Well this one was fun, first time I have not wanted to bite painter. Played with the clone tools and used wet oils for this one

thanks Janet, very kind,, and sure Cass, always happy to share. I got Photographic Edges 6 upgrade (I had PGE4). I first simplified the image with buzz, then brougt it into PGE6 and used "Edge Bush Oil." Then used edge "volume 03; AF001.AFX," (part of the same program) adjust the edge over her blouse and then cloned the edge and broght it to the top, over her hair. I added a texture to the background, but being this is new software, not sure which one... if I figure it out I will post later. Saved it and then brought it back to Photoshop and use the art history bursh to bring in some brush strokes, especially around the neckline of the blouse. I have 2 gigs of ram, but this software is much more time/ram intensive than the former version.... so as long as it took on this smaller image, am curious as to the time invovled in a larger hi-res image .... all in good time!

My view went in a slightly different direction. I thought that such a beautiful neck should be lavishly adorned ...

Heap of thanks goes to Swampy.

Used her line art sketch technique along with Impressionist (and a few other things) to create this pencil sketch. So so simple.

Re: Creative Portraits: Bonnie Brunette

Pete I really like this style you have been working. I personally like it better nice and smooth like this one.
Ro that is a great sketch, not over done, or so filter looking.
Stoch, something happened to her hair? and maybe add a slight drop shadow to the necklace. very neat idea.
here is my version mostly smudge. and Dodge and Burn.
