Re: Creative Portraits - Lotsa Curls

Peter another great find love this one and think it will get more than one visit.
how did you do yours
Patricia yours has a mystical feel to it
Frank nice paint and frame belongs in a manor house now
Ikroll love the effect but i really like the crop that wasnt done for artistic reasons ! ! ! ! !
Danny like both the second one is quite serene looking
Kiska like your post very much and agree strange chick has a look of gothic about her, a couple of uk fashion designers used this look a year or two ago on the catwalks (although this does look a bit tame by their standards)

i dramatized her a bit

Glad you liked the crop too. Tried to eyeball a Venusean cut (i.e., all four corners different), but I'm not a true artist, so I'm sure someone could have picked it better.

Re: Creative Portraits - Lotsa Curls

Some absolutely brilliant stuff coming out here.
Sorry Palms I can't remember every thing I did. There was sharpening Levels, add noise, I used an action to emphasize the details a little more, and there is more than a little Impressionist plugin as well. I know I added a texture but it does not show up very well here.

Peter

Danny I am still messing with some of your actions some good stuff in them (if I could understand it all that is)

Re: Creative Portraits - Lotsa Curls

since i saw 'victorian' in this image, i went for victorian makeup... airbrush, airbrush, airbrush, adjustment layers of hue/sat and brightness/contrast. i then re-lit the whole with 'illumination'.

Re: Creative Portraits - Lotsa Curls
