Lots of neat renditions. Nice photo as well.....

I chose to transform her into a canvas portrait.

The steps I used were:

1. Soft Focus
2. Added a white frosted edge
3. Softened the whole image
4. Added a soft canvas texture using a depth of 1
5. added a ficticous signature and frame

Semara:

I like what you've done here; a subtle and soft approach. Well done.

Angue, the mottled brush texture is just perfect for this picture! Excellent!

Phili, I like the way you made the background elements all one color...really emphasizes her face, and the warm gold tones are the perfect choice.

Danny, that's amazing! Looks like it's appliqued from bits of fabric. There is no end to what you can do with pixels, is there?

Jill, really nice job with the sketch method, which was hard to use on this picture due to all the speckles it left on her face. You managed to work around that problem however and got a great result. The vignette is a good finishing touch too.

Semara, great portrait. Your softening method got rid of the boring background at the same time it softened her wrinkles while still letting her age and wisdom show through.

what a varied batch
Phyliss- abstract is unique and with bold strokes and your sketch is, again, an intrest holder. thanks for the link to the tutorial, gonna print it out and give it a try.

Jill- that craquelure background is very effective...great texture. your 1st sketch came out real good too.

Pam- good background replacement...a nice soft yellow, and smooth face. looks like an illustrator did it.

cj- so mellow and rich

Jerry- that matted torn edge is super...nice texture.

themanda- glowingly rich

Jean- like the fountain of youth...i'll bet she would love to see the full version. like the comparison.

Ken- love the brush strokes...makes it look like a real painting.

Chuck- dreamy is right. another good torn edge. thanks for the steps.

Angue- nicely matted and framed

pili1- another good torn edge. this pic works well with it.

Danny- 13 steps! wow! wrote them down. great matte and a real painting effect. thanks.

semara- very nice framing

these were all super!

Here's my try. And unfortunately, I was working very fast and feeling very sick (I have a bad cold), and I didn't save all my layers or take notes. But I can tell you the basic technique.

I made several Virtual Painter effects, each on a different layer. I am almost positive that the Drawing effect was one of them. Then I set blending modes with the layers and the original. And I remember doing a slight dose of buZZ at one point. This gave me a rough result. Then it was all standard photo restoration and adjustment techniques to remove oddball filter results and to tame the lines and color.

Andrew, that's a wonderful result! Too bad you can't recall exactly how you did it. I hope you can recreate the effect, since you will want to use it on future pictures I'm sure...it's great!

Chuck, your wife is a pretty lady! And that's a great painting of her. What did she say?

Your Wife

What a wonderful portrait of your wife. Are you going to submit this as a Mini-Chalange? I think you have peaked all our interest to give this picture a try.

Here's my try, using Mike Finn's Slap-Dash2 action and a couple of texture overlays.
