Anyway, I really like the style of those 2 pictures

photofun sent me a pm asking me how i did mine. thanks, btw, photofun but, ya know, like i said when i posted it, i really dont recall and psp doesnt save your workflow. i seem to recall a few layers and i've been experimenting with ultra sharpening, so that might have been part of it. by ultra sharpening i mean i run a treatment as an early step of sharpen more about 3 or 4 times. just depends on the image. obviously i also cropped it pretty tight. there may have been a brush strokes layer in there too, but i'm not sure. i also seem to recall playing with a contrast/lighten adjustment layer and warping a curves adjustment layer quite a bit also, but that's about all i recall.

so, sorry photofun, but i really just dont remember. this was one of those images i was just playing with for fun.

Craig

Thanks Danny and thanks Panpan for this fine face!
I have received great pleasure, to paint it. I used Painter, Photoshop and Impressionist. And 15 or 20 layers with blending mode...

Thank you, corona, for honoring us with another of your fine works.

Did you use Painter's Artist Oils brushes on this one, too? If so, which variants?

Your technique for oil paintings is the best I have ever seen.

Craig,

Thanks for recalling the work flow. I did get some clue to make the excellent portrait.

Corona, how DO you get the canvas texture to 'show through' like that??
Your work is fantastic. I realize you struggle with English. Maybe someone else can figure it out too.
