I finally decided to try and make use of a piece of ice used to add some sparkle in Pin Light.

Creative Portraits: The Face

I only used ArtMasterPro. If it is helpful I based the workflow on this Step by Step Guide http://www.donmccrae.com/-/donmccrae....asp?cat=18260.

Cheers. Don

Welcome, Don. That's a terrific looking pencil-sketch effect. Yes, it's very helpful to know you followed the step-by-step guide.

I hope you'll manipulate other images with ArtMasterPro so we can see more of its capabilities. This is very impressive.

duv,

that's quite a change for you. i like the glitter, but i also like the crop and treatment of the face. very well done!

don,

excellent work. one thing i'd love to see on that one is a slight more desaturation of the skin, giving more contrast in the sepia tones of the face and background., but that's just a curiosity/preference thing. very nice piece!

Craig

A little oil painting here. Impressionist and a layer to burn in the details.

First the eyes and mouth also had a very hard and dark sketch, but I reduced it to make her look a bit more dreamy..
Waving hi to all - my first post here.

Drach, have seen several of your interpretations - I really like your vision - I "see" in a similar way.

So many talented artists here, just browsing through everyone's work the last week or so has inspired me. I'm a beginner with big dreams, lol. Will get busy today & work on some of the great projects I've seen here.

A question/suggestion: the young, thin beauties are great, but I also love to work on other "types" as well. Maybe soon?

See you all soon with some output, I hope. Neasa.
