I'm still playing with impressionist.

I've reached the conclusion that it works best with lots of layers. Started with the very blurry water color damp translucent and worked my way up to paint soft fine haired brush. In between I put 4-5 layer with degrees of blurriness that ranged between the top and bottom layers, putting the blurriest ones at the bottom. Blending mode was usually soft light, but I went with whatever was most pleasing as I added each layer. Even though I'm using Impressionist, the general process is to get several layers that range from blurry to semi-detailed and blend them--any plug-in (including native photoshop) could give comparable results.

After getting the impressionist blend. I topped it with find edges, then a gaussian blur sketch, then a photocopy sketch. Experimented with blending modes. Transparency between 30-40.

Added texture.

Invert Color Script-fu and Flaming Pear's Mr. Contrast.

Used Invert Color (only inverts colors; greyscales remain the same; not the same as color invert; i.e., black is still black and white is still white) Script-fu on a duplicate layer set to screen to screen in order to remove midtones. I then used Flaming Pear's Mr. Contrast to give the image that sketch feel (not wanting it to be a sketch though of course; still want it to be photographic). I then used retinex after flattening and duplicating the layer. I set the top layer (the one I ran Retinex on) to Overlay and duplicate this layer a few times till I got the look I want. I then used GIMP's Sample Colorized filter and a Sepia Gradient image to create a Duotone on a separate layer and blended it in with the previous.

Re: PHOTO ART: Mini-challenge #91 – Vietnamese Lady

This Lady looks like she has seen a lot of life.
Used Lucis, Aniso, some blurring, Selective colour, plus a lot of minor stuff.
Frame added using 2 different layer styles.
