Phyllis, all beautiful. My favorite is the second, color rendition.
Jill, very bold.
Jean, very realistic sketch. Lighting effect works!
Jerry, perfect use of the sketch.

Mine is a straightforward watercolor/pencil look that I think transforms the angry look to a more mysterious look. Used some of Psy's colour technique.

Once again this group maintains high marks! Great picture to work with Phyllis! I like your color pencil version, as well as Bill M. Jill and Jean I also like your sketch versions, and Jerry - your BW is awesome!
Here's my rendition- I wanted to bring out the eyes

I went for the rough look. Layer copy with smart blur edges only, inverted and eliminate white filter. Faded and set to overlay. Flattened and desaturated. Played with curves to bring out details. Added canvas texture and background of noise gradient overlay. Used one of Bud's frames.

Phyllis all your versions are wonderful, your color one is my personal favorite.

TwinbNJ, your's has a rough look that really seems to fit the image.

TwinANJ, the lighting effect really enhnaced your version.

Jerry, the B&W version is spectacular.

For mine, I used the same as I did for Chuck's wife challenge. This one just looked like a perfect candidate.

I got to messing around with the layers that were created using Bud's latest actions, Simple Portrait, and came up with this version. The top layer, called Photo Copy, I smart blurred from my former entry version, and set the blend mode to Multiply. The other picture version, called Photo, I set the blend mode to Linear burn, which brought out the colors beneath it (the color of the frame, which was set to a light blue/cyan). This almost looks like some of the art I have seen in comic books.

Same layers as above, but top layer set to Difference blend mode, lower layer inverted and set to multiply.

I wanted to play with this one. This young lady is so pretty, but what an attitude! I thought I'd see what she'd look like with a twinkle in her eye, instead of a glare.

All great submissions! I particularly like all of the sketch treatments...this photo lends itself well to that.

My son saw her picture, and said "Oh, Momma! That girl's naughty!" and I had to agree with him. She's clearly up to no good! So I took it and ran with it, and eventually ended up with something that looks like the cover of a horror novel or something. I guess I was thinking "firestarter" while working on her...

Jerry, nice soft look, even down to the oval mat. And a really lovely b/w portrait which sets off her eyes. You are clearly in the minority here seeing her as “soft,” judging from all the others.

Jill and Jean, both nice sketches, both with a roughness to them that seems to befit her expression. I like the spotlight.

Bill, two “serious” looks, neither naughty nor nice, just pensive. Really like the second one, the way it emphasizes her eyes.

BK, more good “rough gal” looks. I especially like #3 with the bright comic book colors.

Ken, the symmetric look works well on this pic...gives her a “cuter” look than her normal pout.

Tyeise, you really captured her naughty twinkle! Removing the hand changed the mood quite a bit, making the picture more lighthearted.

Amanda, great painting as usual. Those Satanic yellow are really shocking! Reminds me of “Rosemary’s Baby.”

While I was playing around with smart blur simplification and the distort>diffuse-glow filter, I stumbled upon a much older look, and a really vampish face at that. Could it be that this rugged little tomboy could grow up to be a femme fatale?
