A 90% solution.

Sorry for the low quality attached. Here's the high quality version. I outlined my technique here; yes it's a smudge, but it's still 90% filter/layer property work (I know, but it's next to impossible to simulate a smudge 100%, but I'm trying).

Also added a lighter version too; please let me know which one you would like best.

This was a fun image to work on. I dusted off my Corel Painter and used a quick clone of the image. Her face was cloned with a low opacity oil brush and blended. Her hair was cloned using a chalk brush and blended and then I used the distorto brush to get this effect.

Danny she is a sweetie, you caught a lovely expression!

Steve I love your softer version, just gives a lighter mood!
Oltenius beautiful effect! especially like the way the shading on her face came out!
Palms both are lovely looks, can't decide which I like better!
lkroll, I like the lighter one, the colors just seem clearer/more pure
earthman, you have added such a lovely mysterious look to her

I was looking to do more a pencilcrayony look but ended up with something different
I vignetted the background layer, made a sketch and pasted over the background as another layer set to multipy and ran impressionist with slighly different setting on each.

earthman: I wish you posted a larger version because I really like this.

Sherry: thanks for the comments. Yours do have a texture that can almost be felt.

oltenius: You actually inspired me to do mine. You did a good job at your Aniso (been experimenting with various techniques on other forums for a few days now). I've recently learned about this term/concept (been doing it inadvertently for a long time, but now I have a name for it).

Ikroll, I'm glad to see what you wrote. I'm not an expert, but 1-2 attempts of my work seems to be a success! Thanks for your appreciation...

Somehow not much turns out like I see in my mind's eye. Nevertheless, I liked the result of my experimentation with Impressionist and smudge combined. There are a few areas I could have worked on harder, I agree.

Thanks Danny for the cutie. She has the features that cameras seem to enhance even more.
