Elle, Thank you
I started off in PS by fixing the red eye and restoring her gorgeous blue eyes, then I increased the size and resolution and cropped to 8 x 10. Extracted Emma from the background and put her on a new one made from a clouds layer with colours sampled from her clothing. Played with hue/sat and contrast a bit then removed the noise with Neat Image.
Cloned in Painter IX using Jeremy's Mish Mash brush for the background, Captured Bristle for her hair and Soft Wet Acrylic for her face and clothing. Dodged in some highlights on her clothing and added some texture in PS.
Hope that helps
Cazubi - I love what you did, she looks like she's in an old painting. Really lovely.
Pam thank you
Its gorgeous, so where do i get this "Jeremy's Mish Mash brush" from?
And i will have a try at the painter 9 now i have seen your picture here!
As far as I know, you can only get Jeremy's Mish Mash brush with the Painter IX Creativity book by Jeremy Sutton. It's a great book for learning Painter, I'm still on the first chapter and I've learnt loads already !! The book comes with a CD full of goodies and the brush is one of the ones on that.
ok, not being happy with my last one, i decided to do another, but with a more conventional style. i just want to make a better pic of the little girl. the original picture had quite a few things wrong with it and it took me a while to sort out all the things that bugged me with it, but i think i've got a passable shot this time.
doubled the image size to get more detail in corrections
cropped the image
altered the background with a selection and gradient fill
corrected color tones with contrast layer, levels set to color, and color blending
reduced noise and grain with texture preserving smooth and edge preserving smooth
smoothed out some odd textures with smudge and clone
added lighting effects with illumination/lights
more minor corrections with smudge
more lighting effects with illumination/lights, especially to bring out her face
i wouldnt call this a studio shot; it's more bordering on studio versus photo art, a combination of both. but such an adorable little girl needed better treatment
