Used Painter to make a pencil sketch with pebble board paper texture. Added a light colored overlay to give it some warmth. Such a friendly face!

Everyone has such great interpretations of this very good subject. I enjoyed working on this.

Worked on the subject in PS using ink outlines, smudge tool and angled strokes.

Created background with a green/blue gradient. Added stained glass texture, smudged that and added angled strokes.

Used Painter Classic, Lighting Effects, to highlight face.

Hey, stranger. Nice to see your entry.

I like how you utilized this combination of tools/methods to get this painted look. Don't stay away so long next time.

Great work Palms. It just seems that your piece screams for a little noise.

Hi Danny!!!!

I know it's been quite a while since I've been on the photo art forums, but RetouchPRO has grown so much that I've spending more time in other areas.

There is just "something" about Carlos that inspired me to take a crack at this one.

Good to see you again.

Lorraine

Carlos

I'm trying to learn studio artist and have finally gotten around to producing some stuff.

At any rate, here's my rendition.

Nice, Phil

I bought Studio Artist (Mac) when it first came out, but never upgraded it. Talk about a terrible interface, but you could achieve some wonderful results.

Filter fun.

Haven't played with Van Gogh as much as I would like. I did change the color setting to none (the other color was even too much for me). Some GIMP bumpmapping and am done.

PS: Sorry for the quality. Had to save at 17%.
