Aged painting.

Still experimenting with this process. I did some saturation/color/contrast adjustments and then used GIMPressionist Dotify preset. Added, on a duplicate layer, Flaming Pear's Pixel Trash to further enhance the sketch look of the piece. Some additional nuiances (lot's of steps that I can not remember, but the bulk of the piece was accomplished by the steps I outlined earlier) and done.

Re: Creative Portraits: Asian Girl

Nice one Alex. I like the chalky effect on this one.

I do have one question. And it is a question rather than a comment or critique. Why do you not blur or smudge the AHB squiggles slightly after the main subject is revealed and finished?

Color tweaking, etc., simplification and new background in PSCS2, then Twisted Brush watercolor. Blended back with a little of the retouched original & added texture in CS2.

Re: Creative Portraits: Asian Girl

Thanks for bringing this one forward Joe. Used PaintEngine poster2 preset for the effect. I don't think she looks sad, and a fine looking young lady.
