Creative Portraits: Ariana

Here's a doll for you to play with. She is a gorgeous 8-mth old, belonging to a very close friend.
I'm sending this in with her mother's consent.

Hi Judy....

In between painter 9 and the brushes from trimoon cd in photoshop i came up with this, if it wasnt 2am here i would do it again as i am not too happy with it, but if you want the 300 dpi let me know this one is 72.

Elle

Thank your friend for allowing us to draw or paint her she is beautiful!!! what a joy!

Ariana in Pink

She's gorgeous Judy and thanks for the photo.

Because I couldn't see any hairline as it blended into the bg too much, I used PSP8.1 Auto Contrast to lighten. Then Neat Image/Reduce Noise. Resized the image to 140% 72 dpi.

Duped bottom layer and filled the bottom layer with pink.
Eraser/Dry Brush all over bg. Merged visible.
Paintbrush/Dry Brush/White over bg, plus a darker shade of pink.
Smudged all of the bg.
Made a rectangular feathered selection and placed on another
pink background. Some more edge smudging.
Duped bottom layer.
L2 - Impressionist/Watercolour/Soft Daubs on fine paper/ Mode 50%
Duped L2 - Multiply Mode at 30%
Merged all.

P.S. With a second look, it looks like I have her wrapped up in Candy Floss???

Neve, Christine, C.J. lovely renditions! Thank you.
Neve, yep candy floss alright! Christine, very nice watercolor effect. C.j. the eyes they do look pretty. Is that a hat or bonnet??
Here's my creation. I Went thoroughly overboard, i think.
Impossible to recall the steps, though there's a bit of vp wc and airbrush in it, also initially i did a bit of cloning in painter, and added some render clouds and wc layers in ps7. There was a final luminosity blend.
