I'm in the process of evaluating Art Master Pro from Fo2pix (www.Fo2pix.com).

This interpretation was rendered by the "Sensible Pencil" Art Wizard. The first image is how it came out of AMP.

The second was fine tuned in Photoshop (Levels, Brightness/Contrast and painting over a few areas to tone down or remove the AMP effect) and the texture was applied.

Lovely image to work with! Several Impressionist settings, a touch of Virtual Painter, and a little texture.

Haven't had much time to play lately, but this one was too nice to pass up.

Glad you had time to work on this one, Patricia.

If you recall any of the Impressionist settings, I'd sure like to know which ones you used.

Smile Green Dress with Studio Artist

This is a great image to work with. I used Studio Artist and PScs2.

I think this is how I did it - not completely sure of the order of the Impressionist settings.

1. Using Cheryl H's technique, dupe the image, change to CMYK mode, and drag black channel to the original image. Load that channel as a selection.

2. Impressionist - Damp translucent watercolor, some funny thing call djrOil24 that I picked up along the way, , and faithful chalk. I faded each setting until I liked the look, before going on to the next one.

3. Invert selection. VP oils, tweaked and then faded. Deselect.

4. A little smudge here and there where the edges were too sharp. A little tweaking with Curves, and Secective Color.

5. Trimoon's canvas texture.

That's it. Thanks for your impressionist settings, I use them frequently.

I love what is being done with this very nice image. I did an oil using Painter oil brushes, back to PSCS to add some of my custom textures,smudge on texture layer (in overlay mode) to make it look more natural. Also some hue/sat adjustments, and some color glazing.
