Created the basic sketch in Photoshop (Smart Blur/Edge Only + Stylize > Diffuse > Anisotropic), then jumped over to Painter 8 and experimented with some of the Watercolor brush variants, using them to apply color based on the original image.

Back to Photoshop for a little more fine tuning and application of texture.

What a beautiful lady!

I started by doing the b&w desaturate invert guassian blur thing. I then used a lot of layers. After bringing the color back in, I used virtual painter colored pencil (faded), diffuse aniso, buzz pro simplifier, rough pastels, and selective color. Also did a little work on the eyes.

First I opened her right eye a little. Then did my India Ink method. Then increased saturation, sharpened, and added texture.

Lovely image of a beautiful young woman.

Just enhanced colors with Color Range selections, and added texture and brush treatment with Soft Light and Overlay blending modes. Hopefully enhanced whites of her eyes without distorting...

Wow, these are all great renditions. For mine I chose a classic pencil sketch look.

Nice renditions by all.
Decided to do "another" smudge, after not being satisified with what I initially did. I went for a softer look this time without using the liquify tool on the eyes.

Ran the adapt.equalize filter to bring out some detail
Used the smudge tool with various blend modes (15 to 50 opacity). Afterwards I softened portions using the blur tool.
Enhanced colors with Nik filters
Changed the color of her dress with "color replace".
added some layer styles

Well, I used Painter Classic. Made a clone of the original, made sure clone color was clicked in Art Materials. Used the Dry brush on the hair, opacity around 26%, Used the Just add Water brush on the face, very small airbrush on eyes. Opacity I usually lower, never 100%. I turned off the clone color, and used the airbrush, and Just add water brush to reshape her clothing. Opened in PS and used selective color on the image. Sharpened and appplied Texture.

Smile THANKS to everyone

I started this whole thing with a simple request, and I must say I am overwhelmed with the response and beautiful work each of you has posted. It's amazing how you can start with one thing and wind up with so many excellent variations. It would be hard to choose a favorite but I am really struck by the one Wanda just posted. It seems so soft and beautiful. Perhaps this is the way I see my wife. I wish I had her talent and know how. I never expected so many images, but now I'm beginning to feel selfish and hope there are more to come. THANKS to everyone.

Terry
