What a beautiful subject. Thought an illustrative like rendering was in order.

Re: Creative interpretations: Portrait - Stephanie sipping vino

Is she flirting or serious? Great image to work -- I decided that first the guy would imagine the "dream" version, and then she would take action...

Re: Creative interpretations: Portrait - Stephanie sipping vino

peter, i like that first one. good tones and interesting shadow work.

lk, i like that one too. nice detail work and good colors and shadows.

pavel, nice.

cj, on the first, it seems a bit washed out on my monitor, like one or two steps too much on the highlights and on the second, i like where you were headed with the color additions, but the lighting seems inconsistent and she's faded into the background too much.

alex, i like what you've been doing with the ahb, but on this one there is a distracting artifacting or something, like the canvas texture didnt quite make the save for web transition correctly. other than that, very nice.

Re: Creative interpretations: Portrait - Stephanie sipping vino

Peter i too like the first one better but both good posts

Ikroll think you are onto a winner with this technique

Pavel great work again

C.J. i prefer the dark mysterious one

Alex Super ahb work again I agree with Craig the texture hasnt done any favours can you post again with out the texture ?

And here is two from me one using one of Danny's actions i found recently and a ahb version

Great work everyone

Craig, PalmsThank you.
The distracting artifacting you talking about hide the imperfection of this work.
It was napkin on the background

Craig, Palms, thank you.
Palms, fantastic work. I find it difficult to choose between two images, love both. What was that action you mentioned?

I ran the action on a duplicate layer merged all except the background, changed the blendmode to luminosity and tweaked the colours etc
