In playing with the outline and blend modes, I came across a version that I liked. I did need to edit it a little as the original lines were a bit more confusing, but I still like this one.

Chantel's reply To Everybody

Hey Guys!
I was totally blown away by the response that photo got when I came into work today! You guys can do some really awesome stuff. I origianlly had Roger take some photos of me for my mom's birthday...she wanted a big one for the house and I wasn't too keen on a photo of myself really huge so I thought it would be neat to do something different to it, That way people would look at the effect and not so much the photo. She ended up really likeing it...I am going to send her a link to this thread so that she can check out all the different things that could be done to it. Thanks Guys!

I used an almost-but-not-quite skin tone color painted on a separate layer set to overlay. It was much too orange, so I played with hue/sat levels until it looked more natural. On new layers over that, I used black and white set to overlay to bring out the shadows and the highlights of your face. blurred a bit and lowered in opacity.

Thanks Amanda! I'm beat after traveling home today, and hope to head to bed soon. I hope to be able to spend a bit more time here and therefore be able to make more coherent comments.

As to the Avatar - that picture was taken over 10 years ago. Maybe sometime soon I'll get brave enough to post a current image.

Everyone, what great and inspiring interpretations You all made me work my butt off just to keep up with you!

Here's my try. The first thing I did was to smudge the entire photo with the smudge tool, using light and dark modes. I cheated and used the airbrush also. I painted out her clothing, and improvised a little. I then used a very small brush and painted her lips, earrings, eyes, headband. Blend mode color. I paint right on the image without selections, I do use layers. I painted the blk/wht image. I then went to Styles, Photographic effects, duotone texture. I used luminosity as the blending mode, about 55%. Flattened. This is one beautiful lady, it was difficult to mess with perfection

Lisa, thank you, I'm glad you liked it. I must say I enjoyed your sketch version very much. It's one of the best I've seen I'm still struggling with the sketch thing, I'm never happy with I come up with

Wanda, that's great! Looks like one of those airbrushed portraits from the 60's.

I doubt you have to work to keep up with us, though. You're too talented!!!
