The "hard" way looks wonderful to me Ro. And what a romantic spin you put on her, you you.

Thought I'd give her a haircut and change her eye color. Cropped her and imported to Painter 8, applied Image Hose: Spray Size P Angle R Leaves. Loaded back into PS, Impressionist: Style: djrOil24 (maybe my fave!). Lens Blur on Background and Lighting Effects on both background and foreground layers.

Cheers
Dave

That's a LOVELY soft romantic look (and a little sexy, even - she has those 'come get me' eyes!)

Mostly just a clone...

Its hard posting this after Ro & Duv, as my effort looks a bit harsh in comparison. Regardless:

I used ajcutler's rendition to start with. (Nicely done Alan, so good I couldn't help "borrowing" it. Hope you don't mind.)

In Painter8, I cloned in 4 layers using brushes from the Conte category, adding more detail with each layer. Bottom layer - SquareConte22, next was DullConte15, then TaperedConte8, and finally the same brush resized to 4. Save as a PSD file and loaded into Elements2.

Here I duplicated the Square22 layer, set to Multiply, and lowered the opacity. Changed the Tapered8 layer to hard light (making brush stokes and added color more apparent), adding a layer mask to localize the strenght of the effect. Added a light texture.

-Mark

I couldn't resist another go at this one. Danny, you can quit holding your breath now. These were done in Painter and tweaked in Photoshop. Thanks for the inspiration guys.

Does that mean I can pick my jaw up from the desk, too?

You've been using Painter now for what? About a week and a half? -- and getting results like these? You have certainly confirmed my prediction: "Janet will take to Painter like a duck to water."

WOW!

...just when I was thinking "I don't need Painter" along comes Janet with a beautiful showpiece....
(where's the little green envious smiley?)

Although I did find the second post a little too dark, but that's maybe a question of taste.
