Creative Portraits: Mother and Son - Contributed by Legacy

Legacy-Art (aka Elle) contributed this photo on behalf of a friend.

She requests:
* No distorted/abstract interpretations
* To only post interpretations here at RetouchPRO, not at other websites, including your own.

She (and I) would appreciate it.

Happy creating.

~Danny~

Hi Elle, arts not really my thing, but loved the picture, so thought I'd have a go for a change.

Hope this posts OK, had to resize and compress a lot to get inside 100K.

Very Sweet Photo..

Very madonna and child like photo. Thanks for sharing it!
Thought I'd try and give it a pen & ink/watercolour feel. Always did love the mixed media warmth.

I have no idea since it's 2:30 am how I got to this end actually. I just played with it til it felt right.
I'll keep better notes next time!

Welcome back, Teri:

I'm glad you found your way over to the photo-art form and gave this one a go. I know what you mean about staying up late and losing track!!! (LOL) I hope you'll play along on more of these.

Very nice, Christine. That's one of my favorite brushes.

Judy, I especially like the first one. Which of the Virtual Painter effects did you use?

Thx for the VP options. VP WC can generate a nice effect and some great colors.

You're very kind, Judy. As a matter of fact I'm experimenting with a different kind of process. It's not "there" yet -- and may never "get there," but if it does I'll definitely share the details.

When my wife looked at these this morning, her response was, "You're going to upload THOSE?" Not exactly the kind of remarkable remark I was looking for, but I'll keep working at it! That's half the fun.
