Tyeise:

I see this image caught your fancy, too. It's one of my favorites. Some creative interpretations, here. You sure make Paint Shop Pro turn cartwheels! Very nice effects. Well done.

Alexdem:

You pictures are amazing! What program(s) are you using: Photoshop? Painter? Paint Shop Pro?

Chuck:

You're right about PhotoDraw 2000 not being produced anymore (it may have been superceded by Picture It! or the like) and I should have mentioned that.

PD2K is readily available through "used" channels such as eBay, however. A legit copy sold for $30 recently.

RE: MSFT impressionist plugin
I've read this was originally part of an early MSFT product (perhaps MS Publisher v1.0?). Since it was an .8bf, it could be (and frequently was) ported to other applications that supported plugins. It used to be available on various sites for not completely aboveboard downloads, but sources seem to have dried up. If you run across it, check it out.

Danny, wow! I just love what you did here with PD2K!

Tyeise, you acheived a nice simple outline. I like all your varieties but prefer the "touch of color" one, I think.

Alex, nice work with PS7 on your colored pencil version. Just one suggestion: You might want to erase the double nose line.

You guys inspired me to take another look at Hope. Here's a new color sketch.

Alexdem, your color pencil version looks like an artist's rendering. It's hard to believe it came from a photograph. Very nice work.

Danny, thanks for the compliments. It's easy to make PSP 8 do wonderful stuff. Part of why I enjoy it so much.

Phyllis, I appreciate how you always have something nice and helpful to say to everyone. And I always look forward to seeing your many different versions of images around here. You are part of what makes this place special. (Touch of color is my personal favorite as well. )

Tyeise

Several layers - from bottom up...smart blur, blend mode to multiply. Curves, blend mode to Luminosity. Underpainting, blend mode to Darken. Flattened, did an auto Curves (wow - what a change that was!) and a final levels adjust.

First of all - my apologies to everyone who posted on this thread - I really haven't had the opportunity to look at all the pics (this darn work keeps getting in the way of my fun!). Here is my rendition - done in stone. I really did not get as much detail in the hair as I hoped (working in granite is tough!)

BK, Bravo! That's breathtaking! LOVE IT!

Bill...WOW! Another great result with your lifted outline technique! You really have to write up a tutorial on how to do that. I am assuming it's done with selection modifications and selection to new layer, but then do you do something else to it?

Here is my version of Linda Logan's Hope.
Done with sketching (my secret sauce) and Virtual Painter.

Re: Lynda Logan's Hope

Just playing with Redfield Bas-Relief, Diffuse, noise reduction, Motion blurring (though you wouldn't tell) and Blending/Fading modes.
