I've got to catch a plane soon, so no time to detail the "how to," but I can tell you this is a combination of Dry Brush and Microsoft Impressionist effects.

Speaking of which I still have two legit copies of MSFT Impressionist for sale for anyone interested. Contact me by PM (click link under my name at top of post).

Gotta run.

Here is a version done in PSP8. One step photo fix, edge preserving smooth, brushstrokes, and a texture.

Here's mine.

What a beautiful girl.


I brightened the eye color, duplicating the layers twice in screen mode, and masking everything but the eyes. Next, I duplicated the layer and ran Amphisoft's sorting-shaman in Min-I-Max mode to get the squares. I then masked the eyes, nose, and mouth to restore the details.

Nice responsive picture.

Here's what I did.

1. Simplify with my India Ink method

2. General color boost using Saturation. Targeted color shifts using Levels, Color Mechanic, and Nik Green Contrast Filter with layer mask.

3. Smudge and clone.

4. A little bit of brushing in Painter.

JR Elena

Just a basic technique I've run across and that seems to really work well with portraits of this type.

Some Smart Blur, Smudge, a bit of USM (Unsharp Mask), touch-ups here and there and then added a small amount of texture. The second is the same without the texture, not sure which I like better.

Great portrait to work with.

Very good, Jeffrey. It has a nice natural media feel, while still retaining the details of her face.
