Creative Portraits: Carlos

Carlos and I worked together a few years ago. We had lunch together last week and he let me snap a few pics.

Be gentle on my friend!

Danny... a great shot. Carlos looks to be a fun guy. I like the character in his face!

Be gentle with me.. my first attempt at "painting" in PhotoShop. I don't get to do this kind of stuff very often, but I used a chalk history brush. Fun project!

He's definitely a character - head to toe, and indeed has broken the Fun Barrier many (perhaps 'too many') times.

Thanks for being first on this thread, Swampy, and of course I'll be gentle! Glad you had fun and got to try something new. For a first time, I'd say you whacked a home run!

Watch out: The more you do this type of thing, the more addicting it becomes.

Retinex Clarified b/w.

In a b/w mood today. Though if I clarified the image as a b/w, it would look good. Apologize for the jpeg jaggies since I saved it at 33% quality to keep within size budgets.

Interesting face. I used the two impressionist styles djroil24 and oil smudge with a b&w layer above.
