Creative Portraits: A photo for the ladies

My friend has generously given his permission to post this picture on this site. Enjoy working with this classic style portrait. If anyone wants a higher res version, please pm me and it can be emailed to you.

I do retain the copyright on the original and on any art copies and ask that this version or any version done NOT be posted on any other site or be used for any commercial gain.

NOW we're talking! A photo that a woman can enjoy visually while working on Photoshop. Thank you Janet, and thanks to your friend Troy for his generosity.

P.S., I like your taste in friends!

Troy

Ro/Ra, We HAVE to notice -- it's too well done NOT to notice!

Neve -- Lovely! You really brought out his eyes!

Legacy -- Delightful! Soft and yet it retains his character.


Tried another version...

C.J, Ro, Neve, Elle, good job everyone!
Mine was in painter 8, clone tool, loose brush strokes, then surface texture added.
Thanks Janet, enjoyed doing this for your good-looking friend!

Rather than comment on each picture, I'm just going to say, "I'm glad ya'll like Troy's picture. I'm sure he will be pleased to see the results."

Here is mine.
