PHOTO ART: Mini-challenge #99 – Carolina

Here’s another “mini-challenge” to play with in the Photo-based Art category until the next major challenge is posted here.

The base image can be downloaded by clicking the link below the photo description.

Here’s another great photo by Paula J. Garner (PJ Bailey), who generously allowed us to use it. The original appears at http://www.pbase.com/image/13944129, and you can see more of her excellent photography on that site as well.

I loved working on this picture! Here's a b/w sketch which starts with the usual outline method, then, among other things, uses KPT6's equalizer filter, which lets you select the pixel radius you want to sharpen or blur.

This color version has, besides the added color, an "abstract" layer blended in at very low opacity.

I used custom filter set to -1 in upper left corner blended in difference mode at 50% opacity over the outline. Did a few other minor things, then colored it all blue and painted some pinkish color on the skin with a brush set to color mode. Last used a pattern adjustment layer to make it look like denim all over.

very nice Phyllis! I really like your new sketch effect, both in color and black and white, it looks very authentic, and suits this photo nicely.

Phyllis stunning on all three. The last is very neat with the look of her on denim.
The eyes on the B/W dramatic.

What a nice portrait to work with..

Phyllis..Very nice sketch renditions..You know me, I am partial to the colored version..Great work!!

I started out by hand tinting a sketch.. Then applied a faded drybrush filter..with a very faded canvas effect..

Then one of Buds new oval matt treatments..

Phyllis --- wonderful --- just wonderful.
All three are just stunning.

Jerry - Love the soft look without lossing the attitude! Great!

I followed Al Ward's tut on sketches -- then went off on my own. Added texture overlay - dirt. Played with Hue sats - Brighness contrast. Created another layer did another find edges, erased everything but the outline. Flatten, dup layer added lighting on bottom layer.

Jill..Very artlike..The rough texture definately goes with the girls pose..Like it.

Jean..Nice use of lighting effects..

I decided to give this one another try..I thought this portrait lends itself to a b/w technique originally posted by Lisa Neal on DPreview..It involves changing to b/w and using the dodge tool to lighten the portrait using different brush sizes and opacities..
The eyes and mouth are sharpened and masked into the softened pic..
