Creative Portraits: Trevor

This is my Grandson, Trevor. I want to take all of your creations, put them into Photostory, with music, and present it to him as a gift. Have at him and let your creative juices flow.

I'll let you know which ones are his favorites.

Oil pastel on Canvas.

Just providing a link (over a meg). Sorry for the roughness, but the bigger the final size, the longer it takes to render. Had to make some compromises, but I hope you like it anyway Photomaster.

Great idea, PM... Trevor's lucky to have a grandpa as talented and visionary as as you. It was fun playing around with this one. Thanks for the opportunity.

I'll probably do some more. This was fun!

You amaze me again Alan. This looks very painted. Assuming djroil24# , which other two (or 3 if I guessed wrong)?

- - - - - -

Mine... #1 Just some adjustment layer work on the BW. #2 lots of selections with an inner shadow, drop shadow, stroke layer style applied to each of many layers. Then to some layers I applied various a adjustment layers to vary the effects, e.g., posterize, hue/sat (colorize), hue/sat (sat = -100), threshold, levels. After creating the text, I applied bevel/pillow emboss, drop shadow layer style.

Thanks for the comment Al; I like your three styles Impressionist too.

Danny, that photo montage version really works for me; did you use an action to create this?
