First post, hope I placed it in the right place

One of my favorite subjects to photograph and to use in my digital art are traditional painters at work. This was a painter I noticed while walking down Old Arbat Street in Moscow one morning on my way to the translation company I freelance at sometimes.

I did this using the smudge setting in Painter Essentials, then in Photoshop I used Topaz Adjust to bring out the detail a little, then I used OPTIPIX to nudge it a little and smooth out the unwanted detail along with correcting the contrast, color and white balance. I think the came out pretty well, I like it and used in an article I wrote for PhotographyBB Online Magazine on digital art. Feel free to pass judgment on my work and make suggestions.

Thanks, just trying something out to see if it works or not. Sometimes it does, but more often it does not. Thanks for taking the time to look.

[Just getting used to posting!] I like it too. I love art that draws you in to the scene and makes you wonder about the people and the place. Your does that.
