Hair

What brush are you using for the hair, and at what opacity ?
I do find with longer hair that the pen works better than the mouse, It does take longer and needs more patience for the mouse but it can be done !

Palmer

p.s. Is this any better and what you are after ? Sorry only had time to do a bit of the hair, but if i get chance will have a go at one of the photo's

hey Palms,

Yeah, that looks really good....

Did you use PS or Painter? All I've got is PSE2, so I'm limited on the tools and brushes I have and I can't run most actions...

Also - the main image I'm working w/ is big: 8x10 @ 300dpi, some of the artistic effects work well w/ screen size images but on really hi-res ones, the options sliders won't allow that large of an adjustment. Is this clear? hehe Does PS and Painter have this limitation?


Anyways - thanks for the help, everyone...

Hi Jav,
Know what you mean about the size of some pics being a problem....what i do and its probably incorrect is i make the picture to a more manageable size and then in my cannon camera program called photo impression 4 i bring it back to size again, i have been happy with the printouts A4 size...but then again i am not a pro and do most things by trial and error...

Kind regards Patricia Kay

A word for Palms....i love your pic of the girl the colors are just perfect for me....

Hey Jav i use just ps7 and no other program or action for this effect, and sorry but you lost me on the size thingy (not that technical) i do know that some times the size does effect effects ? so i do try altering them and then putting them back to original size (have i lost you now ? )
Can you add to the brushes in pse2?

Glad you and Patricia liked my interpretaion funnily enough it was the colours that worried me the most ! ! ! !

I dont claim to know all the answers to this technique as i am still trying to improve, but ask a question any time ( anyone )

Welcome, Dee...

In a nutshell smudge painting is basically using a "smudge tool" to give the illusion of paint strokes.

We haven't done much of it here at RetouchPRO, but if here are some meaty tidbits:

* http://www.innographx.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=18
* http://www.innographx.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=3745

or check out some of the posts here, you'll find information in bits-pieces on how others do it.

I'm not trying to scare you away by pointing you to other venues... just trying to point you in the right direction.

Glad you joined us. Keep the questions coming.

~Danny~
