Margaret...The liquid pens worked well...nice one!
Steve...Great look to your picture...it has such depth!
Jeff...Looking good in blue!
Craig...What a good idea...Like it lots...
Janet...Many layers resulting in a great image!
Kiska....Love your painting...I like the flat paint look very much...do you know what i could use in Painter to get a similar look?

Here is my attempt at a smudge...enjoyed doing it too...Did it all in Photoshop CS2....

Re: Creative Portraits: Man in Hat

Thanks kraelin! Thanks 'pk'!

I don't know what the equivalent would be in painter to the flat brushes. I can post some strokes if you like. I think it might have to do with the SA software. It's supposed to be totally different than Painter.

Re: Creative Portraits: Man in Hat

Kiska...Just been playing with the brushes in Painter and the dull conte is half right...so many brushes it will take me years to get to know them...but its fun! Thanks....

Craig...Glad you like the smudge...I am determined to master it! But a way to go yet! Congratulations on your appointment to moderator!!!

Patricia....

I have no choice but to confirm reluctantly "yes - it was your sketch I used "

I used layer mask to show background...changes could've been lost...

I'm not happy with the white version , I lacks something...contrast(?).

Re: Creative Portraits: Man in Hat

thanks, patricia, but you have to preface my name with 'professor' now

pavel, it's fine. i was just curious what happened to my changes. i think the mask explains it

nice sketch, steve.
