@ Gilbert, great painting, especially well done in choosing the colors and a prime job on that fuzzy hair.

@ Palms, hard to see, is it AHB? Very well done, whatever you chose :-)
yes Amica it was the ahb used

Reflections in tinfoil.

Haven't done one of these in a little while. Also, I agree that I need to figure out to milk out more realistic details concerning the signature collage version.

Re: Baby Pic

Thank you too for playing, Steve. Nice sharp look.
@Lyle, that sure looks grungy :-)

I guess I owe you all a personal version. Reason for the delay is that I've tried to smudge and failed miserably :-) Now I came up with a version that is somewhat presentable, but still struggling on hair, though. Maybe some of you Smudge-cracks have some advise?

Amica firstly that is a great smudge, and they do take time,I think most smudgers struggle with hair and eyes
and there is not set rules which i know is annoying but just think of all the different hair colours and styles and you begin to understand I have 3-4 brushes that i will use on hair depending on which one works best for that particular image at the moment the one i use most is
the Dry brush tip light flow from the standard ps set set at about 50%. When fininished run the dodge/ burn tool over the hair to add a bit dimension to it. and of course the dreaded word "practice"

Yeah, nothing special here. Tried a couple of things that I didn't like, so just gave it a retouched kind of look.

THNX....

Re: Baby Pic

one tip on smudging hair, amica, i use a 'rake' brush. yeah, funny name but it works. you basically 'rake' the hair, just like raking a garden or your leaves. just align the 'rake' as if combing the hair and push/pull/paint.

the rake brush would look something like this: . . . . . . or, in words, a spot, space, spot, space, spot, space and so on. you can make the spots large or small, opaque, semi-opaque or almost translucent for whatever effect you're after.

and, without much tweaking, it can make a decent eyebrow brush, also.

Re: Baby Pic

Thank you, Palms and Craig, I will have to try the dry brush and I will certainly make a rake-brush. Will let you know how they work out.

Re: Baby Pic

Trying a sketch. I attached a highly compressed version, which I'm not happy due to all the compression artifacts. here's the high quality version.
