Re: Smudging resources

I have been trying different hair brushes ( again ) but was recommended on another forum by Ronnie to use Linda's smudge brush set at about 30% opacity as it seems to give a more painted look,and is quicker
I have had a try and have posted it for you to see along with the original if you want to have a go ! !

I had already gone back to using this brush on most of the animal smudges i do but at about 50% opacity for a softer look

the photo is from morgue file larger version here

Any one else found different/other brushes useful ?

Ahhh Palms a very good picture indeed. But When your on form I have seen some of yours rival this, dare I mention cats at this point - no I won't

BTW the blouse in this one was as hard to do as the hair.
