What a lovely Degas ballerina! Did you create the body from scratch? Very well done!

Yes and no...

I found a ballerina online that had her arms in the right position, then superimposed Sam's head on her. I isolated the frill around the top of Sam's dress and used that as the tutu after a lot of transforming and skewing.

I'm glad you liked it!

I have not been here in a while, but when I saw this darling picture, I could not pass it up.

I used PS usm, aniso, lighting effects, buzz pro, VP Oil Paint, and a number of textures.

Am new here, but had to reduce size of picture to get the quality I wanted. If someone has a better suggestion would appreciate hearing. Put picture in LAB mode and screened it, added cloud texture to it.

dandelion - this is a very unique interpretation and none like I have seen before on this popular challenge. I admire your creativity.

I welcome you to try other challenges. There is no expiration on any of them.

Congratulations! Everyone's done marvellous work!
Here's mine. Mostly fill layers and layer masks, one g'blur layer for softness, filter render clouds a few times with diff colors, fill color layer blue and mask, overlay blend low opacity with original to bring back a hint of the backgr. Brush used was watercolor low opacity for the effect.

Wow... She is beautiful, almost a living "Doll.".....

Thank you for the log, it is for both versions or just the second. That sure was a whole lot of "doings." HOw does one go about making a "log" like that?

One of most difficult steps, if not impossible for me would be the "Color Correction" and especially the "Selective Color." Are there charts that might help with just the basic colors. Like how to remove yellow or greens or reds, or add them. Sure hope so...

Getting closer to the 15th,... can't hardly wait for the release of your latest CD!!!

Hi Danny. I'm sending an scr capture of the layer palette if it can help.
Most important of all, i created a brush file with the original image for my impr plug-in....Here's how i do it -- Desaturate image, invert and apply g'blur of about 9. Save as a tiff file in the impressionist brush folder. When needed, use this file as a brush with these other settings:
General-bckgr-image; brush size 25%, coverage 100, pressure 55.
Brush - Tiff file, smudge 10, pressure 55.
Placement randomly coverage 100.
No. of sizes 7, from 2 to 12, about even.
Orientation optimally 16, 45, 360.
Color - stroke color image, H 0, S 10, B 10. Background - image. Brightness 50, contrast 70.
I call this my "soft watercolor" style. Sometimes i need to change the settings a wee bit, mostly brush size depending on the effect.
As for the other layers that u'll see in the layers palette image below, its pretty obvious. If not, feel free to ask anytime.
BTW by "merge" i mean "select all, copy merged and paste".
Also, maybe you'll be kind enough to create an impr settings file with my name.
