Kelly-Anne

Wanted to take a try on an Amerindian children's face (they got lovely faces). Curious to see what you, so imaginative and talented people, can do with this pic.

My try on PAinter

Not good enough to draw a face yet so started from a photo I took of Kelly-Anne (one of my students) and worked in Painter 7.

Used the Clone to get the contours. For the background, used Smeary Flat with white, low opacity and various Feature settings. For the hairs, took the Round Camel Hair with Variability V set to 6-12 % and different colors going from olive to dark browns and black. For the face, created a new Color set from some of the colors of the original and worked with Round Camel hair, Smeary Flat and Opaque Flat, again with variability set to 6-12 %. For the eyes, I just cloned them with the Camel Oil Cloner. For the sweater, used different original colors mixed with 'picked-up' colors (from the colors wheel) with Smeary Flat, Variable Round and Variable Flat and, still, Variability V in the 6-12 %. Saved in TIFF. In PS7, boosted the Saturation a bit and added Canvas texture.

From what is 'hand made' : the hairs are not bad I think ; I've missed the eyebrows, the contours of the eyes, and the nose. I kinda like the mouth. And the overall look, I think, is not so bad. What do you think ?

Thought I'd try a painted portrait of this youngster..This was done in ps7 using Phyllis's newest painting technique..

Mik..Your Painter potrait is really nice..I am still struggling with that program..I saw the painting that you did from scratch on dpreview..Really excellent..

Thanks, Jerry. If you're struggling with Painter, you're definitely not struggling with PS7. You made a nicer portrait a so short time. I worked about 8 hours to do mine ! I'll have to learn Phyllis's newest painting technique.

Sanda,
and she's still beautiful on your image. Nice work.

Wanted to create an old style look... Used one layer of palette knife, and another of glowing edges.

Well, spending more time actually doing now than reading about how to do.

Anyhow, I used David Rowley's Hollywood Bowl action, played around with Saturation, Hue a bit. Worked with one layer (Find Edges I believe) setting the Blend Mode to Darken.

Added a tiny highlight back into her eyes (not sure I like em...but, let me know).

Added the vignette, and Viola!

Pretty quick and easy...but it allows for me to see how others wrote actions and then what changes I can make with those.

Such a great photo! Thanks for letting us use it.

Mikl--I really like the strong graphic feel to this one. great texture and flow.

Jerry--This is lovely! I was practicing Phyllis' technique this afternoon and found it very difficult to acheive smooth results. Everyone I did came out looking like they had lizard skin. You did a great job on this!

Sandra--Wonderful job! She's lovely!

CJ--I think you did a terrific job of capturing the American Indian spirit here. This almost feels like it's one step away from being a sand painting.

JR--I like what you did to her eyes. Good call!

BK--I always enjoy the direction you take your images. I'm afraid I'm not quite that brave! You consistently turn out wonderful images.

I did my usual portraity thing. I'm still trying to find the best background color for my blend modes, though. I just can't get the depth of color and lighting that I'm after. Can't quiiiiittte reach it. Maybe I need to start using Painter....
