Elle, well done. Neve, interesting effect.
Here's one more from me...i've included the layer palette.
One final touch, not incl in layer palette, filter- render- difference clouds layer, lowered opacity, erased parts overlapping blondie.

Lots of varied looks for this pretty girl. She somehow got stunning green eyes in my version. I created a new background for her and altered hue/sat etc. Increased size and resolution and cloned in Painter with Jeremy's Mish Mash (background), Soft Wet Acrylic (skin, clothing), Captured Bristle (hair). painted in some extra detail and colour for her hair, side of face and top of arm to fill in the blown out highlights. Textured in PS.

Fabulous Pam, I'm thoroughly enjoying what you're doing with portraits. Keep up the great work whatever you do. Jeremy Sutton's Mish Mash ?, is this a one of tute or part of book, CD? I like it heaps. I have probs with bg's.

Thanks Neve - Jeremy's Mish Mash comes with his book Painter IX Creativity. It's a great book and I love the goodies you get with it too

Re: Creative Portraits: Blondie

Sort of diffuse glow and poster edges blend here.
