Thank you for your kind words.

Important!
The more vivid colors came from preparing the image before smudging began. With adjustment layers I cranked up the Saturation and messed considerably with Selective Color settings before merging their effects on the original Background onto a new layer.

Smudging only smudged the "new" colors.

Great creations! I went to the above link and could only download the thumbnails. How do you get to the high res images? I clicked on the small image, nothing.Also control/click, still just the small one. I have a mac.

Thanks

Some very nice renditions! You folks are soooo good!

Here's my attempt at a Gauguin look. Not exactly Tahitian Women, but it was fun.

Nevermind the download problem above. Tried a different browser and it worked.

Asian Girl

Very nice work here...

I worked in Studio Artist and PSCS. I used Photoframe to get the rough edges.

Thanks Craig. I don't know much yet about Studio Artist except it is lots of fun.

I tried a ink sketch of the same girl in PSCS.
