Started with the same process on one of them. The other is mostly Diffuse Glow done differently on each channel -- then I did most of the sketch processes on that. Kinda... sorta... I used Brush Strokes -> Dark Strokes on one of the layers on the first one and at least one of the last two -- I don't usually like the effect, but after a fade effect, I liked it on this image. Of course, this lady is so pretty that she can look good even when hidden under a bunch of filter effects.

Re: Creative Interpretations: Desiree

you know how you look for a 'look' and go all around it and get near, then lose it again and go looking some more? well, i finally found the look i've been trying to get for months now. it's a high contrast, but softer texture and high saturation without losing color integrity.... or something like that

nancyj made a comment on this look i've been looking for a while back. it was about a very high contrast style i was doing and it was just never quite right. i knew it, she knew it and so i veered off again.

well anyways, this is very close to what i've been looking for for quite a while now no filter forge filters... no 3rd party filters or plugins at all. this is all psp.

i treat the image as a photo to begin with and clean it up a bit and treat it a bit and then do some blurs, blend modes and unsharp masks. and then i whack it with a warped tree, just for peter

Re: Creative Interpretations: Desiree

ok, thanks, cj.

what i was thinking on that first one was just a mask on the skin and then saturate it a bit more. just wanted to see how it would differ.
