Beautiful Baby!!

I set blending mode to multiply, and somehow played with that Art History Brush. I'm not crazy about the results on this one, but I shall play some more and continue to learn.

What a Happy kid!

I wanted to capture those sparkling eyes.

desaturated
duplicated
inverted and changed to colour dodge
Gaussian blur
removed unwanted distractions like the background
new layers with some colour set to overlay

Fizzgiz - you did very well with the a-h brush. Getting in that much detail is not easy.
Karyn - Ariana's eyes shine like jewels! Very good work!
Btw - welcome to RTP!

Fun baby

As requested, here's one from one of the guys.

Much messing around with filters in Elements2 to cleanup & simplify the image. Took the result into Painter & autocloned using the Impressionist cloner brush on a new layer. Applied 3D Brushstroke surface texture on the new layer. Back to Elements. Softlight mode for the autoclone layer. Duplicate, LightingEffects, Decolor, Highpass. Softlight mode with some masking to selectively enhance the texture. Added a touch of canvas texture to top it off.

-Mark
