Creative Interpretations: Desiree

I often call into Stock Exchange so hope you don't mind me posting a couple of photos today?

A beautiful lady with a glowing complexion.
Started off with high-key, about to post, changed my mind, duplicated and g'blurred, hardlight-blended with original. From there, aniso, smudge, and a bit of dodge tool.

beautiful girl

ok... I think this is what I did.

Duped BG.
Loaded the Red Channel as a selection and made it a new alpha channel.
Used Levels to ramp up the contrast and named it "sillhouette".
G.Blurred it by about 2.
Loaded the Blue Channel and made it a new selection.
Used Levels to make it a drastically high contrast channel and named it "eyes".
G.Blurred it by about 2.
Loaded sillhouette and inverted selection.
Ran Artistic: Colored Pencils - 4, 8, 25.
Inverted selection again and ran Imp.: Pencil Sketch: Detailed Soft.
Inverted Selection and ran the same.
Faded to lower Opacity.
Loaded eyes and ran Imp.: Pencil Sketch: Detailed Colored.
Faded to lower Opacity.
Deselected. Ran the same filter.
Faded to lower opacity.
Loaded eyes again and inverted the selection.
Ran Imp: Pencil Sketch: Soft Light.
Faded to lower opacity.

I think that's about it.

beau :)

jaykita - very interesting result... the aniso gives it "another dimension"
glikster - lovely chalk-like effect



i've been again messing w/ the art history brush + impressionist combination... hopefully one day i'll look up in the thesaurus what the word "moderation" means

Thanks for posting Neve and great renditions so far!!

Started with Impressionist: djrOil plus default settings
Sent to Painter 8 and smoothed the skin a bit with Chalk Cloner.
Back to PS and ran Dave's Simplifier action and pumped up saturation a tad.
Ran Velvia action
Frame by Extensis.

Cheers
Dave

jaykita, what beautiful hair - if only I had some, you could paint mine any day.

I'm getting hooked on this.

Just posterized and ran Image -> Threshold to give it the illustrated look, then ran Artistic-> Cutout to smooth the look. This interfered with the gloss and beauty of her hair, so I tried to mask it back in somewhat.
