I do so love experimenting. I never know what kind of results I'm going to get; and I'm often surprised. This was one of the happy surprises.

Ran Mike Finn's cartoon action, which as fine, but I wanted more. So I posterized the original and smoothed the edges with median and gaussian blur then posed the Finn action on top, once with multiply and once with screen. Sweet result.

Hello, Quickmagic...

Welcome to the Photo-art forum.

Glad you gave this one a shot. We always enjoy having new folks join in the fun.

Janet: We posted almost simultaneously.

"Wanting more" = stretching and growing. That's a good thing.

Oh what the..

Desaturated, ink outline, Faded, then Flaming Pear Kyoto Color. Messed with the curves. Drank some tea, watched Fedderer win. Saved for web.

Ah yes. I remember this. Very nice Alfredo!
I was a little intrigued after running Dave's Infrared action how the nose and far cheek disappeared leaving the details to the imagination. Finished with Filters Unlimited Aged Film.

Cheers
Dave

Duplicate that layer and invert. Blend=color dodge.
Apply Gausian Blur.
Levels adjustment layer.
Merge visible (3 layers).

Here's my version, and a cropped closeup to better show the effects.

This is becoming addictive. I may soon be in need of a 12-step program.

Is there another challenge image with which we can play?
