Seeing your interpretations just now just made my day. I'm glad you stopped back in. Your creativity like this one and humor have been missed!

Tried for a stetch effect. The more I worked with it, it became less and less like I really wanted. But I liked the result, so I posted it anyhoo.

I know what you mean. I'll often start down path A and somewhere along the line switch to B, C or D. That's one of the beauties of digital vs. traditional: It's much easier to change your mind in mid flight.

Glad you ended up where you did on this one!

legacy,

brick and mosaic tile? i like the look. nicely done

janet,

also very lovely. but there's something about the mottled white and sepia that seems off a bit, like it's in the wrong places. perhaps the whites for highlights in the traditional places?

Craig

Don't you just hate that

Found accidentally an affect I quite liked, but do not recall what I did to get there. It was fairly simple insofar as I know I inverted the image, and I know there was a gaussian blur in there somewhere and I ended up with what I thought was a fairly interesting affect. Having gone back to the pic I cannot seem to duplicate what I did, so I just colourised the entire pic for a little more interest and sharpened the eyes a little.

I sure do. Used to happen to me all the time. Still does once in awhile.

In any event, the look you achieved with the blurring, selective sharpening and color toning is quite unique. Well done.

Question: Do you find the watercolor effect rendered by Painter 6 to be superior to Painter 8?

Speaking of WC, there are some excellent examples in your gallery, such as:

* http://www.pbase.com/goldcoin/image/46072682
* http://www.pbase.com/goldcoin/image/44482724
These are just supurb...
