Had another go starting in Painter.

Cloned
Using Fine Camel Brush on hair
later blending with Rd. Blender Brush
Face - Simple Round Wash Brush
Blended with Rd. Blender Brush
Simple cloner to bring back detail of eyes
mouth, straps, necklace and hair.

Opened in PSP8.1

Spent a great deal of time smudging
cloning, darken/lighten tools.

Some lovely entries as always!

1. Duplicate Image
2. Desaturate new layer
3. Levels adjustment: Slide the white point slider far enough to almost blow out the whites and then slide the grey point slider to the right to bring back some detail.
4. Add a little Gaussian Blur (but bring back the sharpness to the eyes, mouth, and nose).
5. Duplicate Gaussian Blur Layer
6. Apply a Vignette
7. Duplicate layer
8. Apply Artistic Filter – Plastic Wrap. Set mode to Soft Light. This will further brighten your image

Jaykita,
Love the radiant glow you added.

CJ,
I really like the posterized results!

Axleuk,
Stunning results with Painter. It now has a lovely soft glow. I also really like the leaf border. It frames her face nicely. Excellent work!

Neve,
I really like the pen line strokes. They give the photo an artistic sketch feel.

Thanks!

You could easily apply some selective coloring or artistic brush strokes for some fun variations.

Hard to compete with all these wonderful entries but here's my attempt at a tutorial in current issue of Digital Photo Effects. I hope the resizing to upload hasn't lost too much.

Nice. Can you summarize the steps. This is a "keeper" process.

- - - - - - - -

I haven't messed with Painter in awhile....

Preparation in Photoshop:
* Duplicated Background
* Applied Impressionist #djroils 24 3-times
* Duplicated Background again and dragged to top of layer stack.
* Applied Impressionist #djroils 24 1-time to this layer and applied a layer mask. Airbrushed black on the layer mask to reveal some of the layer below.
* Duplicated Background again and dragged to top of layer stack and added a Hide All layer mask. Airbrushed layer mask to restore eye and mouth detail.
* Added a new layer and merged all visible (Alt + Ctrl + Shift + E)
* Applied Photoshop Brush Strokes > Spatter for a little variation
* Saved, duplicated the image and flattened the duplicate
* Opened the duplicate in Painter
* Applied the Grainy brushes from the Blender group to give it more of a brushed look
* Closed Painter.
* Opened in Photoshop and applied some Unsharp mask
* Added another layer, filled with 50% gray and applied Texturizer filter
* Lowered texture layer opacity to about 30%
* Cropped and saved.

Whew... Just in time to go watch Super Bowl XXXIX.

Update: Per Christine's suggestion below on a second version (built basically the same way as described above) I applied Painter's Surface Effects function which did indeed bring out the stroke texture.

Thank's again, Christine.

Very nice effect Danny. It really looks oil painted.
