palms,

you'll notice in my profile that i never give out my address, isp, email address or phone number sometimes anonymity is a good thing.

i've done any number of these over the years, usually guys in female bodies and i always get responses. most take it for what it was meant, just good natured teasing. so, no death threats yet

it's actually a little off too. i shld have skewed the head or body a bit.

Craig

Wow! Some creative interpretations on this one, gang. Well done! (Now I can't get the "Mr. Clean" jingle out of my head. )

- - - - -

I started out by creating a few layers using the Impressionist plugin. Then I checked out a different thread where Steve and Catherine were talking about Buzz. Inspired by their banter, I trashed the Impressionist rendered layers, dusted off Buzz, duplicated the Background and applied the Watercolor.stk setting. I followed that by duplicating the Background again a couple times applying Photoshop's Find Edges filter + Desaturate command to one, and Smart Blur (Edges only) + Invert to another.

Hide all Layer Masks were added to the top layers and white was airbrushed on them to reveal selective details. A new layer was created and all visible layers were merged into one. I did a little cloning to get rid of the shadows behind his head and used the Smudge and Blur tools to soften some of the edges a bit.

Finished up by adding some "noise" and tinted using a Hue/Sat adjustment layer set to colorize.

What about an enhancement of the picture, as i tried to remove the green from his head, and didn't like the effect!

I just love the Mr. Clean. I needed a good laugh today.

Lots of great work here. And I love the frame on the last one.

I especially like this one. I'm on the notification list for when a PC version of Studio Artist becomes available.
