Thanks Craig, now if only I could remember exactly what it is I did.

As usual with this kind of thing, I had a rough idea of the direction I wanted to go, and just fiddled around with it till it looked something like.

I know I upped the contrast, did a shadow mask and darkened the shadows, did a Left/Right gradient mask and darkened the RHS a tad, and finally used a spotlight filter from the left. What settings or what other minor tweaks I did I couldn't say.

Love everyone else's work, too many for me to do a piece by piece precis, but you've all managed to see something different in the same picture and expressed it in your own way. That's what I like best, seeing all the different interpretations.

Re: Another interesting face

Wanted to play too. I used something called "Paint Engine" (?) don't have a clue how to use it, just played around and then played around with AHB.

Re: Another interesting face

For Paint Engine, follow the thread below. Also highly recommend Impressionist Plugin too (just search this site and you can't help but find links for it; lol).

Re: Another interesting face

Nice work , Alcar, you're really getting the hang of it.

If you had said that it was done in Painter, I would have believed you!

Re: Another interesting face

Palms - Thanks for the lead about Paint Engine.

LKroll - Thanks for the link! I also need to re-visit the information regarding Impressionist because I think I did something wrong when I installed it .
