Phil, wow...really great job on that first one! (The second one has colored specks showing here and there for some reason.)

Jim, Deep Paint does a nice job. Does it do it all for you or do you have to add brush strokes etc. also?

This one is just a bright soft focus with darkened background to set her off even more. Made a dupe b/w layer set to hard light, then gaussian blur followed by equalize adjustment. Duped that layer, keeping same mode setting, then lowered opacity so the back wasn't tooooo dark. Placed dupe of original above these and set to color mode. Touched up the hair with dodge tool just a touch to keep it out of the shadows, did some color tweaking, then merged.

The equalize adjustment is useful for some pretty nice effects. I used it yesterday on the flowers, fish, and produce (described there), and now I've found something else I like about it. I just put a post in the forum on Photoshop Filters describing two ways to use it in combination with gaussian blur, along with samples of each.

Phyllis,

With Deep Paint you have to do virtually everything yourself. It is labor intensive. There is, however, a great deal of control. Lots of brushes and textures each of which can be modified to suit your personal taste. It functions either as a PS plug-in or as a stand-alone program. It is PC only...Mac version is yet to be released.

A fully functional preview version (60 days or 40 hours) is available at http://www.righthemisphere.com/products/dpaint/

Sounds a lot like Painter, which I have but seldom use because there is so much labor involved. Then again, I have yet to read the manual...gotta get to that when things slow down here I guess.

Abstract Samantha. See my last submissions in flowers #62 and produce #63 minis for basic technique. I also did some extra things here though to get the color added in cutout form also, and removed some unpleasant lines from her face.

Absolutely fantastic work everyone

I painted this beautiful little girl in Painter Classic using a different brush this time. Palette knife, fne dry brush. Gives more of a soft look, I need more practice with this brush! When done opened in PS, duplicated, image adjusment, desaturate. Styles, photographic effect, grey green tone. Blend mode, darken, adjusted until soft coloring came through. I was trying for a soft, old fashioned tinted look. Oh well, I had fun, and a lot of practice with the dry brush Thanks everyone for sharing your wonderful talent.

Question Samantha Angel

I love everyones work here. Hard to come up with something that has not already been thought of.

this little girl looked like an angel to me.

made cloud background, cut out girl and pasted onto new back ground, used slight antimatter on girl and the put a very soft rainbow glow.

tamalyno34...

Not to worry about the upload thing. Happens all the time.

You may be new (and WELCOME, by the way), but you've certainly made a great first impression.

Your interpretation is very creative. Hope that you'll participate in more mini-challenges in the future. It's always nice to see fresh ideas.

If there's anything I can help you with, don't hesitate to send me 'private mail' (PM button below/left) or post questions in the forum. Lots of folks will be eager and glad to help.

Again, welcome... and keep havin' fun!

~DannyR~

Wink I like this one better

Although I waited nearly 8 hours to submit the first attempt once I completed it, I still was not happy. So I took another stab and I like this one much better. I use PhotoDraw 2, and try to keep as much of an actual photo in the picture as I can. What a wonderful forum!

Take care,
NiteOwl
