Creative interpretations: Portrait - Teen Fashion (hat and tie)

(this one scares me a bit...it's a glimpse of my daughter in too few years)

First I duped the BG, set blend to screen, and opacity to 40% to soften the shadow. Ran Smart blur at radius 1 and flattened. Decided to crop a little.

On the first one in PS7, I duped the BG again and increased the brightnes and contrast. Ran Cutout with levels = 8. Ran smart blur at radius 2 and increased saturation. Flattened and added texture.

On the second one in PSP8, ran one step photo fix and the Watercolor script. Added texture.

A nice collection of interpretations.

Rondon, you earn bonus frequent flyer miles for you inspired composite. The reflection in the table is especially well done.

- - - - - -

On mine (after Image Adjustments > Desaturate> ) I cut out the background to isolate the subject and duplicated the isolation layer. Then I applied the watercolor technique described here: [insert link].

Dragged the isolated subject layer to the top of the layer stack, applied Find Edges and changed the blend mode to Overlay. Merged these two layers after fiddling with opacity a bit. Yikes! The eye under her hat had gotten so hosed you couldn't recognize it. What to do?

Fortunately the picture was taken "straight on," so I was able to lasso around the "good eye," Ctrl+J to copy the selection to another layer, Layer > Add Layer Mask > Reveal all, press V to engage Move tool and moved new eye to the vacinity of the bad eye, Ctrl+click on the layer name to select the eye, Edit > Transform > Flip Horizontal... then spent some time moving, rotating and air brushing with black on the Layer Mask to blend new eye under the hat brim.

Inserted a layer below the isolation layers, filled with white and applied a gradient. Flattened all layers and did some cloning to soften some of the sharp edges. Added the frame for effect.

Used define to smooth skin and AutoFX Mystical lighting.

Like your first one Catia, and all the others as well of course but Catia's really stands out.

Thanks for the comment Christine. I appreciate it. I like the glamor look of your version.

Nice job on the eye Danny. That dark eye really bothered me.

When I saw Mike Finn's new popArtist action, I had to try it on this picture! This picture was made for it.

This is a wonderful action, I did the usual levels adjustment, slight buzz, etc., before running the main action. After the main action, I ran the adjustment action once, then tweaked the hue and saturation, added a tiny amount of grain and a little texture.

ps - Danny, I can tell you from experience that teenage daughters are difficult, exhausting, and enough to make you want to pull your hair out. But, if you pick your battles and keep your sense of humor, you can survive!

Wow! pOpArTiSt (hard to type) did a very cool job on this one, Patricia.

That Mike Finn is such a talented action author. He just amazes me with the actions he cranks out -- and I think makes anyone who uses his actions a better artist by exploring new possibilities.

RE: Teenage daughters
No experience yet. Mine will be eight in July, but I can see the handwriting on the wall already. The next 15 years will turn (what's left of) my hair grayer than it already is.
