Thanks Danny, I will. I saw the one you did with the wine glass and books, that was really good.

This one was done with the Artistic Filter rough pastels. I had to increase the resolution of the image before I ran the filter to get the kind of detail I wanted in the pastels. Then i downsampled again to the original file size.

I like the detail of her hair. It came out very well

Thanks Reason! I do pastels in "real life" (as opposed to digital) so I'm particularly fond of the pastel look in digital art. I'm always looking for new ways to get it looking more real. That's the great thing about these forums. I've learned so much from what other people have done.
So thanks for including all the detail in your explanation of what YOU did. It's hard to learn how to improve without some kind of hint on how a person got that "look" you like!

Line-art

Vector conversion techniques. Used Potrace for the conversion. If you have an SVG Viewer (get one free from Adobe or Inkscape), you can view the vector drawing by clicking here.

Facinating approach and very interesting results, Lyle.

Thanks for sharing those links...

Your very welcome Danny.

Sharing ideas, filters, tools so that other's can use and share their creations is what this forum is all about. It's amazing what people can do with the tools that they use. They do some things that you would not even think about.

Sorry that I've not, until recently, visited RetouchPro as often as I should. I've tried to make it a point to see what other's are doing daily now.

Coca Cola illustrated look.

Don't know if I pulled this one off. Anyway, the illustration was easy to do. Color Invert Dodged median skin tone to ligten it up a bit. Ran Flaming Pear's Mr. Contrast and set to overlay (duplicate layer of course) to enhance the contrast. Flatten, and duplicated the layer. I ran DCSpecial's 1969 filter and set to Value (still using GIMP; told you I was cheap) and adjusted down the opacity. This step (1969) is my favorite for illustrations since it accomplishes two things simultaneously (brights and enhances saturation and color). Then some mouse smudging (still need a Wacom, but still too cheap to buy one) and done.

Ikroll, I think that you are doing pretty darn good without the extras! Nice work.
