Used the Bristle Brush Cloner, then imported into Photoshop to do colour correction and lighting effects.

Talk about a lifetime of toil! I wish I could see her hands. Dodged her creases. Selected her face and parchment and old film plugins. Inverted and ran MF Watercolor and MF pOpArTiSt actions. Lightened her eyes.
She may have been a beauty when she was young, but she had to do what she had to do.

Cheers
Dave

Outstanding results folks

Legacy and Axle - folks have been trying for ages to copy this talented guy's style...

There's a Photoshop Action (perhaps more) here that you can try on your images. (Just noticed CREX had already posted this link also.... )

http://www.atncentral.com/download.htm

I've been keen to give it a go myself but haven't found the time yet....

Painter 8

Impasto/Round Camel Hair on Woollen cap
(Gray and Purple parts)
Impasto/Wet Bristle on Yellow and Red Scarfs
Blender/Detail Blender 5 (Hat, Scarves)
Blender/Just Add Water on everything except
Face which wasn’t done at that point.
Blender/Smear – Jacket Only
Cloner/Soft Cloner to bring back some detail
On hats, scarves, jackets and edging.

The hard part (for moi) came next…the face.
Started with Cloner/Wet Oils Cloner 10
Blender/Detail ? 5

Did not like result at all. Tried to fix with

Oils/Round Camelhair then
Acrylics/Wet Soft Acrylic 10

Opened in PSP8.1 and used darken tool
To emphasis wrinkles more.

Here's my first crack at using Painter 8. Background in PS Textures: Burlap plus Aged Film plugin. Not sure what I'm doing yet. Too much? Not enough? Comments welcome. Thanks Axle for the Toot!

Cheers
Dave
