Hi all, some nice stuff on here, I thought I'd try another smudge (I do enjoy these old gadgies) this one was the hardest I've done! I think it's because of the glasses and his hat. Anyway here it is........John

Glad someone keeps going back in the files and bringing these images back. Some are really worth another shot.

So here is my shot.

I usually use a combination on most everything I post. This is probably Buzz, Gertrudis, layering, blends, and saturation enhancement. I say probably since I usually just play with the image until I like what I end up with.

I also have a sketch PSP script which helps to bring out the lines in a face etc.

Don't always write down my steps, but I can seem to get pretty close on this one each time I try. Depends on the original image as you know.
