Chantel

Fun for all -

This is a portait of Chantel, my assistant at our studio. She does wonderful work, my wife and I could not resist sharing it with everone here. The first post is the original portrait that I took of her, if anyone wants to play with it I know she would love to see the different interpretations ...

The second post is Chantel's art work on her photo. We thought it was so different and fun we could not resist sharing it with you. It was done completely in Painter.

Good looking lady......She is very brave to let us play with her image.

One of you has a very steady hand, as that smudging around the eyes is not for the faint of heart..... Interesting results.

Roger,

What a beautiful shot. I agree with Goldcoin, those eyes on the smudge version, thats pretty incredible.

I thought it would make a good sketch, and then I tried to colorize.

Roger - thank you for the image and thank Chantel !

Have to agree with everyone here on what Chantel did, the eyes say it all.

Lisa - you have got the sketch down! and adding the color - very good.

I added color to the lips and eyes, did a cut out then light emboss.

Spinnnz beautiful color, beautiful sketch.

Jill. I like the coloring of only the eyes and the lip. Very nice.


I just could not think of anything other than what a great job Chantel did on herself. All I could think was "how we see ourself". So I worked on that grain.

Cropped added Chantel rendition of herself. Burned around the eye.
Worked opacity on the layers.

Roger - beautiful, thanks for sharing.
Lisa - nice colorization - looks like a lot of work, but worth it!
Jill - great look - modern art!
Jean - even more 'artsy' - looks like something on the wall of a studio in NY.
Danny - bw action - looks hand-drawn.nice
Here's mine ... probably doesn't qualify as 'art'...

Looks arty enough to me, Bill. There are a lot of dimensions to this beast.

Did you colorize the eyes and/or lips a bit?
