Baby Peek-a-boo redux

Way back in 2002, my daughter Josephine was featured in a Mini Challenge:

http://www.retouchpro.com/forums/sho...ight=szczyrbak

Y'all did an amazing job back then.
We'll she turned 5 years old on Monday. I took this pic at the Aids Memorial Grove in Golden Gate Park, San Francisco and gave myself a mini challenge. Trying for the japanese anime look, specifically Nickelodeon's Avatar.

What do you think? Actually I used this tutorial for most of it.

Anyone care to give it a go? Actually I'd love to know how to put different clothes on her.

Welcome back. This is a positively great pic...

I moved your thread to this forum where it will get a little more attention.

My daughter will be 10 in a week and I can't believe how fast the last five years have gone. Don't blink.

Here's a cut at a black and white conversion, something I've been tinkering with of late. It's a combination of the individual color channels, blended with layer masks.

I'm looking forward to playing with this one some more!

Yes, I remember this little munchcan; haven't any cool idea's for this one, but I'm thinking about them.

Pretty cool idea Craig. lol

Paula and Palms: both fantastic sketches.

Dan: like the conversion. I am thinking along the lines of a monochromatic myself.

Well I decided to do a color sketch instead.

Talking about weird; I thought I saw this earlier and did a rendering of it, but I guess I didn't submit it then (didn't see it on ImageShack anyway).

Anyway, I used Sharp Control (a standalone program from Vtie) to create the illustration look. I then used Xero's Supersmooth filter for some cleaning. Simple simple simple. Did some touch up smudges and cloning as well. Here's the full-res version (over 1.4 MByte). I attached a very low quality crop.
