Always a softy for soft glow effects; especially ones that keep the main subject in focus. Good job.

I thank you sir.

This is a technique working up to photo to cartoon-ish effect. Not quite there yet, but trying. Some images look more cartoonish when using this technique. This one just came out with the soft glow you see.

BTW, I am really overworking your Van Gogh presets. Haven't posted but a couple. Trying to avoid overkill, but it really makes for some interesting effects on some of the images I have used it on. It really comes a lot closer than any VG's I have tried.

No particular reason.

Just trying to emulate this guys stuff; did a better job on another photo, but that one wasn't mine, so I can not show you.

Dup
Invert top layer
Gaussean blur top layer (high amount)
Set top to Overlay
Copy base layer to top and set to Color
Duplicate Center layer to taste
Do some selective cleaning where needed (you'll see)
Flatten
Duplicate layer
Bumpmap filter (yes I used GIMP)
Set the top layer to Overlay and adjust opacity to taste
Sharpen eyes and hair
brighten eyes some more
Clean color artifacts in hair (didn't have to on the other sample, but had to here)
Invert the backgroung (wanted it black instead of white, but you don't have to do this step).

Done.


Here's a link to a better example (thanks Britt).

I have absolutley no idea what I was trying to do with this one at all.
I would just like to say, that in the making of this no pixels were harmed at all, just a little shaken.

The advantages of being a newcomer, being able to work with images the 'old timers' have forgotten about, particularly ones as good as this...
Below is my painted version......
