Nice Gal

found this at http://gallery.use.net.ru/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?misc and thought it could do with a little something.
I don't know if I have given it, maybe you can?

Another attempt at model artwork

Attached is a very low quality crop. Here's the full high quality rendering.

Re: Nice Gal

Hello Peter....Nice photo you found for us to play with...Thanks... I like the effect you have got with very subtle colors..
Great Lyle...very modern...
Steve...Both are really good but i do like your sketch...something I need to work on!!!
Great sketch from you Palms...it glows!
Dan...Like the effect...Did you use cut out first or xero???
Where is Alex????

I did two watercolors in Photoshop CS2 with the AHB, the smaller one after i had done the brush work i used highlight and shadows...the larger one I used curves...Framed with an action...

Patricia....

Great image, Peter. Thanks for posting it. I moved it here, to "portraits" -- a better place.

==============

Steve... I especially like your sketch effect.

Details, please...

==============

Photoshop:
* AKVIS sketch - for the edges/outlines
* Impressionist > Charcoal > Default and Conte > Faithful

Corel Painter
* To add a few brush strokes via Artists Oils variants (set to clone)

Back to Photoshop...
* Clone over a few blobs
* Merge layers
* Apply sharpening
* Several Hue/Sat and Selective Color adjustment layers to mess with the colors
* Added edges via Edit > Stroke command

~Danny~

Re: Creative portraits: Nice Gal

IMHO her hair is the feature of this portrait. Here's my take. Also balanced the skin tones.

What do you think?
