NiteOwl:

Welcome to RetouchPRO. Having new folks join us with fresh ideas is always a delight. Your #2 rendition is especially striking. I like this one "a lot."

We are especially fortunate to have a forum dedicated to this art-form, thanks to the vision of our webmaster Doug Nelson and the numerous folks who generously post their wonderful creations and willingly share techniques and help other folks.

The forum software offers flexibility that others do not, namely the ability to upload files, e.g., actions, textures, .jpgs, etc. w/o resorting to external sites such as Pbase.com. This upload model works very well to reduce the number of "broken links" inherent in the embedded URL method. Uploads ensure the value of threads specifically (and the site in general) will not diminish over time.

Anyway, WELCOME again... hope to see more and more of your creations as time goes along. Tell your friends!

~Danny~

Daddy's Litle Girl

The work everyone has done is so good! Anyone would like to have Samantha's picture on there desk. Speaking of which, here is my humble submission.

dupped layer (of course)
extracted Samantha (actually I just deleted anything that did not look like a little girl - didn't like the extract results)
a little gauzian blur - maybe more than I should have
added grey layer behind her
render - lighting effects - soft omni

If I need a picture of a little girl for my desk she will be the one!

Very nice results. The lighting and "softness" are a very effective combination.

Such a pretty photo and such a lovely young lady!

Thought I would play around with Painter and try to create an oil...only my second attempt at learning Painter. I used numerous size brushes with the camel brush oil cloner. Then I saved the image and opened it in PhotoShop where I added a level adjustment and a frame using Splat.

Took my oil version and applied John Buchmann's sketch technique then applied angled brush strokes.

Both are very nice, T.

Only your 2nd try w/Painter? Wow. That's impressive. Lots of folks getting into that program these days. Best wishes as your skills develop in that dimension, too.

NiteOwl - just looked at you post again. Very nice. Wonder how it would look colorized? This is such a pretty little firl it would be hard not to do a good job!

Wink As soon as I figure out how to use Photoshop....

Bubba, thanks once again for commenting on that picture,...I just wish I could have done more! I agree color would have just been the cat's meow!

However, at this point in time, I have figured out only how to open a picture in PhotoShop,...I am not advanced enough yet to dooooo anything!!! This is driving me nuts. But I will eventually, and then, you betcha,...I will try this one again! With some color of course!

Just learning, been using PhotoDraw for years, and just recently on photos,..so, I have lots of homework ahead. Hey, if you can make it happen, by all means, go for it!

Take care, and gosh golly jeepers,..thanks for piping in and adding your comment!

NiteOwl

Here is one more oil. I took the oil I did in Painter and opened in in PhotoShop where I applied some layers with emboss and texturizer to bring out the paint strokes.

This is a fantastic pic! I can't possibly comment on all the great entries...there's too much diversity and great work to single any out, and I wouldn't want to forget any from this challenge.

For this, I wanted to try to duplicate a Degas feel, so I turned Sam into a ballerina. What little girl doesn't want to be a ballerina? (Well...I wanted to be a carpenter, so I guess I don't count. )

I used Paint Engine several times as well as PS sprayed strokes. I don't think I quite got it right for Degas...not enough texture to the strokes and not enough yellow. I do like how it turned out, though.
