details. Background was painted and blended with a color set generated from the picture. Texture(raw silk) was applied selectively to give a more realistic look.
If anyone knows of good framing plugins (reasonable or free, of course), I would appreciate them passing the info along.

there are 'borders' and 'edges' plugins, but never seen a free frame one. fairly easy to make your own and set them to a script or 'save as frame', however. still, i wouldnt mind knowing of a good one too.

This is my first time participating - I hope I'm doing this right!

First I found a great stock photo that would complement the man in the background. Then I pasted the original photo onto it. Flipped it horizontally. Then changed the original to a layer mask and removed everything but the man.

I cropped the background so the proportions fit properly. Then using the clone tool, I gave him an elbow on the left side.

I reduced the brightness of the man so he fit the lighting in the background.

Merged the two layers and then used a filter (canvas texture) on it. Then I used the cross hatch filter.

I then created a border and filled it with brown. I used texturizer>footprints and then gave it a drop shadow and a bevel to make it look like a frame.

Tada I thought that his pose was the sort you would see in the old paintings like my grandparents have hanging in their home.
