Creative interpretations: Portrait - Bara

I liked the crop on this shot. Looked like it would be a good one to interpret.

I ran across an incredible gallery a few days ago.
http://www.pbase.com/sunartique/sunartiques_digital_art
It inspired me to try something new. I have a long way to go, but it's going to be fun trying to get there.

The gist of the process was paste the face as a new layer and set the blending mode to soft light, then added a pattern fill layer over the top.

Really liked the eyes. So I cloned the hair out of her right eye. Cropped and duped the BG. Ran smart blur, radius 1. Used a hair smudge brush on hair. Ran Brushstrokes - Angled stroke twice, once at (15,5,3) and once at (85,5,3). Used a soften edges smudge brush to work all edges. Added a mask and painted lips and eyes back in. Flattened, added texture, and framed.

Cheryl:

VERY inspired. Nicely done. One of the most creative effects I've seen in a while.

Thx, too, for the pBase link. Sunny does beautiful work.

Catia:

I blatently stole your idea about the eyes. An inspiring move on your part. Her eyes really stand out.

Mine is a mishmash of varous layers, as usual...
* Photoshop Find Edges
* Photoshop Colored Pencil
* Impressionist Conte: Unsmudged Monochrome
* Impressionist Pencil sketch: Detailed Monochrome

C--great idea opening up her eyes--they do have great impact.

Danny--great effect! I really like that look.

I'll never have Sunny's creative vision, but I'm bound and determined to figure out the mechanics of the techniques she used.

Something Different

This one is a mix of xero abstractor and buzz and PSP8's Scratchy impasto.

Good stuff everyone! Cheryl, the petals remind me a bit of the high Victorian collars that women wore back in merry old England.
I did a levels adjustment then used Amphisoft Simplifier. Then erased back to natural the irises.

Cheers

I started with Trimoon's portrait tut (my first time).
I did not have all the tools in the tut -- so it did not come out good, so I just kept playing with filters till Igot a look I liked.
One in color the other in BW

These colored chalk effect images are great. I love the way everyone is making the most of her eyes.

Makes me want to put my Speedo on and jump into those pools of blue!
